stone -ground flour wraps

David bought me this amazing recipe book for Christmas, “Real food, Healthy, happy children. The Low Carb Solution For the Whole Family by Kath Megaw. What I really like about this recipe book is that it’s all about eating healthy, natural foods which are really yummy instead of processed food. The other night we decided to make some stone-ground flour wraps. I always thought wraps would be complicated to make, but I was wrong for thinking this. It’s a lot easier and quicker than I thought it would be. I asked David to do the mixing because I wasn’t to […]

Strawberry and Peach Muffins

strawberry and peach muffins

I had some strawberries and peaches that were about to be too over ripe to eat. I really hate throwing away food so I went to Google and asked it for a peach muffin recipe. I then just added the strawberries and hoped that it will work… And it did. I’ve found a new website for recipes and I love it. This is the second time I’ve used Genius Kitchen for a recipe. Here’s the recipe for theses yummy muffins, including the added amount for the strawberries. Ingredients 1 1⁄2 cups flour 3⁄4 teaspoon salt 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda 1⁄2 […]

We made a little potjiekos

Potjiekos recipe

A while a go, before May this year David and I decided to attempt some potjie kos. I did what I usually do when I decided to try and make something new – I Googled a bunch of recipes until I found one I liked and then decided to change it a little bit. Now that I had the recipe we needed to set a date and then invite some people round for supper to help us eat all that food. I used the following Boland Lamb Potjie recipe found on http://www.potjiekosworld.com/lamb-potjie-recipes/boland-lamb-potjie/print/ Instead of lamb I used beef potjie kos […]

Cheesy cauliflower breadsticks

a little bit of crazy in the kitchen

While scrolling through Pinterest as one does one afternoon I stumbled on a link to a great cooking website called Jo Cooks. On her website I found a recipe for cheesy cauliflower bread. When I saw that it was similar to making a cauliflower pizza base I was a bit disheartened. We tried this before and we were not successful. After some thought I decided to give it a try. I also needed to make something to go with the ratatouille I was making. The recipe is pretty easy and the end result is quite yummy. Next time I’ll use […]

Ratatouille

a little bit of crazy in the kitchen

I’ve wanted to make this dish for quite a while now. When I saw it in this AMAZING recipe book called Harvest, that I took out from the library I was like, “yes – this will be made for supper tonight”. What you need 8 courgettes, (baby marrows) 3 medium onions, (I sued one – not a fan of too much onion) 10 tomatoes 2  large peppers 1  bouquet garni, (I had no idea what this was so I used about a handful of basil and thyme instead) 4 cloves garlic Olive oil What to do Peel and slice the […]

Nomu Flourless Chocolate Tart

Chocolate tart recipe

On Saturday night my girlfriends and I had a Galentines day dinner and I made a chocolate tart by NoMU. When I started making it I thought it was the other chocolate tart that I make – my two ingredient chocolate tart. I should have realized they were different recipes since this one had more than two ingredients. I only noticed when I was mixing in the eggs that it was different. Here’s the recipe for the one I made this weekend. You will need 60g unsalted butter 200g NoMU Hot Chocolate Chunks – I used 300g dark chocolate 5 large […]

Camembert, lemon and garlic fish

Last night I think I created quite the flavour explosion with supper. It was also a very experimental cooking experience as I opened the fridge and thought… “I wonder if this will work with this”. I was quite surprised that it worked and tasted amazing. Here’s what I did.   I defrosted two hake fillets and placed them on some tin foil. I sprinkled some salt onto the fillets then layered some sliced lemons on top with some sliced garlic and Camembert. I topped it off with a sprinkling of Nomu fish spice. I then wrapped it up in a […]

Strawberry and mint ice lollies

A little bit of crazy ice lolly recipe

I’m VERY excited to post this recipe! On a summers day there is nothing nicer than ice cold ice lolly. I LOVE ice-cream, but I prefer eating it in winter so it doesn’t melt everywhere leaving you with sticky hands and a thirst that only a river of water can quench. I really enjoy eating ice lollies in summer as I find them more refreshing than ice-cream. I Googled recipes for ice lollies and I never really found one I liked or the ones I did like they needed me to add something I didn’t really have at home when […]

Austrian Hake Recipe

Katherine Bodmer Blog A little bit of crazy

Yesterday when I asked David what he would like for supper he said, “let’s look in the Austrian recipe book”. I opened the book and while paging through it a fish recipe jumped out at me. I then “Katherine-ised” it a bit. In other words, edited the recipe a bit and added my own flavour as well. Ingredients I bought some frozen hake steaks and used four as they were quite small. (I have no idea what Zander is, besides a fish and Pick ‘n Pay never had any. Hake also worked really well) A handful of spinach – I […]
