Easy Cheese Fondue

This easy Cheese fondue is such a vast improvement on my early experiences with fondue that it is hard to even find one comparison. My easy Cheese Fondue is packed with flavor – something our dip-something-in-a-pot-of-oil-fondues never had. Let me explain. When I was at teachers college we had a fondue in my room every […]

Pesto Salami and Goats Cheese pasta

This Pesto Salami Goats Cheese Pasta is one of those last minutes throw-together meals that just worked. Pesto Salami Goats Cheese Pasta sounds like a mouthful and it is exactly that…. a mouthful.

Zoodles with pesto…… yum! Possibly the most flavor in the quickest amount of time. Zoodles with pesto are noodles made with zucchini for the un-informed.

I think zoodles came on the map with the above mentioned eating life-styles. People saw […]

Usually after a December […]

Pork Neck Steaks

Pork Neck Steaks, my favorite cut of pork. Of course other than a deliciously crispy pork belly, but pork belly does not work so well on the grill or braai, unless you make Pork Belly Kebabs. Pork Neck Steaks on the other hand, always delivers on taste and they are always tender. You can find […]
