 There's nothing more necessary than adding a braaibroodjie to your coals. Or wood. Or however you prefer to prep your braai.

This version takes a little longer than grabbing your government bread loaf from the cupboard but it is oh so worth it! It's also a lot more soc...

 I've really been enjoying whole roasted cauliflowers. They are succulent, full of flavour and look like a dream.

In celebration of Easter, I decided to slice the cauliflower into thick steaks and serve it with complimenting flavours like lemon, goat's cheese and toasty...

 So, this recipe is a funny story.

Apparently I wrote this a few years ago. To be honest, I come up with hundreds of recipes and often I forget to write them down. It's a habit I get from my dad.

 I never met a sweet potato that I din't like. I mean, what is there not to love? The sweet undertone, the earthy layers, the nutritious goodness that comes with every bite; this root veg holds a very special place in my heart (and in my kitchen).

I mostly enjoy my...

As a proud South African, I too enjoy a proper braai. For my international friends, a braai is your version of a barbecue.

But for me, a...

Despite being known as a breakfast food, sweet and savoury granola can add a beautiful crunch and textural element to almost any dish. 

This recipe was inspired by Jessica Sepel's Sugar free Granola and I must say that it's something I will make an effort to make a...

A love potion smoothie bowl? Yep, you heard right. 

Call me a conformist or a consumer dummy but I love Valentine's Day. The influx of red roses, the heart-shaped chocolates, the specials on Pic Nic Baskets for Two... You name it!

Once upon a time I was single on Valenti...

We all like to indulge sometimes so when I do, I do it properly!

This Braaied Marshmallow Milkshake is the epitome of indulgence and please feel free to add more or less toppings.

To make this healthier, make your chocolate milk with 1 tablespoon of raw cacao, 1 teaspoo...
