My husband's grandmother and her 3 sister's were Dutch. When my husband was very little, they would all sit around and talk about the kids in Dutch. He said they never knew what was being said but every now and then, they would hear their name. Sounds unsettling to me.
The four sisters - Ella, Nina, Lola, and Ada made lots of great Dutch food for family dinners. It was rich and it was fattening. But it was also tasty. One of our own family favorites is Panne Kucken. It is kind of like a cross between a quiche and a pancake and a custard. And now that you are thoroughly confused, here's the recipe. Most people prefer it served with maple syrup. But I like it with powdered sugar. If you notice, it already has quite enough butter. There is no need to add it to your toppings. It is also good served with warm peaches!
¼ stick butter
¾ C whole wheat or spelt flour
¾ C milk
¾ t honey
1 ½ t vanilla
Melt ¼ stick butter in cast iron skillet.
Beat 3 eggs and add to flour, milk, honey, and vanilla.

My art focuses on the delights of life, mostly on the relationship between children and animals. I teach online drawing lessons through a video format that allows interaction between the students and with the teacher.
