Five years ago (good lord where does the time go) I posted a recipe for Whole Spelt Pie Crust. After making said crust for every year since I figured it was high time for a bit of an update. Over time, I've worked out that coconut oil is better for this crust when it's a touch firmer, so there's a bit of extra detail about how to get it right when it's hot in your kitchen. I've found adding some extra water is better too -- and I've refined the refrigerate and roll times because … [Read more...]

Who knew adding veggies to your breakfast bowl could be such a shocking (SHOCKING!) idea? Apparently the concept is confronting and unusual and unexpected, yet -- as someone who adds veggies to porridge more days than not -- I find the reaction to the idea as shocking and unexpected as the idea itself. It is however all a matter of packaging (isn't everything?). I recently shot some photos and videos for the #mybrekkiebowl campaign, and as part of the press release I was quoted … [Read more...]
I'm simply not sure what keeps happening to the days these days. It seems every time I turn around another month (or middle of the month or end of the month) is upon us and it makes me twitch. As such it's once again been a while between In My Kitchen posts but I'm here now so lets get going shall we? As per usual this is a collection of things seen over on Instagram — reasonably edited, grouped in loosely interpreted categories and appearing no particular order. The Day Job Ok, I do know … [Read more...]
I know, I know, I don't post anything for weeks then here I am, BAM, with two posts in one day. However as it happened, I had this one all ready to go when I decided that I simply must do a post on brining -- including ratios if your turkey isn't the size of a small child -- before sharing the recipe for the turkey that was brined. Of course, as all things do these days, it took a bit longer than planned. And so we return to our regularly scheduled programming, joining the story a few … [Read more...]
Well, well, well it's been a while between In My Kitchen posts now hasn't it. But I'm back (from the holidays that fed Instagram until it had to put on elastic waist pants, yet neglected proper posts until even the tumbleweeds lost interest) with an overflowing batch of three months worth of IMK goodies. As per usual this is a collection of things seen over on Instagram — reasonably edited, grouped in loosely interpreted categories and appearing no particular order. You've totally missed … [Read more...]
J: can you please write a post about pumpkin granola for me? R: granola, it's good J: yeah, need a bit more than that R: ... J: ... R: I don't really like granola J: I'm not talking to you anymore. The pumpkin obsession continues, this time in the form of granola -- because while I'm perfectly fine with eating pie for breakfast some people may feel granola is more appropriate. I'd call those people silly but to each their own. At this point I should probably try to draw a … [Read more...]
It’s once again time for In My Kitchen and as per usual this is a collection of things from the past month — as seen over on Instagram — in loosely interpreted categories and no particular order, although full of holiday cheer. As always I’m linking up with Celia for IMK. ------ Kitchen Shenanigans & Other People's Food I used to make five kinds of cookies each Christmas -- but while a combination of working right up to the holidays and stifling summer heat has seen it drop over the … [Read more...]
