Chutney cauliflower popcorn bowls

Date night cauliflower popcorn bowls are the perfect easy meal to impress or just to have a good time with your pals on Valentine's day. These beautiful flavorful bowls are loaded with flavor, texture, spice, now if that's not needed on valentine's then I don't know what is! I just love cauliflower because it gives so much oomf to a plant-based meal, and particularly baked to crispy perfection like these beauties right here.

Healthy Milktart crepes

Milktart Crepes have become my ultimate favorite way to eat crepes. Even though Nutella coconut filled crepes right next to the Ifle tower is hard to beat. Crepes with a view can be anyone's favorite am I right? No matter what they taste like. Now you don"t have to go all the way to France to experience good enough crepes. I combined the much loved French dessert with a well-known favorite in South African. One thing that we have in common is that we love crepes too. I guess that I am finding more and more similarities to cure the "missing home" blues.

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.

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!
