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!
When I was little my mum always made a massive spread for my birthday each year. One of my favourites was Peppermint Crisp tart.
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.
My sister-in-law’s sweet potato bake hits just the right spot!
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.
Oh no! I cannot believe it is nearly February. Nearly a twelfth into the New Year and I’m still in the Christmas spirit!
The shops are getting ready for the Easter Fever, but I still feel a bit of the Christmas nostalgia lingering in the air.
Sometimes I miss being little. On Saturday evenings we would often sit outside as my dad makes a potjie. There are as many recipes out there as there are potjies, but of course, my dad’s Drunken Chicken Potjie is the best!
As Winter is upon us and the first snow is falling I would like to share with you this beautifully warming dish.
