Zucchini Labneh Naan Pizza

It is Meat Free Monday and I have another recipe idea in one of my favourite styles of cooking (after ice cream and baking of course), “easy breezy dude food”. This Zucchini Labneh Naan Pizza is quick, easy and delicious…

Caprese Sandwich

This Caprese Sandwich is another interpretation of “braaibroodjies” that I seem so keen to keep doing. There are a few recipes now on the blog playing with breads suited for a barbecue (you can see them at the end of…

Cheese and Onion Tray Bread

The recipe for this Cheese and Onion Tray Bread comes from this year’s Donna Hay Fast Issue. It looked so good and the fact that it did not take a massive effort to make immediately appealed to me so I…

Duck Fat Egg Toastie

It’s Father’s Day next weekend so this delicious Duck Fat Egg Toastie is a breakfast idea just in time for the day. Granted, for this spin on “egg in a hole” the use of duck fat is rather extravagant but…

Cheesy Bacon and Chorizo Pull Apart Loaf

I am the first to admit that this Cheesy Bacon and Chorizo Pull Apart Loaf is one big gluten, fat and carb festival but it is so delicious. And you are not going to eat it every day so a…

Za'atar Rolls

It feels like autumn has arrived. The days are still warm but it feels like there is a slight chill in the air and the mornings are definitely just that bit darker for longer. This means we are heading to…

Mumbai Cheese Toastie

If truth be told, this Mumbai Cheese Toastie should be called the “I Am Not Giving You Any Of My Toastie” Toastie. It is that good. The recipe for the cheese toastie comes from Diana Henry’s new book titled Simple…

Butterkuchen, Grilled Nectarine, Labneh and Dukkah

This is hardly a recipe but more of a quick summery dessert suggestion of Butterkuchen, Grilled Nectarine, Labneh and Dukkah. The dessert shines in its simplicity and use of summer’s bounty of stone fruit. I just love how it is a…

Flatbreads with Grilled Zucchini dressed in Lemon and Hemp Seed Oil

I think these Flatbreads with Grilled Zucchini dressed in Lemon and Hemp Seed Oil is a whole lot of summer on a plate. It is fuss free entertaining for long lazy lunches and easy evening dining while the summer sun slowly…

Pissaladière

Pissaladière is a classic French dish that originated in Nice in the South of France. It is a tart similar to a pizza but the crust is thicker. It is traditionally topped with caramelised onions, olives and anchovies and I…

Spelt Flatbreads with Spiced Roasted Chickpeas and Cauliflower

This recipe for Spelt Flatbreads with Spiced Roasted Chickpeas and Cauliflower is my contribution to the Faithful to Nature #faithfulfood Organic Recipe Challenge. The brief was to create a seasonal, vegetarian and organic family meal using only fresh organic produce and…

Bacon Peanut Butter Banana Bread

This recipe for Bacon Peanut Butter Banana Bread came into existence after I received a brief to produce 4 short recipe videos for the Sunday Times Food Weekly Facebook Page. The one recipe had to be an interesting flavour combination…

Ukrainian Garlic Bread

My current favourite recipe book is Mamushka by Olia Hercules. A friend told me a while back how interesting and delicious Ukrainian cuisine was and when I read about the book on Twitter towards the end of last year, I immediately…

Pea Hummus l heinstirred.com

Summer eating has to be easy, colourful and with as little fuss as possible. And as much as the eating must be so must the cooking. And I think this Pea Hummus fits the bill perfectly. The colour is gorgeous…

Just over a week ago the lovely people at Cobb dropped off their “Kitchen in a Box”  Premier Cooking System. A nifty outdoor cooker that can roast, fry, grill and bake. It even has a roasting rack to roast a chicken…

Coconut in all its guises is very trendy in the healthy food realm. Coconut oil especially seems to be everywhere and I have succumbed to the trend and have a tub of oil that I cook with instead of vegetable…

  This is without a doubt my dish of the summer and I will be serving it over and over again. The charred smokiness of the courgette and toasted bread blends wonderfully with the garlicky creaminess of the ricotta tzatziki…

Growing up there were 3 things I looked forward to when there was a braai (barbecue): garlic bread, potato salad and my mom’s “heerlike poeding” (literally translated as delicious pudding) which has to be as South African as a braai…

It is so easy to find a recipe online these days but there remains a certain joy to paging through a recipe book and there are always a few  books I reach for (hand written notes of recipes flying out…
