Posted on August 27, 2014 by in Chicken, rsg

Coq à la Bière

Coq à la Bière sounds very classy, like it should be something really difficult and complicated to make! Coq à la Bière on the contrary is something so far from difficult and classy it isn’t even funny! Maybe if I help you a little, you will be less confused, Coq à la Bière is the country-girl sister […]

Chicken Casserole

Chicken Casserole seems like such a simple dish to make, but if you get it wrong, you end up with a dismal mess! Chicken casserole for me has to be creamy and full of flavor. The chicken pieces must still be identifiable, there is nothing I hate more than dishing up some chicken casserole and […]

coconut

Coconut reminds me of carefree summers around the municipal pool in Ceres, tanning with Tropicana Suntan Lotion and eating Coco Pops ice lollies! Coconut also reminds me of Christmases gone by with grandma and her cake tins filled with Hertzoggies. Coconut Ice is another of my guilty pleasures and at our local Spar the the […]

Posted on January 15, 2014 by in Chicken, rsg

Oriental

Oriental flavors are at the top of my list when it comes to cooking. I love the vibrancy, the color and the flavor explosion happening in my mouth when I eat a bowl of a Chinese Pork Fillet, Chinese Noodles or even a Thai broth. Oriental flavors are so simple, yet together they make magic […]

Campfire cooking is the best! I think I was born to rough it as they say! I love camping, love cooking on the open fire and the whole social aspect of it! Campfire cooking does not have to be so complicated as  some people want to make it! It does not require designer gas contraptions […]

Fruity chicken drumsticks on the grill or braai says to me, it is summer! Gone with the soups and stews and in with salads,  grilling and chilling!

Spanish cooking is bold and flavorsome and this chicken dish is no exception and ticks all those boxes. Spanish cooking also evokes in me a sense of togetherness and loud family conversations! Exactly what this dish does! Spanish food is jam packed with bold flavors.  Big flavors such as paprika, peppers, chili and also the […]

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 […]
