Foodie Friday | Poached Pears with Strawberry Sauce

So I’ve always wanted to try poached pears, they always make them look like such an amazing treat on TV cooking programs so when I spotted red skinned pears at our local fruits and vegetable store I couldn’t let the opportunity slide by. I picked up 5 yummy looking pears and went on a search for a recipe. No recipes I looked at suited what I was after so ended up just using one as a guideline but I pretty much ended up doing my own thing, and guess what, the pears came out tasting just delicious so I thought…

Pampoenpoffertjies – Pumpkin Fritters in a Syrup

Pumpkin Fritters, or Pampoenpoffertjies, as they are known in Afrikaans, is a delicious treat for Sunday lunches or special occasions.

Foodie Friday | Rooibos Tea Chocolate Cake

I posted this Rooibos Tea Chocolate Cake recipe over a year ago, when I still had 2 separate blogs, before I had any clue about taking nice pictures for posts and after being asked for the recipe by a couple of people after announcing on twitter that I will be making it I figured a re-post is in order! This recipe is from my grandmother’s recipe collection – which I might add is a old file holder filled with cut outs from magazines, I’m sure you all know what I’m talking about. I just love this cake and it’s my…
