I was introduced to Spanakopita (Greek spinach pie) about four or five years ago by a co-worker. She was Greek and often made this pie, plus other amazing Greek delights, for family dinners. Occasionally she would bring left-over Spanakopita into work to share with us, which wasn’t too often as her family would always eat it. But when she did bring some in, I enjoyed every mouthful immensely.
Lately I’ve been finding some inspiring recipes about making cheese – ricotta, mozzarella, paneer and cottage. The best thing about these cheeses is that they can be made right in the comfort of your own kitchen! I’m really excited about trying all of them as they’re either something I love eating every now and again, or something I’ve always wanted to try. This ricotta was so easy to come together that I think I’ll try my hand at making a few more cheeses.
How quickly has June gone! I can’t believe its July already but I’m so glad to be back with you all – I missed you. Thank you to Celia from Fig Jam & Lime Cordial for another wonderful party – it’s so good to have a peak in your kitchen for some new inspiration. What’s in your kitchen this month?
This month In my Kitchen . . .
Where has time gone? It seems like I haven’t said hi for weeks, even though I was only here last week. I must have been really busy to actually think it’s been that long. I’ve been busy trying new curries, a new savoury bake – not sure about cauliflower in a bake with other vegetables – and I even made some cupcakes! Yes I actually baked and I was very proud of my efforts (as you may or maynot know, I’m not a baker!) It was nephew’s 3rd birthday so I constructed a Digger Cake, which turned out awesome! I’ve been making my dumplings for my family and friends and I enrolled in school. What a week!
