Breakfast Mushrooms on Toast

Breakfast Mushrooms on Toast

Mushrooms on Toast unexpectedly transports me back to my late teenage years. I idled time at the closest shopping mall and lunch would always be Mushrooms on Toast at Mugg & Bean. The memories were always comforting. It often compels me to make this longstanding...

Chicken Schnitzel – Homemade versus Convenience Cooking

Chicken Schnitzel – Homemade versus Convenience Cooking

I've spent a considerable amount of time being busy (read: productive) this past month. During this time, planning what to serve my family proved to be the most difficult part. There were a few nights of take-outs, and a few more nights of really quick meals. I used...

Mother-in-Law’s Punch

Mother-in-Law’s Punch

There is no large family gathering which can go without a large bucket of this delicious mother-in-law's punch, cooling in the freezer a few hours before. If left in the freezer for too long, it becomes almost slushy—which my children say is never a bad thing. It’s...

Now that you’ve tried your hand at making roti (ideally, you should make it at least 3 times before advancing to Mielie Meal roti), let me guide you through the steps of making this roti. This yields a super soft roti once toasted which has a soft and floury smell and...

Red Masala Chicken

Red Masala Chicken

The reaction that you expect from your guests when they walk into a home where this Masala Chicken is cooking, is: ‘It smells like Eid!’ For as long as I’ve known my mother-in-law, this is one of her best recipes. Instead of the usual process of adding the chicken to...
