Rice Pudding with Poached Guavas

This creamy rice pudding is without a doubt one of my fondest food memories. I tasted this creamy rice pudding at a cook-off held at The Palms Market a few years ago. Vickie De Beer food editor of Rooi Rose, made these beautiful jam jars filled with the creamiest rice pudding and soft, fragrant, perfectly […]

Elegant Christmas Trifle

An elegant Christmas trifle to adorn your dessert table. The Elegant Christmas Trifle may see complicated to make ans assemble, but I can assure you, it is childs play. Not really a child-friendly dessert though, as it is spiked a little with Fairview La Beryl Blanc. Afterall what is Christmas without the cheer. First of all, […]

Mini Yogurt Cheesecakes

Mini yogurt Cheesecakes with quick strawberry jam – O, oh my gosh, I could not stop eating. I stopped counting at 5……. These mini yogurt cheesecakes are delicious as a dessert, but not overly sweet. I think the addition of yogurt helps with the balance. I have to admit, I am a baked cheesecake kinda […]

Banana Caramel Pudding

Banana Caramel pudding – what is not to love about it? My Banana Caramel pudding had all the comforting notes of a trifle, but I can hardly call it that. It was rather spur-of-the moment thinking today. I have not made pudding for Sunday lunch in ages, and this morning I thought, IT IS TIME. […]

Watermelon Lollies

Watermelon Ice Lollies are fun to make and the kids love them so much. So when you make them, make as many as you can, because they literally fly out the fridge. My watermelon ice lollies are made with jelly, I find that the lollies do not freeze to hard and it is a little […]

Lemon Mousse

This Lemon Mousse reminded me of the classic Pineapple and Ideal Milk Fridge Tart that we all grew up with. Even as a child I could happily finish off the tart in one go. The Lemon Mousse Recipe seems complicated at first, but is is basically 3 steps. Just read through the recipe and you’ll […]

Fruity Ice Lollies, bring them on, we are ready for Summer. These Fruity Ice Lollies are so simple to make, some have only one ingredient, I mean really? I love ice lollies, even more than I like ice-cream lollies. They refresh me in Summer and I don’t feel too bad for eating them, even though […]

Strawberry Sago Pudding

My Strawberry Sago Pudding is going to raise eyebrows…….my dad’s eyebrows. He loves sago pudding, but not the jam thing, least of all strawberry jam. The Strawberry Sago Pudding is refreshingly different and it looks rather pretty, even if I have to say so myself. I have had so many requests for a sago pudding […]

Saucy Orange Ginger Pudding

Saucy Orange Ginger Pudding – Can you even imagine how delicious it is? With or without custard, it is my new favorite winter dessert. My Saucy Orange Ginger Pudding happened by chance. I had a basket full of blood oranges that I had to use before I leave for Port Elizabeth tomorrow and I craved […]

Passion Fruit Cheesecake Slices

Passion Fruit Cheesecake Slices

I made these Passion Fruit Cheesecake Slices twice in less than a week, they were that good. Making these Passion Fruit Cheesecake Slices, was just the most natural thing to “if life or your neighbors give you masses of passion fruits”. Passion fruit, also known as granadilla are most probably the easiest fruit to grow […]
