IMK July has rolled around quicker than ever. The IMK series is brought to you by Celia, of Fig Jam and Lime Cordial. Pop over to her blog, grab a cuppa, and have a read of the IMK posts from all over the world.
Canberra is right in the grip of winter, so its time for porridge for breakfasts, slow cooked casseroles, and baked apples.
In my kitchen this month... is a catch up post showing the before and after photos of the new kitchen in my investment house. Its amazing to see just how much usuable space there was.
In my kitchen... is my nod to Bacon week, which was observed between 21-27 June 2015. Seen here are my bacon nests, fashioned from award winning Pialligo Estate streaky bacon strips curled into muffin tin slots and baked to hold their shaped. Filled with creamy, slow cooked scrambled eggs.
In my kitchen... are walnuts. So fresh, and versatile.
In my kitchen... are energy balls. Walnuts blitzed up with dates (and a handful of pinenuts for good measure) rolled in crushed walnuts, and coconut. I was inspired by this recipe.
This month, I went to the Cake Bake and Sweets Show held in Sydney. All manner of new products, sweet stalls, baked goodies, and celebrities were there, as well as cake decorating classes, and cooking demonstrations. My finds were:
A new range of sugars from all over the world
All things vanilla
Flavoured fudge, and
A book on finding balance with food and wine pairings, signed by the author Lyndey Milan.
So friends, what's happening in your kitchen this month? Drop me a line, I'd love to hear from you. Cheers, Kirsty xx
