This is one of those recipes that kind of just happened. I had kids nagging me for pasta and had some smoked chicken close to it’s expiry date and so decided to just throw everything together. The end result was a flavourful, satisfying pasta which is perfect for a quick, weeknight meal. I think some […]
Today, most South Africans go back to work and after a much-needed break, so am I. And I won’t lie, I really don’t want to. Of course I am so excited for 2013 especially as I have some incredibly exciting things in the pipeline, making 2013 (hopefully) the year that I want it to be. […]

Everyone needs a simple but stunning pasta recipe to pull out when inspiration has packed its bags and have bid you adieu. One of my favourites is the Roasted cherry tomato, ricotta & basil pesto pasta which I’ve cooked more times than I can remember. After a while though, these pastas become more of a […]
As I look out our office window, I am treated with the most beautiful bright pink Bougainvillea against a bright blue sky. The sight always puts a smile on my face because I know that Spring is well and truly here. Along with all the other things I adore about Spring, I love the fact […]
When I told my kids that we would be having Ratatouille pasta for dinner last week, they were ecstatic. Not because they like the dish (they had in fact never tasted it before) but because of the movie. They are just obsessed with the little rat, Remy, who is bitten by the cooking bug and […]
Spaghetti Carbonara is one of my absolute favourite, fall-back meals. By that I mean a meal that I can whip up in minutes with ingredients I have in my fridge/freezer with guaranteed success. It’s a really simple pasta but delivers big on flavour and ‘mmmm’-factor. Because this pasta is so simple however, it is necessary […]
As promised, here is the first of my “bumper” posts with some of my favourite recipes. I didn’t even have to think twice about sharing all my favourite pasta recipes with you because it’s something I eat weakly and is definitely in my top 5 favourite foods list. These are all my absolute favourite pasta […]
I am not often left with lots of left-overs after a Sunday roast but it does happen occasionally. The usual manner of dealing with left-over roast is to sandwich it between fresh white bread, a generous dollop of mustard and perhaps a slice of cheese or two. But when I can hide it from the men […]
When I first started cooking meatless meals I thought constantly whether I would be able to do it once a week, I never though there was more than maybe 5 proper meal options. But it turned out that the more I cooked vegetarian food, the more ideas came to me. Most often, the ideas that […]
I’m sure when you see I’ve posted yet ANOTHER pasta recipe you sigh and think, ” Really? Again?” But I just can’t help it. I think in this household, we’ve eaten pasta once a week for as long as I can remember. When we were little, my dad would call spaghetti “wurmpies” (little worms) and […]
