onion

Onion rings are the master of me, I simply cannot resist them! I seldom make them for that specific reason, but so wish they were not that lethal. Whenever we treat ourselves to a proper steak, it must have all the trimmings with it…. fries, onion rings and a good sauce. Onion rings done the […]

Leek, my new best friend in the kitchen! Why did I not figure this out long ago, at the moment I prefer a it to an onion, it is more subtle and it gives a lovely creamy consistency to your final dish! Leek in risotto  is just perfect. It is so creamy and delicious, yet […]

Roast Potatoes

Roast potatoes, in my humble opinion the center of the perfect Sunday roast. Sadly so many people get it so, so wrong. Too oily, not crispy enough or burnt on the outside and raw on the inside. Roast potatoes do not have to give you a headache. Follow a few simple steps and one thing’s […]

I made my debut on RSG ( my weekly radio slot) with rosti and after all this time, I still get numerous emails and requests of people struggling to make this simple, yet utterly delicious delicacy. You see, a rosti is like an open canvas and last night when I posed the question on Twitter, […]

top 5 potato recipes

When I took this Creamy Potato and Butternut Cake from the oven I had this huge happy smile on my face. I love how a meal sometimes just comes together, not quite how you planned it, but better and a whole lot tastier. I knew what I wanted, a layered potato and butternut cake, but […]

This week’s blogger that will be featured on RSG on Thursday morning is the bubbly Christie-Anne Wolmarans from Johannesburg.

An age-old curry recipe – Curry Beans

Posted on November 14, 2011 by in vegetables

Of all the curry recipes I use, this recipe for curry beans is my favorite meatless or vegetarian recipe. I feel so good when I make this, because although it has all the elements of comfort food which normally means it contains sugar or starch or some kind of fat, this recipe is super healthy, […]

Potato latkes, potato fritters, potato pancakes……what’s in a name? In the end, what matters is that the key ingredient is potatoes and I think I might have told you before……I LOVE POTATOES! I love it in any form, shape or size….. I can rarely imagine a Sunday roast without roast potatoes on the side or […]

Healthy Vegetable Spring Rolls

Posted on August 1, 2011 by in vegetables

Biting into a greasy Vegetable Spring Roll must be one of my ultimate closet pleasures. Whenever I visit a food market or fete, I am absolutely driven by my craving for this delicious, but “deathly” Chinese snack. I must say though, that after about the third spring roll, quilt takes over and I worry myself […]
