In spite of its size and my grumbles, this cooking space has served us well over the years and I have come to appreciate its individuality. I made this short video about of my eclectic kitchen about 3 months ago. Since then I have had to remove some of the decour. The food related artwork, as well as the dangling things, such as chilli lights that may look messy to potential home buyers, but for me they have made the kitchen quirky and personal.
Here are some recipes from my kitchen in 2011. Enjoy.
Of course, I have to begin with these Welsh Red Dragon Chilli Shortbread.
February - A Scottish recipe that I will always keep close to me - Potato Scones.
April - Wild Garlic Oatcakes
May - A new challenge for me - making Banoffee Curd and White Chocolate Roulade
June - Radish Leaf and Root Tart.
July - Savoury Seitan Faux Roast 'Meat' (vegan)
August - Plum and Almond Tart with Plum Syrup
September - Creamy Cabbage Pie - Perfect for those rainy Scottish days!!!
October - Another new technique to me - Sweet Potato Wontons Stickers with Sweet Chilli Sauce - absolutely delicious.
November - Beetroot and Gingerbread Muffins
Oh I should also mention, that I will not be returning back to blustery gale force windy Scotland with D later in the week. I had applied for a job in Wales and guess what I have an interview next week. Sounds promising and it may be a welcome start to the new year, so I have made the decision to stay behind. First for the interview, second for the outcome. If all goes well, then it will be 'ready set go' for moving, if not...well I will blog about that later. Anyway, whatever happens, You will have to forgive me in advance as there may be very little in the way of proper foodie (and growing) blogging until mid to late February. So instead I thought that I would begin sharing with you some things from my kitchen - starting of course with the kitchen itself.
