Since this is my very first “In My Kitchen”, I though I would show you my kitchen! Thanks toΒ Fig Jam and Lime CordialΒ for this great idea. My KitchenΒ is very small as it is a granny flat, but it does the job and when mum pops in to visit she is always exclaiming how great it smells in my flat!

In My Kitchen is a book shelf, it only has cook books in it and as you can see can’t hold any more, so I have a problem πŸ™ don’t buy any more recipes books (never going to happen) or get another book shelf somewhere else!

In My Kitchen is my mortal and pestle, I can’t live without it. Don’t get me wrong I love my Thermomix and it is amazing, but sometimes I just like to kick it old school and use a bit of elbow grease.

In My Kitchen is my frying pan. I bought this frying pan over 15 years ago and it cost my $180. It could possible be the best $180 I have ever spent. It has cooking thousands of meals and the best thing about it is that it leaves the little caramelised bits on the bottom of the pan to make wonderful gravies and sauces. It also has the possibility of doubling as a weapon (like in Tangled) but you would also need to lift it with two hands like my mortar and pestle.

Frying Pan, everyone needs a really good one that isn’t non – stick.

In My Kitchen is my pantry. I wish it was bigger, but I think every cook wishes that they had a bigger pantry. It is generally always organised and I know exactly where everything is. As you can see I am a little OCD when it comes to my pantry, but the Tupperware helps with that little organisational bug I have, and I have always been a fan of things lined up in a row… e.g. BV’s (that is backing vocalist for those not in the know)

In My Kitchen is my Murray River Pink Salt and bamboo container. I love Murray River Pink SaltΒ as it adds an extra salt flavour dimension to dishes without being too salty. I know that sounds funny, but I just love working with this salt and I’m so familiar with how it flavours that I can just dive into this wonderful bamboo container always seemingΒ to add just the right amount!

In My Kitchen is Tea. T2 Organic English Breakfast Tea to be exact! I don’t think that a kitchen is a kitchen without a pot of tea… I also love my coffee seeΒ HEREΒ andΒ HEREΒ for those details, but a good cup of tea is a thing to behold and this is my favourite!

Then finally In My Kitchen is not a lot of space. I thought that I would include a picture of my little kitchen, where all the magic happens πŸ™‚ Where I am standing is the oven and grill and the bookshelf with all my cookbooks on it is just to the right and my fridge is just to the left.

So there you have it, my very first In My Kitchen. I hope you liked it and I hope you like all the yummy things that come out of it!

Enjoy Irresponsibly!
