The Cook the Cat & His Lovers

Mother Cook

“My mother gave me a real kick toward cooking, which was that if I wanted to eat, I’d better know how to do it myself.” – Daniel Craig

The last thing my Mother taught me before she died 12 years ago was how to make coffee pudding. It became my speciality. The recipe is a well kept secret, so, don’t ask.
I’m cooking for my Dad on the weekends. We eat a lot of pasta and rice in combination with fish or vegetarian stuff. Yesterday I made an authentic Mexican rice dish. But I think it scared him off.


Maybe it was just to hot and spicy…

  1. Well it looks yummy…..he’s all bundled up in coat/gloves so I should think if it was hot and spicy it at least thawed him out well! Coffee pudding sounds quite intriguing but I won’t ask……that’s a lovely shot of your Mom. My Mom passed away January 5, 2001….perhaps they are making coffee pudding together??

    Hugs, Pam

  2. Bless his heart, he tried it anyway even tho it was hot. How old is he? I hope you both liked it in the end. Bowie probably didn’t want to try it tho…….

    • Oh yes, we both liked it. My Dad turns 88 in March.
      Bowie doesn’t like this Mexican rice dish. But Jones, our 18 year old kitty (she passed away July 2012) loved this rice recipe!

  3. What a cute picture of your mom. Why don’t people wear aprons everyday? Are stoves usually this size in Belgium? Bravo to your dear dad to try something new, I’m the worst for pickiness but I love when someone else cooks, it’s a night off. PS. I’d love to watch Daniel Craig in the kitchen 😉

  4. Perhaps your father would have preferred the coffee pudding. Do you still have those small enamel saucepans? Small saucepans are just the greatest and not that easy to find.

  5. Good Morning Herman,

    Please don’t let Bowie see this post. I just had my first ‘unfollow’ moment… A blog I was following posted about their cat’s death. A beautiful, black cat like Bagheera. They wrote, ‘I am glad to see the old girl go, but I am sorry for my husband who is sad..’

    This may sound stupid..but I was shocked. How could I have followed such a person? Dylan and Bagheera are like my children.

    Just had to sound-off to a fellow blogger/ cat parent…

    • Dear Stina, don’t worry too much about it. We don’t live in a perfect world. Things like this will happen sometimes. Just cherish your friends, family and Dylan and Bagheera of course! Bowie says “Meow!”

    • Oh Susan, I kinda fooled you, it’s an optical illusion. The stove wasn’t that tiny…
      But we were lucky that our Mother was a very good cook!
