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 […]

“Spaghetti” bolognese – The LCHF version

Instead of eating pasta we usually use zoodles, which is grated zucchini so it looks like spaghetti. I got a bit over it and wanted to try something different so I tried cabbage instead. When I mentioned this to David he was very hesitant. Cabbage is pretty gross – it brings up images of it being steamed to a green slimy mush. I have discovered a yummy way of making it – frying it in butter. I did this to make the “spaghetti” part of the meal. For the bolognese part you need; 1 x mince meat punnet 1 x […]
