Thank You

Just a quick non recipe post! I was just tidying up the office and found a USB stick by the computer. It was given to me by Delos and Yvette back in February. I’ve just had a quick look through, it is full of family recipes………. I am going to enjoy cooking and eating my…

A Gem of a Restaurant

We were in Missouri for Valentines Day this year, and our friends who we were staying with told us that D was organising a night out for all of us.  He kept the restaurant a secret, and after a day in St Louis we pulled into a side street and headed into a small cafe…

Your People

A.K.A South African Comfort food! What I find really interesting in life, is sometimes people you meet you connect with on a simple level, they become “people you know” and then sometimes you meet people who become “Your People”.  You know what I mean.  “Your people” are the people you connect with, you click with,…

A Sprout is not just for Christmas

Christmas Time – Sprouts.  Yes it’s the best time of the year to eat sprouts, they are in season, they are small nutty bundles of sweet green vegetable!  A lot of people don’t like them, proboably because they are associated with small mushy bundles!!  Try them this way and you may just like them, or…

A Tough One!

It was pointed out to me recently by a good friend, that I hadn’t posted on here for a while!  For the purposes of this post I shall call this friend Coriander. I realised that Coriander was correct I hadn’t and it took me a moment to think about why not.  Well, some of you…

Orange

There appears to be an orange theme to my food recently, which for me is not surprising.  I mentioned in a previous post about suffering from chronic stress induced stomach pains.  I am also a Reiki practitioner, and with my understanding of the chakra system, the colour Orange is associated with the area that needs…

Sweet Potato Thai Green Curry

Some of you may know that I have taken to a vegetarian diet recently.  This came about after suffering from chronic stressed induced stomach pains, which seemed to get much worse after eating meat.  To be specific, after eating Pork and Beef.  So I have decided for a while to be as vegetarian as I…

Egg MF Muffins

Ok, I will probably get into legal trouble for the name of this post from some well known Fast Food(?) chain, so keep it our little secret OK!  This afternoon, before it became too hot to have the oven on in the kitchen, I decided to try out a recipe I stumbled upon last night….

The Tale of the PB & J Burger

Today not only did I try something new, I learnt a life lesson.  Never chicken out and change your mind, or you may miss out on a new pleasure! Last night plans were made to for us to have lunch today at Slater’s 50/50 Burger and Sports bar in Pasadena. It was going to be a new…

So It Begins . . . .

It’s something I have always wanted to do, create a online journal/Blog of my cooking adventures. I aim to post all the triumphs, all the disasters, and all the culinary adventures which will happen in the kitchen, or to me. There is not much to look at right now, I have only just set up…
