Traditional South African Vetkoek

Friday nights are Vetkoek nights. Delectable little rounds of bread dough deep fried until golden on the outside and fluffy and soft on the inside… Perfect for a rainy Friday evening where you just want to have comfort food and a shiny face!

Homemade Yogurt

Homemade yogurt

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!

Lettuce Soup with Bacon

Winter is nearing and that can only mean one thing… Soup!

Beetroot and Goat’s Cheese Quiche

Beetroot and Goat's Cheese Quiche

So I have a few things in the fridge that is nearing their expiration date. And, as the quote above suggests, I really hate waste. I had to come up with a way to use up the ingredients before they really do expire and so the Beetroot and Goat’s Cheese Quiche is born.

Quail Scotch Eggs

Quail's Scotch Egg

I cannot stand an over-boiled egg! The moment you bite into a blue-boiled egg the struggle begins…

The best steak sandwich ever!

Steak sandwich

Who doesn’t love a good steak?  Put the steak in-between two pieces of (homemade) bread, add some bits and bops and you have yourself the best steak sandwich ever!

Sweetcorn Fritters

Sweetcorn Fritters

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! 

Perfectly poached egg with salami and tomato on toast

Egg toast with capers

I think I’ve finally cracked it! For years I struggled to cook the perfect poached egg.  Until today.

Christmas Nostalgia (part 1)

The shops are getting ready for the Easter Fever, but I still feel a bit of the Christmas nostalgia lingering in the air.

Sunday night blues

I love writing in Afrikaans.  It is an incredibly expressive language and you can describe feelings and emotions not only with flair, but also with wit, and in such a way that you can make anything less insulting by putting a ‘tjie’ at the end of the word…
