In my kitchen… at the moment I am in Mum’s kitchen and with the time difference between Ireland and Bahrain, up bright and early on a very foggy morning. So… in and out of kitchens in this November’s IMK post. Before traveling to the emerald Isle, baked this sugar crusted cherry and pine nut loaf cake. We love these any time of day cakes to enjoy with our favorite cuppa.
Had a lovely box of chocolates courtesy of LVS by Leaves in my kitchen after attending their opening night. Who knew pebbles and mushroom could taste so delicious and chocolatey. Glad we have another chocoholic in the house, but I still get the blame for eating the most.
The aroma meeting your nose when freshly grinding whole spices is quite powerful, but also a reminder of how stale some of the already ground spices are in my kitchen. I only ever grind small amounts of whole spices, keeping them as fresh and aromatic as possible. This Persian spice mix is mostly used for rice dishes and in due course will share a recipe using this blend. Love that it uses rose petals too.
In Mum’s kitchen is this gorgeous blue mixing bowl/jug, kind of old-fashioned looking. Also, love this flower patterned antique plate hanging on her wall. And the cute tea-pot that sits on her window sill and proof that Ireland has some beautiful sunny mornings too.
