In My Kitchen

In my kitchen this week this month the last few weeks. 


These salmon parcels with oven fried potatoes (chips) and minty mushy peas.



These chewy cocoa brownies.


This  tasty lentil cottage pie with cheesy mash.


This supper onion pie from How to be a Domestic Goddess. Simple and cheap and delicious.



These leftovers. Spaghetti with courgettes, cream and parmesan,


Made into a frittata with some bacon.


These olive toasts. Roughly chopped olives, anchovies, capers, garlic and parsley mixed with lemon juice and olive oil.


These crusty white loaves.


And this mincemeat.




What's been happening in your kitchen lately?

  1. Mostly disasters. I've got to get my mojo back.

  2. Love these dishes, these jolly labels and these ideas.
    Baking trial biscotti for possible gifts next month.
    Ditto for knitting socks for next month too.
    Want to try that onion pie, love the look and sound of it.

    This is my favourite of all your blogs. I love the look of all these wonderful dishes and wonder how you are continually inspired to cook such lovely new things. You ask what has happened in my kitchen-hoisin noodles with soya beans, African stew(yummy) and pasta with spinach, tomatoes and feta. My eldest has decided to be a vegetarian and after months of avoiding the kitchen I finally feel inspired to try some new things. Suspect/hope it does doesn't last till Christmas as I will be doing turkey. Thanks Sue for all the lovely photos. Helen

  8. Ooo! Yum. I especially love the look of your mincemeat. I'm going to make the Christmas cake this weekend. Time is running out for it to mature in time!

  9. Boy would I love to get my teeth into one (or two) of those brownies. Yum!

  10. Well, nothing as tasty as this! At this time of year I really struggle to take decent photos of food in electric light yet yours are really good. What's your secret?! :-)

    1. My kitchen lights seem to be quite forgiving, I have lights under the wall cupboards which seem to produce quite a natural light but if I try to take photos of food in my dining room it looks as if it I've travelled back in time to 1975.

  11. Mmm, I love these posts, so inspirational. I've been making lots of tarts with puff pastry, and playing around with the offcuts, fattening yet delicious!

  12. I made pizza tonight. the toppings all slid off when picked up....... tasted good though............

  13. Not much in terms of anything particularly tasty (I'm trying to be virtuous in the run-up to Christmas then intend to go a bit crazy on all that rich, creamy, fatty, delicious stuff).
    Those brownies are exactly the kind of thing I'm craving at the moment.
    I always use 'Domestic Goddess' for the cake recipes. Maybe I should take another look and try something savoury. Simple, cheap and delicious sounds pretty good to me...

  14. Such delicioys food and very tempting photos.

    Was wondering if you have stopped recommending/linking to other bloggers?

  15. The mincemeat looks wonderful. Do let me know when it's acceptable to start making mince pies. The lentil shepherd's pie sounds delicious as well, I shall give it a go.

  16. Yummety yum! I love the look of the onion tart and the lentil shepherds pie. I love lentils. Great pics too, and I notice another commenter mentioning the light, I agree it's very good, all my photo's look so orange in the winter X

  17. The problem with visiting your blog Sue, is that it so often makes me hungry. I've just eaten breakfast and now I need brownies. Lots of brownies.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh but my husband has had 2 days off work this week and he made 4 batches of a ginger crunch/oaty slice thing. Lord, it was delicious.

  19. Yumm, I'm inviting myself to your place , you make left overs look so good... the lentil pie looks delicious and the onion pie. I might have to go visit Nigella as well! Thanks for the inspiration

  20. In my kitchen this week there has been an awful lot of cake...

  21. Ooh lovely. Just happened to have bought salmon this morning. So now it's you or Delia? But definitely will serve it with fried poatoes & mushy peas. Putting the Olive toast idea on a list for Christmas entertaining/drinks/sitting in front of a film time. Thanks

  22. I baked Orange and Sultana Traybake this week, and will be making some Spiced Pear Muffins tomorrow. You have been very busy in the kitchen, and I must say that reading your post made me feel very hungry! Cathy x

  23. Goodness me your photos have made me very peckish, the brownies in particular look lovely. I have been quite busy in my kitchen recently making Christmas cakes and discovering after years that I can actually make pastry !! Please feel free to pop over and say Hello.

  24. My supper onion pie from that same book didn't turn out half as nicely as yours. I blame myself.

    1. I have the perfect pan for this pie, a tarte tatin pan which really helps make the thing look good so don't blame yourself.

  25. Nothing like that I can tell you! It all looks delicious. I may have to try the brownie recipe, the perfect antidote to the cold grey winter weather. Ah I feel better already.

  26. Nothing at all exciting has been happening in my kitchen lately, but I'm hoping this is all going to change now that I've discovered your blog. You have a Nigella-ish way of making recipes look both tempting and achievable, and I'm feeling downright inspired!

    1. Thank you Mrs Ford, I am far from being Nigella (thank heavens) but I'm all about achievable.

  27. Sue, after returning from my holiday trip, I am trying to catch up on missed posts . Visiting your place is a great pleasure. You've given me lots of cooking ideas to try now that the weather's gotten a bit chilly here in New York.

    Sorry that The Directorists ended its run before I got to see it on my holiday. I am a big Mackenzie Crook fan and do hope that show eventually gets picked by by one of our Public Broadcast Service stations over here.

  28. Obviously not as much happening in my kitchen as in yours! I've been making soup and apple crumbles. Decided not to make mincemeat this year.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Making chai mix from Posy, granola, gravy and cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving. That onion pie of Nigella s is THE best thing; I put brown sauce on mine and always eat way too much of it....
    Will definitely try the minty pea mash......thanks for sharing !

  30. I always feel so hungry when I pop in and see what you've been up to. It's my own fault, but you do make the most delicious looking things. I'm off to raid the fridge!

  31. I make the onion tart a lot. I've been making a lot of soups, my favourite being a spicy squash and red pepper soup. I like the idea of minty mashed peas very much.

  32. Ooh , it's nearly lunch time and olive toasts do sound delicious ...

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh, your mincemeat does look extra good! The best thing to happen in my kitchen lately was to have dinner cooked by a real Mexican, with me as her assistant, learning how to make proper refried beans (aieeee - the olive oil!!) and other delicious things, and not caring how fattening it all was/turned out to be.....
