What could be more enticing than mussel meat smothered in a velvety, mild, curry flavoured cream, topped with crispy pastry? Say hello to the Curried Mussel Pot Pie! I adapted this recipe from one of my favourite cookbooks, The Pie Book which is written by Caroline Bretherton. What I love about pies (minus the ten […]

Crumpets - Snap Sizzle & Cook

Because they can be whipped up quickly with little effort, crumpets are my ultimate go to recipe for those times when I feel like something either sweet or savoury. This recipe makes about 30 crumpets which might be hard to eat between 3 people in one sitting, so I just refrigerate the left overs and […]

Pea Fritters - Snap Sizzle & Cook

I first came across the recipe for these delicious pea fritters in the October 2012 issue of Food and Home Magazine ( and have been making them as an accompaniment to many different meals for years now. They can be made beforehand, stored in the freezer until needed, are the perfect Meat Free Monday meal, […]

Chicken and corn nuggets - Snap Sizzle & Cook

Nuggets are such a popular party, picnic and lunchbox snack so I presume most people would buy them already made and frozen which provides for easy preparing and serving. While I don’t have a problem with pre-packed and frozen nuggets, I do prefer home-made food which is fresh, preservative free but does take extra effort. […]

Roly Poly Pudding - Snap Sizzle & Cook

When I was in High School in the early 80’s we had a subject called Home Economics which formed part of the Standard 6 and 7 subject choices although one could choose to take it right up until matric. There was a bit of a stigma attached to attending Home Economics in that it was […]

Piccalilli - Snap Sizzle & Cook

For me personally condiments such as atchar and piccalilli are the ultimate meal accompaniment. Whether one is tucking into an open sandwich at lunchtime or a roast chicken for dinner these delicious pickles add some serious pizzazz and extra flavour to any meal. For instance, what would a Pastrami sandwich be without a generous dollop […]

Spinach Cheesecake - Snap Sizzle & Cook

If I had to say to you, “cheesecake”, I imagine most of you would think of a mouthwatering blueberry cheesecake, a delectable chocolate cheesecake or your favourite variety of this every popular dessert which is not made from cheese like cheddar or gouda, but rather from cream cheese and ricotta. While many assume that cheesecake […]

Creamy Chicken Penne - Snap Sizzle & Cook

With winter being in full swing across the country, comfort eating is a bodily necessity this time of the year, right? Absolutely! Although I must admit I’m an all-year-round comfort eater. I say this unashamedly as I love food without being gluttonous about it. Everything in moderation. With that in mind, there are so many […]

Boerewors Curry - Snap Sizzle & Cook

I genuinely thought I had “curried” everything that possibly could be curried until I recently attended a dinner hosted by Indian friends. Amongst a variety of scrumptious dishes being served was a pot of delicious boerewors curry. I was promptly inspired and rapidly processing my next recipe development project. Needless to say, the curry was […]

Lentil and Butternut Bobotie - Snap Sizzle & Cook

The idea of this dish is that the lentils replace the mince in the original bobotie recipe, so with this in mind, you can either use your own curry mince recipe and just follow the other easy steps of this dish or you can quickly whip up my recipe which is super easy and budget […]

Carrot Cake - Snap Sizzle & Cook

As I’ve said in this “carrot blog post” over here (, carrots must be one of the most hated vegetables, yet they grace one of the most delicious, popular cakes known today. The Origin Many food historians believe carrot cake originated from Medieval carrot puddings eaten by Europeans. This evolution is said to be originated […]

Carrot and Cumin Hummus - Snap Sizzle & Cook

Probably one of the most hated vegetables next to broccoli, spinach and brussel sprouts; carrots are in fact, as the former vegetables, very good for you. They are rich in vitamin A and antioxidants. People in the know say that eating antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables, such as carrots, can help reduce the risks of […]

Cattle Baron Umhlanga - Snap Sizzle & Cook

Opulence, plush booth seating, crisp white linen, translucent glass wear and gleaming crockery are just a few of the expressive words that lend itself to describing the Cattle Baron steakhouse in Umhlanga’s luxury apartment block, The Pearls Mall. Setting out on a mini “road trip”, Nicola (Run on Coffee) and I made our way one […]
