September nibbles

  • Favourite September dish? I must confess I really really enjoyed my homemade Tempura. More than what would strictly be appropriate. I might need to see someone about that... The sweet treat award goes to Sour Cherry & Apple Clafoutis for it's pretty look, silky texture and dreamy fragrance.
  • Now that we're heading into summer here in the southern hemisphere, how about some Tropical No-Dairy Icecream. And the secret ingredient? Avocado! After my avocado smoothie experience recently (delicious by the way) I've got to try this.
  • Potato peeling a pain in the butt (not to mention a finger scorcher)? Here's an easy how-to for peeling a boiled potato.
  • Talking of cupcakes, here's a quick diy for a cupcake tower. Pretty right?
  • Always been intimidated by baking bread? I'm talking the real, honest-to-goodness, I made the dough from scratch, let it rise and baked it type of thing. Fear no more! Here we have a step-by-step instruction manual (pics included) on how to make your own sourdough starter. And as we all know, a great starter makes for a great loaf.
  • And the FFF* for September is....drumroll please... I'm No Jamie Oliver! New on the blogging scene, South African and male, Matt's blog records his kitchen adventures working through Jamie Oliver's 20 Minute Meals. I love how down to earth Matt is and as added bonus feature, he spotlights green/eco living from time to time as well. Because green = good, mmmkay?
  • Actually I have TWO FFF*'s for September. I'm indecisive okay? So FFF* numero duo is.... drumroll again... La Kocinera. The culinary adventures of a quirky college student, this is witty, snarky writing at it's best. With tongue firmly in cheek, great recipes and an awesome Ugly Betty t-shirt-wearing blog author, this one was a no-brainer.

Please be aware that all wittiness within me immediately flies out the window the second I receive any sort of praise. Thank you so much for mentioning me--I'm officially geeking out now! :D

What a great September recap! I remember your homemade tempura, it looked amazing!

Glad you enjoy it Ann! I do a round-up like this at the end of every month, so look out for the next one coming up Oct 31st.
