Hi. I am an interior designer in Kwa-zulu Natal, and I love cooking. My favourite thing to make is a new recipe and I vary my cooking as much as possible. I have had few cooking disasters, thankfully! But I have much to learn :) always room for improvement..

Stir-fries and chicken dishes.
My cooking triumphs
My stir-fries always come out nice.

Orange Date Muffins
This turned out very good using the adjustments other people made. No need for sour cream, yogurt works perfectly without the extra fat. I blitzed the orange, orange juice, dates and egg in processor. Sifted dry ingredients and then added the wet processed ingredients followed by the yogurt. I also added pecans (half a cup) and a tsp of mixed spice which i think made a nice addition. I zested my orange first and then removed the excess white pith all around before processing. But that's just me because I didnt see the need for the extra non-nutritious bulk the pith would add. Would definitely make again!

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls
This was amazing. They looked great and tasted even better. I set the cut rolls in an oven tray lined with foil, sprayed with cooking spray. I had no problems with butter/sugar mix oozing out. I also had no problems removing the rolls from the foil after baking. The one thing I did differently was to use butter instead of margarine. That took it up a notch in flavour. I used raisins and it was just heavenly. Thanks for a great recipe!

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies
very very yummm! I couldn't wait till these had cooled, they smelled divine in the oven, and tasted even better. Followed the recipe exactly, no changes needed. Perfect as is....and highly addictive. I didn't drop spoonsful onto the baking sheet but rather made a rough lump in my hand and flattened slightly for each cookie. Took them out the oven at about 15mins, centre slightly chewy and just right!
