Epic Five Ingredient Pizza With All Gold Tomato Sauce

Whenever we eat at a casual eatery, Ernie will always ask for All Gold – aka tomato sauce. And beware the waiter who brings anything other than actual All Gold Tomato Sauce. Or even worse: if the bottle arrives & it has been refilled with some other nasty red sauce. Needless to say: All Gold […]

My Easy Chicken Stroganoff

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 […]

When last did you eat together?

Growing up, we always had meals at the table. Breakfast was a sit down affair (mostly all five of us) & dinner was a non-negotiable: home cooked meal, all together, no TV, just eating & talking. Even to this day, we have many happy conversations & make happy memories around my parents’ kitchen table. And […]

Thai Green Coconut Chicken Curry {Recipe}

I absolutely love a good green curry. Some of my fondest memories of green curry is when I was pregnant with Oli & my hot Sunday morning craving for curry could only be stilled by the Green Beef Curry at the Good Luck Club in Illovo. Last year some time, I came across this recipe (by […]

MINI BOBOTIES BAKED IN SQUASHES

My favourite bobotie recipe is a super delicious & decadent one – packed with yummy ingredients (sugar, bread, chutney, jam & more) though, that it tastes a bit more like a dessert than anything else! So, when I recently found some very cute mini squashes (or pumpkins if you like) at Woolies, I decided to […]

THREE CHEESE PAPTERT {RECIPE}

My sister makes the best paptert (a starch side dish made of mieliepap & other ingredients) out there. So, when Easter weekend was upon us & we hosted a braai, I decided that it was time for a paptert! I didn’t want to attempt to duplicate her recipe because I knew I would fail dismally. I […]
