Recipes I've Shared:

Pot Roast (Jman's recipe)

Pot roast beef with mango chutney, spices and red wine.

Melkkos with crushed walnuts and cinnamon

Melkkos! Comfort winter food from my childhood.

Spicy Apple Meatballs

I wanted to try something different tonight and decided to make meatballs with onions, fresh chopped apples and spices (cinnamon, ginger, garlic, coriander and cayenne pepper).

Amazing Persian Sauce made with Yogurt and Egg yolks

I had this sauce tonight with chicken kebabs and a mix salad at a Persian restaurant. It was so amazing I asked the waiter for the recipe. I have not tried it yet, but I will make it soon.


Chicken Meatballs

Chicken meatballs flavoured with fresh basil leaves and mango chutney.

Beef and prune stew (spicy)

1 Serving = 1 coffee mug (280ml)

Microwave meatballs with spices and mango/pineapple jam

This meatballs are juicy, spicy and easy to make. You could adjust the spices to suit your own taste buds. Enjoy

Vetkoek (translated 'Fat cake')

Don't let the name put you off. These little delicous fried 'breads' rather than 'cakes' brings back so many memories of my child hood. My mom use to make these traditional little yummy fried bread when I was young.

We ate them with curry mince and as a cold snack with apricot jam and grated cheddar cheese. Absolutely yummy.

Beef and vegetable stew

Just a bit of dinner

Coffee Creamer Fridge Tart

Tis is an old family favourite and has been dished up on special occasions many times. The original recipe is made with Cremora Coffee Creamer, however, I experimented a bit.

Lemon and Lime Cream Desert

This brings so much memories back of my teenage years on a farm in South Africa. My mom made this as my favourite treat. She used normal jellie (jello) and evaporated milk.

Baked 'Cheesy' Paprika Cauliflower

This has been adapted from a traditional south african recipe (very rich and high in calories) to make it more 'diet' friendly but still attempting to get that 'rich' taste.

Brandy and Rosemary Lamb Steaks

Thin sliced lamb steaks marinated in olive oil, rosemary, garlic and brandy.

King Prawns with Honeydew Melon, Ginger and Garlic Sauce

A unique but interesting twist to serve prawns for dinner. If you like the dish less spicy reduce or leave the chilli flakes out.

Mayonaise - Chutney Chicken Baked

I have adapted this a very rich oven-baked South African Chicken recipe to a lower carb version. It makes 3 servings.

Spinach Mashed Potato with garlic

I ate spinach mash in a restaurant and was impressed with it. This is a trial to see if I can create it.

Spicy Meat Marinade with Yogurt for Flank Steak

Marinade meat for 2 hours and then barbecue or grill it for a spicy steak. Alternatively, cut the meat into strips marinade it for 2 hours and cooked with the marinade in a thick bottom pot.

Tuna with a Twist

A lady friend of mine used to make a cooked tuna dish using a tin of tuna in water and served it with rice. I re-created her recipe and added thai spices for a bit of a twist.


Incredible! (1 rating)
Meat Pies Filling

I use this beef filling when I make beef pies. At times I serve it with rice and a salad. Rice and salad nutritional information not included in this recipe

Grapefruit Chutney

Grapefruit are spiced with ginger, cinnamon, chilli and indian spices to create a chutney. It can be used as a fruity and spicy dip for your snacks or condiment for curries.

Cape Brandy Date and Walnut muffins

I have adapted this recipe from a south african tart recipe to make 12 muffins

Honey-Mustard-Balsamic Meatballs

My favourite ingredients iall together in meatballs

A spicy minced beef dish with a fruity flavour. It does go well with Vetkoek. (See previous post)

I make this as a spread to eat on a sandwish
