In My Kitchen – September 2013

In My Kitchen – September 2013

YAY, it’s officially Spring – so very exciting!   Even though we had a mild winter, anything below 25°C is cold for me, so I am super eager for the warmer weather to stick around and warm me up.

In my kitchen…

Is a batch of my current favourite cupcakes.  I never seems to go a week without baking a batch.  What a pity you don’t all live a little closer – I would bake you all a batch too. 🙂


In my kitchen…

Are 2 sets of espresso cups and saucers – sadly one of the red ones on the top left of the first pictures fell and broke when I was packing them away after taking the picture.  I have ideas of serving rich dark chocolate mousse out of them for a dinner party dessert, or possible crème brûlée.

This might seem a tad odd to you but after being in our home for 10 years, I finally had the brain wave to add another shelf to one of our glasses cupboards.   There was originally only one shelf as with the cupboard to the right (second picture).   What a difference a shelf makes.

This feels a little like déjà vu so apologies if I have shared this previously – is my strawberry scented hotty which Pete bought for me to keep me toasty when I sit and work in my office which is like a freezer in winter – great summer office though.

Is my lunch – a sweet chilli and mayo chicken wrap with avo, spring onion and crispy lettuce with a grinding of black pepper.

Is a jar of pistachio nuts.  They are Pete’s favourite after dinner snack.  I bought extra to make a pear, pistachio and chocolate cake but haven’t got around to baking it yet.
