After weeks of excess and indulgence in December, I find myself craving simplicity in January. Even though, surprisingly, us as a family behaved ourselves on the food front and didn’t allow ourselves to get carried away, I still have the need to eat the simplest of foods. Toast with a smear of Bovril is great […]
The first time I saw this on Martha Stewart’s site, I just loved the look of it. Simple ingredients, beautiful flavours and using mostly ingredients that everyone has in their kitchens. Except for the artichokes of course. Let me just clarify here that I have not and probably will never prepare and cook an artichoke […]
I know this looks terribly fiddly and like it’s going to be way too much trouble for a week night. And in some ways, it is. Because of that, I decided to eliminate the whole bechamel/cheese sauce part of normal lasagna making and substituted it with a very easy creme fraiche ‘sauce’ which can be […]

As promised, here is the first of my “bumper” posts with some of my favourite recipes. I didn’t even have to think twice about sharing all my favourite pasta recipes with you because it’s something I eat weakly and is definitely in my top 5 favourite foods list. These are all my absolute favourite pasta […]
I am not often left with lots of left-overs after a Sunday roast but it does happen occasionally. The usual manner of dealing with left-over roast is to sandwich it between fresh white bread, a generous dollop of mustard and perhaps a slice of cheese or two. But when I can hide it from the men […]
Throughout Winter, most people turn to a bowl of soup, stew or curry to get warm and toasty but at times I feel like it’s just a bit too heavy and I need something lighter, but no less comforting. Enter pasta with hearty sauces. Chicken Parmigiana is originally made by crumbing the chicken breasts, frying […]
After this last week, I needed something fresh and light. I don’t know about you, but with all the public holidays and Easter in South Africa, I ate non-stop. It also didn’t help that we had a few very icy days where all you want to do is stay indoors, snuggled up on the couch […]
No need to start panicking, this might sound like it’s exotic and complicated but actually, it’s just a glorified version of Mac ‘n cheese. I promise. The only difference is that it’s infused with all the glorious flavours of Greece. Oregano, garlic, lemon and mint are all added to the mince (ground beef) mixture to […]
When I first started cooking meatless meals I thought constantly whether I would be able to do it once a week, I never though there was more than maybe 5 proper meal options. But it turned out that the more I cooked vegetarian food, the more ideas came to me. Most often, the ideas that […]
I’m sure when you see I’ve posted yet ANOTHER pasta recipe you sigh and think, ” Really? Again?” But I just can’t help it. I think in this household, we’ve eaten pasta once a week for as long as I can remember. When we were little, my dad would call spaghetti “wurmpies” (little worms) and […]
