Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother,a grandmothe and a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!


Heaven is in Belgium

Weekly Winners, Gourmet Dinner

Weekly Winners is hosted by Lotus AKA Sarcastic Mom. All you need to do is post your favorite photos of the week that has passed. It's a great way to look back at the past week.
Today I'm sharing food photos of the gourmet dinner my friend Annie and I prepared last week.

Appetizer number one, a cold pea soup with mint.

Scampi with roasted egg plant and a Provencal Ratatouille.

As a starter we had a little herb salad with smoked trout, cucumber and sour cream.

Main course is Atlantic cod with courgette, a red pepper sauce, pesto and quinoa.

For dessert we had grilled peaches with a port sauce, pistachio caramel and Greek yogurt, a recipe by Ainsly Harriot.
