Let’s get cheesy with Dalewood Fromage

Cheese on Marie Biscuits, cheese sandwiches, cheese on crackers, cheese cubes, grated cheese, hard cheese, soft cheese, ANY cheese. My love for cheese runs deep. In fact, both my siblings have the same cheesy addiction. I can remember sitting in our old family home, around the kitchen table, finishing a block of Gouda in a […]

52 places

I love following 52 week and 365-day challenges and I love cheering people on to stick to it. But more often than not those I follow start one on the 1st of Jan then drop out around the halfway mark. (Except Megan, who even posted in hospitals and planes, nothing stopped her from completing 365beauty […]

Piccolo Mondo dinner dates made easy

Can you remember your last time you went on a first date? Do you remember the awkward silences? The questions you asked and got “yes” or “no” replies for? We have all been on a date where you are kinda into to the person but you can’t seem to get the conversation to flow. You […]

Roeks Brewery

Most Sundays we go for a late afternoon drive in search of a bite to eat. This really ends up being a “you choose, no you choose” So we settled on Black Horse Breweries since its a nice drive and not far from where we live. Driving up their road it became apparent we weren’t […]

Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

No really, THE EASIEST recipe ever. Even when it flops it’s pretty damn good. I felt like something sweet because life has been pretty bitter lately. Those whom know me well know that I am an okayish (home) cook but a miserable baker. I don’t know why but my cakes collapse and my cookies are […]

Bidon Bistro is best

Look the west (of Joburg) has natural beauty (if you squint and tilt your head a bit) but it has lacked in the area of decent brunch spots. A couple of weeks ago our foodie friends told us about a place in our neck of the woods that has been getting a few rave reviews. […]
