Cinnamon & Vanilla Custard pots

Custard needs gentle cooking to achieve a smooth and creamy texture. This cooking method – in dishes set in water – ensures slow, even cooking and a pleasingly perfect result. A French classic with a 'milk tart' twist.

Calfornia Roll Sushi

Everyone loves this kind of sushi roll.  The avocado is what makes this recipe special. You will love its smooth, buttery taste. Make sure you choose one that is perfectly ripe. The skin should be slightly soft when you poke. Avocados spoil fast so make sure to use them right away.

Coconut Jam Tartlets

Hertzoggies are very traditional 'Afrikaanse tertjies'.  A shortcrust pasty filled with apricot jam topped with coconut meringue.  Great to fill the cookie tins for holiday season!  Just don't expect them to last too long.  Normally my short crust pastry is too much for the topping so I added a second topping for left over crust. (see 'Accompanying Recipes'). They also make perfect gifts or could be packaged and sold from your home industry (tuisnywerheid).

How to Assemble Pizza

Here is how we assemble our pizzas.  Make it a family affair and give each one something to put on the dough.  We prefer 'our' pizza than 'mine'!  Just a little bit of child training...

This is not really a diet food, yet you can vary your toppings to suit your diet.  Look around for some that suits your style and taste.

Large Quantity Pizza Dough

Large Quantity Pizza Dough

Being a large family I don't make my pizza in round pans, as they waste space and time.  I make it in larger rectangular pans that fit exactly in my oven.  Because pizza is our family's unanimous favourite I make enough for at least two meals taking in consideration the time and effort that go in it.  I would either freeze the second portion or take the next day off cooking!  This amount makes about 12 - 14 thin crust, medium, round pizzas.  It fills at least 6 of my pans. (33 X 55 cm)
