Budget Friendly Salmon Pasta

Posted on November 28, 2018 by in pasta, seafood

Budget Friendly Salmon Pasta

Budget friendly salmon pasta sound like a little bit of a contradiction, right. My budget friendly salmon pasta is an attempt to prove to you that it is not only “rich people” who eat salmon. With a little smart thinking you can present a dish packed with flavor, show some style and not kill your […]

Baked Ravioli with Goats Cheese

Baked Ravioli

Baked Ravioli in a rich tomato sauce, topped with cheese and baked to perfection. This is the stuff dreams are made of. Baked ravioli is just normal ravioli,  but baked to give a crusty edge and melted cheese. In other words, classic Italian, just perfected. I saw this recipe on Di from Bibby’s Kitchen Instagram […]

Pesto Salami and Goats Cheese pasta

This Pesto Salami Goats Cheese Pasta is one of those last minutes throw-together meals that just worked. Pesto Salami Goats Cheese Pasta sounds like a mouthful and it is exactly that…. a mouthful. Bold flavors, pesto, salami, goats cheese, yet they seem so happy to all be together in this dish. We often speak about […]

Creamy Roasted Chicken Tagliatelle

This Creamy Roasted Chicken Tagliatelle with Butternut came as a result to my recent visit to Oudtshoorn. Creamy Roasted Chicken Tagliatelle sounds fantastic.  I could picture myself face-planting into a big bowl full of this deliciousness after a hard and challenging day in the kitchen. Ok, you are confused, let me start at the beginning. […]

Two Minute Noodle Salad – it’s a keeper!

Two Minute Noodle Salad

This Two Minute Noodle Salad I can eat every single day. So many Two Minute Noodle recipes online, but most of them are loaded with expensive ingredients which no longer makes it a rand stretcher. Look, I know I will be in trouble with the purists about the nutritional value of two minute noodles, but […]

Homemade Lasagna – this, people is comfort food!

homemade lasagna

Homemade lasagna is one of those quintessential comfort foods. A little bit labor intensive, but so worth the while. I don’t make homemade lasagna often. When I do, I make two, even three, because it is freezer-friendly. It is always good to know there is a meal ready to be heated when you are stuck […]

Macaroni Cheese evolved into Samp-a-roni and cheese.

macaroni cheese

Macaroni cheese is a comfort food, whether you are English, Italian or American. Macaroni  Cheese is a British invention, I know it is disputable, because pasta after all is an Italian invention. Let’s just give credit where it is due, shall we? A casserole made with cheese and pasta,known as “makerouns” was recorded in the famous […]

seafood

A seafood pasta with only three main ingredients sounds almost impossible, doesn’t it? This easy seafood meal was born out of necessity rather than a stroke of genius from my side, but it was delicious none the less! I can never go wrong with seafood and pasta and my family, because it just happens to […]

Spaghetti and-Meatballs – Refreshingly different!

Posted on September 28, 2011 by in beef

Spaghetti and-Meatballs, what a classic. I bet many households have it on their menus at least once a week, maybe once a fortnight, yet still it is a favorite amongst young and old. Many years ago, while teaching, I often asked the children what their favorite meals were, just to get an indication of what […]
