Food, Out and About

Stacking up

"We're going on an adventure" It was these words, uttered by Leanne, that resulted in us ending up at The Stack one Saturday,  a Brasserie and Bar. We had taken the long way round - starting off in Hout Bay and making our way through Camps Bay, stopping to marvel at the waves hurling into… Continue reading Stacking up

A Clay to Remember

On a beautifully warm start of Spring Sunday, I decided to take my sisters out to check out the Clay Cafe in Hout Bay.

Good Food & Wine Show 2014

On Saturday, Leanne and I attended the Good Food and Wine Show 2014 at the CTICC. And, let's be honest, after my last two (frankly too emotional for my own liking) posts, aren't you glad I'm back to blogging about food and clothes? Disclaimer: I didn't manage to take many (well, any, to be completely… Continue reading Good Food & Wine Show 2014


Let Them Eat Cake: A Guide to Making a Homemade Minion Cake

It was my sister's 11th birthday earlier in the week, and she really wanted a minion cake. After scouting around cake shops, I decided to try to make one myself because there was no fricking way I was spending R400 for something I could make myself. I checked the internet for some "DIY minion cake" recipe… Continue reading Let Them Eat Cake: A Guide to Making a Homemade Minion Cake
