Tasty Tuesday ~ In the Kitchen

   I heard it said that if someone has a passion, that passion brings a smile to his or her face and gives them a purpose in life. Well, baking is my passion and never am I happier than when I'm in the kitchen blowing clouds of flour everywhere and singing and jabbering away to myself in french whilst concocting something new.

  This past week I have been baking more than I can ever remember baking before, I have dirtied pretty much every dish in our kitchen cupboards at one point, and my poor little recipe box is now bursting with an influx of new tasty recipes. To be honest, all the mountains of dirty dishes I've created haven't been fun to scrub, but the food made with their help made it all worth it, at least in my books.

  Today I am going to share with you a few pictures of the foods I have been making.

 Here is  a picture of the homemade cookie crisp cereal I made, needless to say it was a long night forming each of those, but apparently Diane seems to think it was worth it.

  Then I was feeling summery one particularly sunny and cheery day, so I made two different kinds of galettes  and a tray full of berry and cream tarts. You might have guessed it, but I made a terrific mess in the kitchen that day.

    I was very much in the summer mood lately so I made a strawberry and cream cake, the recipe was from Rachel Khoo, I love all of her recipes and  she is my favorite culinary personality.

  Making my own cereal has really been one of my favorite things to do lately, and so when I found a recipe for chocolate and peanut butter cereal I jumped at it because I dearly love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter.

  And lastly but not at all the least, I made cupcakes, I had such a splendid time making them, and if truth be told I walked through the kitchen as many times as possible after I had made them because I loved gazing at them and envisioning them gracing a little shop window or boulangerie in Paris.


  1. All of those look professionally made. You are very talented!

  2. It all looks so delicious and very pretty too.

  3. The strawberry cream cake looks divine. I too enjoy baking so it was especially fun to scroll through your pictures.

  4. Oh my....what lovely treats! Everything looks amazing and delicious.

    Have a blessed Sunday! Hugs!

  5. Wow, what a sweet and amazing gift you have--straight from Heaven, I might add!
    Thanks for sharing with us, although my mouth is watering now...
