Posted on May 23, 2017 by in lamb

Lipsmacking Lamb Ribs

Lipsmacking Lamb ribs made with my all purpose spice mix, definitely a winner every time. Eating these Lipsmacking Lamb Ribs, you need little more than a wedge of lemon and a warm cloth (jammer lappie) to get the dripping fat off your face and hands. Yesterday I posted a recipe for my All Purpose Spice […]

Pork Twisters for an interesting twist on National Braai Day 2016

pork twisters

Pork Twisters all sticky and sweet is my contribution to National Braai Day 2016. We love pork twisters – they are different, not fussy at all to make and they are rather funky and different. Of course I love a good chop and a delicious mature rib-eye. I would even settle for a good burger […]

Grilled Steak

Grilled steak for two is what you eat when the kids are out and you are having a date night! I am a very involved mom, right, hovering over the kiddos, caring for their every need. ( I know, I need therapy!) I like having them around, so I was not at all prepared for […]

Grilled Corn Salad – A must for every barbeque!

Grilled Corn Salad

Grilled Corn, dripping with butter, mmmm! Must be one of my favorite things to enjoy at a braai or barbeque. I love the sweet butter crunch as I bite into it and the smoky flavor is very hard to beat. Grilled corn can be a bit messy to eat so we keep it for family […]

Roosterkoek

Roosterkoek, it is hard to imagine a good old South African braai (BBQ) without it! Roosterkoek forms such a big part of our South African culture, that more and more, I find them  at festivals and markets …….  adorned with syrup, cheese, scrambled egg and bacon! Roosterkoek is literally pieces of bread dough that has […]

dried fruit

Dried fruit chutney on smokey pork ribs is on my menu tonight and I must confess it has been on our menu quite a few times since the braai season started! Dried fruit is so often associated with winter, yet even in the midst of summer, it is hard to imagine Christmas without the joys […]

Fruity Chicken drumsticks – Summer’s here!

fruity chicken

Fruity chicken drumsticks on the grill or braai says to me, it is summer! Gone with the soups and stews and in with salads,  grilling and chilling! Fruity chicken recipes are never-ending, it seems as if chicken just leans itself to be paired with some kind of fruit! For me pineapple is a classic combination […]

Tangy Chicken Kebabs with creamy orange mayonnaise

Posted on May 25, 2012 by in Chicken

Making chicken kebabs in the middle of winter when it is cold and Cape Town is showing you her cold shoulder, seems like such a crazy idea, but enjoyed around a cosy fire with warm pitas and maybe even a light vegetable soup simmering somewhere, it could work….. oh, alright, soppy story doesn’t work for […]

Sticky Pineapple and Chicken Kebabs

Posted on October 20, 2011 by in Chicken

Making these Sticky Pineapple and Chicken Kebabs was a fun way to get my family’s attention and an effort to redeem myself  for having neglected them the last week or so. Excitement is peaking and the game is on as we are preparing for the Huisgenoot Namakwa Festival, where I will be cooking for… a […]
