Pannenkoeken (Dutch Pancakes)

Brunch is my favourite meal on weekends. If I could I would eat brunch everyday! Im always looking for new ways to serve up the standard eggs, bread and and pancakes.

House of Cards -Ribs Revisited

In honour of the release of the third season of House of Cards I decided to revisit one of my fav recipes for Beef Ribs. If you are a fan of the show you will understand why… Honestly I forgot how amazing these ribs are. These ribs just make me happy. Couple that with some […]


Shrimp Coconut Curry

  This Mommy Monday features my mom’s amazing shrimp curry. The curry is deceptively rich tasting. It is actually quite healthy, using coconut milk for the creaminess rather than real cream. You can also increase the nutrition factor by using coconut oil as well. This one is great served with plain white or brown rice. […]

Pizza on the Barbie (BBQ)

Believe it or not I am not a fan of pizza. Especially not the delivery kind. I always find it way too greasy. But switch it to homemade pizza and I am all over it! I like to make them little personal style pizzas and choose all my fav toppings. That way everyone is happy. […]
