Chicken Chorizo (2017 update)...

Chicken Chorizo I had some left over penne from the night before and found a chorizo and some other goodies which I needed to use. I really love digging out what I have not used every few days and seeing what I can come up with, it doesn’t always work out as I expect but this one was a real winner. If you don’t have chorizo, use bacon or salami. This fed 3 very hungry people with a bit left over so 4 or 5...

No bake white chocolate cheesecake...

This is such an incredibly easy recipe it is almost hard to believe it tastes so fantastic. I am not a big fan of sweet cheesecake recipes and this one really is an excellent recipe. Next time I make this recipe I think I will add some finely grated citrus rind. I can taste a little lemon or orange zest in it but it is fantastic as it is as well. Because it is not overly sweet, top it with almost anything to sweeten...

Chocolate profiteroles...

Matt could not stay away! I just had to repost this today, they are really easy and are brilliant as a dessert to impress visitors during the Xmas season. They do take a bit of time but is so worth it. These have got to be the ultimate weakness of almost anyone. Choux pastry is not difficult to make, it just seems like it’s not working while you are mixing and then suddenly comes together. It’s important to...

Best Banana bread recipe...

Since my trip to Australia 2 years ago where banana bread is part of Ausie culture and can be bought anywhere! I have tried many banana bread recipes and am happy to say that this recipe is the easiest and tastiest of the lot. I have been making it regularly, cutting thick slices and smearing thick layers of butter onto warm pieces 🙂 If it’s not directly from the oven, I pop it in the toaster to warm it up. This...

Christmas fruit cake...

Christmas fruit cake Christmas cakes that contain alcohol should be made about a month ahead of time to allow the flavor to mature. Incredibly, fruit cakes containing alcohol can be stored for around 9 months if in an airtight container. What you need 500g raisins 500g currants 500g mixed candied citrus peel 375g flour Pinch of salt ½ teaspoon nutmeg ½ teaspoon allspice 375g soft butter 375g treacle sugar 6 eggs 50ml...

Chicken and stout casserole...

This recipe is a perfect recipe if you are a fan of one pot cooking. It is really delicious, has a fantastic gravy and never fails to please. You can substitute the stout for regular beer or chicken stock but believe me, the stout gives it a really great flavour. For my foreign readers, a stout beer is very similar to Guinness. Serve it with some creamed spinach or any greens. Green beans in a bit of garlic with bacon...

Cherry pie recipe (tinned cherries)...

As a child I remember having the most delicious Sarah Lee cherry pies (not sure if you can still get them in SA) as a treat and as I have moved recently was keen to try out the new oven and decided to give a cherry pie recipe a try for some friends. Everyone really enjoyed it and I can seriously recommend you try it. The recipe calls for ready made pastry so no messy stuff involved. It’s a pretty simple recipe and...

Weekend Vegetable Lasagna...

Slow baked vegetable lasagna This is a real tasty vegetarian dish or another one of those recipes when you feel you need some vegetables in your diet and is made on top of the stove. (for 4) It takes 4-5 hours to cook so is great for a weekend lunch. Adapted from Italian home recipes What you need 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese 1/2 cup part-skim ricotta or cottage cheese 1/3 cup grated Parmesan Cheese 1 egg, lightly beaten 1...

Butterfly lamb...

This is a great lamb recipe that can be done on the braai or in the oven and is a really nice change from the usual garlic and herb flavored lamb. Do it for your next braai, you won’t regret it and serve it with the potato bake. This is enough for 4-6 people. If you do it on the braai you will want to squeeze a lemon or two over the lamb while cooking  but it is really important lo let it rest after removing from...

Month end meals...

At this time of the month many are a little tight and I have had a lot of requests for tasty economical meals, so here are a few great ideas for meals that taste great and cost very little. In my view rice is a very under rated product that can be easily fancied up and for a tasty, healthy meal. I found a really inexpensive brown rice at PicknPay the other day which you will love. It’s called Spekko brown rice....
