In My Kitchen August 2011

July is my birthday month, and so there are lots of new things in my kitchen:

I received a promotional copy of Baked & Delicious and I have already made lebkuchen from the magazine.

for those of you who don’t know, we live in our garage which has been converted into a cottage. Space is limited and things have to find the best home they can!

I made some kumquat atchar from a recipe on the foodmonger’s blog

  1. I do like Celia’s In My Kitchen posts and now I’m having fun seeing what’s going on in other kitchens. You did really well for your birthday, how nice to get so many things you want. Err, what exactly is an infinity table – I couldn’t really make it out from the picture.
