This will be the last ‘budget meals’ post for a few weeks. Even though I’ve now gotten addicted to checking the prices of everything so I’ll pretty much keep cooking this way. I really think that most people can save quite a substantial amount every month if they just actually start looking at what they’re […]
Whilst thinking of ways to best showcase herbs, I knew I had to do something with Chicken. I love chicken because it’s such a great ‘canvas’ to carry other flavours. And one of my favourite ways of cooking it, is just like this. Loads of lemon juice, mustard and herbs. The chicken just comes alive […]

I have been struggling to come up with a nice snack idea for the World Cup. Everything seems kind of boring and ‘done’, you know? So last night I had deboned chicken thighs in the fridge and I had no idea what to do with them. So I decided to skewer them. But I didn’t […]
I think my love for all things Indian is quite apparent by now so I won’t even go there again. I must have been a Bollywood princess in my previous life because never has there been a 100% Boeremeisie that loves Indian food as much as me. I love it so much that I’m planning […]
Everyone needs them… Recipes that take less than 30 minutes to cook but doesn’t skimp on comfort or flavour. This is one of those. The sauce cooks in the same time it takes to boil the water and cook the pasta. You pop it into the oven for 10-15 minutes, kick off your shoes and […]
As you might remember, I posted about the wonderful thing that is pastry last week. And I promised I would post my recipe for Chicken Pie. My first memories of Chicken Pie involves my gran, Sundays and a table buckling under the weight of the amazing spread she used to prepare for us. My gran’s […]
Coq au Vin, like Boeuf Bourguignon, has been one of those dishes that I’ve been dying to make. Just the name conjures up images of the beautiful French country side, a mother lovingly chopping, sauteing and cooking a big pot of stew for her family. The whole family coming together and dunking crusty pieces of […]
“ANOTHER Chicken & Veg recipe?”, I hear you ask! Well, Yes! I just love the combination of mild chicken with sweet vegetables and along with it comes that wonderful “Chicken soup for the soul” feeling. It really is just that. It also helps that they are packed with nutrients & goodness so it’s a guilt-free […]
I think most of the people that read this blog regularly know that I have a complete and utter love affair with Indian food. With no other cuisine do you get the intense satisfaction that comes with comfort food with some added oomph from all the spices. It helps that I am a complete Chilli […]
This is the ultimate social food. Imagine platters of Spicy Chicken, stacks of Chewy Naan, Bowls of Cucumber & Onion pickle and loads of wine. It’s also a ‘eat with your hands’ kind of meal which is my favourite. Serves 6-8 Tandoori Chicken 2 Medium Chicken breasts per person, Sliced into chunky strips 2 1/2 […]
