Easy, peasy pie

My mum will do anything and no effort is spared to bring her family and, yes, sometimes complete strangers, together around her table. She taught me that nothing is too much effort, if you can do, bake or be something for someone, just do it!

Easy, yet flavourful Bangers and Mash

Sausage and Mash (or Bangers and Mash) is a meal that features quite often in our household, but I try to give it a different twist every time.

Combating the cold

This is the time of year when it seems that everybody has the sniffles and certainly in my family we have all had a turn with a cold or, even worse, the flu.

The big pan theory

Every kitchen should have a big pan in it and every cook should learn the art of one-pan wonders.

Winter warmers

Yup, winter is definitely here and I can feel Jack Frost nibbling at my nose at night and early mornings when I get up to get everything ready for school. It's the time of year when we start eating more stews and soups.

Easy Cooking mussels

Mussels are often referred to as the poor man's shellfish because they are relatively cheap and plentiful. Prepared properly, they can be a meal for royalty, let alone a poor man!

Oink oink - I'd love some pork!

I know I might shock the socks off some of you, but I love pork in any form, shape or size! I often say that my last meal before I depart to "higher grounds" will be a crisp pork belly with all the trimmings.

This little piggy went to market

There are such amazing markets in and around Cape Town, and every market has its own unique flavour and atmosphere.

Spice it up on Valentines's Day!

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and although I have made two delicious desserts, my better half will enjoy "man food", especially if it has a subtle hint of spice and heat.

Easy Cooking in the month of love

February is indeed the month of love and since we have so much love to share, why limit it to Valentine's Day only?

Easy Cooking with Nina Timm - back to school lunchboxes

It's a new year with 365 days full of promise and exciting possibilities. Here in my kitchen it is definitely going to be a year filled with much excitement. My first cookbook, 'Easy Cooking from Nina's Kitchen', will be on the shelves late February 2014.

Iconic foodie brands

Everybody has an icon or hero; we have just survived the Justin Bieber tsunami and, for we old rockers, Bon Jovi brought new life to our nine-to-five exsistence. Middle-aged people stood in queues remembering days when life was carefree and wild. Burger King just landed in South Africa and everyone rushed off to sink their teeth into a giant Whoopie Burger.

Easy cheesy cooking

This Friday is the beginning of the annual SA Cheese Festival at Sandringham Farm. I have been cooking up a storm at this festival for the last couple of years and it really is a feast not to miss. This year, the Friday programme has been extended to 10pm to accommodate people who work till late and also due to popular demand. So please drop by and cook or eat along.

My sweet Easter indulgence

Chocolate and Easter go hand-in-hand and magazines, food blogs and websites are bursting out of their seams with recipes containing the four basic food groups: milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, and chocolate truffles.

Home-made easy cooking

Home-made yoghurt - why would anyone want to make it if the shelves are filled with all sorts of yoghurt? Low-fat, full cream, low sugar, real fruit, flavoured - phew, the choices are endless.

Easy Cooking - Goat's cheese

Goat's cheese is my new favourite ingredient. These tasty tarts not only require very little baking, but they are also gluten-free, which to me makes this a winning recipe.

Be My Valentine Menu

The older I get the more I think that this Valentine's Day thing is just a commercial trick to get us all to spend money on things we would normally just walk past. Yet, on the other hand, I remember Valentine's Day at varsity and the whole of Stellenbosch just being one big mass of flowers and giggling students. So call me a sucker for love, but maybe forcing us all to be a little mushy one day of the year is not too bad, is it?

Stuffed strawberries

2013 started with a bang, that's for sure. I think the load on school-going children is more and more each year and, ultimately, the load on parents too as we drive the taxis that must get our children to their various events. So, putting it mildly, I am a wee bit weak in the knees already and we are in month two only. Luckily, I know that the children will soon settle into their routines and things can become less hectic.

Toad in the hole

Toad in the hole sounds to me like a chapter from a Beatrix Potter book and my imagination runs riot of a frog breathing heavily from a lilly pad or, even worse, a frog jumping at me (okay, so I have a frog phobia). So you can imagine that although I have been wanting to make toad in the hole forever, I had issues - big issues.
