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…

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…

Muesli Buttermilk Rusks

There was no way I was not going to bake Tannie Maria’s Muesli Buttermilk Rusks. After all, they are one of the main characters in the wonderful murder mystery by Sally Andrew called Recipes for Love and Murder. The story is…

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…

Nut Butter Granola with Cacao Nibs

I have lost count of how many batches of this Nut Butter Granola with Cacao Nibs I have made. Granola is essentially a breakfast food but this recipe is next level. The granola is crunchy, bitter, sweet, sour, rich and chocolatey…

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…

Dutch Baby

A Dutch Baby is not Dutch and neither is it a baby. Derived from the German Pfannkuchen, it is a large puffy pancake fit for a celebratory breakfast with minimal fuss or to make an ordinary midweek meal all the…

Apple and Olive Oil Breakfast Muffins

There are hardly any muffin recipes on the site which is a shame as they are so quick and easy to make. I would not go as far to call them healthy as they can be loaded with sugar but…

Coconut and FlaxSeed Porridge

Coconut and Flaxseed Porridge with Spiced Almond and Date Butter is quite a mouthful but then luckily it is a tasty and pretty healthy mouthful. I recently received some products from Crede Natural Oils and in the parcel were packets of…

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…

Fried Eggs in Garlicky Yogurt

Fried eggs in Garlicky Yoghurt with Feta Cheese is now the only way I want to eat eggs. It is so simple yet delicious and I do urge you try it even if it does sound like a strange combination…

Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

I have mentioned before that quinoa is not one of my most favourite ingredients but when I saw the recipe on What Should I Eat For Breakfast Today for this Quinoa Breakfast Bowl I was so intrigued that I had to…

Sausage Breakfast Cake

This Sausage Breakfast Cake is a based on a Strata which I always thought was an Italian dish but turns out to be an American brunch casserole dish. It usually contains, bread, eggs and milk, so it is somewhere between…

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…

Strawberry Polenta Cakes

This recipe for Strawberry Polenta Cakes is a delicious sweet twist on the usual polenta recipes out there. Drizzled with maple syrup and custard they make for a delicious dessert. Cut the custard and you have a tasty breakfast treat…

Tomato and Basil Savoury Crepe Cake

This beautiful Tomato and Basil Savoury Crepe Cake came into being after the lovely people at ZZ2 delivered their Mouthwatering Box a short while back. The box was filled to the brim with all kinds of tomatoes including  LSL tomatoes…

Aubergine Cheesecake

This Aubergine Cheesecake has to count as one of my finds of the year. I originally made a version of this dish for the Cheese issue of the Sunday Times Food Weekly in April of this year.  The issue coincided…

Gluten Free Vegetable Pies

These should in all honesty be called “Clean Out the Fridge Pies” but Vegetable Pies sound so much better. And if truth be told they really are just collapsed veggie souffles but so tasty that making them, waiting for them…

Homemade Ricotta l heinstirred.com

This post was supposed to be about Lebanon’s most famous salad Tabbouleh. But you needs a lot of flat leaf parsley for it and I have this pet hate for buying herbs from retailers when I know full well I…

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…

I have to admit this post only exists because the first image I saw on the day was of buckwheat pancakes on Instagram. That led to me wanting to just have fun with the camera and shoot my own version…

Another name for these Spicy Baked Eggs could easily be Hangover Breakfast. They combine all the elements that I want in a breakfast when the night before might have been too much fun: gluten, fat and spice! And if a…

One of my favourite food blogs is Hortus Cuisine. I love the design of the blog and Valentina’s photography is incredible. There is an ethereal quality to her work which has me mesmerized whenever I look at it. A few…

After the Lemon Meringue post I have to do (some) repentance and I can’t think of anything healthier to get the New Year started than this smoothie. This makes for an easy on the go breakfast or light lunch to keep the…

Keep these in your arsenal for Xmas time to impress any annoying in-laws. Mix the dry ingredients the night before, combine with the fruit mince and other wet ingredients first thing Xmas morning and let the smell of fruit and…

These pancakes are the perfect alternative to wraps and pita breads. They are light and buttery but strong enough to hold quite a bit of filling. The filling options are really endless – whatever you would have in a pita…

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…

Bill Granger is one of my favourite “celebrity chefs” and I was very lucky to see him in action at the Good Food and Wine Show in Cape Town this weekend. He has a wonderful stage presence and was a…
