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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
These are spicy molasses cookies
Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes
Chocolate Chip Pecan Coconut Cookies (made by Evie)
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:
The annual funfetti cake for the party, you can get the recipe here, Sally has two cookbooks now!
Bags of cotton candy for the carnival birthday party.
After school surprises on her actual birthday.
A couple of deserts from the Italian bakery.
I hope you enjoyed your visit and I hope you come back soon. If you’d like to write an In My Kitchen post, please do so by the 10th May and send your link to Maureen at The Orgasmic Chef. Thanks for hosting Maureen!
