In My Kitchen - June 2015


It's time for another round of the very cool monthly happening called "In My Kitchen" run by Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial. I can't believe it's already been a year since joining in the fun!

So here we go....

This Month in my Kitchen...

Garden Buddha among the Japanese Irises




May was a hot month, possibly the harbinger of an even hotter summer! June started off wet, rainy, and quite cold....but quickly decided to change to hot and humid. 




We had a lovely Memorial Day BBQ with family and friends. Everyone was quite impressed with our gardening skills, looking forward to gifts of fresh produce throughout the summer. One of our Friends noticed the amount of wild mushrooms growing in our yard, and thought it would be Hil-ar-i-ous to gift me a mushroom farm growing kit. 
*If you don't know already, I work with fungi so as far as I'm concerned eating it, is a no-go. Kishore, however, loves them, but don't worry he doesn't go without... Mom always gives him an extra serving when she makes them for dinner.*


The Kitchen Garden is growing at full steam and we are slowly reaping the rewards. 




Strawberries, Kohlrabi, Collards, and Broccoli.


Some new kitchen gadgets to play with...
Bee's Wrap - great for covering bowls & keeping the insects away. Enameled Oven Pan to replace a cracked one, High Temp Oven Mitt, Acacia Wood bowls trimmed in Copper, New Nesting Serving Utensils, and a Dough Whisk - great for stirring but not over mixing.


Sliced and dried some pineapple slices for snacking in a new acacia wood bowl with stainless steel trim.


Tandoori Cauliflower w/ Spicy Green Chutney & Naan. 
Recipe coming soon...



 Please make sure you stop in and take a glance at everyone else's kitchens!

So tell me...What's happening in your kitchen this month?

  2. Emily, your garden and produce are so vibrant! Those purple irises really set off that beautiful carving... a very tranquil spot. I also like those acacia bowls and your newly acquired kitchen goodies assortment.

    1. Thanks Kim! Our garden has become our rest spot, a nice quiet place to relax. I'm loving the dough whisk, it's perfect for aerating and mixing sourdough starter.

    1. Hi Ella, I thought the same thing initially but I do like it a lot. It is very good at aerating dough and incorporating nuts/fruit/ seeds rather evenly throughout. I say go for it! :) Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Always lovely to take a peek in your kitchen. Your kitchen garden is certainly rewarding you slowly but surely. The nestling serving utensils are interesting and quite different.
