Marie biscuit Brownie Caramels

Marie Biscuit brownie caramels are a combination of my two most favorite sweet treats. When I was younger my mother would make a batch Marie biscuit brownies also known as "skurwe jantjies" in Afrikaans. This batch was special like ever batch was because this dessert is my dad's favorite. Therefore we had to be either super sneaky to cut off a slice and place it back in the fridge on the exact spot or ask very nicely after supper.

Life in the USA

Life in the US is quite a different experience to what I have expected it to be. Thelma Life in the USA is quite a different experience to what I have experienced in France. Thelma Vermaas, rugby wife, South African, and mother of the cutest little girl you ever did see shares her story. Contrary to what you might think the "life" out to be. She shares so honestly her heart and feelings. I can certainly corroborate with her story. Come and read some more of her travels, becoming a mother and living in the USA.

Bobotie Times Two

Bobotie Times two, which means, made two different ways than the traditional recipes we all have come to love...I like to cook the "favorites" every now and then and add my own twist to it. I guess I would never have made them if I was not living overseas, but you tend to gravitate back to what you know and comforts you. I experimented with a dish called Bobotie. It is not a traditional Christmas dish, but makes a great dinner and Sunday lunch!
