At your next barbecue, skip the usual corn on the cob and make this flavourful, colourful and super easy salad recipe given to me by a friend who insisted I try it (and put it on the blog). The salad is also fantastic as a meal on its own – cook the corn any way you prefer, mix in a protein like some tuna or grilled chicken breast and you have the perfect mid-week summer meal. Leave out the meat…

No braai is complete without a bowl of potato salad and everyone has their favourite way of making this dish. For me it has to be a thick garlic and grated onion mayonnaise dressing with some chopped boiled egg or the warm German version with a tangy vinegar dressing dotted with crispy bacon and chopped parsley.

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 or wrap would work. I love serving them with my Slow Roasted Pork and these insanely easy and quick Cucumber Pickles. The combination is perfect for when you are serving many people and want a casual affair. Everyone helps themselves to make their…

My new favourite thing is chipotle chilies and I can’t believe it has taken so long to finally taste them.

I can’t think of any other word than “intoxicating” when you open the bottle and get a hit of the deep smokiness and could not wait to start cooking with them. These wraps can be…

I am firmly in the camp that believes the only interesting thing about quinoa is the spelling. But once in a while against my better judgement I end up buying a pack and then have to look at it every time I open the cupboard. On the last look I decided to try and make something interesting as camouflaging it in a salad does not work. I devised these fritters and they are really tasty. I decided to go the…
