A new year and getting involved in new things, like Celia from Fig Jam and Lime Cordial’s In My Kitchen monthly glimpse into our homes. Fun and a good way to find out about new things. Love the idea Celia:-)

So, without further ado, in my kitchen this month are…

My new Dorie Greenspan recipe book – Around My French Table – loving it!

20120104-191956.jpgOur little kitchen herbs – parsley, basil and coriander – so happy with how they are doing, boyfriend has sneaky green fingers! Thank goodness, cos I definitely do not!

20120104-192020.jpgKeeping with the latest trend in microherbs, we’ve decided to grow herbs from seed until the leaves are just sprouting and then to use them in salad.  They’re delicious and pack a serious flavour punch. This is just a couple of days growth on cotton wool, reminds us of growing beans on cotton wool as kids 🙂

20120104-192028.jpgThe latest addition to our Nomu collection of rubs, we’re completely in love with the Moroccan one, but are yet to try out the Spanish one – I see prawns in our future very soon.

20120104-192037.jpgSalted caramel – found it in Woolies over Christmastime, not sure what to do with it now!  Any ideas?  Use by date is looming, so it may just have to be consumed as is…I think I can probably handle that!
