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 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!
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…
Wow! Thank you!
That is all I can say.
So the hubby is in the mood for hamburgers and I fancied a good old pasta bake for a change of tastebuds. So I combined the two and came up with this Hamburger Pasta bake.
My hubby really loves braaibroodjies, but with the lack of a broodjierooster I had the genius idea of making jaffles using braaibroodjie ingredients!
I don’t know about you, but I have #GBBO fever at the moment. It really had me long for some well-deserved brownie baking me-time.
