Potstickers

Potstickers are one of the major foods eaten during the Chinese New Year and year-round in the northern provinces. I have to admit, I don’t understand why we cannot eat potstickers in my house every single day. Gosh they are so moreish. Potstickers are easier to make than you might think and taste way better […]

Budget Friendly Salmon Pasta

Posted on November 28, 2018 by in pasta, seafood

Budget Friendly Salmon Pasta

Budget friendly salmon pasta sound like a little bit of a contradiction, right. My budget friendly salmon pasta is an attempt to prove to you that it is not only “rich people” who eat salmon. With a little smart thinking you can present a dish packed with flavor, show some style and not kill your […]

Traditional Bolognese Sauce

A traditional Bolognese Sauce is so much simpler than you thought it could ever be. A traditional Bolognese Sauce has none of the ingredients that you thought it would have. The secret or the success lies in the cooking time and the types of meat that you use. Obviously we are going to use a […]

Baked Ravioli

Baked Ravioli in a rich tomato sauce, topped with cheese and baked to perfection. This is the stuff dreams are made of. Baked ravioli is just normal ravioli,  but baked to give a crusty edge and melted cheese. In other words, classic Italian, just perfected. I saw this recipe on Di from Bibby’s Kitchen Instagram […]

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.

Creamy Roasted Chicken Tagliatelle

This Creamy Roasted Chicken Tagliatelle with Butternut came as a result to my recent visit to Oudtshoorn. Creamy Roasted Chicken Tagliatelle sounds fantastic.  I could picture myself face-planting into a big bowl full of this deliciousness after a hard and challenging day in the kitchen. Ok, you are confused, let me start at the beginning. […]

macaroni cheese

Macaroni cheese is a comfort food, whether you are English, Italian or American. Macaroni  Cheese is a British invention, I know it is disputable, because pasta after all is an Italian invention. Let’s just give credit where it is due, shall we? A casserole made with cheese and pasta,known as “makerouns” was recorded in the famous […]

Pasta Puttanesca is possibly the quickest tastiest pasta dish you will ever make.

Posted on April 18, 2016 by in pasta, vegetarian

Pasta Puttanesca

Pasta Puttanesca literally translated as “spaghetti in the style of a prostitute” is most probably the quickest pasta you will ever make. (Well, maybe my Pesto Pasta is quicker) It is a tangy, somewhat salty Italian pasta dish, dated back to the mid-20th century. I am not sure how this recipe is linked to prostitution, […]

Homemade Pasta – Yes, you can do it!

homemade pasta

Homemade Pasta is without a doubt my favorite thing to make. If Baking Bread is my therapy, then making my own pasta is self-indulgence. There is just something so magical about 1 egg and flour, gently converted into your own homemade pasta. After all that is in essence what pasta is, egg and flour. We […]
