In My Kitchen – April 2017

Well, I didn’t quite make last month but I am excited to share my kitchen with you this month, although it isn’t hugely exciting. Can you believe Easter is only a week away? How did that happen? This time, I know the answer – I’ve had solid work since the end of January. Which is great! Even better, I’ve been cooking and experimenting a little more, thanks to doing Michael Moseley’s 8 week Blood Sugar Diet. Admittedly, not everything is Instagram worthy, nevermind actually sharing the recipe! Anyhoo on to what’s in my kitchen: In my kitchen is this Microplane Spiral Cutter. My sister has a Microplane grater which I love to use at her house so this really caught my eye. I’ve experimented a little but haven’t made anything at all interesting so far. I just love making spirals. I got a gift voucher at Christmas for one of the big departments stores in Dublin and so far this is what I’ve both. I’ve a bit left on the voucher and I hope to …

In My Kitchen – February 2017

Happy New Year, everyone! 2017 crept up incredibly fast and the 10th February even faster! The last few weeks of 2016 I spent with my sister’s family helping out as she’s been a wee bit under the weather. I’m getting lots of nieces and nephew time. So, how was everyone’s Christmas? Unlike last Christmas I didn’t get many food related items. In fact, besides chocolate, the only food related item I got was a gift of lunch at the prestigious Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin. Which, in fairness, is a pretty epic present. I haven’t decided who to bring with me and when to go. Hopefully in the spring, though! My actually Christmas presents included Harry Potter themed pyjamas (these along with the Shelbourne may have won Christmas for me). My squeals of delight were all that my sister who gave it to me desired. For my birthday she also gave me HP related Christmas decorations, a paper craft, a reading lamp for bed that you wear around your neck. This is so handy for me as …

In My Kitchen – November 2016

It’s so long since I’ve participated with In My Kitchen. The last few months have been hectic – since my last post my family had another loss in my Grandma, also Mary Ann, who passed away on Easter Sunday, age 95. I finished and passed my CELTA course (yay!) and then started working and adjusting to life as an employee, after almost a year away from teaching, which was harder than I expected. I taught on and off for 4 months and I am now job hunting again. Once I finally adjusted to life as a teacher again, I got back in the kitchen and have been back at it a bit more consistently since the end of September.  It’s been great but slow going. First up in my kitchen is a bowl I made a couple of years ago that is currently housing our eggs. I did a wood turning class about 5 years ago and it was one of the most fun classes I have ever taken. If I get a job again, …

It’s the beginning of February which can mean only one thing: it’s In My Kitchen time!

If you are interested in joining, please follow the instructions from Maureen available on her February 2016 post linked above and make sure your entry is in by the 10th of the month. As mentioned above, I have had a busy January. First up, were my new years resolutions that I so far have kept up with: I began with a baseline of 10,000 steps and everyday I add 100 more. I am now 14,000+ per day and quite frequently I over-achieve my goal. So in my …

In my kitchen are some rather wonderful Christmas presents. From my mom and dad, I received a zoo inspired cupcake set:
