Mac n Cheese with Panchetta Crumbs

Is my Mac ‘n Cheese with Pancetta Crumbs the ultimate mac ‘n cheese recipe? My husband thinks so and devoured every last crumb. Making the Mac ‘n Cheese with Pancetta Crumbs was like my therapy to deal with the empty nest syndrome. Yip, without any prior warning, they are both gone. My not-so-little-Madam is at […]

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, […]

Easy Mushroom Ramen

Meatless Monday: it’s one of my favourite days, and some of my favourite recipes of Nina’s are in fact, meatless. But, before we get into the swing of things, I think I should open with a disclaimer and introduce myself. Hi to all of Nina’s regular readers, my name is ‘Q the Intern’ and I […]

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 […]

Spinach Soup with Tempura Cheese

Spinach Soup to combat the cold weather. Not really combat, we need the cold and rainy weather desperately, but you know what I mean. Spinach Soup is like a Vitamin Boost, just goodness, nothing more. The Vitamin Boosts I’ve had in the past, does not taste half as good as this soup though. I like […]

Miso Caramel Carrots

Miso Caramel Carrots – I am sure my dad will give me grief about this. It was so delcious though, he might even approve. Miso Caramel Carrots are just carrots with a sweet/salty taste. In other words, “Ouma se soetwortels” with attitude. Let’s just talk about Miso paste for a moment. It is most definitely […]

Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Stuffed Baked Potatoes – Oh my weak heart! I love, love, love Stuffed Baked Potatoes! Sometimes the stuffing can be as simple as melted butter, salt and pepper, or sometimes rather decadent. There is just something about a baked potato that I can’t explain.  Even if I make gnocchi, I prefer baking the potatoes and […]
