The first time I came across Cauliflower Couscous was on www. drizzleanddip.com and it has been a staple ever since for “low carb” dinners. I am sure the Banting Diet crowd will just love this and it is fantastic as…

It’s the glorious days of late sunsets, unfussy outside dining and chilled crisp wines. This salad is a bowl brimming with summer textures, flavours and colours. The fruit is not overly sweet and combines wonderfully with the crunchy earthiness of…

  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…

There was no way I was going to decline an invitation from Nina Timm from My Easy Cooking to spend the morning in her kitchen! I am a huge fan of Nina’s work on her blog  My Easy Cooking and her fuss free way of…

The best soup I ever had was at Via’s in Greyton. It was unpretentious, delicious, made from broccoli picked that very morning and served in a small cup as an appetiser. When the chef came out during the meal we…

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…

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…

These are my go to pickles when there are no “proper” pickles in the fridge. A few minutes to make and ready to eat in two hours. The longer the cucumber stays in the liquid the more crunch it will…

My new favourite thing is chipotle chilies and I can’t believe it has taken so long to finally taste them. I heard El Burro in Green Point was producing bottles of the chilies and ordered a few when I saw…

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…

This soup is so good. Much better than I thought it would be and so versatile as it tastes equally good hot or cold. And of course the colour. It is so easy to go completely Nigella about the colour…

Of all my (many) favourite things to eat, delicate and beautiful zucchini flowers are very high on the list. Eating them takes me back to Rome immediately and somehow soothes my seemingly daily longing for Italy. We still have quite…

I was once told that South Africans have quite an obsession with butternut and with the last few days having been cold and wet I just smiled when I decided to make a butternut soup. I wanted to keep the…
