Posts Tagged ‘backyard honey’

In my kitchen…

…is a vase of magnificent tulips, a gift from lovely Keri…

In my kitchen…

…is a silicon “Home Made” stamp, which I first spied on my friend Becca’s blog.  I finally tracked one down at Peters of Kensington

I couldn’t resist defrosting a roll of shortbread freezer cookie dough and testing it out!

In my kitchen…

…are drying branches of curry and bay leaves, gifts from my friend the Spice Girl

She also gave me a treasured jar of her backyard honey, with her daughter Tara’s custom label…

In my kitchen…

…are interesting packets of Italian spaghetti.  The squid ink is absolutely delicious with a seafood sauce, but we’ve yet to try the chilli pasta or the five flavoured combination (chilli, squid ink, spinach, turmeric and plain)…

I also have spinach fusilli and orecchiette, the latter being a classic Apulian shape…

They’re meant to look like little ears, but I think they resemble turtle shells…

In my kitchen…

…is a batch of June’s Hungarian cottage cheese and sour cream cake, made with 900g of defrosted sweet pastry dough from the freezer…

Pete and Big Boy are huge fans of this dish, as are the neighbours!

In my kitchen…

…is an experimental loaf of sourdough, made with 30g of leftover drippings from a recent lamb roast and lots of garden rosemary.  The crumb is tender and the crust quite thin and crisp – probably as a result of the lard.  It was delicious with pumpkin soup, but as usual with all things lardy, Pete was grossed out…
