Homemade Banana Bread with a cheeky Lemon Curd spread

Having bananas go bad is probably even better than just having them, it means you get to make Banana Bread which is oh so easy! I baked this recipe back in February, it has been sitting on my to-do list for ages. Then the world changed!

Shortly after the first case of Covid-19 in South Africa, our government set up a plan and asked that ... Continue Reading

Refreshing Summer Ginger Beer, A Perfect Poolside Drink

Johannesburg has been knocked by heatwave after heatwave and it wasn't even officially summer. Now that it actually is summer, I am so nervous about how much hotter it could get!

How to Crack Open a Coconut using 2 Simple Home Tools

Fresh coconut can be a really delicious treat or used to make your own coconut milk. Buying it whole is much cheaper than buying it from the shops pre-cut and ready to eat. Recently I popped into Food Lovers and they had a special, 2 for R25 which is a bargain if you ask me! If you are buying fresh coconuts in South Africa you will probably find them still slightly covered in their hairy coir fibres. Tear off the fibres to reveal the coconut shell underneath and chuck the coir fibres into ... Continue Reading
