These are tried, tested and much loved recipes. Our families and friends are always unselfish and devote themselves to taste-testing these delicious creations and demand them repeatedly time and time again.

Our aim is to share with you our favourite meals and the little tricks and tips we have learnt along the way.
Time is precious.
Food is expensive.

Both are resources too valuable to waste.

We want to share recipes that deliver delicious, nourishing meals - making the most of your time and ingredients.

Life is way too short for bland, disappointing food.
So ... Feed your inner cook - and Enjoy!

Moorish Cumin Beef

This skewered beef is packed full of flavour and can be accompanied by couscous or even fluffy rice.
I will be posting a cauliflower couscous alternative soon that goes really well -  without the "carbs".


2 tablespoons cumin
1 tablespoon sweet paprika
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon tumeric
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
2 cloves garlic finely chopped
1/2 cup sweet sherry
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
11/2 kilograms of beef rump cut into even strips or cubes
1 lemon sliced thinly


In a large glass or ceramic dish combine spices, parsley, garlic, sherry and olive oil.
Add beef and toss until combined, cover and marinate in fridge for 4 hours.

If using bamboo skewers soak in cold water for 30 minutes.

Thread beef onto skewers.
Cook on a char grill or BBQ (or pop under the grill) for 3-4 minutes each side.  Basting with the marinade mix.  Until cooked to your liking.

Grill the lemon or lime cheeks to accompany the beef skewers.
