An incredibly creamy, hearty pasta dish that you can make in just 20 minutes. Even the pasta gets cooked right in the pot!

There is absolute no pre-cooking or sauteeing of any kind here. Simply throw everything into the pot, including the uncooked pasta and that is it.

  • 1 pound cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 2 zucchini, thinly sliced and quartered
  • 2/3 cup peas
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until pasta is cooked through and liquid has reduced, about 8-10 minutes. Stir in Parmesan and heavy cream.
  • Serve immediately.

Christmas is here..yay!

here are some great ideas for DIY gifts and decorations..


Pencil Holder

You will need:
Yarn white and other colour of choice
Hot glue gun
Tin cans or pot
Cotton rope
- Cut several pieces of yarn to the length you would like your blocks to be (these were approx 16″)
- Wrap white yard around rope and secure with hot glue
- Wrap colored yarn and secure with hot glue; continue wrapping yarn alternating between the white and the coloured yarn until you reach the length that will completely cover  your pot when you coil  around it
- Hot glue coil around pot or tin cans
growing books
Growing Books
Get some cool looking old books, stack them in a pile, glue or tie them together firmly and make a hole that is big enough for a small plant. Plant the green and enjoy your awesome new book plant pot!
When you have your books picked out you place them in a pile. Then you either use glue to stick the books together, or a robe, which I opted for. Draw the outlines of the pot on the cover using the plant you will use and start digging! As it happens to be I don’t own any mechanical drills I had to figure out how to make this happen. I ended up using the strongest carpet knife I found, and a regular paper knife for the pages inside. It’s very hard to make a clean finish but don’t worry about it. It will be cover with the plant in the end anyways. It took me a good few hours to finish the hole but I managed in the end. Keep in mind the size of the hole you need, and don’t use plants which need excessive watering. I chose to use a cute little cactus I’ve had for a few years. The whole process is quite messy but totally worth it as in the end you’re a owner of a cute, one-of-a-kind Growing Book!

Movember in JHB

Movember is about bringing back the moustache (Mo), having fun and doing good to change the face of men’s health, specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer. Mo Bros take action by changing their appearance through the growth of a new moustache for the 30 days of Movember, and in doing so become walking, talking billboards for men’s health. Mo Sistas sign up and commit to supporting the men in their lives while helping to promote men’s health at home, in the workplace and within their community.
The moustache is our ribbon – it’s our way of generating conversations, awareness and raising funds for men’s health.

Coobs is a eclectic contemporary bistro set in the the bustling fourth ave in Parkhurst in a new centre, its modern architecture goes well with the look and feel presented at Coobs.

Coobs sources their produce from local suppliers and organic farms to create unique modern bistro-style food. Close to 75% of ingredients come from our organic farm ‘Brightside’ in the Magaliesburg. The farm has been part of Chef James Diack’s family for more than 20 years and is now the main source for his food. “We grew up on that farm; I was a city boy in the week and a farm child on the weekend, wrecking everything in my dirt-biking path.” It is such a pleasure to know where one’s food is coming from, to be able to trace it to its roots and thats what us at Coobs care about so deeply. Everything from vegetables and herbs to pork, lamb and wild boar is free-range and organic.
