IMG_2900Well – Happy Birthday to me… I am ONE, who would have thought that I would have made it… I have had so much fun and the IMK family has been a huge part of that… So thank you all very much for all your love and support!


Happy First Birthday to Me πŸ™‚

Early on, I wrote a post that is titled IT’S ALL ABOUT ME if you would like to read it, just click on the link. It is just a little insight into my food journey. πŸ™‚

So what has been happening in my kitchen this month you might ask?

Rosella Jam

Yes, that is about 30 of the 60 jars of Jam mum and I have made!

Anything made out of Rosella’s, no, not the birds, the flower (or Wild Hibiscus).

Rosella Jam

Yes this is just one pick!

Seriously that’s it, so much Rosella Jam, above is the picture of mum and I doing just one pick, so you can imagine, we have had so many picks!

Rosella Cordial

Rosella Cordial is really tasty with some mineral or soda water and very refreshing.

Oh and Rosella Cordial too, this is what we resorted too, because we got sick of separatingΒ the leaves from the pods. It is quiet a laborious process and we probably won’t plant so many bushes next year πŸ™‚

Rosella Jam

Also,Β I thought I would make a few jars of the Rosella (Wild Hibiscus Flower) to put in some champagne… I didn’t make too many of these as you have to carefully separate the pod for the petals and that takes longer than peeling them πŸ™‚

Rosella Jam

Long and laborious, but worth it for a few jars πŸ™‚

So like I said this is mostly what has been happening in my kitchen this month πŸ™‚ I have also become a convert to snickerdoodles, when I baked and tried a friends grandmother recipe… I’ve decide that I’m never making them again… because warm out of the oven they are deadly… I think I ate 5… So like I said, never making them again. Here is the recipe if you want to have a look. SNICKERDOODLESΒ Β but please don’t make them, you will regret it! LOL! πŸ™‚


So just a quick one this month…! Thanks for poking around my kitchen. The Rosella Jam recipe will be up soon if your interested. Don’t forget to pop over to Celia @ Fig Jam and Lime Cordial who hosts this fantastic page, to have a look at all the other wonderful IML posts this month

Enjoy Irresponsibly!
