The Deluca coffee shop offers a variety of yummy goodness, from fine coffees to decadent shakes to amazing pizzas, burgers and samies. They have it all.
My all time favourite is their spicy NewYork cheese fries (they have it in mild too).
The portion is enough to feed two to three people #airpunch! We love decent portions. Hubby and I are healthy eaters and so it was enough for just us two. #grin.
Their cheese sauce is cheesy and out of this world… I mean taste is everything! The ratio of sauce to chips is perfect. This ratio is so important because real foodies don’t do a dollop of sauce on top and nothing at the bottom. We need an even spread. They got It down to a science peeps and if all that isn’t enough, each portions is topped with chicken strips and pickled jalepenos.
The smell is enough to make you have foodgasm!
The pricing is not that bad at all, considering it feeds 2-3 people. @just R76.00, you can enjoy all this yumminess. I swear! it’s like angels tickling your taste buds.
Whilst I make my own chilli cheese fries that hubby adores, these are by far one of the best chilli cheese fries I’ve had. Try it out and be sure to let me know.
Love and light always, from just an ordinary foodie.
When women support each other, incredible things happen
Right? I don’t even need to dissect this any further but I’ll enhance on it.
You don’t need to stand and address an arena filled with women to encourage, inspire or support each other . You don’t have wait until you’re an Oprah or mother Theresa of a nation to start valuing and encouraging women to be the best they can be or to “lead” women away from the superficial crap we consume ourselves with.
A few girlfriends and I planned a mini road trip and one night slumber not far from home. People honestly thought that we were in some foreign place because of all of the amazing pics we posted, but those were just BTWs.
The significance of the trip was to break away from reality and just to recoop. The trip was planned to act as a reset button. Time to stop. Reflect and then start again.
Not everybody knew each other however, all were friends of mine. I suggested these ladies because I know all of them personally and I know the journeys we’ve all travelled and the destinations we all hoping to reach. So with Des’s idea for the road trip and us all confirming, it was a recipe for success!
The weekend was beyond refreshing and went off smoothly, we all focused on the most important things; being our selves and sharing perspectives to enhance each other’s thought processes, sharing each other’s joys and then becoming more sensitive to the battles that us women face. We chilled, laughed, expressed, ate, cooked, embraced and loved! Oh and posed 😜
I will be the first to say that I left that weekend away with loads of gratitude, a wider perspective, beautiful memories, fun photos and sisters for life…yes, we’re already planning our next one.
The most beautiful thing for me is that we’re all so similar yet so different. We don’t all belong to the same religion, don’t all have kids, husbands or boyfriends but we had such an amazing time.
That’s all you need to encourage and support your fellow women; spend quality time with them for the sake of bettering yourself and them and then the rest automatically falls into place. We had no time for gossip, judgment, shade throwing, scandling , fighting or any cattish behavior.
So! Write your fellow women a note, dedicate a status or throw in a motivating hashtag to a pic. Go for a picnic, take a drive , catch a movie or even stay home and cook and for or bake. Pout. Anything! But start.
Imagine a world where our women are dedicated to building each other up as opposed to tearing each other down. It seems beautiful, amazing, strong and all things nice to me.

Last night I saw passion, felt passion and experienced passion at the Capsicum Culinary Studios in Umhlanga, Durban.
I was honoured to have been invited to “Casino Royale”; the banquet of the certificate class in culinary.
I dont know what excited me more…the decor that was beyond “on point”, the food that looked like master-chef quality and exploded with flavour in my mouth or witnessing young folk live out their passion like a well-oiled machine?
Passion sees no age, race or colour. Everybody from the college management to the Chef lecturers worked with, supported and encouraged these kids. It made me realise that when you do what you love, you really dont “work” another day in your life.
Being amongst all of these wonderful, encouraging and inspiring people, especially their chef; Chef Danielle, was one of the reasons that I thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
But the part I valued the most, was watching my baby brother, “Fish” (his chef nick name and dont ask me why lol) cook in that kitchen. It made me so proud as his older sister because I could see and I felt that he was “home”.
This was so emotional for me because there was a time I worried for my baby brother. Repeating each grade in high school twice sometimes 3 times,not being able to motivate him and there always being a problem at school, we really didnt know what more to do.
Today he stands as a well-known, top achieving student who is known and loved by all of his Chef lecturers and fellow classmates. Eager to start to his industry at the renowned Beverley Hills Hotel in just a week, I know he is going to do wonderfully.
To Capsicum, their lecturers, management and students; thank you for actively playing a part in changing my lil bros life for the better.
Chef Danielle has become a household name, because thats all we hear at home. She has insipired and encouraged my brother in ways I sometimes cant
Comprehend. His whole outlook on the world and attitude towards hard work has changed. Thank you Chef D.
To his classmates, a super super well done. You guys didnt just ” do it” your’ll did it waaaay over. Wishing you all everything of the best!
Boytjie, touch the world with your natural skill and passion. I will always be routing for you.
