Three years I’ve been blogging about my kitchen adventures. For some reason today I realised I’d never written about my good friend Tania’s cookbook! It’s called Flavours of Portugal and is written in both English and Portuguese. The book is a collection of memories, history and traditional recipes written and designed by Tania. And of course she took all the photos. So proud of you Tania!
Baked Explorations is just as beautiful as the first Baked book. I wish every recipe had a photo though – I’m much more likely to make a recipe when I’m seduced by a picture of the final result.
My birthday was last Sunday – I turned 29. Hubby ordered me a delicious Chocolate Orange Brulee cake from Patisserie New York in Caringbah, NSW. (That’s my Dad’s hand in the background!)
Thank you to Leonie and Lily for making me cupcakes and to Eve for my brownie cake.
My Nan gave me this cute Kikki.K My Baking binder. Thanks Nanna!
New cookbook arrived! From The Book Depository via Booko. Free delivery, $22AUD. Love Booko! Love this cookbook. Inside it you’ll find pumpkin whoopie pies and pumpkin chocolate chip loaf recipes.
This book made its way into my suitcase and travelled all the way home with me from Virginia, USA. I paid $20US for it. It retails here in Australia from $30 to $50. For the best price in Australia check out Booko.
Yesterday was Father’s Day here in the land down under and my dad requested some “nice” cupcakes. I chose to bake peanut butter cupcakes from the Cupcakes! book I received for Christmas from my mother-in-law. I can’t tell you how these cupcakes taste – I’m recovering from the flu and my sense of taste is still AWOL. Hubby says they are “awesome” and Auntie says they are “divine” so it looks like a thumbs up on these cupcakes. I’m hoping I will be able to taste one soon!
A note about this cookbook – there are very few pictures in it! Seems odd for a cupcake cookbook not to be filled to the brim with cupcakey imagery.
Here’s my new toy, a binder to keep recipes in. It’s extra special cos it’s red to match my kitchen. Buy yours from kikki.K
