Simple beef stew

This is a fantastic dish full of good stuff. The Buxers couldn’t get enough of it, they were glad plenty was left for Friday’s lay-back day. The potato mash was top with cheese and been put under the grill for a little while, so crunchy on top. Mmm. The vegetarian version without the meat was…

Chorizo bolognese with buffalo mozzarella

Strong flavors and yes, you have to use the brown sugar for sure ;-). -enjoy- INGREDIENTS 4 dried chorizo (500g), cases removed and chopped 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 2 sprigs rosemary, leaves…

Moroccan-style lamb burgers

The green salad with the edible flowers were a hit! The girls in the office loved them, even one of them was spotted walking around with a flower in her hair! Everybody had a sunshine feeling today. These burgers are yum. I made a potato salad for on the side too. Just boil the new…

Afternoon tea slice

We all could not wait to eat these in chocolate covered tea slices. You think it is a healthy snack? – Think twice.

Crushed cherry tomato and ricotta bruschetta

INGREDIENTS (serves 4) 200g yellow teardrop tomatoes 1 x 250g punnet cherry…

Creamy fettuccine with prosciutto

A quick pasta I call this. Most of the time you will have all these ingredients already in your fridge at home. Of course you can adapt the recipe a little bit. Replace the prosciutto by some bacon or chicken. Or for the vegetarians with broccoli. Serving warm is a must! – enjoy- INGREDIENTS (serves…

Beef and pesto baked meatballs

My new favorite easy peasy lemon squeezy recipe! Instead of fresh sourdough breadcrumbs I did use (biscuit) rusk. In Dutch: beschuit. Just a couple, I just crumbled them. The texture of the meatballs after cooking is so soft and moist, it really melts on your tongue. Try it! I am sure the kids will love…

Blueberry and yoghurt loaf

Another easy peasy lemon squeezy recipe! This cake is so gorgeous, the yoghurt makes the texture so soft. Best to eat warm. Bet there is nothing left within a no time! 😉 -enjoy- INGREDIENTS (Serves 6–8) 150g unsalted butter, melted 1 cup (220g) caster (superfine) sugar 2 eggs ½ cup (140g) Greek-style (thick) yoghurt 1…

Baked mushroom, bacon and spinach risotto

Absolutely delicious! And what a great way to make risotto for a whole lot of people. I had two big oven dishes going, one with and one without meat. The one thing I would say is that you have to put the oven dish at the bottom of the oven so it does catch the…
