My moment.

After work I always make myself a nice cup of coffee. That's my moment. I enjoy every minute.
And what is better than a great bowl of nice coffee with a good fluff on top and some chocolate.
I bought the bowl on a garage sale and use it now every day.
This is the coffee I like , Lazy Sunday, but o so nice during the week to give you a lazy Sunday feeling.

The plunger and the milk-foam maker are also garage sale founds.
I enjoyed my coffee today with home made mixed spice cake with sultanas (kruidkoek).
Here the recipe if you want to make it;
400 gram self raising flour
200 gram soft brown sugar
1/2 packet mixed spice
1 table spoon cinnamon
black pepper and salt
approx. 300 ml. water to make a soft dough.
handful sultanas, sun flour seeds, pumpkin seed, dried apricots, oats .
bake for 1 hour on 170 degrees Celsius.

Lazy Sunday is the perfect name for a coffee! Thanks for the cake recipe - sounds delicious.

Ik zou er bijna trek in krijgen! Het is dat ik ├ęcht geen koffie lust (drink alleen maar liters thee!), maar je zet het ons wel heel erg aantrekkelijk voor zo! En die beker is natuurlijk geweldig leuk! Een feestje om daar je koffie uit te drinken!

This is the first time that I write in my blog.
I am Jacoline, me and my family emigrated to New Zealand from The Netherlands 3 years ago.
I can tell you, we went through some hard times in those 3 years, but we found our dream.

We bought a lovely home close to the beach. I spend a lot of time in our garden which has a lot of fruit trees, a nice vegetable garden and great flowers.

I love to shop in secondhand shops and garages sales are the best invention ever.
My days are filled with craft, cooking , baking and of course my 3 girls.
I try to have a beachwalk every day and on wednesday I join the quilt club.

We are still busy with rebuiling the house to make it a great home.
We like traveling and like to discover our new country.
I keep you updated with new stories, recipes, ideas and pictures every week.
