    So easy, so few ingredients, and so tasty! Simply heat this in winter for a side dish, or serve it cold with a vinaigrette dressing in summer, as a salad. It's best to use fresh herbs, which I could not get because I made this in midwinter and I had to use dried herbs.

    "This recipe was submitted for the RAIDERS OF THE LOST PANTRY Contest. Tenderised chicken breasts coated in coconut, with a rum-flavoured sauce and "pieces of gold" -- canned peach slices. Just what the pirates ordered."

    Recipe #501176

    A very simple, nicely tangy salad, which goes well with roast meat or chicken. Can be dressed up or down, of course. If possible, add South African piquante peppers (Peppadews), torn up, to this salad. Use a firm, long English cucumber and very young, fresh green beans. Prep time includes 15 mins. marinating time.

    Recipe #498059

    This is my take on one of those scrumptious Austro-Hungarian tortes. It is literally made in minutes in a food processor -- it looks professional but is so easy and quick. (I give metric measurements in brackets, as most countries use metric measures and weights. The metric weights are more accurate than the American weights, but the difference is so small it won't matter).

    An inexpensive and quick dish. The flavors of the meat skewers and the cabbage patties really go well together. This recipe can be dressed up or down, by adding more vegs, or making a kind of hamburger with panini bread (which I used) or pita or toasted bread. If you want more servings, simply double the ingredients. Created for DINING ON A DOLLAR, 2013.

    Recipe #495351

    This is not my recipe. It was conceived by Diane Heierli, an amazing cook, who develops recipes for the local bi-monthly magazine "Good Taste". I have not made it, but would like to save it for future refence. Those who are wary of raw egg yolks could, maybe, leave out the yolks. We do not have much worries about raw eggs in South Africa.

    Recipe #490751

    This can be a starter, or -- cut up into bite-sized pieces -- perfect as a snack with drinks. Very quick and easy to make! I'm giving here the ingredients for just one nori seaweed sheet, so adjust the quantities! One nori sheet will make about 9 small finger snacks. I did not really measure, just eye-balled, so please use your own judgment! This is so easy, and the ingredients can be adjusted to your taste. On taste, I got the thumbs-up from my husband, my most honest critic, so here goes ... (The photos are awful. I simply could not get the dark green of the nori leaves to show! Photos look rather rude to me. I use Blue Dragon Sushi nori sheets).

    A really quick fine-dining type recipe! The approximate American weights are given in brackets. You can assemble this soup a day ahead, and keep it in the fridge to heat gently just before serving. Please adjust to your taste. Use the best quality canned mushroom soup and smoked oysters -- it makes a big difference to the end result. It IS rich, no excuses, but is served in very small portions -- not as generous as my photo seems to indicate! PS: I think that 2 cans of oysters might be better than just one and will improve the flavour. If you find the cup of cream too much, use a 1/2 cup plus 1/2 cup chicken broth (or more mushroom soup).

    This is so simple, it's hardly a recipe at all! This is nice as one of the sides with roast chicken. As time is sometimes too limited to stuff a tomato, try this quick dish. ANY cheese which melts well and does not go gluey will be fine. Calculate on 1 large tomato (fist-size or larger) per portion. This recipe is for 3 people.

    From Paris down to Provence we had this kind of salad dressing over the freshest greens, and I could not find out exactly how this creamy dressing was done. There are, I think, 2 nearly similar recipes on this site. But I have tweaked them, and this variation is really gorgeous. Soooo easy. The photo shows it drizzled over nothing more than romaine halves with spring onions, but obviously it will be great if tossed with any salad.

    Ideal for brunch or lunch or supper! It's diabetic friendly and gluten-free. It's not my recipe: I am saving it from a local S A Sunday Times supplement, Foodweekly (May 6, 2012). I tweaked the recipe a little. Prep and cooking times are a guess. I'd serve this with a cool, fresh green salad with a vinaigrette dressing, and maybe ciabatta ... (I added approx. American measurements where necessary).

    Adapted from a recipe by Sarah Cook in GoodFood magazine. Best eaten warm, freshly baked. It's best by far not to substitute any ingredient.

    Recipe #477440

    This delectable recipe is by Elinor Klivans, and comes from the March 1995 "Bon Appetit" magazine. I have not made it, but it sounds SO wonderful that I thought I'd post it, with due credit to the original cook. I wish I could post the photo too -- looks fantastic, and would make a wonderful birthday cake for anyone! It consists of 3 flavours of either ice cream or frozen yoghurt, layered with Nutella ... yum! Nutella freezes on the ice cream but will still be soft enough to cut through. It's a very easy recipe.

    I wanted to make small röstis to serve under meat patties. But so often they tend to fall apart in the pan! So I had a flash of inspiration, and added a stiffly whipped egg white to grated potato. Obviously you can add finely chopped onion, spring onion, garlic, pepper and parsley, or whatever else you wish to this mixture. This is just the basic, simple mixture I came up with, and it worked like a charm: perfect little flattish cakes which had NO chance of falling apart! They puff slightly but sinks again, but your little rösti will NOT fall apart no matter what kind of potato you're using!

    Not a bread roll by any stretch of the imagination! But some time ago a dietician wrote down a similar recipe for a friend on a weight-loss diet, and I tweaked it. It's one of those strange, clever ideas, ideal as a pretend-bun for those who should stay away from bread, such as diabetics. I have discovered since that several fairly similar (not exactly the same) recipes are floating round the Internet. This is not bread, it does not puff up enormously, and, eaten as is, it is quite bland. But it can be dressed up with low-carb savoury toppings -- and you could even put a beef pattie between two of these puffs! I experimented a little with these floppies, and found that at room temperature, in a plastic bag, they last for days. I kept some out to see what would happen if they dried out a little, and I liked their texture better after a day or two! Keep in mind that these are especially handy to use with bacon, eggs and a side of sliced tomato! Or to use with any egg dish which needs a "receptacle", such as scrambled eggs or an omelette. By the way, you can toast them too! The nutrition table will show how low-carb they are!!

    Very nice salmon patties (my own). The list of ingredients are mostly seasonings you will have at hand. Canned salmon and tuna can be quite bland unless well seasoned. Do use a tangy mayonnaise and not low-fat!

    This is not my original recipe -- but I did tweak it. It is a recipe by talented local food editor, Barbara Joubert, of Sarie (a popular Afrikaans woman's magazine). Her recipes are usually very practical, economical and easy. This is a fat meatball, which she called "a burger without the bun". I added some extra seasoning and used an organic (shop-bought) guacamole because no ripe avo's were available. Serve as a main, or in a bun if you like. We use metric weights and measures, but I give the American equivalents in brackets.

    This might be helpful when a kid sits staring at his helping of peas ...! Nice and easy! Adjust to your taste.

    Although I know my American friends do not favour "the extra bits" of an animal, you haven't eaten a deeply satisfying meat stew until you've tasted oxtail! It's such a flavourful meat that it needs little in the way of seasonings. Oxtail comes neatly cut up and packaged, it's clean, and it's oh, so simple to cook. I made it over the weekend, and to us, it's a special treat -- being popular, it's an expensive meat cut.

    Quick and very healthy! For eye appeal, arrange on a large platter, or in individual portions. Great with grilled meats or as a light lunch with bread and a glass of chilled wine. Delicious, healthy dressing, but adjust to taste.
