In My Kitchen May (and April) 2017

I have missed a couple IMK link ups, and have missed visiting my blogging friends too. Spring is very slow to arrive and my kitchen inspiration has been lacking, almost non-existent. 

There hasn’t been too much excitement around here. 

If you check out our Instagram @cookswithevie you will have seen what we have been up to. 

Here are a few things that have been in our kitchen while we have been AWOL from blogging.

Evie turned 9! This was the at home cake and we had emoji cupcakes at her party with friends.



We made this crepe cake, which I still have to post on the blog, and will do that soon.


We dyed Easter eggs


Made this delicious Thai crunch salad


Lays smile bag


I did post this recipe! It is on the blog.An antipasto snackPan fried gnocchi pomodoroChickpea avocado sandwich with cilantro sprouts We made maple pecan granolaEvie made cupcakes, she is not light handed when it comes to sprinkles!Maybe there was a little more going on in my kitchen than I thought. 

In My Kitchen monthly theme is now hosted by Sherry at sherryspickings.blogspott.ie.  So if you would like to know what’s cooking or see some kitchen treasures, head over to Sherry’s blog and check out all the other IMK participants.

In My Kitchen February 2017

Ok, totally failed on my New Years resolution to get back to blogging regularly. It is just so busy with work and other commitments that I just have nothing left.  I am determine to get the IMK post up this month!

Here are a few things that have been in my kitchen this month.

Salmon in white wine and dill sauce, delicious 

My favourite cheese, soft creamy and so good. Wonderful served with dried figs. It is a Quebec cheese and I like supporting Canadian and local producers.

It was my Mom’s birthday and we had this chocolate raspberry cake.

Evie made a lego hotdog truck


A bottle of wine

We have been eating lots of these Sweeties, a grapefruit & pomelo cross. They are very sweet and juicy.

Evie made me this coaster for my morning coffee.
We are joining Liz at www.bizzylizzysgoodthings for the IMK link up. If you would like to join post before February 10th, link back to her site and let her know you have posted.

In My Kitchen December 

It is December!! How did that happen? I completely missed the November meet up.  Can you believe that our next IMK will be in 2017?!

Here are a few things that have been in our kitchen.

We had Canadian Thanksgiving back in October so I used up the turkey bones and make stock in the slow cooker. It is now in the freezer to be used for soup later.

Teeny tiny panettone. Seriously the size of a muffin.


I had started my first sourdough starter….then it died😩 I will try again later.


Made this white bean and garlic soup, it was delicious 


Panda bun


Green Thai curry

Really cute mushrooms 
And a pump lid for a mason jar that now holds my dish washing liquid 


It works great

  • If you would like to join IMK post by December 10th and let Liz know from bizzylizzysgoodthings who is now hosting the “In My Kitchen” monthly virtual meet up. 

IN MY KITCHEN OCTOBER 2016

I have been missing the IMK monthly link up, but I have found out through the blogging network that Lizzy from bizzylizzysgoodthings is now hosting the “In My Kitchen” monthly virtual meet up. Thank you so much Lizzy!

Today was Thanksgiving in Canada so I am writing this while being almost in a Turkey 🦃 coma!

In my October kitchen…

Fall themed cakelettes, made with spice cake


A few Russian chocolates that my husband picked up when passing a little Russian store.

Cranberry coffee cake

Some art made for me, you would think I liked coffee!

Fancy cocktail gummies, the pink gummy bears were the best, bubbly bears

Cheese crackers for lunchbox snacks

Delicious buttermilk pie
There was turkey dinner with pumpkin pie today as well but I didn’t get any pictures. Right now my slow cooker is going with some vegetables, herbs and the carcass, making bone broth for future soup.

Thank you again Lizzy for hosting IMK.

In My Kitchen September 2016

Welcome back IMK friends!  The IMK hiatus is over and we are back sharing what is going on in our kitchens. Summer is over, school is back in and schedules are busier than ever. Here are a few things that we have in our kitchen.

Olive oils and balsamic vinegars that we picked up while on vacation.

A new locally made maple and birch cutting board.

All of this pottery was made by Evie in her pottery camp, a jar,some little pinch pots and an owl in a nest.


My friend brought me this pie mound from a trip to England

We went apple picking and got cider and warm apple cider donuts as well.
Some of the apples was made into apple sauce, may get us through winter

And made some dill pickle relish to use on burgers.

Looking forward to visiting some of your kitchens.

Just a quick peek this month.  Evie has been busy in the kitchen, I have been busy with other things.  She is crazy about the book Eggs Over Evie and has made a few recipes that are featured in the book.  She made her first omelette!

IN MY KITCHEN MAY 2016

Spring is finally here, it took forever, but I have one lonely tulip in the back garden and the rhubarb is up with two small leaves!  That is very exciting.

It has been extremely busy since my last IMK post, we had an 8th birthday party and first Communion along with a few other happenings.  Needless to say not too much in the kitchen this month just surviving!

Here is a little peek:
