The layouts were photographed by me with a Nikon D70 camera. Please note that the food labels, packets and recipe cards are not acid-free, so I used copies of the photos. ©

Family Recipes

The Milk Tart, a traditional South African desert was baked by our Canadian daughter in law.  The Kook en Geniet (Cook and enjoy) which became known as the definitive cookbook representing authentic South African food culture and heritage. Kook en Geniet was originally published by S.J.A. de Villiers in 1951 in her private capacity after South African publishers expressed disinterest. Photo:  TOSHIBA PDR-M71 ©

Our daughter in law also bakes Koeksisters, another traditional South African desert. Photo: TOSHIBA PDR-M71 ©

“A sweet pastry known as a “koeksister” (literally translated as “cake sizzler” and pronounced “cook-sister”).  The name comes form the Dutch koek (cake) and sissen (sizzle) – presumable a reference to the sizzling sound they make when being deep fried”. – Cooksister


  1. The red is more striking than the Family Recipe one, I think.
    Now THOSE are koeksisters! You should see what confectionary shops are stocking as apologies for them these days.


  2. Stunning work you are doing with your scrap book. And the kooksisters look delish, I wouldn’t mind sinking my teeth in one of them;-)


I would ❤️ to hear from you.
