On Wednesday and Friday I always have my days off, and of course in the weekends, because our company is closed then. I always use my free days to do some refurbishing in the house, working on some creative ideas that I have or shopping the stuff that I need for all those ideas;-). These last two days were shopping days. I try to change some things in our living room and decided that it can use some mustard yellow. Soon I will write some blogs on Goodlives.nl about what I bought and what I made in this color. But to stay in that yellow color, I wanted to make a Cocktail for this Cocktail Friday with Licor 43, the Fresco 43. Continue reading “Cocktail Friday: a Fresco 43”
For a couple of weeks I thought about making something with tequila, but every time I got an idea for a cocktail without Tequila. So this week I bought a bottle of tequila to finally make a cocktail with it. And then I read on Instagram that it’s World tequila day today on this 24th of October. What a coincidence;-). But what should I make with the Tequila? For the first Tequila cocktail I start with the most famous Tequila cocktail, the Margarita. Continue reading “Cocktail Friday: a Margarita”
Summer always brings nice barbeques, together with the three of us or with friends and family.
For a bbq I always make skewers. This can be with chicken, shrimps, beef or with pork tenderloin. Every time we try new things, like these pork tenderloin skewers. Continue reading “BBQ: Pork Tenderloin skewers”
When we are talking about the Cocktail Friday at work, one of my colleagues always tells me that she drunk some Strawberry daiquiris on a vacation in Mexico. She really liked it a lot. So I thought I should really try this Strawberry Daiquiri for this Cocktail Friday. Continue reading “Cocktail Friday: a Strawberry Daiquiri”
Did you miss last week’s Cocktail Friday? It’s not you, just me. Last week I didn’t had time to write the post for cocktail Friday. But we tried the cocktail the day before and it was such a delicious cocktail, so I wrote an other post about it. You can find last week’s Cocktail Friday: Cloud 9 here.
For today we fly to the other side of the world, to Brazil again. Remember the Caipirinha that we made a couple of weeks ago? Today we made a Batida de Banana Coco. Continue reading “Cocktail Friday: a Batida de Banana Coco”
Last weekend was a very busy weekend. We had a company weekend with the team of Bailey Lights, the company I work for. On Friday I was so busy with packing and buying the last stuff for the weekend, that I didn’t had time to write and publish the cocktail for Cocktail Friday. Bailey has her 30th year anniversary this year, so for that we stayed from Friday until Sunday in the Belgium Ardennes. And of course I made a Mojito there for my colleagues;-) Continue reading “Cocktail Friday: a Cloud 9”
Barbecue season is open for a couple of months now, but the weather here in Holland wasn’t so nice. So we only used our bbq twice or so.
But the last few days Summer really started and what is better then to eat outside in your garden or on your balcony. And preferable with easy to make recipes which only cost you some minutes to make.
This Summer salad is one of those easy recipes, easy to make, with easy to buy ingredients. Continue reading “Simple Summer Salad”
I still don’t have a lot of time to make blogpost, because of working on the house. But I try to keep up with the Cocktail Friday. Just because this cocktail Friday gives such a nice start of the weekend;-). For the Cocktail Friday this week, I made a Blue Hawaiian. Read more about this cocktail: Continue reading “Cocktail Friday: a Blue Hawaiian”
This week I have been painting in the house a lot, so not much posting on Cakes and Pumps. But I didn’t want to let the Cocktail Friday go, so picked this nice little cocktail called white Russian. I already did a cocktail with Wodka (the Cosmopolitan), so I don’t have to buy a new liquor to make this cocktail. And I drink the Kahlua also pure, so the bottle was in the pocket too;-). Piece of cake then this cocktail;-) See more about the White Russian. Continue reading “Cocktail Friday: a White Russian”
Almost everyone who has been to Brazil for vacation or a business trip knows what a Caipirinha is. I think they make this cocktail in every bar in Brasil and also at home. I only visited a part in the North of Brasil, which looked a lot like Suriname. So I loved it immediately, because we are also crazy about Suriname. And I drunk the cocktail a lot in Brasil. Continue reading “Cocktail Friday: a Caipirinha”
