Hello, friends. It’s so nice to have you here.
Life, as always, has been crazy. So much so, that I actually lost track of the days! Have you ever been in this position?
Recently, I asked you all some questions over on Instagram ( you can follow along at @olivetreemeals) about what you all wanted to see more of on this little place on the internet. Thank you all for taking the time to respond. It is very important for me.
As we established above, time is a very valuable commodity, so every time you spend some time with me here on this space I want you to not only feel welcomed but actually leave with an answer to your questions or just a little more kitchen savvy than you were before.
I honestly want to help each and every one of you on your cooking journey. I want you to feel my support at every step that you make. To make you feel empowered and creative in your kitchen. Make everyday cooking something you enjoy and take pride in.
Looking at your answers made me think about new ways to connect with you all. New paths to walk down together. And then I realized that cooking has everything to do with the senses.
Feeling the produce to pick the best. Seasoning to taste. Smelling the aromas that fill the kitchen. Hearing the crackling of freshly baked bread. And last but not least we see how it is prepared.
All these reminded me that what helped me more to become a good home cook was looking at other people cook. It helped me visualize the instructions of recipes. Which made everything less scary for me.
That is why I decided to start my own YouTube channel. I want you to see how I cook. That cooking doesn’t have to be difficult or complicated. It is possible to cook delicious food your family and guests will love without slaving away hours in the kitchen. Either cooking or cleaning up for that matter. Because cleaning up can make me want to cry!
I would like you to join me in this new endeavour of mine. I hope it will inspire you and make you feel like I am there with you to support you whenever you feel confused. To become a friend to cook with.
Head on over, have a look around and make yourself comfortable. Don’t forget to ask me questions or tell me what your thoughts are. Because friends are there to listen to what you have to say.
Today I would like to share a recipe for baked cod. As a mother of young kids, I am always looking for recipes that my kids will actually eat. This has been a hit for some time now. Although I do serve the parsley on the side. It also travels and reheats well. I have lost count on how many times I’ve cooked this baked cod at night and both my husband and my son had it for lunch the next day.
We usually pair it with rice but a potato salad is also an excellent choice. Sliced cucumbers perfectly round up this meal.
- 800 gr Cod fillets, defrosted if frozen.
- 4 Tbsn crushed tomatoes
- 1 clove garlic omit to make it LowFODMAPS
- 2 Tbsn chopped parsley

- Place fish fillets in an oven proof dish. Season with salt and pepper. Grate the garlic on top.
