FOOD TREND: BONE BROTH {+ A YUMMY RECIPE}

As far as food trends go you’ll find a brand new, fresh trend (like the Cronut) every now & then. But quite often food trends are basically just old ideas that have been given a dust-off or a new name & presented as a brand new thing. Case in point: bone broth. Earlier this year […]

JAMIE’S FIG TART {RECIPE}

I received the Jamie’s Italy recipe book from my brother in 2006, but (& this is so embarrassing to admit) I haven’t made a single recipe from it! Being a Jamie Oliver AND a recipe fanatic, this is quite unusual for me. Sure, I have spent hours & hours paging & reading the recipes. Admiring […]

MIXED BERRY & NUT DESSERT

Whenever I see berries at the green grocer, I get super excited at the prospect of making wonderful berry-licious dishes – like this. The fun part about this specific recipe is that you can decide how decadent or healthy you want to serve it. IT can basically be serves as a breakfast, dessert or snack. […]

QUICK & SIMPLE CHICKPEA PATTIES

I only discovered chickpeas in my 20’s & boy am I glad I did. My mother is a fantastic cook, but tends to stick mostly to the traditional repertoire (rys, vleis & aartappels, anyone!?) which means we weren’t really exposed to items like couscous or chickpeas. Chickpeas are not only good for you, but they’re […]

A VEGETARIAN BOBOTIE {RECIPE}

Traditional bobotie is one of my top South African dishes! It is really, really tasty but often not the healthiest of recipes. For instance: my favourite traditional Bobotie recipe contains sugar, bread, jam, raisins, chutney & oil. It is served with yellow rice (made with golden syrup (!), turmeric and raisins). Mmm… probably not ideal […]

HOW ABOUT SOME VANILLA & BLUEBERRY PUNCH? {RECIPE}

End-of-year madness & the festive season is right around the corner, which means it’s time to pull out your favourite summer recipes! I love anything with vanilla & this punch is no exception. Recipe by Herman Lensing, food editor of Sarie magazine. This guy might be young, but he is über-talented. Love his work! I’ve included a […]

MY CUPPA 4 CANSA {BLACK & WHITE WITH A POP OF COLOUR}

I love the Cuppa 4 Cansa* campaign. Maybe because it’s an excuse to have a party AND do something worthwhile at the same time? I’m so grateful that my inner-inner circle has not been affected by breast cancer, but I know many women who have & I really believe that this is a cause worth […]

foodie crushes: Russian Doll Kitchen Goodies

How cute are Russian dollies? I can’t put my finger on why I love them so much. Maybe it’s the surprise element? Or just the fact that they’re such fun to unpack? Anyhow, they’re still as cute (or even cuter) today as they were when first carved back in 1890. Whether you like to call them […]

MINI S’MORES {RECIPE}

For a while now, I’ve been thinking of MINI TREATS FOR MINI PEEPS, so this was the first experiment! Technically this  cannot be classified as a recipe. Maybe I should call it a ‘throw-together’. Nevertheless, it is a fun, yummy little treat for tiny (or big) tummies! Note: The end result wasn’t photographed as well […]
