I’m going to be honest with you. Low carb eating isn’t the hardest thing in the world after you accept that bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, cake, doughnuts and sugar are off limits. But then you remember that things that are crumbed just taste so much better and then you want to die a little because […]
I found inspiration for this recipe in a book I bought in December called The Real Meal Revolution. It’s all about the “Banting” (low carb high fat) way of eating and I found it quite inspiring. I’m not going to get into this topic (as I think that there’s enough debate going on around it […]
At the beginning of the school year I’m always filled with lots of inspiration to pack nutritious, exciting lunch boxes for my kids. This usually lasts around a month or two (if I’m lucky) because reality sets in and I just don’t have energy for much when I need to pack their lunchboxes. Well, that’s […]
Look, I’ve never said no to a good cocktail and when I first had a version of this one at KOI (my favourite Asian restaurant), I was hooked. The way the floral acidity of the passion fruit (or granadilla as we call them in South Africa) and the ginger complement each other is just magic […]
This is without-a-doubt my absolute favourite lunch at the moment. It takes mere moments to throw together and delivers a punch of flavour like you can’t believe. The reason it’s so quick to put together is because I use things that I have lying in my fridge to make this salad. Leftover chicken, a […]
The most wonderful leftovers to have after Christmas is gammon or ham. There’s just so much you can do with it (have a look at my gammon recipes from last year). I had to make gammon for a Christmas shoot recently and had quite a bit leftover and wanted to do something simple but delicious […]
Christmas morning was always a mixture of being tired and being excited. Tired because we always had a big Christmas Eve party where we would exchange gifts with the family (a few gifts were kept for Christmas Day) and were allowed to stay up late. The excitement I felt was, of course due to […]
We have many traditions during December, but one that I’m very fond of is the making of Rocky Road. I make a big batch every year and keep it in the fridge for family and friends to nibble on when they come visit. It also happens to be one of the kids favourite Festive treats […]

There are few holidays that make people go as food crazy as Christmas. Just have a look at Pinterest to see that people are going Christmas crazy. I, for one, am delighted. I am most definitely a Christmas person. I got it from my mom, who I always referred to as the Queen of […]
