last name is Waerebeek


Thanks doug-fixed it. The scrolly letters had me fooled.


Perhaps the title of the book can be excused as wishful thinking? It comforts me to think that there's a place, any place, where everyone eats well. It's unlikely that everyone in Belgium has your home canned tomatoes and homemade beef stock, of course.

This soup sounds great.


Neat cookbook! The soup sounds delicious, too.


Mmmm, another yummy sounding soup recipe. I love tomato soups, but my husband doesn't... more for me!

Baking Soda

Hi Lindy, I was reading your post about pasta and plurals and then something Dutch jumped out! Wooha! Well okay it turned out to be Belgian but since they are our neighbours and they themselves haven't figured out what language to speak (the great Belgian divide of french and a form of dutch)...I felt welcome. Meatballs and soup are a great combination according to my children. Can I make a suggestion though? I poach the meatballs in the stock, not separately, so the juices of both stock and balls will transfer and not be wasted in the poaching water. I'll post today about my vegetable soup with meatballs (groentesoep met balletjes), had a picture waiting! Exploring yr blog for more now...Bye


Hello all- This cookbook has quite a few more promising looking recipes I plan to try....
Baking soda-you know, I was wondering about that myself-why waste the poaching liquid? I can see a separate poaching for dumplings with flour, mazoh balls, etc., because they soak up a lot of liquid when you poach them, but I don't think these tiny meatballs would do that. I will do it your way next time. I'm going to check out your blog now.


This is one of the many cookbooks I'm getting rid of at our church rummage sale next weekend; sacrilege, I know, but I've just made the arbitrary decision to quit giving house room to cookbooks that have a 5-year or more coating of furry dust on them. I did read it when I bought it and it is a good book, I just never used it.
But I had the luck to go to Belgium in 2003 when my husband's band played the Belgian Blues Festival and I can attest that they DO eat well there, especially their FRENCH FRIES, mussels, chocolate-covered waffles (of which of I ate one every day) and coffee.


Envy. The trip sounds wonderful. I've actually made quite a few things from this cookbook, and it is still sitting out in my "rummaging currently" pile.
I am lost in admiration fort your ability to weed out and discard cookbooks. I have tried many times and am almost entirely unable to do it. And I keep buying more, too. My other books are a similar problem.
When I win the powerball lottery, there will be a dining room in my newly purchased little cottage, with floor to ceiling bookshelves, and one of those little rolling ladders.


Well, you might want to check out our rummage sale next Saturday on Le Roi Rd.; unfortunately I won't be there to help out, since my husband and I have to drive to Erie to give a Retrouvaille talk, but there will be lots of cookbooks and other books going for $1/hardbacks and 50 cents paperbacks.

I used to spend upwards of $200/month on books myself and then I discovered the LIBRARY; two problems eliminated, spending all that money, and having to find space for all those books. I only buy a book if I think it looks worth either keeping or passing on to my mother.

Now, if I could do something similar with my SHOES...


Ha-Rebecca-By the location of your church, I gather that you also live in Squirrel Hill? I used to live near it, on Woodwell St-but now live the other end- by Greenfield.


Point Breeze, near the Frick Mansion. Don't you love living in the East End; it's so convenient to everything.
