Welcome to my blog and a big thank you for swinging by my little corner of the World Wide Web.
I’ve always wanted to travel the world and in 2008 I made my first trip abroad. I came to England to spend two years traveling through Europe, you know, to satisfy this hunger I had for travel. I saw many beautiful places and I truly loved every second of it. When an opportunity came knocking I couldn’t help but to grab the bull by the horns and now, years later, I have made England my home.
Now, I am just a regular woman living a near enough ordinary life. By day a Maths Teacher, by night an amateur home cook and wife to my lovely Hubby. And by weekend? A hungry foodie seeking a new adventure! I still suffer from travel-bite fever even after all these years…
I cannot wait to share with you my passions for food, travel and life in general. Here you will find some of my favourite recipes from all over the world and also my take on some of the places I have visited locally and abroad. I love painting my nails with some wacky designs and writing short sketches about life in general.
In short, what you have here is my very ordinary life, slathered with clotted cream to give it a bit of a twist.

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…
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!
The Hubby and I wanted to do something together in the kitchen. We’ve always loved M&S’ Bramley Apple hot cross buns and we’ve searched for quite some time for the right recipe.
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.
