Our most read recipes in February suggest a shift to enjoying the simpler things. Let’s get back to basics, shall we?
10. Peanut butter-and-blueberry loaf
9. Traditional homemade hot cross buns
Just in time for Easter…
8. Viv’s quick-and-easy panko chicken
Cook’s note: Add sweet potato wedges and onion and roast with the chicken, which is equally good hot or cold.

7. Potato salad
This has to be the most lavish potato salad you will ever make.
6. Peppermint Crisp tart
Cook’s note: Effortless and quick, this tart takes a maximum of 30 minutes to make (not including chilling time). The recipe makes one large tart big enough for at least 12 people, which makes for excellent leftovers (if there are any).
5. Sweet chilli chicken
Two ingredients. An hour in the oven. Done.

4. Traditional malva pudding
3. Crispy balsamic sage potatoes
Cook’s note: If you happen to have any left over (take our advice, people, just make extra!), enjoy them cold with a charcuterie board.
2. No-bake cheesecake
And the number one recipe for February is…
1. Dombolo (dumplings)!
Cook’s note: If you cover the dough with clingwrap, spray the clingwrap with cooking spray before covering so the dough doesn’t stick. For something different, try adding a cup of drained canned corn kernels. You can make dumplings using half mielie meal and half cake flour, but you can use only flour if you prefer.
