Cooking With Kids eBooks {In the Parenting Super Bundle}

One of the things I love, and have always loved doing with my children is cooking and baking. While my 5 year old can turn that Thermomix button to “on” like a boss, and my 7 year old can follow whole recipes, I do still think it’s really important that they can follow non-Thermomix recipes, …

Rocky Road Marshmallow Bars

When we’re off camping or on holiday, I like to take a good supply of snacks along as I think not buying snacks is a great way of saving money you can spend on things that will actually be remembered in years to come. In the midst of packing and getting ready for a holiday, …

Camp Cooking, Picnics And More With The Cadac Safari Chef 2

Cadac Safari Chef Recipes

Even though he is a true-blood South African, my dad was never a braai guy. As far back as I can remember, our family bbq’s were done on what was called a Skottelbraai – a sort of wide, wok-slash-paella pan attached to a gas canister. Recently we were camping when I saw friends with one …

Savoury Chinese Plum Sauce Recipe

This week the kids and I took a walk in the rain, which was nice on it’s own, but the highlight was finding a plum tree firmly planted on the pavement, so since I didn’t have to knock on anyone’s door for permission, we helped ourselves to about half a kilogram of plums. One of my …

No Bake Rocky Road Fridge Cake Recipe

I have such a weakness for this rocky road. It’s ridiculously sweet and it’s fairly adaptable and it’s so, so delicious! Starbucks used to do a rocky road that was like this, and smothered in icing sugar, but they don’t seem to do it anymore. I’ve tried many other rocky roads, but they all use …

Barbecued Fruit Skewers With A Healthy Chocolate Sauce

We use coconut oil a lot, so much so that I buy it in large jars in bulk, but we’re always happy to try new and different brands. Some are in fact better than others.  I saw a competition from Foodies100/Vita Coco Coconut Oil, where we had to use the coconut oil in a barbecue recipe …

Passion Fruit (Granadilla) Slice

You know that playground chant, “my dad’s bigger than your dad!”, “well, my dad’s stronger than your dad!”, “well, my dad’s faster than your dad”… until blows come or the bell rings? That’s how I feel about passion fruit. Where I grew up in South Africa we didn’t have passion fruit, but granadilla, which is family …

Lavender Sugar Pig’s Ears – Lavender Sugar Palmiers

If you Google Pig’s Ears, you’ll find a variety of different recipes for a variety of different end results, but when I think of Pig’s Ears, what comes to mind is otherwise known as Palmiers.  Or Elephant Ears or Pig’s Ears – just depends on what you know them as, I guess! Palmiers are a …

Home-Made Lavender Sugar Recipe

Lavender Sugar is one of those things I’ve always looked at and loved the idea of, but never really known what to do with. I’ve always liked crystallised lavender – it’s both pretty and tasty – but aside from medicinal or household use, I’ve never really known how to actually use lavender in food. Partly …
