This is one of those recipes that kind of just happened. I had kids nagging me for pasta and had some smoked chicken close to it’s expiry date and so decided to just throw everything together. The end result was a flavourful, satisfying pasta which is perfect for a quick, weeknight meal. I think some […]
Last night after a day filled with admin and e-mails, I was not in the mood to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I wanted something quick and filling but needed comfort as we are experiencing icy weather at the moment. The only problem is that comfort food doesn’t always equate to quick […]
It’s the 1st of August. How is it the 1st of August already? I say it every year and every year I feel like it’s going faster and faster. I sometimes feel overwhelmed at how quickly the years seem to be flying past me. When I was in school I was SO excited when the […]
A few nights ago, I had two dinner options, a vegetarian tart or this Pork tenderloin (or Pork Fillet) with creamy mushrooms. I asked my Twitter friends to help me make the decision and it was literally 50/50. Then I spoke to my husband and he promised to break the heels off my favourite pair […]
Sometimes, all I need is a bowl of comforting pasta. I don’t even care what sauce/flavourings I have on it. I just want perfectly cooked pasta. Even something as simple as garlic-butter would be perfect. But alas, my family expect more of me than just garlic-butter spaghetti. So I have to compromise and give them […]

So as you probably know by now, my family and I are on holiday at the moment as South Africa is celebrating our wonderful Summer (although right now it’s more like Cape Town in Winter… rainy, windy and misty). We are incredibly fortunate to be in one of the most beautiful areas of the country […]
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 […]
Now I know this doesn’t sound budget friendly AT ALL. Bacon is ridiculously expensive and mushrooms aren’t exactly the cheapest vegetable out there. But for 4, this is actually a really reasonable dish. And it helps that it tastes so good. This is the one dish that will debunk all the myths that budget cooking […]
With this intensely icy weather our country is experiencing at present, the only food that should be served are the ones that warm your tummy, soul and heart. And of course, yet again, soup has come to the rescue. As I’m typing this, my fingers are blue, but this soup recipe is one that you […]
I am really not a fan of smoked chicken. Why, I don’t know. I’ve recently learned to love bacon (I used to really hate it…why, I don’t know!) and I have always had an obsession with smoked salmon. So I really can’t tell you why I don’t like it. So I was pretty put-off when […]
