Pistachio Lemon Cake

This utterly delicious Pistachio Lemon Cake is an updated lemon variation of the Orange Pistachio Cake I posted back in 2014. The reason for the update is twofold. The images for the 2014 recipe are a bit embarrassing and I was given some beautiful pistachios by a friend who imports them to South Africa from Iran. I loved hearing a bit more about pistachios, the king of nuts. The English name pistachio is derived from “Pisteh”, which is a Persian name…

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 – Effortless Food, Big Flavours. The book is without a doubt one of my favourite books. I love the photography (I think the cover is one of the most beautiful recipe book covers) and the recipes are hassle free, yet…

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 more special with a delicious dessert. You make a thin pancake batter, pour it into a blazing hot cast iron pan and place it in a hot oven. The batter puffs up around the edges and rises higher and higher…

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 these Apple and Olive Oil Muffins are quite light on the sugar and have some good for the heart extra virgin olive oil added in the mix. I have added vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg to the batter, all spices that…

Vegan Coconut Caramel Sauce

I have not posted a dessert since December so it has to be rectified immediately. I came across the recipe for this Coconut Caramel Sauce recently on Viktoria’s Table and was immediately tempted to try it. In Viktoria’s recipe the sauce forms part of a pumpkin ice cream with praline pecans. How good does that sound (and look!)? Viktoria grew up in Bulgaria and lives in San Francisco. I love Viktoria’s blog so browse through it regularly. I love her…

Quinoa Veggie Burgers with Avocado Tahini Dip

I do think these Quinoa Veggie Burgers with Avocado Tahini Dip are really delicious, even for those of us who can happily live without quinoa. Packed with veggies and no processed ingredients these make a great meat free monday meal and I am convinced it will keep all the carnivores at your table pretty happy and satisfied. I based this recipe on a recipe I received from my friend Roger Jorgensen after having dinner one evening where he served quinoa…
