Firstly; HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I have positive energy for 2018 and we all need to believe it’s going to be a good one, 2016/7 was complete shite.
This past weekend we decided to move away from chilling at home and braaing with friends (which is always fun) and opted to get out a bit and revisit places we used in to the past. Read more
Hellooooo again, do you guys feel like the year rushed by only for it to have completely slowed down now? Ke Dezemba I am ready boss!
So with the festive approaching, I found a very easy chocolate tart you can whip up last minute for picnics, baby showers, hen parties especially when you don’t feel like slaving away in the kitchen. Read more
Hey!!! Last week I was ill and housebound, the first day was a nightmare, thought I was dying a slow, agonizing death. The following day was a lot more bearable and I could taste things again.
For lunch I decided to make pasta; Claud is carb conscious so we hardly have pasta for supper. Inspired by Gordon Ramsay I threw together this easy mushroom and leek pasta. I added bacon… of course. The below quantities made enough for about 3 – 4 servings. Read more
Friday past I was telling friends we need to visit Frankie Fenner Meat Merchants (FFMM) to check out different cuts of meat that are rare to find at the local shops and even more so in the Northern Suburbs. As luck would have it we found ourselves parked right opposite the exact butchery the following day in Woodstock and obviously had to pop inside. Read more
Today’s post is quite different from what I would normally do, however; I feel like branching out into some lifestyle posts of things that interest me which hopefully you will find appealing too.
I have really fine, thin strands of hair and was becoming concerned and self-conscious about the amount of hair on my head which in my mind was like 13 strands and decreasing each day. I would find an unusual amount of hair on my office chair, on my pillow, my partner’s clothes – scary stuff. Read more
The past two Sundays’ I found myself making curries, the first Sunday butter chikeeen and the next a lekke lamb curry.
I love me some roti’s hey, the feeling of eating with my hands and smothering the pastry in the curry sauce is just so good. Also after seeing one of my high school friends post her homemade rotis on Insta, I had to try. Read more
I think my luck has changed back into the green! I won tickets to the Good Food and Wine Show (GFWS) thanks to @CapeArgus and Lance Witten for the heads-up on his Twitter account. Read more
After getting my Facebook Page sorted and Instagram account linked to this website, I am feeling confident about posting more recipes.
Jamie Oliver posted a pancake video on Instagram which only requires 3 ingredients and I was longing to give it a try. This was my First pancake attempt ever! I jazzed it up with a layer of Nutella, strawberries drizzled with honey, a lick of icing sugar and a dash of cream… It was F A B U L O U S! Read more
Finally made the time to POST!!! I’m feeling quite chuffed about it
This recipe is basically Nigella’s, however, I adapted it slightly. I love her cooking style; its simple and has you drooling just watching her. Read more
A chocolate at ours lasts five minutes and if I’m not quick enough I’ll get none. Sunday past I decided to make a big batch of chocolate brownies with the hopes of it lasting the week to fulfil our chocolate cravings instead of buying them all the time. I couldn’t have been more WRONG! It’s Tuesday today and I managed to bring the last piece with me to work. Luckily I could share some with friends who came to visit over these 3 days. Read more
