Blueberry Streusel Muffins

My Blueberry Streusel Muffins disappeared in a flash, hubster and the kids loved them, they were that good. I am already thinking how to change this for Blueberry Streusel Muffins in a coffee cake idea. Maybe serve with with a lemon yogurt for extra tang and texture. I found this recipe on Butter Be Ready, […]

Onion and Vegetable Bhajis

Onion and Vegetable bhajis should be eaten warm, straight off the pan, dipped in either a chilled cucumber and mint raita or a spicy chutney. Onion and Vegetable bhajis, I eat often. I live in Cape Town and my Cape Malay friends look after me. Until now, I have not made them that often though, […]

Whipped Blue Cheese

Whipped Blue Cheese is a thing of dreams. Whipped Blue Cheese is delicious on toast and crackers, but then you try it on a juicy steak, in a baked potato or melted in a hearty soup and you have yourself a winner. To make the Whipped Blue Cheese, literally takes less than 5 minutes so […]

Salmon and Potato Croguettes for a lunchbox.

Posted on February 16, 2019 by in seafood, snacks

Salmon and Potato Croquettes

Salmon and Potato Croquettes sound posh and expensive, but it really is NOT. A little salmon goes a long way and what makes it even better is that you can use all the off cuts fish. The Salmon and Potato Croquettes litterally fly off snack platters, so I thought they will make good lunchbox fillers […]

Easy Cheese Fondue

This easy Cheese fondue is such a vast improvement on my early experiences with fondue that it is hard to even find one comparison. My easy Cheese Fondue is packed with flavor – something our dip-something-in-a-pot-of-oil-fondues never had. Let me explain. When I was at teachers college we had a fondue in my room every […]

Camembert Honey Walnut Phyllo Cigars

Camembert Honey Walnut Phyllo Cigars – my suggestion is to make as many as you can, because they will fly off the snack platter. These Camembert Honey Walnut Phyllo Cigars can be made, frozen and fried just before serving for that extra delicious crunch. I love the combination of the creamy melted cheese, the crunchy […]

Caprese Bombs

Caprese Bombs

These Caprese Bombs are just the bomb, pardon the pun. Caprese Bombs made with 5 ingredients, I kid you not. The recipe makes 20 and they flew off the plate before I could take proper pictures. The kids (and dad) absolutely loved them. A traditional Caprese Salad is a salad made with fresh tomatoes, fresh […]

Mung Bean Falafels

Mung Bean Falafels are just so much better than the chickpea version. These green Mung Bean Falafels are so funky and I loved the crunchy texture. I loved the process, because you have to sprout the mung beans first, but that is the coolest thing ever.  So one packet of mung beans yield enough for […]
