Freekeh Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Walnut Streusel

Freekeh has been on my radar for a while now but impossible to get in South Africa. So when I was approached by The Really Interesting Food Company to create a recipe with Greenwheat Freekeh there was no way I was going to refuse. And that is how this Freekeh Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Walnut Streusel came into being. Fr Since I am up against 9 other foodies to create a recipe, I decided that I had to go sweet…

Caramel Popcorn with Coffee Salt

I can’t think of a better New Year’s Eve snack than this Caramel Popcorn with Coffee Salt. The rich golden colour adds that celebratory feel and the taste is just phenomenal. I adapted the recipe from the Spicy Salted Caramel Popcorn recipe I posted earlier this year from Sam Linsell’s book called Sweet. Even though I am not the biggest fan of the salted caramel craze (I find most combinations overdone with saltiness, thereby spoiling the caramel flavour), salt always…

Espresso Martini

A good friend mentioned the other day she can not wait to see what this year’s festive drink is going to be so I am feeling a bit of pressure with this recipe for Espresso Martini. I had already shot the images a while back so there was no going back on my choice for this year.

Boozy Chocolate Coffee Pudding

I have two types of favourite email. The first is a payment notification and the second is a brief for a recipe that includes the words rich, sticky and boozy. And these Boozy Chocolate Coffee Puddings came from receiving such a brief from the Sunday Times for the 14 June 2015 issue of their Food Weekly Supplement. It is winter so I wanted to do a baked pudding and I thought a boozy spin on a self saucing pudding would…

Chocolate Chestnut Brownie

What can be better than chocolate brownies? Chocolate Chestnut Brownies. We South Africans don’t seem to “do” chesnuts and the only time they do cross my path will be on a Xmas cooking show from the northern hemisphere. I’m not even sure if you are able to get them in South Africa to be honest. Naturally I was eager to try out a tin of chestnut puree when Sumarie at My Collections asked me to use it in a recipe. The…

Christmas Milkshake

  I am sure I got the idea for these Christmas Milkshakes on the treadmill. And it is not the first time that has happened. In all honesty it is such a dull experience being on one, combined with watching news which is hardly ever good, that my mind usually wanders to what I am going to do for the blog. I wanted to do a festive holiday drink but am a bit of a creature of habit and my…
