In My Kitchen – March 2016

My chubby body had a chance to take a little rest from the kitchen for two weeks. It’s not that I liked it or I haven’t planned anything to cook or bake, but I missed some ingredients a few times and so lazy to go out. So I thought that was my body’s way to take things slow. Ahh, it’s aΒ good thing when you have some saved recipes to blog about. πŸ˜€

Anyways, I am here to share with you my little stuffs for this month’s IMK post. But before that, I want to thank Maureen @ The Orgasmic Chef for hosting IMK. ❀

In my kitchen…

…is a medium sized sauté pan.Β It’s been a long time since I wanted to have my own sauté pan and I am very much happy that I found one. This is not too big and not too small. Just enough. Uhm, maybe if I make Shakshuka, I can put two eggs. Yay! I am so excited to use this and make something delicious. And besides, it’s lovely to place this pan straight to the table and shoot! πŸ˜€

In my kitchen…

…is this pretty mat and uhm, something like a turner? I got the “turner” because I don’t have a plate that can hold the size of the chiffon cake. The chiffon cake is about 13″ round and my plates are smaller than that. These two makes pretty props, too. Yes?

(Can you say that my kitchen for the next months would smell aromatic?)

In my kitchen…

Last but not the least…

Let me just share with you the hot chocolate I have made from Tablea de Cacao which I posted in my last month’s IMK.

This is called ‘Tsokolate‘ – Filipino Hot Chocolate. Yum! πŸ˜€

    1. Maybe in the Middle Eastern section at your local grocery store? I hope you could find one, Liz. πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by. x

  1. Ok…you HAVE to tell me what’s a sumac! What do you usually use ut ffor? The rest of the spices are those I cannot live without. 😊 I’d love to raid your spice rack! 😜

    1. Sumac has a lemony taste. I love it together with hummus. πŸ™‚ I haven’t tried sumac other than in hummus so I will have to find out how to use it. πŸ˜€

        1. I am afraid only our friend, Wiki, could help you with that. I even searched myself for my knowledge before, but I did not fully understand what I read. πŸ˜€

  2. We lime garam masala, good luck testing it out. Your other new spices also look great. Loved the hot chocolate too, I am a bit of a hit chocolate addict!

    1. You know since when I wanted to make my ful, haha! And I don’t know why I am always delaying it. Maybe I am afraid. But I will be brave from now on. πŸ˜€

      And thank you, Elaine, for telling me that… maybe I will say my chubby face! πŸ˜›

  3. Garam Masala, Coriander and Red Chilli Powder – awesome πŸ™‚ I know how tough is it jump into a new cuisine so I really wish you enjoy these Indian spices πŸ™‚ The pan looks great and so is the mat! πŸ˜€

  4. Oh there are delightful things in your kitchen this month. That saute pan and the mat are lovely props and I look forward to seeing something tasty soon. I love sumac but I’ve never bought a container of it that large before. You’re a serious cook! πŸ™‚ Thanks heaps for being part of In My Kitchen!

    1. This is my first time to buy Sumac, too. I have tried it before and I really loved it. My brain is very busy thinking of what to make first and where to use these new spices. πŸ˜€ Thanks a lot, Maureen. x

    1. I have tried Sumac before and I loved. So I decide to get one for home. I love it with hummus, but I will see where else I can use it. The garam masala, it will be my first time to use them. Yay! πŸ˜€ Thanks, Nadia. x

Thanks for reading! Let me know your thoughts...
