In My Kitchen: October 2013

Thank you Celia from Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for allowing me to participate In My Kitchen October 2013. This month, in my kitchen are …


Concetta won the first week of Recipe to Riches. They were delicious, but I’m not sure we’d buy them again because we don’t eat very much frozen prepared food.


Last week’s Recipe to Riches was won by Chocorn – corn covered in caramel and then chocolate. They are marketed as a premium product which I think is their downfall. They were overpriced at $8 a box. The dark and milk chocolate were fantastic, but the white chocolate was sickly sweet.

We also tried Sweet Billies the previous week but found them too sweet as well.


Sumac is Herbie’s Spices spice of the month. We have been having it on our chicken fajitas. The berry goes well with avocado and tomatoes, so it’s perfect with guacamole. You can also add the tangy lemony flavour to salads as a garnish and seasoning rubs on grilled and roasted meats (sprinkle on before cooking).


My Aunty made cumquat marmalade, which goes perfectly well my spiced fruit cider bread. I’ve been trying to perfect a bread recipe, and this one finally turned out well.


I’ve been having some fun making felt vegetables. They are supposed to be a Christmas present, but I’m afraid I like them too much to give away.

  1. Your felt vegetables are sooo cute! And we love Herbie’s Spices as well – the sumac is fabulous sprinkled on top of homemade hommus! 🙂

  2. Cute veggies! and I adore sumac…I need to use it more often.
    We used to sell Scout popcorn and they had a similar popcorn product. Caramel corn covered in chocolate. It was so rich and delicious!

  3. Emma, thanks for your IMK selections and reviews this month. I like hearing about new products and honest assessments about them. Your felt tomato reminded me of the pin cushion my Mom always kept by her sewing machine and your eggplant is darling!

  4. G’day Thank you for sharing your kitchen view, true!
    WISH could try some of your cumquat marmalade, and love the sewn veggies…will make great presents too!
    Cheers! Joanne
