I must confess that I am more of a savoury person. I would rather eat a sandwich after a meal than dessert – when will this become acceptable? But life is just too sad without a little sweet indulgence so here is a cake that is delicately sweetened by honey, livened up by some zesty lime, full of fresh, tangy apples and crowned with a creamy natural yoghurt.Read More
Harvest bowls are the new trendy thing in healthy eating and considering my family’s green-leaning, are right up my alley. The best part is they are so simple. You choose a bunch of your favourite crunchy salad and veg, add a grain, some delicious protein, toss them all into a bowl and top with a juicy dressing. Quick, easy, super tasty and healthy to boot!Read More
This dish tastes of summer. Perfectly toasted, crunchy ciabatta rubbed with fresh garlic cloves, topped with sweet cherry tomatoes, torn basil leaves & a good glug of extra virgin olive oil. Simple, delicate and robust all at the same time!
With the weather heating up and it being Heritage (read: BRAAI) month, us South Africans are all getting that wonderful, delirious, warm-summer-air, late-nights-outside-by-the-fire, weekends-away-at-the-sea kinda feeling.

This the PERFECT summer picnic or lunch-outside-on-the-stoep (veranda) tart. Sweet red onion marmalade and roasted peppers, salty goat's cheese, soft filling, crunchy pastry - all complemented perfectly by a sunny day under the trees with a cold glass of wine and a fresh side salad.Read More
These fresh, light herby fritters are one of my go-to foods for a quick, tasty meal. The thing I absolutely love about this recipe is that it is so versatile. You can have these for breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner or even a midnight snack! Leave out the cheese for a healthier version (but be warned: the cheese makes them SO tasty!) Serve on its own as a lovely, light meal or top with a poached egg, some spicy chicken breasts or ostrich kebabs fresh off the braai!Read More
