Do you consider yourself a foodie?

I recently met a lovely women’s magazine food editor at a function. The conversation started with the usual chit-chat: introducing ourselves, talking about what we do etc. I mentioned that I am a super keen cook. She replied promptly: “Thank goodness that you don’t call yourself a chef – these days every second person considers […]

Gin & Tonic Ice Lollies

On a super hot summers day, I love to have fruit ice lollies in the freezer for Oliver. We enjoy making these together by freezing half water half juice in a lolly mold. They are such a treat on a scorching day & yet they are still healthy. So that means the kiddie ice lolly box is […]

Four Ingredient Strawberry & Balsamic Ice Cream

Last year around this time, I was really eager to start making my own ice creams. By November I just couldn’t handle all the gorgeous ice creams that I was seeing online, so I just had to get an ice cream maker of my own. I usually consider the purchase of any (small or large) […]

How To Make The Best Cake Pops

Every couple of years, the foodie world is taken by storm by some craze or another. It has been cupcakes, then macaroons & even cronuts. Cake Pops also had a moment & rightfully so because these yummy little surprises are delicious with a capital D. I am secretly hoping that it will become a thing […]

Epic Five Ingredient Pizza With All Gold Tomato Sauce

I tried UCOOK & this is what I think

Food is quite a thing around here & unless I’ve eaten a good home-cooked meal, I feel a bit sad. It doesn’t need to be fancy. Just hearty & healthy. Whenever we are away from home without the option to cook our own food, I even start craving cottage pie & broccoli (aka simple home-made […]

A fantastic mid-week dinner at Rosto, Linden

A couple of weeks ago I received an invite to have dinner at ROSTO. Even though ROSTO opened its doors in September 2016 in Linden (Johannesburg), I hadn’t heard of it before. Maybe because we were living on the other side of the country? But now I am delighted to share my review of this awesome […]
