In My Kitchen

My recent absence from my sewing machine meant more time to spend in the kitchen. I do love creating new things in there and if they are successful, the recipe wins a place in my household folder! I cannot take credit for creating the recipes unfortunately but maybe one day I will be able to come up with my own.

This was a delicious Salmon and Broccoli Pasta Bake. Very easy to make which is always a priority for me when choosing something to cook!

This Banana Cake I have made a couple of times now and does not last long. In fact I was lucky to get a picture! Great for using up those over ripe bananas that I always seem to have in my fruit bowl.

There is another girl in our household who loves being in the kitchen too. In fact she asks nearly every day to make cakes. She chose a recipe from my cupcake book and got to work.

I've never seen anyone concentrate so hard on stirring!

Of course you cannot be a successful cook without having a taste along the way. Luckily the mixture met her very high standards.

After some very hard work with icing she was very pleased with the final result.

Can you spot the spider unhappy about having one eye removed by a small finger?!

The only problem with all this cooking and baking is that I end up eating too much! I have more cake than is good for my waistline but I'm sure it's good for mental health to sit down with a cup of tea and a slice of homemade cake every day!
