Lamb with Pistachio Pesto

Lamb with potatoes and pesto

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.

A Simple Beetroot Salad with Goat’s Cheese

Beetroot and goat cheese salad

Ever since I can remember my mum would always ensure that, when in season, we have beetroot salad on the table.

Avocado Jelly Salad

A box of Fuerte Avocados

When I grew up, the family would gather on a Sunday for lunch. Everyone will be responsible for bringing one salad and one meat dish so it almost always resulted in someone bringing some form of jelly salad. My most favourite one is the Avocado Jelly Salad.

Pasta Salad with Avocado

Bacon and Avocado Pasta

In South Africa we bought avocados by the case. It is for that reason that I love making this recipe.

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! 

Peppermint crisp fridge tart

When I was little my mum always made a massive spread for my birthday each year.  One of my favourites was Peppermint Crisp tart.

The Ultimate Potato Salad

My Ultimate potato salad

There are a few staples that you will always find at a South African braai: pap, sous, greek salad, garlic bread and potato salad.  This is my ultimate potato salad recipe.

Sweet potato bake

Creamy Sweet Potato bake

My sister-in-law’s sweet potato bake hits just the right spot!

Pancakes! Pancakes!

I love the rain. When it rains in South Africa we eat pancakes. I love pancakes. This year I’ve incorporated traditions from both sides of the equator.

Christmas Nostalgia (part 2)

Oh no! I cannot believe it is nearly February. Nearly a twelfth into the New Year and I’m still in the Christmas spirit!
