it is such a pleasure to do your post – I was really lucky with my kitchen gifts this year! Have a great day 🙂
Cool – what wonderful pressies you got! After reading one of your previous posts, I bought the Baked and Delicious – have got as far as washing the muffin cases and passed the magazine onto my Mom to read – REALLY want to get back into the kitchen soon.
Have a happy week.
I have not even washed the muffin cases yet! Hope you get baking soon 🙂
Nice!!! I bought the Baked and Delicious after reading yourreview and I love the silicone cupcake holders and @ R29.95 it was a bargain,but i don’t think I will buy the mag @ R69.95?! Enjoy the week!
I am not sure if I will get future issues either Pink 🙂
At last I have caught up! Enjoy the long weekend!!

Thank you Juliana. May your week be full of sunshine 🙂
Happy Birthday! What a wonderful lot of goodies in your kitchen.
I was truly blessed this year! Thanks for the wishes 🙂
I cannot seem to understand your infinity table, what is that for if I may ask?
it is to take photographs with a seamless background 🙂
What wonderful things in your kitchen this month. I am seriously thinking of getting that new magazine.
I so love going around your kitchen and your blogs. xx hugs for a wonderful year ahead xx
thanks so much! The magazine has some great bargains if you subscribe 🙂
Oh, Tandy! How many presents!!!! I just can’t understand why I never receive cooking presents for my b-day… You are sooooo lucky!! 🙂
Thanks Rita – I usually tell people what to buy me 🙂
Wow! Some lovely gifts, thanks for sharing.
I was truly spoiled this year 🙂
What lovely gifts!!! How do get them to listen? I always tell everybody what I want and they end up buying me other things…lol.
I make myself very clear – only one person who asked did not listen 🙂
You did hit the jackpot in kitchen goodies this year – Happy Birthday!
I try to celebrate for the whole month of my birthday!
Your olive oil looks really interesting, is it from South Africa ?
it is from South Africa – the olive trees originated from Morgenster in Somerset West 🙂
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.
HI Choclette – an infinity table is used to take seamless background photographs 🙂
