The lovely Celia, who blogs over at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, has a monthly round up of what is in our kitchens – you can join in too by clicking the link to her blog and seeing how it is done. Here is my In My Kitchen March 2012 round up.
In my fridge in February was a packet of beetroot, left over from the cake I baked
In my fridge is a small packet of yeast – and look how cheap it was (we need to spend R7 to get US$1, R10 to get €1 and R8 to get AUS$1)
On my fridge is a personalized badge from my favourite online shop
In my kitchen is this lovely gift box I got when we went to the opening of Liam Tomlin Food at Leopard’s Leap.
The box came with a recipe card for mushroom risotto but my friend Erica tells me my recipe is great, so I will think of another risotto to make with the ingredients.
In my kitchen is a beautiful prop from Cindy – she gave me this lovely gift, and I have used it already to serve David’s lunch in.
Also in my kitchen is this wonderful tea mug – I make myself a floral tea with ginger every afternoon, and this way I don’t have to worry about the flowers ending up being swallowed. This is another gift from Cindy and I think of her everyday when I sit down with my afternoon cuppa.
Wishing you all a fantastic March 🙂

That is so awesome that you can get fresh yeast from PnP. We battle to get it, so we buy it directly from our local little bakery. Making bread with fresh yeast vs dried yeast has such a vast difference. The teacup is beautiful!
I was told that you can just ask at the bakery counter and they will sell it to you! I am going to start playing around with it soon 🙂
I just love that tea mug Tandy 🙂
thanks Hope, me too 🙂
I’ve never used fresh yeast, do you get better results? Nice mugs.
I used it for batter and it made a difference with that. I am going to try it with bread soon and I will let you know 🙂
I LOVE that mug and spoon. And looking at your fridge, reminds me that I need to do go food shopping tomorrow lol. Too lazy to do it today. Wonderful post
have fun shopping Kay – I am heading for the shops today 🙂
Am trying to work out the price of your yeast – was that nearly 4 rand so 40 euros? No, have just checked on a currency convertor and its 40c – phew, I was going to fly over with a packet of yeast for you! Love the tin mug and the cup for your tea, very nice indeed
ha ha, I got the conversion the wrong way around! Thanks for pointing that out for me – I should not blog before coffee! I convert a lot of things in my head to € as I know how much we spend on things when we are travelling! However, you can still fly over 🙂
I always love getting a peak in other people’s kitchens! You’ve got a lot of great stuff and a lot of nice gifts from Cindy 🙂
thanks so much Katherine 🙂
I must say that your fridge is so neat and ordered! Mine always stuffed to the brim and looks like it is bursting! 😀
I am a bit OCD about the fridge – and my pantry cupboard 🙂
Lovely things in your kitchen. I remember my mom baking bread with fresh yeast. it was always so delicious.
I am going to give it a try as soon as I find a recipe I want to try 🙂
I’m rather taken with that mug and spoon. It’s given me a very good idea for where to put my cooking-stirring-spoon that usually rests in a mucky mess on a dish next to the cooker. 😀
thanks, I may ‘steal’ the idea from you 🙂
You provide a weekly reminder that my fridge needs cleaning. Also, that’s my kind of gift box.
I could come over and help ….
I was just thinking that I needed to clean my fridge out, thanks for the reminder 😉
Offer to Greg extended to you as well …
my first loaf made with yeasr (and many good things) was so heavy no one would eat it, and even the birds scorned it!
Such lovely goodies again this month Tandy and I too got one of those mugs as a gift.
I saw that, and I saw Cindy’s comment, so I knew what I was getting before she arrived at me 🙂
I like your Chinese Tea mug, so pretty!
Thanks Claire – it is so wonderful to use as well 🙂
I love the tea mug – It is beautiful!!! I am missing you all and will try to catch up soon!!
so nice to see you here! I have been missing you 🙂
Oh, I love working with fresh yeast, but it’s not that easy to get hold of nowadays. My mother always used it and taught me how to best use it. Love the cup and spoon, it is enamelled? Thank you for sharing your kitchen. May March bring many good things your way!
Thanks Lizzy! The cup is enameled. I am so looking forward to working with my fresh yeast. Have a great day 🙂
Tandy, thanks for playing, I love seeing what’s in your kitchen! That risotto pack looked wonderful – I try to resist, but I’m such a sucker for all-in-one boxes, especially when they’re so beautifully presented. Your yeast is really cheap indeed (less than Aus 50c!), and Cindy is an absolute sweetheart, isn’t she? 🙂
I am so glad you prompted these posts as I love sharing 🙂 Cindy is a darling friend indeed 🙂
I enjoy your pictures of your very clean and organized refrigerator- mine is always filled with so much STUFF- that yours gives me a moment of pleasure to observe. 🙂
Your cups are very pretty and all the nicer since they are gifts. Most of my favorite cups are gifts.
I rarely buy them (or teapots) for myself because I would have too many to deal with.
And your boxed set and food gifts are impressive- as well as the fresh yeast. Food challenges and keeps you busy when you receive ingredients that make you stretch out of your recipe cache!
thanks for the visit Heidi – I am a bit obsessive over my fridge 🙂
Love the beautiful mugs,esp the one with wooden spoon
The wooden spoon is wonderful 🙂
These mugs look beautiful 😀 – I adore the chinese style mug!

my pleasure, I look forward to my visits 🙂
Tandy, You have the most tidy fridge and cupboards I have ever seen. They look like a a pic from a magazine shoot. Last time you wrote about your cupboards, it prompted me to have a big clean out – may take the same inspiration and see what is lurking about my in the back of my fridge 🙂
thanks so much! Hope you have fun clearing out your fridge 🙂
