In My Kitchen - July 2015

It's time for another round of the very cool monthly happening called "In My Kitchen" run by Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial. I can't believe it's already been a year since joining in the fun!

So here we go....

This Month in my Kitchen...

Native Carolina Mantid

June was a hot and humid month, not to mention a very busy work month, while July has started off extremely rainy, hot, and humid but the garden seems to be loving it. Our snow peas and squash are producing like crazy, while our tomatoes are heavy and waiting for the sun to ripen. The Silver Queen Corn in our 3 Sisters Garden is already taller than Kishore and tasseling, while the Blue Hubbard Squash and Beans are starting to flower.

We had a great Independence Day BBQ with family and friends. The dinner menu was inspired by Southwest Native American cuisine. Recipes coming soon!

Black Bean & Cornmeal Patties Recipe Link Here.

The Garden is growing and we have been reaping the rewards. 

Raspberries, Kohlrabi, Patio Eggplants, Hot Wax Peppers, Summer Squash, Snow Peas, and Zucchinis.

Some new kitchen toys...
Desert Salt from South Africa that has a surprising sweetness to it. Sushi Molds for me and my brother to experiment with, and a Paella Pan.

Jalapeño Southwest Flatbread, Recipe coming soon...

 Please make sure you stop in and take a glance at everyone else's kitchens!

So tell me...What's happening in your kitchen this month?

If you're curious here's a link to what we were up to  during last year's In My Kitchen: July 2014


  1. I LOVE the Native Carolina Mantids! So rare and unusual! Your black bean patties and mesquite smoked pork look and sounds delicious!
    Thanks for this month's kitchen views too!

    1. Hi Joanne! They are so cute aren't they, they are often hard to find and tend to get eating by the much larger Chinese Mantids. Black Bean Patty recipe coming soon, Thanks for stopping by! :)

  2. All of your garden produce is wonderful. Looking forward to the jalapeño flatbread recipe.

    1. Thanks Shaheen! It's been crazy hot and humid here but the squash is loving it! :)

  3. Love all the veggies you are harvesting, especially the snow peas. Where did you get the salt from? I sell it and love the ethos of this company so much :)

    1. Thanks Tandy! I found the salt in a TJ Maxx was curious to try it, that's awesome that you sell it! It truly has a great taste, slightly sweet like I said, and it's great that the company is sustainably harvesting. Now I know who and where to get more, small world! :)

  4. look at all that wonderful produce. those golden raspberries look tasty. the flatbread sounds delicious too. have a great month.

  5. yeah crazy hot here too for Berlin (considering there is no aircon anywhere it's very unpleasant). Love the coloured raspberries, I've never seen them before (I assume they are all raspberries?) Such a good IMK this month

    1. Thanks for stopping by Cate! Yes they are raspberries, if you see them get them, they are so much sweeter than the red ones. :)
