I have been reading a few articles lately about “the expat experience” in London (as if there is only ONE experience expats can possibly have!).  With all the fantastic vibe that has been generated in South Africa with the tremendously successful FIFA World Cup 2010, it seems to have become fashionable to paint South Africans living […]

Missing:  one CookSister blogging mojo, presumably left behind in Cape Town.  Much loved.  Reward offered for its safe return…   Don’t worry, this isn’t going to be one of those “I’m taking a break” (translation: I’m never coming back) posts with which the blogosphere is littered, just my attempt to explain my woefully inadequate blogging record since my […]

Tuna toasties for a busy Friday night

February 27, 2009

But show me a quicker, easier and tastier dish […]

Smoked salmon mini-quiches with sour cream & caviar

February 11, 2009

  You know how they say that good things happen in threes?  Or am I getting confused with bad things happening in threes?  We had a cleaner-cum-nanny when I was a little girl, a woman I loved so much I was convinced she was part of the family, and used to list her when I […]

Pizza fish – fun for the whole family

February 6, 2009

It is a truth universally acknowledged that most children have a highly skeptical opinion of the value of eating vegetables. Everyone I know has a story about hiding their peas under their chicken bones to avoid eating them; or scooping pumpkin onto their sibling’s plate when said sibling wasn’t looking; or surreptitiously passing vegetables to their pet […]
