A is for Apple

This year I want to do the alphabet, not sure if I can find a subject for all the letters but I try to do my best.
We start of with the A for Apple.

When we came to New Zealand almost 6 years ago we bought a apple tree and this year we can harvest our first load of apples. It is not a lot but I think we have enough to make a nice "Dutch" apple cake.

Maybe when it is time for the C for Cake I can show you the apple cake. But we have to be patient for a while they are not ready yet.

The alphabet, what a great idea!!! I made Dutch 'appeltaart' last week. Yummy!
Succes ermee!

Your apples look very nice - so big! I bet your cake will be even nicer, especially if you make it Dutch style (I used to bake a cake which was called the Dutch Apple Cake with lots of cinamon and sugar - perfect for my sweet tooth!).

P.S. I planted some trees last year, so it seems I will have to wait 5 more years for my first proper crops :(


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.
