Caprese Bombs and a Competition

Posted on September 12, 2017 by in cheese

Caprese Bombs

These Caprese Bombs are just the bomb, pardon the pun. Caprese Bombs made with 5 ingredients, I kid you not. The recipe makes 20 and they flew off the plate before I could take proper pictures. The kids (and dad) absolutely loved them. A traditional Caprese Salad is a salad made with fresh tomatoes, fresh […]

Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Stuffed Baked Potatoes – Oh my weak heart! I love, love, love Stuffed Baked Potatoes! Sometimes the stuffing can be as simple as melted butter, salt and pepper, or sometimes rather decadent. There is just something about a baked potato that I can’t explain.  Even if I make gnocchi, I prefer baking the potatoes and […]

Labneh Pots – Perfect Picnic or Padkos Snack

Labneh Pots

Labneh Pots are so each to make, the kids can dot it. These Labneh Pots can be any flavor you want them to be, but I just love Red Pepper Pesto and Basil Pesto, so those were my flavors of choice. The white, red and green colors also look beautiful in the glass jars. In […]

Delicious Chicken Salad

This Delicious Chicken Salad has been my staple this summer. Maybe it is old age, but I have never been more bothered by this intense heat. My delicious chicken salad must be packed with flavor though. No boring chunks of fry chicken with heaps of mayonnaise. No, I want flavor and crunch and comfort all […]

Goats cheese Fritters

Goats Cheese Fritters are just the most addictive things you can imagine. Goats Cheese Fritters are delicious in a salad, addictive as a starter and perfect as lunchbox fillers. The problem however is that most people think it is quite a cheffie thing to prepare. Or that you need loads of expensive equipment. Well you […]

Camembert Salad with Summer Fruit – Give-away!

Posted on January 19, 2017 by in cheese

Camembert Salad

Camembert Salad with Summer fruit, honeyed walnuts and a lemon curd salad dressing. You want summer on a plate, this is it! Camembert salad is usually nuggets of crumbed Camembert on a bed of rocket. Nothing wrong with that, but we are currently in the grips of a heat wave so frying anything would be […]

Baked Brie with pesto and roasted tomatoes

Posted on December 15, 2016 by in cheese

Baked Brie

Baked Brie is from the gods. Seriously, I don’t do it often, because I have no control. Baked Brie is brie on steroids, it takes this already delicious cheese to another level. It is definitely a showstopper too. Whether you make individually  wrapped cheeses or one big round, your guests will love it. It is […]

Snack Times become feasts with a little planning

Snack Times

Snack times are my best times. Those informal get-togethers that end up being the best memories. Snack times can either be stressful and expensive or, with a little bit of clever shopping and cupboard stocking, most enjoyable. I thought it would be a good idea to give you a peep into my festive stock cupboard. […]

mini croque monsieur

Mini Croque Monsieur is the baby of the most delicious breakfast you will ever have, the big daddy Croque Monsieur. I saw this Mini Croque Monsieur on Pinterest. I thought it was such a clever idea for a filling exam snack. Yes, I have two teens writing now. I also had a little more than […]

Homemade Lasagna – this, people is comfort food!

homemade lasagna

Homemade lasagna is one of those quintessential comfort foods. A little bit labor intensive, but so worth the while. I don’t make homemade lasagna often. When I do, I make two, even three, because it is freezer-friendly. It is always good to know there is a meal ready to be heated when you are stuck […]
