In My Kitchen February 2012

Welcome to a little tour of some of the things in my kitchen...

I recently made these free-form ratatouille tarts from Donna Hay's Simple Dinners cookbook.  They were a delicious combination of freshly picked summer vegetables wrapped in shortcrust pastry on a creamy ricotta and basil base.


The simple ingredients of bacon, cheese and tomato on buttered toast make a hearty morning smoko for my husband, Terry after a busy morning out and about on the farm.


This is my own blend of homemade muesli with plenty of nuts and organic dried fruit, served with natural yoghurt and a sweet slice of rockmelon.  This is my favourite way to start the day.


Beautiful fresh eggs from our chooks, I refuse to bake with anything less!  My willing little helpers, Annabelle and George are always happy to collect the eggs and play with the chooks.


Join in the fun, go to Celia’s blog, Fig Jam and Lime Cordial to look at what other people have in their kitchens around the world.  What is in your kitchen this month?

  4. Jane, look how lovely and clean your eggs are! Ours are all a bit muddy since it's been so wet here. All the things in your kitchen look delicious, especially that ratatouille tart. Thanks for playing along! :)

  13. Hi all
    I have been asked to bake something small to be served with every coffee purchased (in a homewares business that sells coffee cakes etc.) It would have to be inexpensive to make as it is that free little something that you recieve with your coffee and not too time consuming to make. Does anyone have any ideas?

  14. Trudy, in answer to your query... a little cafe near me gives away a little puff pastry nibble... just a small rectangle of puff pastry with a little blob of apple sauce, pinched, baked and dusted with sugar. Very tasty, tiny and more ish.
