special spoons by ineke hans for royal vkb. the special spoons come as a joint item with a bit of diy involved but are helping hands with tapas and pickle problems, there is a tiny one for example for things like sambal, horseradish, wasabi, a pointy fork for getting gurkins out of a jar and a perforated one to fish for olives. or you can use them for ice-cream…….chocolate ice-cream for example. image: armelle habib

muesli bars, i usually make them like this but the variations are endless. image: dietlind wolf, recipe: leonoor ottink
170 g dates, pitted and chopped
3 tbsp maple syrup
100 g naturel peanut butter
150 g nuts, chopped
140 g oatmeal
2 tbsp dried cranberries, chopped
2 tbsp raw chocolate chips
place oatmeal, nuts, cranberries, dates and chocolate chips in a bowl.
warm the peanut butter with the maple syrup over a low heat and pour it over the date-oatmeal-nuts mixture.
stir until thoroughly mixed. line a baking pan for example of 20 x 20 cm with parchment paper. i use a square baking tin for brownies of that size, but anything similar will do.
add the mixture to the pan and flatten with the back of a spoon.
cover with parchment paper and let it set in de freezer for 2 minutes.
chop them up into bars and keep in an airtight container in the fridge.
