Zoodles with Pesto – oodles of flavor

Posted on January 24, 2018 by in cheese, paleo

Zoodles with Pesto

Zoodles with pesto…… yum! Possibly the most flavor in the quickest amount of time. Zoodles with pesto are noodles made with zucchini for the un-informed. Which makes this dish banting-friendly, paleo-friendly, LCHF-friendly and gluten-free. Quite extraordinary for something so simple. I think zoodles came on the map with the above mentioned eating life-styles. People saw […]

Posted on August 24, 2017 by in vegetables, vegetarian

Oven Roasted Ratatouille

Oven Roasted Ratatouille is for me the new way to eat vegetables. Oh my gosh it is so moreish and literally no effort at all. To make the Oven Roasted Ratatouille literally takes minutes. You can sit back and let the oven do the magic for you. Ratatouille, traditionally, is a French Provençal dish of […]

Asparagus with Creamy Camembert Sauce

asparagus

Asparagus, oh the luxury of Spring and Summer! During the year, we have to settle for the tinned variety or if the cravings overtake common sense the imported ones, but come September and October we can feast on fresh asparagus. It seems to me that most people like to keep it simple. Yesterday on a […]

Waffle on, waffle on…….

waffle

Waffle is just awesome bread, said John Green. Waffle is important! “We need to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn’t matter, but work is third.” ― Leslie Knope  Just a silly quote I found on the internet. What I do remember though is our annual trips to Cape […]

Portobello Mushrooms stuffed with spinach or ham!

Posted on August 5, 2014 by in vegetables, vegetarian

Portobello Mushrooms

Portobello Mushrooms are the big daddy of mushrooms! Portobello mushrooms are just  grown-up button mushrooms, yip, I did not know that! These meaty beauties have a scientific name, Agaricus bisporus and when they are yound and almost all white, we know them as button mushrooms, but when they are all big and grown up, we […]

Chicken Casserole with Brie and broccoli!

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 Chicken Wraps with Basil Mayo!

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 […]

Summer Berries in a terrine for my Valentine!

Posted on February 10, 2014 by in desserts, rsg

summer berries

Summer berries need nothing more than a big spoon of vanilla ice-cream or maybe just a little chilled double cream to be delicious, but for Valentine’s Day, I had to make something special. Summer berries remind me of long warm summer days spent under the mulberry trees, eating mulberries until our fingers, toes and mouths […]

Pork steaks with roasted tomatoes

pork steaks

Pork steaks are definitely one of the most flavorful cuts of pork…… that’s  my opinion any way. They are tender and have just a little fat in the meat so when grilled, roasted or fried, the pork steaks are juicy and never dry. Pork steaks are delicious when pan-fried and served with mashed potatoes, or […]

Paleo-friendly Feta and biltong snacks

paleo-friendly

Paleo-friendly eating seems to be the in thing at the moment and years ago, Atkins was on everybody’s lips and these days Paleo is the buzz word in dietary circles. Paleo-friendly eating is slightly different to low-carb eating! Diets like the Atkins and Sure-slim and I am sure many others propagate a diet that starts […]
