When I was in Cape Town for the launch and some publicity for my new cookbook, I visited a friend that I have been dying to see for a really long time. This friendship was started on Twitter (which is happening more and more often) and as I drove to her house, I couldn’t wait […]
As a proper Afrikaans girl, I find complete comfort in the smell and flavour of cinnamon. I’m not sure why it is but most of our (Afrikaans) comfort foods has cinnamon as an ingredient. Pancakes (crepes) is just not the same if it doesn’t have a generous sprinkling of cinnamon-sugar in the centre. The same […]
Tiramisu is one of my absolute favourite desserts. I love the creamy mascarpone and I love the mellow coffee flavour but what I love most is that it was one of my moms favourite desserts, and one she made incredibly well! My dad always jokes that my mom put so much alcohol in her tiramisu, […]
This is one of those show-stopper cakes that will impress your guests to no end. It does take a little work but it’s all very worth it. I first saw a crepe cake on Martha Stewart’s site and have wanted to try it ever since but knew I needed a special occasion for it […]
Last week I attended a blogger cook-off hosted by Canderel to promote their new product, Canderel Yellow. I have to be honest, I’ve never been a fan of artificial sweeteners as they always have a nasty aftertaste that I just can’t get over, so I very rarely use them. But I was pleasantly surprised to […]

When I was a little girl, I used to go with my gran to the University of Pretoria where both her and my mother worked (my mother was a lecturer in Criminology) and we would drink tea in the big conference rooms. Whenever I smell Rooibos tea I think of my gran. She used to […]
I’ve been craving good Chocolate cake for months now. Not the kind you buy at the Home Industry that’s already kind of dry but you eat it anyway. No, I wanted moist, rich, insanely chocolatey Chocolate Cake. And then a week ago I had this intense craving for Peanut-butter and I thought, why not put […]
One of the fondest memories I have of my mom is that she always made such a fuss about anything related to High Tea. For my 6th or 7th birthday, she threw me a “Little Ladies Tea Party”. All the guests were told by fancy invitation to wear their mother’s hats, pearls and high heels. […]
I am the type of person who believes that fattening foods shouldn’t be tampered with. I don’t like the idea of low-fat Macaroni & Cheese or Diet burgers and chips. I think there is a reason that these things are so fattening, you are only meant to be eating them once every 2-3 months. Making […]
This is one of those recipes that came about by pure accident. I was meant to make truffles yesterday and everything was going great until I added too much orange juice to the truffle mixture. This morning when I wanted to make the truffles, the mixture was just ever-so-slightly too soft to roll into balls. […]
