Foodie Friday | Green Bean Stew

Today’s Foodie Friday recipe is another family favourite, even tho we don’t cook it so often. It’s a perfect dish for the colder months but it a slow cooking process so please allow ample time if you’d like to prepare this stew.

Foodie Friday | Mug Cake with a Dutch twist

There are many recipes online for mug cakes but I’ve always been skeptical about making one, even tho some of them looked so delicious. In my book things need to be warmed up in a microwave and it’s used to pop popcorn, not to cook and bake in. Something about those wavy things going on inside a microwaves just scare me a bit. I’m a traditional oven and stove top home cook and damn proud of it! Mug Cake with a Dutch twist. But getting back to the mug cake, my hubby came across a video on facebook about how easy it is…

Foodie Friday | Mixed Berry Sponge Cake

On Wednesday the 8th of April my gran turned 89 years old. We treated her by taking her to Flava cafe for lunch and later that evening we had some friends over for cake, savory tart and milk tart. Last year I made my gran a green fig cake, you can find the recipe here, she absolutely adores figs, I went to Woolworths to find the main ingredient for that cake but it was no where to be found so I made another cake with Berry Coulis from Woolworths SA, which was a huge success and I’m sharing the recipe…
