This post is dedicated to ginger nuts. When I say that I mean people who love ginger!
I never thought I would be able to stomach ginger again after consuming packets of crystallised ginger during the first 3 months of pregnancy (to settle the morning sickness). Six months down the track and I saw this recipe for ginger nut biscuits, and had an overwhelming urge to make them (along with so many other exotic recipes – the maternal nesting has really kicked it!).
This recipe was in the woman’s Day magazine, however I changed it slightly to make them a little more gingery (after tasting the raw mixture I didn’t think they deserved to be called ginger nuts – so got a little heavy handed with the ground ginger!). I shared these with 3 people on the weekend, and all of them wanted the recipe – so I guess you could say they were a hit.
I’ve mentioned in an earlier blog a quirky habit of mine… collecting antique (or they could be better described as ‘vintage’), red cooking utensils.
I had been talking up the great finds I had made over the Christmas break, and have found it necessary to share with you the finished product.
How do you know when you have finished collecting something? Quite simply, when you run out of wall space in the kitchen! I am very happy with the variety I was able to find. There are some rather unique pieces in the collection.
Ta Da…. here it is!
There are a lot of Kitchen utensils (more than 4000…) and they have some very strange names, and purposes (and my husband is very concerned about this).
He is concerned because about 2 years ago I started collecting red antique kitchen utensils to hang on our kitchen wall. It started off very casually at first, however I did hear the words ‘becoming an obsession’ muttered by my husband yesterday in an antique store when I was purchasing my 17th item (If only he knew there are around 3950 more out there according to Scullery Made!).
