"Would You Like To Come In For Some Coffee?"

First dates are nerve-wracking experiences - and then you have the agonizing decision of whether or not to ask him in for coffee at the end of it and risk having a one-night stand!  And, what if he snoops through your stuff while he is there? We ask our Male Panel for the inside scoop on First Date Sex and Men & Snooping!

Wedding Bloopers You Just Have To See!

Who doesn’t love a good wedding? It’s the best excuse to eat to your heart’s desire and party the night away! But sometimes, all the pressure on the bride and groom and all of that dancing and partying does take its toll, making the evening a little more ‘interesting’. These have to be some of the funniest wedding bloopers I have seen (thankfully not in person!)

Male Panel On The Question Of 'Friends With Benefits'

I love giving my male panel women-related questions to mull over, and the responses are usually hilarious. I was surprised (happily so) that this particular topic elicited a relatively sober response, one I think will restore many women's faith in men: 

"An extremely attractive and surprisingly sane woman wants to start a 'friends with benefits' type relationship with you. Create a pros and cons list". Enter, Peter!

Want The Truth? Ask A Child!

They say that if you want to know the truth about something, ask a child. Why, just this morning, Kayla told me that she LOVES the way my bum jiggles when I walk! Last week she asked how I make my eyes scrunch up like that even when I am not laughing - turns out she was referring to the wrinkles around my eyes!

This post on marriage has been doing the rounds on the Internet and has to be one of my favorite "Kids Say The Darndest Things" email to date!

Best-Ever Spinach Dip

This recipe is another old favourite that is the perfect alternative to chip & dip when having people over for a braai. The fact that it is served in a bread bowl just adds to the "wow" factor - it really does look like you have gone to HOURS of trouble, when in reality, it couldn't be easier!

Male Panel Under The Microscope

By now you’re quite familiar (maybe even a little too familiar) with my lovely Male Panel. Over the past few months they’ve given us a fascinating (and often hilarious) peek into the male psyche but I’ve decided I need to take it up a notch and give you a more detailed look at what goes on in the male mind. So, without further adieu, I introduce to you our very first Male Panel Column courtesy of the ruggedly handsome Shaun. Enjoy ...

Caramel Fruit Dip

This is such an amazing recipe for a yummy summertime snack or dessert! It was first made for me by my American friend Millie back in 1996 when she was living in Joburg and I can vividly remember one of her friends picking up the bowl and scooping out the remains with his finger!

Kids Say The Darnedest Things

Kayla has come up with some real gems in the past – like the time I was being interviewed telephonically by a well-known radio station, when my daughter came tearing past me in her swimming costume shrieking: "Mommy, I need a POO!" I’m really starting to think I should be recording all this so I can sell the tapes for shoe money (I mean ... Kayla’s university fund). Thankfully I am not the only one whose children leave her in fits of giggles - take a look at a few other gems I found online! 

A Look Into The Male Pysche

Expecting a baby boy and deciding whether you want him to go through circumcision or not? Male Panel faces the touchy topic of cirmcumcision and gives us their opinion on whether or not to do it. And, also find out what type of women our panel find intimidating.

GONE GIRL By Gillian Flynn

Right - so I have a FABULOUS book to recommend to those of you who love to read. And while I often find books that I enjoy, I haven't read such a spellbinding, page-turning, want-to-read-this-in-one-sitting kind of book for a very long time. In a nutshell, be sure to read this - it's my favorite read of the year!
