In My Kitchen – November 2014

Welcome to my Kitchen for the month of November. I don’t know about you, but I can see, smell and feel Christmas from here. Tis only a Reindeer pellet throw away. I adore Christmas and everything to do with the season. I feel instant cheer when I see Christmas decorations, when I hear Christmas carols, and…… Continue reading In My Kitchen – November 2014

A weekend of good food, good friends and close family. Grateful.

It was Tweenie’s 12th birthday this month, and when asked what kind of cake she wanted, her answer was quick. Chocolate. Chocolate mudcake. The kid loves chocolate anything. If I introduced her to chocolate insects, she’d probably delight in another food group that she could just add chocolate to. She didn’t want a party, she…… Continue reading A weekend of good food, good friends and close family. Grateful.

In My Kitchen – October 2014

Welcome to my Kitchen for the month of October. Spring has sprung, the grass is ris, I wonder where the birdies is? My dad says this all the time, throughout the entire 3 months of Spring, every time someone mentions Spring. Is your dad one of those dad’s with the “sayings”. My dad has a…… Continue reading In My Kitchen – October 2014

TGIF Foodie Fest and what to do with the leftovers.

It was a cold, wet, miserable Friday evening. The working week had finally finished up. TTGLIF. Thank The Good Lord It’s Friday. I picked up Tweenie from Poppy’s shop and we headed to Woolies to get some cheese n biccies, a snack with which to end the week on. A treat. I certainly didn’t feel…… Continue reading TGIF Foodie Fest and what to do with the leftovers.

In My Kitchen – September 2014

Welcome to my Kitchen for the month of September. September is a great month, it’s a month of promises. It’s the month of Buddy’s birthday, he’s 4 this coming weekend. Wow, where has that time gone?  Canberra was seemingly looking warmer, brighter, cheerier, September is here! But, it’s still cold in Canberra, at the moment it’s…… Continue reading In My Kitchen – September 2014

Wibble wobble, wibble wobble, jelly on a plate – Blood Orange jelly plus some mulled wine = divine

I don’t eat jelly. I’ve never liked the texture as an adult. I’m sure I sucked the goober textured sweet wobbly stuff down in bucketloads as a kid, but as an adult? I just can’t come at it. But, when I received 6.5kgs of blood oranges from Red Belly Citrus, one of the first things I…… Continue reading Wibble wobble, wibble wobble, jelly on a plate – Blood Orange jelly plus some mulled wine = divine

No churn Blood Orange Ice Cream and a lovely surprise

I haven’t done a post for ages, in 16 days to be precise, and in the world of blogging that’s like months. A bit like dogs years, actually. I feel like I’ve lost ma Mojo. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been busier in the kitchen than a one armed woman rustling up a Jamie’s 30…… Continue reading No churn Blood Orange Ice Cream and a lovely surprise

In My Kitchen – July 2014

I can’t believe it’s that time of the month again. June has come so quickly and slipped easily into July without me noticing. It’s quite scary how quickly time flies when you’re a blogger. I think it’s the thought process of coming up with one or two posts a week, and getting the timing right…… Continue reading In My Kitchen – July 2014

Lemon Drizzle Cake – Back to Basics Baking

My right hand man has gone off on maternity leave, and I wasn’t happy about it. So I promised to bake her a cake for her farewell. And it would be a special one. A baking triumphant treat. After all, I wanted her to know exactly what she was missing as she chose to leave…… Continue reading Lemon Drizzle Cake – Back to Basics Baking

Wild strawberry and rhubarb chocolate cupcakes – A Winning combination

I recently entered a competition with a major online Parenting website. You had to invent a recipe using a particular brand of yogurt that was recently on special at Woollies and submit the pictures and recipe as you would a blog post and you could be selected to be their food blogger extraordinaire. Paid 3…… Continue reading Wild strawberry and rhubarb chocolate cupcakes – A Winning combination
