Sausages….. Square Ones!

As some of you know I am a real foodie. I love food. Nearly all food, sadly I can no longer eat shell fish but everything else can be chopped, cooked, made with love and I’ll eat it! With that in mind and a total lack of self control I find myself back on the…

Slow cooker Pork

I love my slow cooker but we have had our fair share of disasters together. Mainly dried out chicken or meat that’s so soggy you could wrong it out! But it’s never stopped me trying. This is a deliciously spicy dish that’s slimming world friendly. If you are not following slimming world it’s less fiddly…

The journey continues……. So, last night, I was going to blog but Jet Lag claimed me….. I can never understand how no matter what you do to avoid it, Jet Lag WILL get you.  It’ is however a small price to pay for visiting Los Angeles. This was one of my favourite views from our…

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,…

Curry -vs- Pie

So the left-overs battle continued during the Christmas/New year break.  We had friends over for dinner, and I could not for the life of me decide whether to do a Turkey & Ham Thai green curry, or a traditional “left-overs” pie.  I do love some pastry post Christmas.  Well, I decided that the battle could…

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…

Readers Lamb

I love hearing about your kitchen triumphs. This week, one of my original blog followers, who has, I have to say always been very supportive and kind about my recipes and ramblings, emailed me with a few additional questions about my slow cooked leg of lamb recipe. We discussed gravy options, substituting the mint sauce…

The Second Half

Lamb, one of those meats that, when roasting, fills the house with a delicious smell. I always use a lot of garlic and herbs when roasting lamb, and you will always find me hovering around the oven when the lamb is cooking, like a hungry dog, sniffing the air, waiting. I knew this recipe, when…

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…

Stir-Fry Coleslaw & Farm Shop Produce

I think I maybe going to the long title on a blog post award, maybe there is an OSCAR category for that? I love the OSCARS it means that normally I am only a few short weeks away from my first trip of the year to LA.  We like to go a few times each…
