When you enter the term Jalapeno Poppers into Google, you get almost 200,000 results! That is quite a lot of people writing about / making stuffed chillies if you ask me. But who could blame them? I come from a family of spicy food lovers. And I really mean LOVERS! My older brother has been known to drink Tabasco sauce straight from the bottle. My younger brother is famous for emptying half a bottle of VERY hot chilli sauce onto a single slice of bread, topping it with cheese and eating it ...

I think it's safe to assume that from now on, almost everything on my blog will ooze comfort!

I used Italian Parsley. Oh I ALSO didn't use the topping they suggested, I just fried some extra potatoes, tossed them in salt and Paprika and topped the assembled Biryani ...

I've been wanting to make Patatas Bravas for ages now. I love the idea of spicy cubes of crisp potatoes with a rich tomato sauce. And I absolutely LOVE tapas. And so when I wanted to make it as a side dish last night, I spotted the boerewors in the fridge and remembered Nina from My Easy Cooking, posting about a Boerewors Patatas Bravas last year. I knew I had to try it. Patatas Bravas can be cooked many different ways but I choose to roast the Boerewors and potatoes before hand to ensure ...
