Spring is in the air and with it the enticing aroma of braais (barbecues) being lit in back gardens all around the neighbourhood. Don’t you get serious lunch envy when you walk outside and smell someone else’s braai on the go, or is that just me?
No braai (in my humble opinion) is complete with some carbs in one form or another to accompany the main course, and sweetcorn bread makes a fantastic and easy side dish to pop on the table.

So unfortunately my regular schedule went out of the window, but I am happy to report that aside from a few lingering symptoms things are on the up for team Ulyate!
