    1 Year of Le Famished Cat ๐Ÿง

    One year ago, I hit PUBLISH and one of my biggest dreams came true – I finally found a way to make food apart of my day to day life and subsequently – my career path.ย This week I am celebrating my blogs one-year birthdayโ€ฆ and I am feeling, well, a bit proud! The Growth Curve I cannot believe how much I have learned in the last year – I know it sounds cheesy – but it is so true. When I started blogging last year March, I had no idea what I was doing – except that I knew that I wanted to have a place to store recipes. You…

    Cadbury Dairy Milk – Easter Range

    You guys must know by now that I have a severe weakness for chocolate. So I just HAD to let you know that Cadbury Dairy Milk has a new easter egg range.  There are three different easter egg variants to choose from, including these Hollow Eggs that are filled with Astros and Whispers…๐Ÿ˜ What’s more exciting than eating chocolate only to discover more chocolate hidden inside?  And the best part, (in my opinion anyway) Cadbury Dairy Milk has now introduced marshmallow eggs called Fluffies! They come in a box of 30 or at some stores, you can find the individual marshmallow eggs. Let’s talk about these Fluffies. First off, the…

    Dairy Free Milk Alternatives & Banana Milk Recipe

    When it comes to milk alternatives, there is a multitude of Dairy Free, plant milks on offer in South Africa. Just visit any Dischem, Clicks, Checkers, and Woolworths and you will have the option to try them all. I try to follow a dairy free diet as much as possible (partly because of my IBS issues, partly because of wanting to eat fewer animal products) so choosing to drink non-dairy milk is a no-brainer for me. However, with so many choices, how do we know which type of non-dairy milk to buy? How do we know which type works best in which recipe? Today I am breaking down all the…

    The Refillery brings Zero Waste Shopping to Jozi

    Many of us routinely reduce, reuse and recycle in order to lessen the mountain of waste sent to landfill each day. We use environmentally friendly straws, buy fruit and vegetables ‘naked’ and take our own reusable bags to the store. Sadly though, this isnโ€™t enough and weโ€™re still facing a world where there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish by 2050. Thankfully, the new global phenomenon of zero waste stores is making it easier to make the right choice for our planet โ€“ and The Refillery has opened its doors as the first zero-waste store in Johannesburg. The Refillery is an exciting, new planet-friendly grocer offering a…

    Blue Spirulina Chocolate Bounty Bars

    Time for a chocolate bar reinvention and today it’s these Blue Spirulina Chocolate Bounty Bars. Chocolate and Coconut go together perfectly and Bounty Bars are a perfect example of this union. So there is no need to reinvent the wheel to recreate these chocolate bars – just small tweaks and additions.   Breaking down the recipe I donโ€™t know about you, but I love making goodies from scratch. It usually tastes way better and you know exactly what goes in it.ย Take homemade pesto or homemade almond butterย for instance. For these Blue Spirulina Chocolate Bounty Bars, I didn’t want to add any extra sugar to the coconut mixture, so it’s just…

    Cucumber and Mint Malfy G&T’s

    Happy Friday and what better way to cool off after work than with these Cucumber and Mint Malfy G&T’s? Green smoothies are everywhere, so why shouldn’t we blend up the usual green smoothie suspects to create a ‘healthier’ gin cocktail? This Cucumber and Mint G&T is light, refreshing, and icy cold. I only added a spoonful of white sugar to sweeten up this cocktail, but you can omit or if you prefer, swap out for honey or maple syrup. How I made this Cucumber and Mint Malfy G&T’s For this G&T, I blended the cucumber, mint, sugar and lime juice in my Nutribullet. I then poured this mixture through a…

    Staying at Hudson’s on 12th in Rivonia

    Established in 1995, ‘Melleneys Exclusive Guest House’ is now under new ownership and has been fully refurbished and re-launched as Hudsons on Twelfth Exclusive Guesthouse. Shaun and I were invited to spend an evening at the ‘new’ hotel – which very luckily fell over his birthday! We headed over there after work on a Friday afternoon for some R&R, as well as a specially prepared five course dinner. A little history on the hotel “Melleneysโ€ was one of the first established Guest Houses in the Rivonia area in 1995, starting off with only four rooms and was the only premises in Johannesburg to obtain 5 stars at that time.
