In My Kitchen June 2015

Cherry Cake-In My Kitchen June 2015Oh my… already half way into the year… is it just me or are the months flying by and now, time for another In My Kitchen post with lovely Celia and company. Managed to salvage a few slices of this homemade cherry cake for a quick photo before it disappeared completely… we love old-fashioned homely cakes with cups of tea and coffee in our home.  Continue reading “In My Kitchen June 2015”

In My Kitchen December 2014

In My Kitchen Blueberry MuffinsThe year is drawing to a close and of course this will be my last In My Kitchen post for 2014, hopefully I will have lots of kitchen treasures to show you next year. Had these pretty plain blue and polka dot cupcake/muffin liners in my kitchen cupboard for ages and thought these blueberry muffins would look good in them. Dusted over a little powdered sugar and some very sparkly edible glitter a friend had given me. Actually, the photograph does not do justice to the sparkle. The blue cupcake decorating turntable… well I guess I needed one of those.
Lemons and Bay Leaf Plant-3These are our amazing lemons (green ones) from our lemon tree, and already hoping for a bigger quantity next year. I was waiting for the lemons to turn more of a yellow color but a few showed signs of being eaten by bugs and starting to rot, so decided to pick them from the tree. Wanting the home-grown lemons to last longer, decided to preserve six of the lemons …. which have now decided to turn yellow! I love using fresh bay leaves in my kitchen and keep a plant near a window. I tried keeping a bay leaf plant outside, it struggled and eventually died. The bay leaf plant has grown a little bigger and came all the way from Ireland in my suitcase (without the soil), did wonder if it would survive… and it has 🙂

Cupcake Baking Tin-Cupcake Liners-0593In my kitchen I have a favorite heavy-duty baking tin for cupcakes, which I also use for baking smaller muffins in. When out shopping and spot nice cupcake/muffin liners I usual buy some, handy to have in your store cupboard.

Fruit and Vegetable Juice-0340

A few times a week we have fresh juice and as our weather is so lovely at the moment, we sit outside and enjoy the morning sunshine. Carrot, apple and celery… not a bad way to start the day.

Fish_Maid-9825This was our school of fish for lunch before hubby pan-fried them. Maid is a seasonal local fish and one of our favourite, very oily with a thick skin, absolutely delicious and with a squeeze of lemon, so tasty.

Looking forward to continuing the In My Kitchen Theme and join our lovely host Celia from Fig Jam and Lime Cordial and other blogger from around the world in 2015, all showcasing their kitchen treasures.
