Mediterranean Delicacies – Beetroot with Danish Feta, Almonds and Sundried Tomatoes

Posted on July 19, 2012 by in vegetarian

Beetroot stuffed with feta

Mediterranean Delicacies was the first factory shop I visited when we moved to Cape Town way back when. This factory shop/ home industry no longer operates as a little shop, because it had to make way for a much bigger operation. A huge business supplying both the Northern and Southern parts of South Africa with […]

Ilse Fourie’s Mediterranean Smoked Kipper Quiche

Posted on August 7, 2012 by in seafood

The last post I wrote about Ilse Fourie‘s Butter Chicken, the standard comment was: “Beautiful….and the food isn’t bad either!” I got it! Loud and clear, with Ilse in the kitchen, my food and photography were taking  back seats and just because she is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside, […]

Mediterranean Snacks for the weekend!

Posted on August 2, 2012 by in seafood

Mediterranean holiday is more what we need at the moment, but at least we can snack in style! Yes, it’s the weekend baby! Hard to imagine that a whole week has gone by and 2 days of a slightly slower pace is but a night away. During the week it is tough trying to keep […]

Vetkoek with Lamb and Hummus – A fusion of flavors!

Vetkoek with Lamb

Vetkoek with Lamb is as South African as Braaivleis and the beloved Madiba. I think we all grew up with warm, spongy vetkoek stuffed with just about anything. Vetkoek with Lamb is the perfect partner for a bowl of steaming hot soup and with winter knocking at our doors, I can think of no better […]

Mini Savory Cheesecakes with Caramelized Onions

Posted on October 15, 2012 by in baked goods

Mini Savory Cheesecakes could also be called quiches, but I  think the occasion calls for things to be a bit fancier than usual. You may have  all by now noticed that things changed here on My easy Cooking, definitely for the better! Our brand new site is much more interesting and dynamic than before and […]

Lamb Burgers – mini in size, maxi in flavor!

Posted on September 24, 2012 by in lamb

We had these mini lamb burgers with Mediterranean hummus as a pre-run for National Braai Day which was today 24 September. I was in JHB at the Good Food and Wine show so Braai Day in a way happened without me today. Luckily I can as a true South African,  slap a few chops and […]

Halva Ice-cream in three different flavors

Posted on September 17, 2012 by in desserts

  Ice-cream, you scream we all scream for ice-cream! A refrain I remember from my childhood, but literally the case for the past two days that have shocked us into summer mode far too quickly. I said to someone just last week, that I am definitely not souped or stewed out yet, so if I […]

Smoked Salmon Souffle with only two ingredients

Posted on September 11, 2012 by in seafood

Making a Smoked Salmon Souffle with only two ingredients, sounds almost impossible doesn’t it? Just an ordinary cheese souffle needs at least 2-3 cheeses and eggs and flour! I must admit, souffles are not necessarily at the top of my list when planning a weeknight meal, but after a weekend of utter indulgence, we needed […]

Chocolate Cupcakes with Halva Buttercream Frosting

Posted on August 9, 2012 by in baked goods

While baking chocolate cupcakes  the other day, I couldn’t help wondering just how many chocolate cupcakes I have baked in my life already? I have tweaked them with Guinness and doped them with Amarula, but it doesn’t matter what flavor they come in, my son devours them as if there is no tomorrow! When I […]
