Caryl’s Recipe Collection – Aubergine Lasagne

Caryls Recipe Collection Aubergine Eggplant Lasagne South Africa Cape Town Family Heritage

This dish could be vegetarian, as it has no meat, but there is cheese added, so I would say vegetarians can say it for themselves if it suits their diet. I frequently make this dish as a meatless option for our dinners at the farm, and it is enjoyed very much by our guests.

Caryl’s Recipe Collection – Christmas Cake

Esona Christmas Cake Recipe South Africa

My Story… It’s that time of the year again when we womenfolk generally wish it was all over before it even began, but never-the-less it is a wise woman (or man) who has a few ‘stand-by’s’ in the cupboard for the holiday season. This fruit cake is just one of them, besides some other recipes […]

My Story… My mother was born in 1918, the year of the close of World War I. Life was pretty tough for everyone then. Coming home from the war were many fathers, brothers, and uncles.  This should have been a happy time, and maybe it was for a few, but most men were maimed physically […]
