Wake up, wake up, wake up …


That’s a Stroopwafel … sweet wafers with caramel inside … sitting on top of hot tea (to soften the caramel). A perfect waker-upper.

Tortuga says to “Wake up!” Spring is fading into summer and the days are not to be wasted. It was mid-May and Tortuga’s cold blood is warming … so we must get moving.


Our Friesen friends note that a home-made stroopwafel is much superior to the imported model above … but it was sooooo very good! Living in the PNW may mean that we’ll have to try cooking our own.




This is our amazing backyard for mid-May. Just follow the road to find yours …

    1. Everything you do reflects a simple yet careful selection of ingredients combined for amazing flavors and a full compliments of nutrients! For a tortuga living in less than 100 sq. ft., that’s of primary importance! Then, you plate everything beautifully to boot … a challenge for anyone who thoroughly loves food. Our great thanks for you and your site!!
