I love being in my kitchen


One of my enjoyable pastimes, especially on the weekends is to spend time in my kitchen. Whether it's preparing meals for family or entertaining, baking up a storm to stock the freezer, baking goodies to take down to our parents in Adelaide or whipping up some scones or something sweet for an impromptu coffee with friends, I find it relaxing and enjoy having home baked goods to share.

Here are a few shots of what has been produced over the past couple of weeks (when I remembered to take a photo!).

Cake and slices to fill the freezer
A few of the tradies working on our back entertaining area, got lucky with some scones for morning tea one Saturday morning!
Coffee Mousse for a dinner with friends
Always a favourite...sausage rolls.

Even though I have many cookbooks, I tend to just google for recipes now and have my ipad sitting on the kitchen bench. While perusing Pintrest I came across this fabulous idea for an ipad holder...I might make it one day. The instructions are here.

We are doing a day trip to Adelaide today to catch up with family, so here is what will be going with us....some Apricot Slice for an afternoon tea and in the blue lidded container is Chocolate Crackles with marshmallows, my Father-in-law's favourite!

Me too, I love to bake goodies! We are off to Adelaide too for Fathers Day, up today, back tomorrow. I'm making choc chip cookies for my girls before we go.

Later in the week we are off to the Flinders Ranges so I 'need' to make Anzacs and Lazy Lady Slice. Have you ever tried LL slice? Its so easy and delicious...

Enjoy your weekend!

I always try to have some home baked goods for my man and munchkins to munch on. There's nothing like a quite cuppa and cake to rejuvenate the soul. I still have my fave recipes that are splotched and splattered but I am starting to use the iPad more also. I love the holder idea. Must get my man to make one for me. Thanks for the link. xx

I always find it hard to remember to photograph my baking and cooking, sometimes it is half eaten by the time I remember. I could eat some Coffee Mousse and those scones right now, yum.
