smoked chicken

Smoked chicken has become a stock item in my fridge, because it is so versatile! I can whip up a sandwich in no time and have you ever added chopped smoked chicken to  your standard tomato pasta sauce ….. it is delicious! Smoked chicken is relatively cheap to buy, but making your own smoked chicken […]

Christmas flavors and colors in one delicious salad!

Posted on November 14, 2013 by in pork, salads

Christmas flavors

Christmas flavors  to me  is fruity, spicy, creamy and of course always salty. Christmas flavors  in layman’s terms, (that’s me)  then boil down to gammon, lamb, chicken, bowls upon bowls of  salad, mom’s favorite mustard, potatoes, pork with crackling, rice  and gravy…… oh my word, I get tired just thinking of  the discomfort afterwards! Then […]

Summer salad with peas and goats cheese!

summer salad

A summer salad to me has to have three vital elements, color, flavor and texture! especially a salad in summer. I want summer on my plate! A summer salad can be as simple as a few hand-picked lettuce leaves with a light vinaigrette or something a little more complicated like this Moroccan barley and Roasted […]

Winter salad bursting with robust flavors!

winter salad

Winter salad? I was not too sure about this idea. Who in their right minds would eat a salad in winter and that in most probably the coldest week of the year. Winter salad idea came to me when I walked through the Foodlover’s Market the other day and they had mountains of dates on […]

Beetroot and Feta Salad – perfect for a Monday detox!

Posted on April 14, 2013 by in salads, vegetarian

beetroot

Beetroot, most probably the vegetable I love more than any other vegetable! I love the boldness of it, the color, the texture and the almost earthy taste! Some foods are just better with beetroot, like my mom’s tenderized steak and green bean stew, dishes that would just be well, incomplete without the sweet-n-sour addition of […]

This salad can be my main course, starter or in-between-meal-snack  any day and I will be a happy camper. It ticks all the right boxes, salty, sweet, colorful and so  so tasty! The salad is so easy to make,  yet making the crumbed goats cheese requires some effort ( not skill), but if you can […]

chicken

Chicken on the menu three times a week would cause havoc in most families, especially with the dads in those families, but here in my kitchen it features very often. Chicken is just so versatile and I can twist and tweak it in so many ways that no one will even notice that they are […]

Falafel Salad – Meatless, but most definitely not tasteless!

Posted on January 27, 2013 by in salads, vegetarian

falafel

A falafel is my favorite market snack. The first thing I eat whenever I visit one of Cape Town’s many  foodmarkets, is a crunchy, golden-fried falafel. I can’t be bothered for them to put it in a pita with the usual coleslaw and yogurt dressing…… I want a plain falafel. I want to savor every […]
