This is a very short instalment to end off the year and share with you what is new In My Kitchen In December 2014. I want to take the opportunity to wish Celia (from Fig Jam And Lime Cordial) and her family a blessed Christmas. I love these #IMK posts and I cannot wait to come back in 2015 and share more with you.
This month I have done a lot of baking. I did not post the recipe for the cupcakes that I made. They were part of a competition for Yuppiechef and I used a sponge cake recipe that was given to us, to make these cupcakes. I did not win but my effort was rewarded with a voucher and I have used that in December 2014 to get myself some new attachments for my Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer.
We received the most beautiful table gifts at the launch of La Bella Restaurant and Bistro and I have left this cheese board on our table as a permanent fixture. I love the texture of the wood! It came with a cheese knife and fork set.
I reckon I have the largest collection of Kitchen Aid attachments and I cannot stop collecting them. I already have drums for medium and coarse shredding as well as slicing and I have now added a potato grater, a drum for stripping (Julienne) and one for fine shredding. I hope to test the fine shredder on horseradish when it is next in season.
I had a 15% discount voucher for Le Creuset from the latest issue of Taste Magazine and I used it to buy an espresso mug in their new colour palm.
We have an 8 seater dining room table and I wanted 8 espresso mugs to use for desserts. I now have 8 and I cannot wait to use them.
At the Baleia Bay Wines launch we were given a wine opener and bottle stopper. I love that the wine opener has a bottle opener on it as well, as that is something most useful in our house.
I want to thank each and every one of you for taking a peek into my kitchen in December 2014. I hope that you come back next month to see what is new.
