Simply Delicious A general food and cooking blog. I like to experiment and try all different types of cuisine and I have a passion for food photography and styling. Thu, 31 Jul 2014 13:16:52 +0000 en-US hourly 1 How to make a seed loaf Thu, 31 Jul 2014 07:56:25 +0000 There are few greater pleasures in life than having freshly baked bread in the house. I’ve spoken about this before in my Potato & Pecorino bread post but I will continue speaking about it until everyone I know (and that means all of you), has baked their own bread. Even just once. The entire process […]

Crispy bacon & brie grilled cheese sandwich with caramelised onions Wed, 30 Jul 2014 10:31:08 +0000 Halllooooo grilled cheese goodness (imagine me saying that in the same way the Animaniacs used to say ‘Hallloooo nurse!’). Isn’t it weird what stuff stays with you from your childhood? I always used to remember that nurse line and then the other day the twins were watching Animaniacs and I was immediately transported back to […]

Sticky Sesame chicken Tue, 22 Jul 2014 06:49:43 +0000 “Another sticky chicken recipe?”, I hear you ask. Yes my friends, the children have spoken and as all parents know, when your children speak, you must listen.

Roasted sweet corn and feta quiche Mon, 21 Jul 2014 09:15:24 +0000 There’s been a whole lot of roasted corn action in my kitchen lately. As a South African, corn (or “mielies” as we call them) is drilled into my heritage. When you go on holiday, driving past kilometres of corn fields is the norm and seeing vendors selling huge mielies still with their husks attached is […]

Vegetarian Enchilada Casserole Fri, 18 Jul 2014 07:10:59 +0000 This is the thing with being a food blogger. Sometimes you shoot food that not only tastes great but also looks really great. Just as there are people that are super photogenic, so there are recipes that are photogenic. This is not one of those. Don’t get me wrong, it looks like golden-cheesy-deliciousness but it’s […]

Caprese Bruschetta Tue, 15 Jul 2014 08:34:25 +0000 So here’s the thing with Caprese. It works ┬áin any way, shape or form. Whether you use this classic flavour combination to flavour a delicious Mac & Cheese or use it to roast tomatoes, it just works. I guess that’s why it’s a classic, hey? So it’s no surprise then that I gravitate towards Caprese-Anything […]

Blueberry lemon scones Thu, 10 Jul 2014 07:12:53 +0000 As I mentioned last week in my Cheese & Chive scones post, I used the same dough to make a sweet version and boy-oh-boy, were these good! I love when one recipe is so versatile and can be used in many different ways and this scone recipe is a prime example. You can strip away […]
