Why Katy's Barking Gecko ?!

I love to travel, I love to cook and to try new recipes...

After returning from yet another trip to South Africa I browsed one of my Food Magazin subscriptions and

we started to envision how it might be to have a small, a very small restaurant. Somewhere in Australia or

South Africa.
Maybe 4 or 5 tables.
To be in the kitchen wearing t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops cooking for fun and nice people....

Doesn't that sound great ?!
We even came up with a name: Katy's Barking Gecko

Well there is no restaurant (so far....), but heaps of favourite recipes.

Weekend Snapshot No. 1

Well I thought it is time to offer some "entertainment".
Apart from cooking and travelling, I am a keen photographer.
It will be my pleasure to "share" some of my photographs here with you.

As of today there will be a new category....

Weekend Snapshot

Maybe the name is a bit misleading.
The photo will actually not be taken, but posted on a weekend.
The topics will be all kinds of subjects.
Of course food, but non-food stuff as well, like travel, landscapes, people, animals etc.

I hope you will enjoy it.....

It is always a special pleasure to eat tomatoes, that actually taste like tomatoe.
This can be even topped by tomatoes you planted,raised and harvested yourselves.
The second I tasted one of "our own" tomatoes, from our balcony, I was surprised and delighted.
From then on we would always going to have "our own" during the summer months, that was an easy decision.
These ones were the final harvest (that year) of our delicious and very tasty tomatoes.


  1. I've been thinking about growing my own on our logggia, but I'm always afraid they won't survive our summer holidays.

    Maybe I should lend them to our neighbour across the road for a couple of weeks ...

  2. Well they need loads and loads of water during the summer, but they are well worth the effort Gwen, give it a try.

    Try some tomatoes as bribe....
    Maybe your neighbour will gladly care for your plants then ;-)

  3. As well as the taste I love the smell of homegrown :)
