The month of April has been a disjointed one with Easter and Anzac long weekends back to back. As such my kitchen has been missing me a little but I’ve still got some yummy treats to share with you all for May.
First up in my kitchen is a massive stash of handmade Turkish Delight that I made as part of a dare from Lady Red Specs and as part of our cookbook book club, The Cookbook Guru. There is still room for improvement but it is a much more successful version that my first attempt. Currently I’m trying to dry it so that it will take the cornflour and icing sugar dusting without it melting. Any idea’s for this would be most welcome.
In my kitchen is a delicious bottle of garlic olive oil that a girlfriend visiting from Melbourne gave to us. I love drizzling this onto roast vegetables.
In my kitchen is another platter that I found buried on a back shelf at target…a great bargain and fabulous for serving lots of different dishes like this Layered Vegetable and Haloumi Salad.
In my kitchen is a pile of cookbooks I borrowed from the library on a whim. Some have been wonderful treasures that I would love to own, others pleasant to look through and I’m okay with handing back.
I think soon I may have to say In My Kitchen Library as yes, there are more books in my kitchen as I still have a large number of recipes that I want to try from Claudia Roden’s Book of Middle Eastern Food that we focussed on in April as part of The Cookbook Guru. Yup all those blue tags are recipes that I’m looking forward to making. If you haven’t already make sure you check out the beautiful food our members contributed from this book.
And finally in my kitchen this month is a mess….time to get in there and create some order so that I can go back to creating delicious meals and scrumptious treats.
Thank you to Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for creating and hosting this wonderful kitchen round up every month. If you loved seeing some of the things in my kitchen then make sure you check out all the wonderful posts offered by other foodies from all around the world.
Have a wonderful May Everyone!
