In My Kitchen September 2015

Tomorrow I leave for Scotland but before I can even think about packing later on today, I am sharing what is new and exciting in my kitchen with all of you, and Celia from Fig Jam And Lime Cordial. I was sent Canderel with sucralose so that I could make a Coconut Banana Loaf. I will make good use of what is left of this product as I have a few cakes to make that will need frosting.

They also sent me a set of measuring cups that are sturdy and have lovely handles. These have been put into the drawer for every day use, replacing the ones I bought about a year ago. In my new kitchen I am going to have to sort out all of these things into one drawer.

When we were at The Restaurant At Gabriëlskloof I bought some of their olive oil. It is fantastic and I will buy the 2l one next time we visit.

I was very lucky to be a guest of Good Housekeeping at their annual Celebrity Bake Stars Event. I was sent home with a huge goody bag full of edible delights. Some of them I have kept but the biscuits went to my 95 year old Mother In Law as a treat.

There were also a lot of items for the kitchen and I love the whisk! Some of the items I have already and don’t need doubles, so these have been gifted to my stepson, James.

You might recall I spoke about the Tupperware egg separator? Well, imagine my surprise when I was sent home with a huge bag of Tupperware from the same event, that included one. I have no need for more Tupperware – this is the plus side of having started a kitchen over 20 years ago, James and Carli have more use and a newer kitchen and so I have ‘swapped’ my goody bay for all the kitchen items that they have borrowed from me and not yet returned.

Together with The Ultimate Snowflake Collection recipe book, I was sent three of Snowflake’s Pre Mixes. These too were sent to James as I have run out of pantry space! This is the one shortfall of having such a small kitchen.

Disclosure: I was not asked by anyone who gave me gifts to blog about them. This post is in line with my blogging policy.

Dave and I are overseas in Scotland from the 3rd. I will be back in my office on the 16th of September and I will start replying to comments then. I won’t be able to read any blogs while we are away so please forgive my lack of visiting back. To follow along with us, click here.

  2. How lucky are you Tandy on all those amazing gifts from Good Housekeeping! Sounds like it would have been a great event! And it’s good to see everything went to a great home. I can’t go past a good olive oil either, they can make such a big difference to even the simplest salad or steak! Great #IMK post

  8. So many wonderful things in your kitchen Tandy – and so lovely that you can pass a few things on to needy people. I sometimes think that I will bake something just to pass it on – I love the feeling {although I do love eating delicious baked treats too}.

  9. I love the measuring cups, Tandy, and I bet that olive oil is delicious. How wonderful to receive all the goodies and how sweet of you to share them. Have a wonderful trip to Scotland. My daughter and I were talking about taking a trip there at some point. It’s where our ancestors are from. Enjoy your vacation!

  10. Haha, I’m having some Tupperware envy. So nice! I love Tupperware and look for it at every garage sale. But my mom is the Tupperware queen. When my parents were first married, my mom supposed our family for 2 years selling Tupperware until my dad got a good job. It’s so handy. Those measuring cups are so pretty too.
