    Foodie Friday | Pasta Salad

    I discovered and altered this delicious pasta salad recipe when I had to make a huge salad to bring to a birthday bring and braai a while ago. I like changing recipes around to work for me and this recipe makes one HUGE salad and it’s super fast to make. The salad was a big hit and now it has a spot in my recipe archives! I half it when I make it as a side for a braai or dinner at home. Pasta Salad Ingredients: 500g Pasta of your choice, I used the screw shaped ones 1 Onion, chopped 1/2 Yellow Pepper, chopped…

    Foodie Friday | Spaghetti Bolognese

    Spaghetti Bolognese was the very first thing I ever cooked and my Dad taught me! I was about 10 or 11 and he kept an eye out and helped me cook my very first own meal for the family, I don’t think this was a particularly good Spaghetti Bolognese but over the years I’ve absorbed some hints and tips and I still change my recipe every so often when I see something I can add, but I think I’ve mastered the perfect one.  My family loves it, especially my youngest brother, he is really fond of this one! So here is my own Spaghetti…
