My post this month for “In My Kitchen“, a monthly blogging party organized by Celia from the blog Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, is going to be a short one.
I’m not in my kitchen as we are vacationing in Key West with family. I’m enjoying a week without any cooking but with much feasting on glorious fresh fish and shell-fish from the Atlantic and Gulf oceans.
Please use the link to read wonderful posts from talented cooks in kitchens around the world. It’s a fascinating glimpse into other food cultures, and seasonal cooking from both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
My brother made me this wonderful salt-cellar in his workshop and brought it as a gift. It’s made from a mix of maple, oak, cherry and walnut.
I have a few new cookbooks and have already made some wonderful dishes from each of them.
I’ve been using a mixture of seeds with many of my vegetable dishes to add extra crunch. I call it Seedy Seasoning Mix.
And lastly, I’ve discovered a trick for making a sugar-free (at least refined sugar) teriyaki sauce. The magic trick is dates; blended with garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and water.
Hello from Key West, I will be home next week and look forward to catching up with you all.
