Cold Vietnamese Noodle Salad

Cold Vietnamese Noodle Salad

It was so hot in Cape Town that I didn’t feel like eating food or meat. I wanted something light that was still tasty and had all those umami flavors. This is Vietnamese inspired, as I wanted to make a more traditional dressing but did […]

Weekly Grocery Haul: 29 October 2017

Weekly Grocery Haul: 29 October 2017

Hey guys, it feels like it’s been a while since I did one of these, but that’s probably because I didn’t get a chance to go haulin’ during the week. Note to self, Food Lover’s on a Sunday isn’t a great idea lol. Is there […]

Chicken Chow Mein

Chicken Chow Mein

I made these noodles two weeks ago. To be honest, I didn’t know what it was going to be when I started cooking. We had gone out and got home quite late and I ended up cooking in a rush which resulted in me taking […]

How to save money on groceries so you can spend it at Zara

I’m all about that budget life when it comes to grocery shopping, so I can do (buy) the things I really enjoy. My grocery shopping philosophy is like my fashion philosophy. Save money on the basics and splurge on accessories and key items. Your capsule […]

Recco Con Pollo {Primi Piatti}

Sugar & Baking

Sugar & Baking

I asked you guys if you would like an educational post, and most of you said yes, so here it is. I thought this would be a good idea as we are always talking about sugar in baking and substitutes for it. In order to […]

Black Pepper & Ginger Beef Stir Fry

Black Pepper & Ginger Beef Stir Fry

I love oyster sauce, black bean sauce and all those other stir fry sauces that you can buy ready made. The only problem I find with buying these sauces is I always use it once or twice then forget about it and it goes to […]

Weekly Grocery Haul: 10 October 2017

Since my timetable changed last week, I have practical class on Wednesday afternoon instead of morning. Thus decided to do my weekly haul one day early. The weekend seemed really busy and even though I admittedly did not do much cooking I was in desperate […]

Sriracha Chicken Marinade

Sriracha Chicken Marinade

I made this marinade for chicken legs but any pieces of chicken would do. You could even use this as a marinade for a Braai (barbecue), just make extra to baste your chicken with while it cooks. It is quite spicy so feel free to adjust […]
