Narrow side street in snowy Amsterdam, Netherlands
Provinces of Holland
No. 1 breakfast in Holland: 'boterham met kaas (slice of wholewheat bread with Gouda cheese)'. #greetingsfromnl
Dutch tradition: "BESCHUIT MET MUISJES: serving ‘beschuit met muisjes’ (Dutch biscuit with little aniseed balls) to celebrate the birth of a baby. Rose for a girl, blue for a boy."
I had a tiny pair of wooden shoes just like these pinned inside of my wedding dress to represent my Dutch heritage.
Dutch hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles) Remember these from when I was little, I really need to get ahold of some of these!
Kroketten...another Dutch food I could eat myself very fat on! These are a meat treat that are deep fried and the mustard is heavenly!
STROOPWAFELS (Amsterdam) - What it is: Warm, gooey caramel sandwiched between two layers of crispy baked batter. Where to get it: Street carts throughout Amsterdam sell this yummy Dutch waffle.
