pure Ruby on Rails or a template engine


As my first project I will try to make a site of my (http://www.tamarawobben.nl) to a RoR site.

Now my question is : Can I make this happens by using pure Ruby on Rails or can I better use a template engine?

If the answer is a template engine. which will work the best for this sort of sites ?

If it can, I will try to avoid things like fceditor for only placing the images.
