WARNING: this spice blend is like Christmas fairy-dust in a jar. Seriously. Well, it is if warm spices make you think of gingerbread and mulled wine and tree decorating all other sorts of holiday festivities... On the other hand, if warm spices make you think of drinking a cocktail while sitting on a tropical island then please revise aforementioned warning to apply to your own happy spice memory. Either way, everybody wins. Working on the assumption that everyone has a happy … [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. As always I’m linking up with Celia for IMK. ------ Kitchen Shenanigans It has been a bit of a slow month (at least compared to the usual influx of stuff that seems to pass through) but there has certainly been pumpkin, lots and lots of roasted pumpkin. Mainly for pie, and then mini-pies, and … [Read more...]
It arrived on my doorstep like a gift from the heavens. An overflowing box of seasonal produce, celebrating the start of summer fruit and veg and saving me from myself. As soon as it hit the table I unpacked every piece -- and then did what any slightly OCD normal, possibly colour-obsessed, person would do... I created a rainbow of course. I didn't realise until it was all packed away again that the fennel should have been turned the other way and now that's all I see when I look at … [Read more...]
Look at me go, no posts for ages then bam, there I am in your inbox or reader or feed two days in a row. Pie will do that. Of course another Pumpkin Pie meant another pie crust (heaven forbid I double up and repeat one) and somehow pecans and oats just seemed the way to go. I should have probably called it a Pecan Oat Raw Pie Crust, but there are arguments about the raw-ness of rolled oats so no-bake was just as easy. And to be honest this crust is a bit like taking a pecan … [Read more...]
I was going to let Halloween pass by this year with nary a mention. Then the other day, after talking to a girlfriend about her over-the-top ghoulish creation, I was bitten by the trick-or-treat bug. So much as I love the crazy Halloween recipes that float across the interwebz this time of year I find myself sticking with a slightly tamer theme -- if you've been here a while you may recognise the colour combo from my Halloween Ice Cream Bars with Chocolate & Green Goo Magic Shell -- … [Read more...]
My husband has this thing about breakfast. He has to eat something that by his definition is breakfast-y, before diving into anything remotely lunch related. Even on days when we laze in bed until the clock shows double digits and don't make it to a cafe until well after mid-day, he always orders eggs or another Western-style breakfast food. In the same vein, breakfast for dinner was a difficult sell for many years too -- although these days French Toast and various egg creations appear more … [Read more...]
If you haven't noticed I'm rather prolific over on Instagram... ahem, and therefore each time I pull together a list for In My Kitchen I simply scroll back through photos shared since the last post to work out what's been going on. There is a bit of a method to the madness, even if the resulting collections appear as slightly randomly grouped items all in one place. That said my life is slightly random when put all in one place, so it fits. Anyway, it's once again time to link up with Celia … [Read more...]
