Pickles to tickle your taste buds and tickled they will be! Who knew that a few very humble vegetables can taste so fresh and amazing! Pickles are so time consuming to make and then to still deal with sterilizing the bottles ……. I do not have time in a day for that! Or so I […]

Nutella Croissant Pudding and a bit of drama on RSG

Posted on July 24, 2013 by in desserts, rsg


Nutella………. if I could buy it in buckets full, my son would be the happiest boy alive! Its not that he likes it as a bread topping, pancake filling or something that the culinary world have never  before seen, he eats it  just like that! Straight from the jar… with a small spoon, he says […]

Pastry is a problem for so many cooks and again this weekend at the SA Cheese Festival, I was asked so many times, what the secret to good pastry is! My answer is simple: Know the basic stuff and you are halfway there. Pastry making does not have to be that difficult. As with so […]

Cream Cheese and Biltong Truffles – Cheesy goodness on RSG

Posted on April 24, 2013 by in cheese, rsg

cream cheese

Cream cheese and biltong truffles sound way more interesting to me then chocolate truffles as I am far more a savory kinda of girl than a sweet one. Cream cheese all on its own with a few salty biscuits is quite sufficient as a light mid-morning snack, but add a few tasty ingredients like biltong […]

Caramel Tarts and treats for Easter on RSG

Posted on March 27, 2013 by in baked goods, rsg


Caramel……. that sweet indulgence that adds calories and centimeters to your body, just by saying the word. Add caramel to just about anything and  you can start a new addiction. Caramel drizzled over even the humble bowl of popcorn transforms it to something heavenly. I made a crucial mistake and entered the word “caramel” into […]

Tropical Cheesecake, a cat and an Eat Out survey in the mix for RSG.

Posted on February 27, 2013 by in desserts, rsg


Baked cheesecake has a crumbly texture that reminds me of curd. For those of you who do not know, curds are the solid parts of soured milk that can be eaten alone or used in various regional dishes. Some people deep-fry the curd to eat as a snack and call it  “squeaky” cheese. I like […]

Marshmallows all fluffy and white in a cup of steaming hot chocolate is such a happy childhood memory and even as an adult today I find comfort in  holding a cup of hot chocolate  when comfort is needed. Hestelle Pretorius from Koekies en Cream, my guest on RSG this Thursday morning, says that the white […]

Pork ribs – sticky and easy with the Kitchenboy on RSG

Posted on February 6, 2013 by in pork, rsg


Pork ribs all sticky and sweet with a char mark here and there are definitely a huge family favorite. The eat-as-much-as-you-like rib and chips nights are normally all booked at out the local steak ranches. No wonder, because when Wynand from Kithenboy In Taiwan gave me three recipe options to choose from for our RSG […]

Posted on December 21, 2012 by in baked goods, rsg

Christmas Pudding

Christmas Pudding was always my gran’s job! My gran or “Ouma Mina” as we fondly called her, made a traditional Christmas Pudding, crammed with fruit and steamed in a pristine muslin cloth until it was cooked and just perfect. Ouma Mina always made sure there were enough old coins ( tikkies) in the pudding so […]

Baking Christmas cookies is big business in my family. Luckily for us, my mom is still fighting fit and has this job covered year after year. As with her Easy Fruit cake which had our RSG listeners haul out their pans and wooden spoons, my mom starts this job early in October already! All the grand […]
