Restaurant Bun Antwerp

Voor mijn verjaardag wilde ik er even uit, weg van de sleur en niet te vermoeiend voor onze kids. We besloten een dagje naar Antwerpen te gaan.

020 Review: Restaurant La Vallade

De titel zegt wel review, maar eigenlijk is het niet helemaal waar. Restaurant La Vallade is niet nieuw voor mij, want het is het favoriete restaurant van mijn zusje.

Restaurant Jaimie van Heije, Ouderkerk

Ik heb het al een aantal keren gezegd, maar ik zeg het nog een keer, ik ben mega fan van Instagram (volgen jullie me al? Dat kan op @culinessa).

Curaçao tips van Culinessa

Ik weet niet eens waar te beginnen. Curaçao voelt net als een tweede thuis intussen. Waarom? Omdat mijn mama er geboren is en daar is opgegroeid en er nog steeds heel veel familie en vrienden wonen. We gaan dan ook, als het even kan, er elk jaar naartoe. Mijn omaatje van 95 woont er ook […]
