Nice on 4th, Parkhurst, Johannesburg

“Nice” just is the wrong name for this bakery/bookshop.  It should be called “Amazing” or “Divine” or “Heavenly”.  “Nice” is thoroughly inadequate! I always approach bakeries and cake shops with a bit of a sinking heart.  I know I am going to be disappointed.  I know that the lovely looking gluten free cake will have…

Greek Quinoa

Have you tried Quinoa yet?  If not, you really should! Quinoa is a gluten free “ancient grain”.  It is a really good source of protein, fiber and iron.  It has a bunch of essential amino acids, which are great for weight loss.  It’s also super trendy at the moment for some reason. I am not…

Strange Omelette

Have you ever read Whoopi Goldberg’s book, “Book“?   It’s an autobiography, but written in the funniest way possible.  It’s in my top 3 books of all time, which for those of you who know me, is an indication of how good it is!  I have read far too many books, if there is such a…

Veuve Brunch!!!!

That’s right peeps!  There is a brunch that has Veuve Clicquot!!!!!! Look….. I kind of don’t want to write this because then you’ll all know about it and it will get super popular.  If that happens, I won’t be able to get a table as often as I would like to!  I have a feeling…

Typing & Eating

Because that’s what you do when you have one of the best lunches you’ve ever had from a “sandwich bar” type place! Thank you to Pret to Go from your very new but very happy customer!! This morning was not a good morning for me on the getting ready front.  In fact, it’s a miracle…

Kicking Healthy

I went to see a nutritionist the other day as part of my ongoing treatment for my stomach issues.  Where I have been so ill for the last few months, I am missing out on valuable nutrients or something.  There was a big explanation from my doctor about it.  I switched off after a while….

Pizza Cravings

Me, yesterday….   The result…   Freedom Pizza rocks! 

Posh Burgers

You know how I wrote a love note to Claw the other day, and said how I don’t like going out on Thursday nights?  Yeah, well, Saturday nights are the same.  I generally am shattered from Friday’s activities, and sorting myself out for the week ahead. (Writing this blog is actually highlighting that I need…

Spaghetti Squash, Part 2

Yes… this is going to turn into a 4 part series!  I can only eat half a squash in one dinner! So, last night I had half a spaghetti squash to play with, and didn’t want to do the same recipe again.  That would be boring and I am not boring – in the kitchen anyway!…

Spaghetti Squash

I have been looking for spaghetti squash for such a long time.  I really enjoy the flavour and the texture, and think it makes a great low carb side dish.  However, I was starting to come to the conclusion that I was never going to find it again.  I hadn’t seen it in London, Johannesburg…
