There is nothing so basic in life that can give me so much pleasure as food.
It is hard to think that some people don’t like eating, or only have a very restricted diet. It baffles me when somebody tells me they don’t like vegetables! (Seriously, how can you not eat an entire – and such an important – food group?)
To be honest, a lot of it comes trough upbringing, as a kid you should be allowed to try everything. Even forced, because let’s be honest who liked Brussels sprouts or olives the first time they eat it as a kid?
That’s why I’m so glad that one of my cooking heroes, Jamie Oliver, has taken it upon himself to learn kids how to eat healthy and in the meantime combat obesity. He even declared today Food Revolution Day.
So hop on over to sign the petition and see how you can make a difference.
And in the mean time, I’ll treat you to some very yummy healthy recipes.

Inside the lovely
It’s that time of the year again to find the perfect spot for the summer holidays.
After last year’s wonderful trip to Thailand, we’re looking for something a bit closer by. Not quite sure where yet: France, Italy, Sweden… all options are still open…
I would love to hear some suggestions tough!
Not only do we love free online magazine Oh Marie but what do we spot on page 26 of the new Ahoy Issue? Indeed Carrie Can gift tags! Read the full magazine over here.
Together with the current neon trend in fashion I’m spotting more and more flurescent doors about. I haven’t actually seen one in real life yet but these photse sure make me covet some colour for my own boring white doors!
It seems spring has lost his way and is taking his time to get here. It’s still so cold that not even my tulips want to start blooming.
Oh well, I’m going to post some lovely flower pictures to tempt spring to drop by.
Style me Pretty
An inspiring quote and some great photos fitting the words.
These words remind me of…all the things that make me happy:
Dine & Dish
I know not healthy: too much sugar, too much fat… I don’t care, I was born to bake and I think all my friends and co-workers agree!
To sleep is an act of faith
You know that moment in the morning when you wake up and realize it’s another hour before your alarm goes off? That you can roll yourself once again into the warmth of your duvet or into the sleepy arms of your loved one? Well that moment is pure bliss.
Show me one photo of a Golden Retriever puppy (especially if it’s one showing pink puppy belly) and I start acting like a 3 year old.
– Hanging out with my friends & family
C’est la V
What can I say, how can anything else make you so happy as being with the people you love and care about.
– My shop
Carrie Can Shop
And last but not least what makes me happy is designing all the wonderful things for my shop. It’s sometimes a frustrating and very commanding job but It’s also one of the more rewarding things I’ve ever done.
So, what about you? What makes you happy?
Hopidihop! Happy Easter everybody! Go get those chocolate eggs!
Just realized that this weekend is Easter! (March, you naughty month, where did you go?!)
So I better start decorating some eggs! (Or skip the decorating part and just eat lots of chocolate ones…)

Did you do any Easter decorating?
