on friday already, i had a winter jam-making session. and it felt soo good! i had frozen blackberries which i picked from my parents garden back in september and now made some regular blackberry jam and some blackberry and red currant jam. there's no better way to bring some summer into a wet and grey winter's day!
The Rhythm of Family, but we also love a less sweet version without the honey. i usually experiment a little with different kinds of wholegrain flours.
Polkadot Lane's Pin It? Make It!) i pinned this awesome recipe by Some the Wiser and then made it the next day and it was so so so so gooood! i made it for dinner the same day (with scrambled eggs as a side) and for lunch again the next day. pictured above is my version without the croissant but with wholewheat sandwich bread and cheese on both sides, yum!
and then i have been making bacon-wrapped dates multiple times in the last weeks. i just.can't.get.enough.of.them. here is how i prepare them:
* i soak the dates in orange juice (with a little sherry in it too, if you like) for a couple of hours.
* then i put about a teaspoon of cream cheese inside the dates (where the stone used to be),
* wrap them in bacon and put them in the oven for about 15 minutes (180°C, 350°F).
the above photo is proof of how scrumptious they are, i only remembered to take a photo after most of them (and the salad and homemade bread and the avocado) were eaten up.
what have you been up to in your kitchens? anything new or old you'd like to share?
