It is always nice to try something new, however, we shouldn’t forget the classics either! Keep an eye on my website for some great (or very disastrous) experiments in the kitchen by following the dropdown menu next to the Recipe tab at the top….
In 2008 I arrived on the English shore in a bid to see the world. Needless to say that my intention to travel the world only lasted a year before I met my husband. Ever since then we aim to go abroad at least…
I have been painting my nails for the longest time, however, I have recently fell in love with stamping. Sometimes I will just sit and mess around with polish for hours… I would love to share some of my creations with you. I know…
Ever since I could remember I dreamt of making my own yogurt and when I saw Instant Pot had a function to make yogurt, I was totally set on buying one of these miracle pots. I therefore was totally over the moon when my hubby surprised me with a Instant Pot!
A couple of nights ago I’ve made a Lamb Shank with Feta and Olives. I wanted to add a bit of luxurious creaminess to the dish so I made this dip as a side to the gorgeous lamb!
There are very few things in the world that soothes the soul. Like sitting by a crackling fire whilst the wind sweeps eerily outside or a steaming bowl of soup that gently warms you from the inside out.
Ever since we’ve moved into our new home, I’ve really wanted to make some more freezer-ready meals for those nights that there is simply not enough time to cook something from scratch.
It has been nearly 12 years since my first visit to Paris, France. I had a bucket list since I can remember and one of the things I wanted to experience was to be at the top of the Eiffel tower by my 25th birthday.
Many years ago I was lucky enough to visit the stunning Switzerland with my uncle, auntie and cousin. One of the places we visited was Heididorf where Johanna Spyri’s book comes to life.
On Saturday evenings after the rugby my dad will put a whole rack of lamb ribs into the oven and we would have that with pap. Nowadays I like to keep things a little more healthy and cook French-trimmed lamb ribs with a bit of potatoes and an awesome pistachio pesto.
I love receiving edible gifts, especially those that are unusual. My friend B gave me a pack of Einkorn Flour a couple of months ago. I’ve been totally intrigued by it and couldn’t wait to try it out.
When I first heard that I will be visiting Lake Garda I had no idea what to expect. Now that I’ve visited, I cannot think of many other places that has the charm of this part of Italy.
Debra Levinson was spot on when she said: “One of the great joys of traveling through Italy is discovering firsthand that it is, indeed, a dream destination.” Italy is the dream destination for the majority of us. Ever since I could remember, Italy had…
Have I mentioned that I am pretty privileged when it comes to seeing the world and visiting new places? As you may or may not know, I am a teacher and as part of my school’s culture we take our students on an annual…
I can still remember the first time I had Moroccan food. I was in South Kensington with my cousin. I cannot remember what I had that night, but I do remember coming home and thinking: ‘wow! that was bloody fantastic!’
If there is one thing in life that I truly love, then it is the art of good food. The Hubby and I spent a day and a half in Vienna on a short little weekend break and consumed way more calories than what was needed to sustain life…
It has been weeks’ worth of planning. All I wanted was the most romantic weekend away in one of the most romanticised cities in the world. It is therefore only logical that it is pouring outside. How truly disappointing!
I’ve always been a romantic at heart. Besides Paris, I’ve always imagined 18th Century Vienna as one of the most romantic cities on earth. To say that our visit was a slight disappointment is somewhat of an understatement…
I absolutely love serving salads as part of our dinner in the evening, however, I do like to keep things interesting as I would hate for it to become just another side-dish that have to be consumed just because it is healthy.
When all things spoke the potato said, ‘set me warm, dig me warm, eat me warm, that’s all i want.’ I couldn’t agree more with this age-old Irish proverb! Who doesn’t love a great dish that comes from the most humblest of origins: the potato.
I love the fact that there are very few coffee chains in South Africa. People make a living by trying to be more unique that the next person down the road. The result? Gems!
With summer time I’m always on the prowl for something that is light, but tasty at the same time. With an abundance of mint in our garden it is inevitable that I have to incorporate it into my cooking.
Growing up my mother always woke up super early. Even on a Saturday. Some Saturdays we were lucky enough to be spoilt with these little sweetcorn fritters for breakfast. Mieliekoekies!
I used to waste. A lot. Whenever an expiry or best before date was approaching, it went straight to the bin. Here are my 10 top tips to reduce food waste each week.
