Following Celia’s footsteps once more, I share with you what is going on in our kitchen this month.
Did you know that if you cut the base of celery and place it in water for a few days a new celery plant will grow from it? All you have to do is plant it in your garden. Thanks to a tip from my friend Cindy, I have my own celery experiment going on, and this baby is now outside (fingers crossed for a long, productive life!)
In My Kitchen…
Homemade pain de mie, recipe from The Bread Bible, by Rose Levy Beranbaum, perfect to spread with any of the tasty concoctions by American Spoon, from Michigan. (I don’t work for the company and have not received any freebies to evaluate and/or promote).
In My Kitchen…. A new passion, hibiscus flower tea!
I was intrigued by this post and could not rest until I got some hibiscus flowers to play with. The color of this tea is amazing… stay tuned to hear more about it.
In My Kitchen….
My newest toy, a tortilla press! Corn tortillas from scratch are infinitely better than store-bought, and a good quality press makes all the difference. A blog post about it is in the works…
and, finally… from the backyard, two cool dudes wanted to say hello and hope that you enjoyed this little tour through their favorite spot in the house!
Oscar + Buck = Double Trouble on the horizon… ;-)
