In My Kitchen for September

Spring is here, hooray, however the heat has arrived here in Brisbane up in the high 20"s today though the evenings can still be cool.

In my kitchen this month A set of Neoflam saucepans, these can be used on the cooktop, as a cake tin, a casserole dish, very versatile, attractive and oh so colourful.  They have a removable clip on handle and stack so easily for storage.
 A set of Baccarat knives in a lovely wooden block, I have been a shocker with knives, always blunt so these are proving to be a pleasure to use.
A bottle of 12 year old Muscat we received as a gift, very rich, I find it very much like Madeira wine, love it.
Lastly a jar of Organic Agave Nectar to use as a sweetener in cooking, in recipes 25% less nectar is used than sugar required.
Take a look at what others are doing in their kitchens at Celia's blog, it's very inspirational and she is a great photographer.

Enjoy the remainder of your weekend:)



  1. You cannot help but cook innovative and excellent recipes with those pans to work with Shirley.

  2. I like using agave sweetener- it is so easy to incorporate into recipes- but some need a minimum amount of sugar to achieve the color and consistency I'm looking for.
    I haven't seen those pots, yet- but I like the look of them. I have several generations of cooking pots in my cupboard and I'd love to pitch them all and get a new set of my own.
    Thanks for sharing your kitchen- I enjoyed the mini-tour!

  3. Shirley, those pans look amazing - I love the colours! And the agave is great stuff, isn't it? Apparently it's got a reasonably GI rating as well. The S&K muscat is an Aussie classic - love the stuff! Thanks for sharing your kitchen with us! :)

  4. I too love those saucepans, they look amazing. Where did you get them?

    1. I bought the Neoflam saucepans on line just type in Neoflam into ebay and there are quite a few for sale (new) different styles, I have found them to be very good.

  5. Great collection of pans. I have never cooked with nectar before - sounds really interesting. Anf I definitely need to buy a knife collection. My husband has been after me for years.
    Thanks for sharing!

  6. Hi there,

    Just a note on agave. The latest research has it as a high fructose no no.
