Thank you for visiting my blog! Let’s quickly introduce myself: my name is Lotte and I live in The Netherlands. I’m the mother of a beautiful daughter and son aged 7 and 5. I have a passion for good food and I love developing and improving recipes. As a child I already loved baking and cooking… When I came home from school I didn’t just grab a peanut butter sandwich … oh no, I scanned through all the kitchen cabinets to create something special out of it. I even made a deal with my mom: she would clean up my room in return of preparing dinner. When I was young, I also loved to watch and learn from Nanna, my best friend’s mother. I never got bored of helping her in the kitchen.
A few years ago I switched to a gluten- and cows’ milk-free diet and I try to minimize the use of refined sugars. This makes me feel a lot better and I can maintain my energy throughout the day. This lifestyle also brought me a new challenge: how to create something tasty with these conditions! That is how With Added Love came to life: not only for myself (and my family), but hopefully to inspire you with tasty recipes that fit into this lifestyle.
I am not a nutritionist, so therefore an important disclaimer:
I OFFER NO WARRANTY THAT MY RECIPES ARE COMPLETELY ALLERGENE-FREE.
Please let me know what you think of the recipes. I will be more than happy with your feedback, so please leave a note when you prepared something from With Added Love.
I dedicate this blog to Nanna, my great inspiration in the kitchen. Unfortunately she could not read my blog anymore.
