Fresh vegetables for roasting

Roast vegetables? Who needs a recipe? Contrary to popular belief, quite a few people need and ask me for a recipe. I never had a proper recipe for roast vegetables! It was always a case of just popping a whole lot of vegetables in a roasting tray and leave the oven to do the rest. […]

Posted on October 15, 2012 by in baked goods

Mini Savory Cheesecakes could also be called quiches, but I  think the occasion calls for things to be a bit fancier than usual. You may have  all by now noticed that things changed here on My easy Cooking, definitely for the better! Our brand new site is much more interesting and dynamic than before and […]

Mediterranean Chicken with Feta and Olives

Posted on August 24, 2012 by in Chicken

If I see the word “Mediterranean”, my mind immediately goes to Shirley Valentine, the Liverpool mom, who regularly spoke to her wall and who one day just left a note on the fridge and deserted her chips-n-eggs eating husband and heads off to Greece for a fortnight of rest and relaxation.  I think I have […]

A huge business supplying both the Northern and Southern parts of South Africa with […]

Caponata – Delicious in more ways than one!

Posted on June 15, 2011 by in vegetables

One could say that Caponata is the Italian version of Ratatouille, because it has similar ingredients such as egg plant and peppers, but that is definitely where the resemblance stops, because Caponata is typically a Sicilian dish served cold as an antipasto and  is now popular all over the world. It can be eaten warm […]

Bean Recipes – Warm Bean and Potato Salad!

Posted on November 30, 2009 by in seafood

Bean recipes are what I look for these days when I open a new food magazine or recipe book. “Why?” would you ask and I would say, “because we are eating more and more beans in this house and less and less red meat! Studies have shown that eating more beans, could lower your cholesterol […]

Posted on April 4, 2008 by in Chicken

Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Mediterranean My husband thinks chicken is a vegetable and I am constantly trying to find interesting recipes to make his “vegetable” taste like something! I am a novice in the kitchen and terms such as “fusion” and “decontructive” cooking is not something I take much notice of. However, I think I […]
