October 2022 Showcasing In My Kitchen

I did not start off October 2022 in a good frame of mind. A few things happened that made me really consider my blogging. So, from this month, you will see a change. My IMK post will now be done on the 1st of the month, and not the first Wednesday. And I will be sharing recipes, recipe book reviews and restaurant reviews twice a week. So from posting every single Monday, Wednesday and Friday I will now be scheduling my posts for a Tuesday and Thursday. This is a big change for me, but I know it is the right one to make. So, without further ado, let’s get to what creations I shared last month.

October 2022 Recipes

I made bacon relish while reviewing a recipe book, and from that I made a bacon relish beer bread. My herring in horseradish cream was served with seeded bread rolls. During winter while cooking a lot of casseroles, I reserved all the beef fat. This was eventually rendered down so I could make a beef fat hollandaise. On the sweet side I made salted caramel pots de creme which are restaurant worthy if I say so myself. The pecan nut cake was absolutely delicious and the Welsh cakes were a perfect quick afternoon tea treat. Last, but not least, were a batch of Australian biscuits. You might recognise them as Anzac cookies but due to a whole herd of reasons, I could not call them that.

Two new things in my kitchen

I was sharing only one new thing a month, but now I am so far behind I need to play catch up. For Christmas last year Hannah gave me a bamboo spoon and new oven gloves. I kept the spoon in its packaging until Dave burnt my wooden spoon. He left the gas on with an empty frying pan on top, and the wooden spoon took the brunt of the damage. I have hung the gloves up on my butchers block and use them often. Especially when taking hot pots and pans off the gas.

This is my November submission to the #IMK series hosted by Sherry. Each month bloggers around the world gather to share what is new in their kitchens.
