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.

Cheese Tower

A cheese tower or tower of cheese can NEVER be a bad thing, especially over the festive season. I made this cheese tower, because so many people have asked me about cheese towers for special occassions, like weddings, 21st parties of just special birthday celebrations.  I had all intentions do do this post earlier in […]

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. […]

My Christmas Baked Alaska is perfect for a South African Christmas. A Summer Christmas with sun and sea and open skies.

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.

Yogurt, eaten in tubs-full in my house at the moment! no, not low-far Bulgarian kind….. thick lusciously creamy Greek-style yogurt! Yogurt has practically taken over the dairy aisle! It’s getting more and more difficult to see the more traditional dairy foods, such as cottage cheese, buttermilk and sour cream, in the sea of yogurt options. […]
