For Libelle’s XL issue #09, I cooked huge bowls of hot soup. As spring is nowhere to be found here in freezing Holland, we might as well have a comforting bowl of soup I thought. You can find the recipe for Pasta e Fagioli here (in Dutch), or you can click on the picture itself….

What’s your favourite simple & healthy dish for a normal weekday? Photography: Jeroen v/d Spek, prop styling:…

January 5, 2013
Elle Magazine asked Oof and me if we would like to make a page together on how we celebrate the December holidays. So this is how we like to do it.
