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!
