Kyk, party bestanddele is nou maar eenmaal ’n wonderlike kombinasie, soos vars kruie en suurlemoen. Of basiliekruid en tamatie. Sit nou ’n bietjie fetakaas by en almal gaan hul lippe aflek. Moenie huiwerig wees om ’n heel hoender soos dié plathoender voor te berei nie – volg net die stappe, dis regtig maklik. As die hoender só gaargemaak word, lyk dit indrukwekkend, word mooi eweredig gaar en is baie maklik om in porsies op te sny.’n Besonderse ete!
Flavours that you remember for a very long time – that’s true of this lovely winter recipe. I developed this recipe a few years ago to show how easy and delicious it is to use Cecilia’s Farm dried fruit when cooking. This has remained one of my huge favourites. I hope you and your family will enjoy it as much as we still do.
Have you ever heard mushrooms squeak when you fry them in a hot pan? That’s exactly what the mushrooms in this recipe need to do. Done in a pan, that is just hot enough to fry them in a flash, adds lots of flavour to this dish.
Roasted pitas are a game-changing recipe. One evening my kids were in the mood for pizza, but there was just not enough time to make the dough. We cut open pitas to use as the pizza base and they were very impressed with this quick fix. Just don’t use too many toppings as it will become too heavy for the pita bases. The spices in the tomato sauce are something special and the combination of corn, tomato and cheese is so tasty. These pitas are perfect for a weekend or holiday treat and even work well as a snack around the braai.
Homemade hot chocolate is so easy to make and a healthier alternative to shop-bought powders or mixes. If you prepare your own, you can control what goes into each mug of deliciousness and choose better quality chocolate that is lower in sugar and other additives. Remember, dark chocolate gives a better, richer flavour than milk chocolate. If preferred, you can stir in a little honey for a sweeter taste.
