Smoked chicken pate is another really simple and very impressive starter for any dinner party. It’s great to serve individual little pots with melba toast and see everyone digging out the last little morsel. Makes 6 starter portions.

That’s it, your starter is ready. Serve with melba toast and crisp French loaf.
These little skewers of succulent marinated chicken are fantastic any time any day. Make a whole lot of them, they are great to take to work for lunch and if you pop a few in your childrens lunch boxes they will be very grateful… you may even get a car wash. These are great for the stove or the braai, can be prepared ahead of time and then take just 5 minutes to cook. (2 people)
What you need
These are very good.

Sometimes you want a cake that is a simple yet delicious and easy to make cake that anyone, no matter who they are will love. This is an extremely versatile cake which can be an anytime cake or a hot dessert ideal for winter or when you need something hot with whipped cream… you know what I mean. (20cm pie dish or spring form cake tin) I like to use a pie dish because it is usually served hot straight from the oven as a dessert, a bit like a honey version of the all time favourite Malva pudding.
What You Need
There is a chocolate cake that also uses hot milk in the recipe that is truly decadent, try it you won’t regret it.
This is a really quick and easy recipe that is always good to have around for a quick snack.
(PS sorry for the picture LOL)
What you need
This freezes really well and is always a good thing to have around for when unexpected guests arrive.
In my post of zucchini & tomato galettes I gave a hint that I was preparing myself a birthday cake which, when successful, would be THE cake of the decade. Well now the birthday party is over, and I can proudly tell you, that it was THE SH*T. It must have been the best cake I have ever…
If you get your roast potatoes right your family and friends will love you forever. You may be spending a whole lot more time in the kitchen, but the satisfied sounds that come out of their mouths will make it all worth while. this is fromNigella Lawson, my all time favorite woman chef.
Preheat the oven to 220 Celsius and place a rosting tray with the oil in the oven to preheat. (It’s vital to have the oil hot before you put the potatoes in)
Peel the potatoes and cut into equal size pieces.
Boil potatoes for about 10 minutes or until the edges are soft and fluffy.
Drain them in a colander and then give the colander a good shake to break up the edges of the potatoes, this is what gives them those crispy edges while being soft and fluffy inside.
Place the potatoes into the hot oil with a long spoon to avoid hot splatter and turn each one to get it coated with the oil. Place on a high shelf in the oven and do not disturb them for about 40 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with a good pinch of salt immediately. Try theperfect roast chickenrecipe.
A few weeks back I spotted some pasta on pizza and finally tried it today. Pasta is pasta and pizza is pizza but when combined… it becomes something more… Nom!
