Meal ideas can go out the window when you have so much to do. Nono Mtshali has great meal ideas and recipes that will make your family happy.
Like everyone, I love a good bite, especially one that is prepared and cooked to perfection. We are fortunate, as South Africans, to have great chefs who help us make the perfect food for our family and friends. My personal favourite chef, Nono Mtshali is killing it, not only in the gram, but she has recently launched a cookbook you need to add to your collection. It will sure help make mouth-watering meals. Here are two recipes you can try out this week:
