Renovations are ending and slowly getting back to things neglected, this blog being one of them. Always love to keep the monthly In My Kitchen post going so at least you know I’m still on this planet.
In my kitchen…
At a post wedding afternoon tea, guests came away with a cute tin filled with Halwa, a traditional Bahraini sweet. This sticky gelatinous and translucent sweet, sometimes mixed with nuts, quickly becomes very additive once you start eating it.
One way of getting a chocolate fix…a slightly sweetened delicious raw cacao and coconut milk from Mylk and More, they make all sorts of fresh nut milks, some with different flavorings. When I have time enjoy making nut milks too, particularly coconut milk and cashew milk for this delicious vegan curried cauliflower soup by Dr. Weil.
Sitting pretty on my counter worktop, a gorgeous bouquet (Singapore Flowers) for mother’s day from my lovely daughter.
Although I haven’t done much baking these past few weeks, friends have kept the sweet supplies coming with lovely chocolate caramel treats from Baby Cakes and a box of chocolates from Maya Chocolatiers.
When making homemade yoghurt, sometimes add a cup of full-fat goat milk to cows milk, the result is a yoghurt with a very mild and pleasing goat taste. We have mixed milk cheeses so why not mixed milk yoghurt. Also used a “Bolgari” starter purchased online.
A friend ask me if I could make her Kombucha, a fermented tea drink… I told her I would try, but first need to grow a “scoby”. How successful this project will be… have yet to find out. Those jars were on day one and don’t look very interesting. Do any IMK peeps make your own Kombucha… any tips to share?
Food themed magnet bookmarks for my cookbooks… never one for folding the corner pages of books… one of my pet hates.
