Posts Tagged ‘baking stones’

Some photos from last weekend…

I baked a batch of Nick Malgieri’s supernatural brownies for our neighbours Shaun and Michelle. Poor darlings have had a hard week, and chocolate always helps…

My friend Dave convinced me to buy Andy Harris’ A Month in Marrakesh.  This simple breakfast recipe of boiled egg, chopped boiled potato, olive oil, salt and cumin was a delicious start to the weekend…

Remember my new baking stones from this month’s In My Kitchen post?

They worked so well that I bought two more for the bottom shelf.  Now I can bake looong loaves!  These ones are filled with roasted garlic…

…and these are a high hydration ciabatta dough…

A simple birthday cake for Pete’s brother, Uncle Steve, made by baking the yoghurt cake recipe in a 20cm/8″ round pan, sandwiching it with Pete’s raspberry jam, and topping it with a vanilla buttercream frosting.  The nasturtiums are from the garden…

Our bishop’s crown chillies are ripening! These gorgeous bells are sweet with a medium heat.  They were perfect in our eggplant curry last night…

And finally, a new cartoon resides on our fridge, taken from today’s Sun Herald…

Any exciting happenings at your place last weekend?

In my kitchen…

…are colanders of crabapples, picked when we visited Pete’s Uncle Bob and Aunt Robin in Mudgee.  The boys stood on the tray of Uncle Bobby’s ute (truck) to pick them from the old tree in the front yard…

Pete turned the fruit into eight jars of delicious crabapple jelly

In my kitchen…

…are baskets of Anarel Garlic and homegrown onions.  We’re not particularly adept at growing onions, but it was nice to find a few in the garden…

In my kitchen…

…are new kitchen gadgets.  Last year I killed my mini food processor and Pete destroyed my handheld blender.  I replaced both with bright orange Cuisinart…

In my kitchen…

…is a basket of miniature toys that Small Girl and Little T play with when they come to visit.  It will keep them content and sitting at the dining room table for an hour, which is long enough for the grown-ups to have a cup of tea and a chat…

In my kitchen…

…are these gorgeous Cambodian bamboo bowls that Pete’s sister Katey gave me for Christmas.  Isn’t it just the most beautiful shade of red?

In my kitchen…

…are two large rectangular pizza stones.  I’ve searched for these for a long time, and was very excited to come across them at Victoria’s Basement

They fit neatly side by side in my 90cm free-standing Smeg oven, and provide a large continuous baking surface (they’re both the same size, please excuse the fish-eye effect in the photo)…

In my kitchen…

…are paper liners which fit my loaf tins perfectly.  I also found these at Victoria’s Basement and they were relatively inexpensive ($6 for 40)…

They made the latest batch of tiger cakes just that little bit easier…
