Thank you for visiting my blog!
My name is Lotte and I live in The Netherlands. I’m a mother of 2 beautiful children, 7 & 5.
I have a passion for good food and I’m in love with developing and improving recipes. I’ve always loved baking & cooking since I was a child. Whenever I came home from school I would never “just grab a peanut butter sandwich…”
Oh no…, I had to scan through every single kitchen cabinets so I could create something special out of it. I even made a deal with my mom: she would clean up my room, and I would prepare dinner in return. When I was young, I also loved to watch and learn from Nanna, my best friend’s mother. Helping Nanna in the kitchen was never a boring job.
A few years ago, after intensive researches along with trials & errors, I switched to a gluten-free and cow-milk-free diet while minimizing the use of refined sugars was another task at the same time. With the changes in my daily diet, I felt a lot better and was able to maintain a good energy level throughout my days. Such lifestyle also brought me a new challenge: how to create something tasty within these parameters!
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, therefore, I would like to introduce an important disclaimer:
I OFFER NO WARRANTY THAT MY RECIPES ARE COMPLETELY ALLERGENE-FREE.
Your thoughts and feedbacks on my recipes will be very much welcomed, so please leave a note when you prepared something from With Added Love.
I would like to dedicate this blog to Nanna, my great inspiration in the kitchen. Unfortunately she could not read my blog anymore.
