Egg Salad

Egg Salad

Each year after Easter Sunday, we always have quite a few hard-boiled eggs left over. After all, there’s only so much we can consume on the day. But nothing goes to waste in our household, if I can help it, and so we continue to enjoy our colourful Easter eggs throughout the week as an […]

Grape Konfyt (Preserve)

Grape Konfyt

Grapes are still in season at this time of year. They are plentiful and extremely affordable when buying in bulk! You can buy a whole box of grapes (1.5kg) for just over R20.00! This is the time when we make quite a few jars of delicious grape konfyt, and we enjoy it throughout the year. […]

Curried Baked Beans

Curried Baked Beans

This is such a yummy and easy little dish to prepare. Sure, you could simply buy a tin of curried baked beans but trust me, this is much, much tastier!   One of my readers was kind enough to share this lovely recipe with me, and my husband and I have been enjoying this little […]

Tomato & Black Beans Salad

Tomato & Black Beans Salad

On a hot summer’s day there is nothing more refreshing than a delicious salad to cool you down. The Tomato & Black Beans salad is one of our favourites, especially in summer, although we make it all year round – we enjoy it so much! Very often we have the Tomato & Black Beans salad […]

Sausage Rolls

Sausage Rolls

It’s much, much cheaper to make Sausage Rolls at home, and we often make a batch or two. A Sausage Roll is nice as a meal on its own with some gravy and salad on the side, and they’re also an inexpensive but convenient food to pack for picnics or road trips.   Sausage Rolls […]

Pickled Beetroot

Pickled Beetroot

Pickled beetroot is one of my favourite side dishes, or as an addition to leafy green salads, especially in summer. Beetroot is plentiful at this time of year and you can usually buy it in bulk at your local greengrocer’s at a good price. I mentioned in my post Grocery Finds & Savings in December […]

Chili Con Carne

Chilli con carne

There are a lot of recipes out there for Chili Con Carne. A lot! And many of those recipes require you to cook the minced meat from scratch, which we normally don’t. If we have a little leftover Bolognaise Sauce for Pasta, which I usually cook in large batches and freeze, that’s what we will […]

Quince Konfyt (Preserve)

Quince Konfyt

I don’t normally buy quince. This week, however, I received a few as a gift. I was delighted! And it didn’t take me very long to decide what to do with them: make quince konfyt (preserve). As the days get colder and colder, I seem to yearn for comfort foods and the lovely aroma of […]
