Alida Ryder my go to food blogger

Have you ever had a moment where you’re leaving the office and have no clue what to make for dinner? I have those moments more often than I’d like to admit to in recent times (read the last year). After a day filled with decision making, I find I’m too spent to think up a recipe. This is exactly where Alida comes in.

Simply Delicious is my go to everyday meal food blogger, 2nd is Gordon’s Youtube channel. Besides sharing a love for all things David Chang, Alida makes seriously good food I want to eat and recipes that are based on ingredients I have in my pantry any given day like the vegetable burrito bowls (see recipe here). These vegetable burrito bowls have become a staple on our weekly menu. The only thing we add is sriracha hot chili sauce on the top, which you can find at Woolworths.

I started out using Simply Delicious as my go to baking blog over two years ago and after many successes including her luscious lemon cake recipe which I pair with her white chocolate sour cream icing from this recipe, its a must try! I decided to use simply delicious more regularly and this has resulted in me looking forward to the weekly email with the details of her most recent blog post.

I also have a copy of Alida’s first cookbook Simple & Delicious, which as the title alludes is packed with both simple and delicious recipes. Recipes for every season, for everyday to be precise – it’s a wonderful combination of International and South African cuisine influenced recipes. One of my favourites from the book is the Huevos Rancheros eggs cooked in a tomato sauce, yes I love because it is so close to my Shashuka favourite. I am still to try her gran’s pumpkin fritters in caramel sauce.

Do yourself a favour and head over to Simply Delicious, seriously, she saves my foodie arse quite a few times in the week, with delicious, accessible food that the fiance loves. Her repertoire includes recipe development and amazing food photography for Woolies. You’ll thank me later!
