Chicken Pilau

Chicken Pilau

I'm still very new to the art of making a pilau. Now I eat them but I'd never attempted to prepare one. This was my first attempt. I found a seasoning box from Woolworths and decided to give it a shot. The result was absolutely delicious. On a side note - I once tried...

Chicken Noodle Casserole

Basil Sundried Tomato Garlic Baby Spinach Shrimp Pasta

Basil Sundried Tomato Garlic Baby Spinach Shrimp Pasta

Yes I know the name of this is a mouthful - but there's a LOT going on in this dish - however it is worth the effort.  Even though this calls for tons of spinach - don't be afraid, baby spinach literally wilts and disappears in the pan. If you are up for the effort,...

Caprese Salad

Caprese Salad

I find it absurd that I love this dish so much. It's so simple - yet caprese salad is like the perfect summer salad / appetizer for me. There are plenty of variations using balsamic vinegar or a basil pesto to dress it up - but I'm a bit of a purist with mine. I just...
