Honey mustard chicken

Honey mustard chicken is one of those quick and easy meal no-brainers. In its simplest form, it’s just honey mixed with mustard and a teeny touch of oil and salt. Pour it over the chicken, chuck it in the oven and walk away to do other, more important things. Like maybe your nails. I wanted to jazz it up a [...]

My gran – in the way of so many women of her generation I suppose – was a kitchen whizz on the quiet. Dress a 300kg carcass in under an hour? No problem. Whip up a four-tier wedding cake with marzipan and delicate OTT floral sugarwork by Monday? Sure sweetie. I wish I had learnt more from her while I [...]

Old recipes, in case you didn’t get the memo, are the bomb. While I still haven’t really gotten my head around shrimp cocktail (iceberg lettuce and thousand island dressing may have scarred me for life), I am falling in love all over again with things like Beef Wellington, Crepes Suzettes and one of my all-time favourite retro nibbles, Caesar salad.

On a cold winter’s evening, I’m generally only interested in three things – a warm meal, a glass of vino, and my passion-killer pink bunny slippers. Since I haven’t yet let my standards drop to the extent where I’ll go out in public in my slippers, I naturally think twice when an invite for an evening ‘do’ lands in my [...]
