Happy Easter

Let’s kick off this new collaboration with a Holiday Meal! I, well I can’t just say I any more now that my awesome sister is with me on this blog, but I guess in this case I can say that we don’t really celebrate easter for the traditional religious aspects of the holiday. Instead it is always a great excuse to prepare a special meal to enjoy with family or friends, which is a fantastic thing to do no matter the season. Here are what our easters looked like:

Liesbeth’s menu

  • Deviled eggs as a canapè
  • Spinach, pine nut, feta and dill hummus
  • Pea and ricotta dip
  • Beet, goats cheese and fig salad
  • Low and slow braised lamb and beef ‘stew’
  • Spring greens with black ink pasta (Acini de Pepe pasta)
  • Ricotta cheesecake with Madeira syrup, blueberries and figs

Hannah’s menu:

  • Deviled Eggs to start
  • Honey & Thyme Gazed Ham
  • “Scalloped” Potatoes (this recipe was gluten and dairy free and was surprisingly satisfying)
  • Roasted Asparagus
  • Dinner Rolls
  • Creamcheese Pound Cake with Berries and cream.

Hannah’s menu is a bit more in line with the traditional American easter dinner, but we covered both ham and lamb, spring veggies and the obligatory deviled eggs!

Welcome to my lovely sister

Lies&Han
A couple months ago my sister approached me  with the idea of starting a shared food blog. Initially, the idea was to create a new collaborative blog, but why, when this one already exists, is hungry for more posts and there is no reason why we can’t continue with this one together.
My sister is a wonderful writer and a fantastic hobby photographer. I am really happy to have her join in the food blogging fun. Hannah lives in the United States so our collaboration will be from a distance but hopefully we can use that to our advantage. You can expect more food but now from the two of us!
Because we live so far apart from each other we always have to put in some extra effort to keep in contact and to be a part of each others lives. It is easy to forget the little things that you can take for granted when your family lives around the corner. I am so excited she is joining me on this blog, one more way to keep us together and have fun in the meantime!
Welcome Hannah!
