In My Kitchen

In My Kitchen for the month of June are some Chelsea Buns, made yesterday when it was raining and it felt like we just needed something hot and chewy to nibble on with a cup of coffee while sitting watching the rain through the window.
A couple of Bannetons or proofing baskets to get those lovely looking loaves one sees in all the bread recipe books.
My KitchenAid mixer, I have wanted one of these for years so I indulged and bought one last year.
A colourfull Rooster Tile that my daughter bought recently at Eumundi Markets

Why not check out Celia'a blog at to see what others are doing in their kitchens

Have a great day

Shirley :)


  1. Hi! Thanks for sharing a look at your little piece of "paradise". I love the tile- and the Chelsea buns look fantastic- yum!
    Your banetton is beautiful and I agree- KitchenAid mixers are just the best!

  2. Shirley, I LOVE your rooster tile! The bannetons are great too, I use mine all the time. The weather here in Sydney is wet and drizzly today, and I could use one of your scrolls with a nice hot cuppa.. :) Thanks for sharing your kitchen with us!

  3. Oh, that rooster is simply beautiful! And I love the colour of your KA. Lovely.

  4. Hi Lizzy, it was difficult to choose a colour for the KitchenAid's, all the colours are so nice, my daughter bought the black one :)

  5. Shirley, those Chelsea buns look great and I am so jealous of your bannetons. I would love some.

  6. Hi passionfruitgarden, they were quite nice though I think they could have risen a little more, they took some time to proove but then the weather was cool. The bannetons I got from ebay, with free delivery, they are quite expensive to buy in kitchen shops. So check out ebay you may be able to pick some up.:)

  7. Beautiful Kitchen Aid, such great color! You will love it, I am sure!

    and also your banettons, I have recently caved and bought an oval shape - now I want a bigger oval shape, of course.. once you start the bread route, it doesn't seem to end! ;-)

    Nice to "meet" you!

  8. Love your rooster tile! Love the Eumundi markets too - treasures at every turn! :)
