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…

Lamb Meatballs and Rosemary Polenta..

Who doesn’t enjoy a good meatball? Moist, tasty and BIG! Apparently to achieve a juicy meatball you need to add binders like breadcrumbs soaked in milk or an egg.. I skip these steps as I find mince with a high fat content tends to be more than perfect! Obviously if you’re using a lean mince,…

Vongole Pasta..

I love pasta, and I love the fact that you don’t always need a rich sauce to make it, so that fits right into my plant/pescaterian lifestyle. (Although I’ll still have a bit of meat now and again) This clam pasta was my solution for a quick midnight supper! Its light, flavorful and super quick…

Izakaya Matsuri Restaurant Review..

Hi guys, I’m back with another restaurant review (took me long enough huh) well this is Cape Town based Izakaya Matsuri Sushi and Japanese Tapas bar. Maybe because I’m not a Cape Town local, but I’d say it’s in an assuming part of town, a bit hidden like most gems. (I’ll have the address at…

Flavour Filled Vegetable Curry..

A lot of my friends are trying this plant based lifestyle, and everyone is commenting on how better they feel, so I thought I’d give it a go too. I’m hoping to incorporate it into my diet at least 4 times a week and then switch up between meat and fish the rest of the…

Yellow Tail with Crisp Basil Potatoes..

  Hey family! Spring is 20 days away (Spring begins on the 23rd of September LOL) even our way of cooking is going to be lighter and quicker in anticipation of Summer! I honestly can’t wait to be drinking more wine and eating cold fruit! Today’s recipe is pairs well with a salad and a…

Comforting Lasagne Bowls..

Hi guys!! It’s quarter to weekend so I know we’re all excited right!! I can’t wait for Saturday when I get to cuddle in with a bowl of comforting lasagne and relax. This recipe is so good and cheesy I can’t wait to make it again!! I love the versatility of mince/ground meat, and I…

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…

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…
