Quick Fire Chicken Wings..

So for people who don’t know me, I am the most boring 29year old you’ll probably ever meet! On a trip to Cape Town, I left the club/restaurant we were in to get ingredients, so I could make wings and Netflix &Chill (by myself) while my mates were out partying! Hahaha! Needless to say, I’m…

Pork Stew..

Hey family! Johannesburg weather is being so funny right now, thunderstorms are set for today and tomorrow, but I’ve got the perfect meal to comfort you throughout! I love cooking with pork because it takes flavor on quite well, and right now is such a cheaper alternative to every meat we have! I particularly like…

Venison Shank…

Hey guys, It’s been a while! I have so much going on in my life, but that needs a completely different post! Ha! I’m in my time of needing comfort, and since I’m currently single – food seems to be the best way to get a little bit of that.. I love hearty meals, and…

Fried Friday Chicken..

So it’s the weekend!! I’m excited I get to indulge! I’m not sure what I’m gonna make, but I have a suggestion for you, this Crispy Fried Chicken is the perfect! It’s brined in buttermilk overnight, and that leaves it super moist and ultra juicy!! But you gotta be careful when frying, if the oil…

Chicken, Sausage and Potato Tray Bake..

So guys I’m really sorry! I was meant to put this recipe up on Monday already, but life took over and I’m only getting to it now. I love a good tray bake, because it’s a time saver, and all the flavors infuse so well because everything is mixed together! I especially love this recipe…

Simple tripe and Samp.. (Ulusu no’Mnqusho)

Hi family! I hope everyone’s been good, keeping warm and stuff. I’ve had one long winter.. spent all of it sick, and when I have the energy to cook, my comfort is in food. My favorite this winter, has been tripe.. I’d made tripe before, but hadn’t quite gotten it right. It was store bought…

Fragrant Lamb Curry..

Winter is a season that forces one to seek comfort in food.. rich flavorful food that’s cooked with love and care. Lamb Curry is such a food.. the meat in itself had a delicate flavor, and too many flavors can change it to the point where you lose that, but the right combination of spices…
