I do however have something to share that I was very pleased with. I picked up these gorgeous plates from a charity shop a little while back.
These are a collection from Villeroy & Boch called 'Children of the World'. A quick internet search showed me that there are 12 of them, but I am content with what I have.
I found some energy to make some Pistachio cakes over the weekend.
The Pistachio Cake recipe comes from Dina Begum's Brick Lane Cookbook: Food From Everywhere. The little cakes were dense and flavourful and were absolutely delightful to eat. D loved them. They were meant to get a glaze, but I decided to give that a miss.
By the way, I have been to Brick Lane - see here - it was mostly about the graffiti art.
Anyway, I am sharing this simple blog post with Sherry's Pickings for the In My Kitchen series, I look forward to seeing what you have lurking in your kitchen cupboards or to see whats new.
