I don't have a sweet tooth, except now and then.. I was having a memory moment from my childhood. I prefer peanut butter.

I have a raging sweet tooth. As a kid I did not like lollies. Weird eh?

Got 2 red currant, one white currant and one blackcurrant. Will buy more blackcurrents I reckon.

I have a very nice looking recipe for tomato soup. Going to write down the ingredients and buy them at the Adelaide Central Market on Thursday. It is the season for tomatoes after all! Will post the recipe.

I made a gluten free sponge other day, big and fluffy it turned out. Lovely filled with jam and cream but I find in the same day it’s made.... soft and moist, next day the sponge seemed a bit dry... I used cornflour.
So I’m looking to make another using different gluten free agents that don’t feel dry next day.

I am not big on gluten free, tho a rye bread (different gluten) or a cornbread is a nice change now and then.

don't put up photos of home made cakes unless you're willing to come up here to bake me one:B
:smirk I can do that ... next time I’m up there on the Goldy. What do you prefer, sponge, chocolate, I can do a Black Forest cake with Kirsch I just bought up there in Dan Murphy’s... or I can do an orange cake.
Gluten free or with normal flour?

No gluten free for me please ...otherwise I'm not fussy

Back when I had management right, I would jokingly tell new tenants that as part of their tenancy agreement, they had to bring me a piece of any cakes they baked. As a result I would often get tenants and owners bring me baked goods .. i even had one guy ask me once why was his wife baking brownies for me and not for him ... :ROFL1:ROFL1

my hubby and his work colleagues in the workshop say the same thing... when one of the female van drivers has a particular problem with their franchise van... and ask for mechanical help... as long as they bake a cake for them :)

As for gluten free cakes... I tell you what John... I will make 2 chocolate cakes, rich and decadent... I won’t tell you which is gluten free... see if you can tell the difference.

I made a Black Forest cake for my daughter’s birthday.... her friends couldn’t believe it was gluten free and kept asking! I will find the pic and put up soon.

here ‘tis...

I need to bake a gemberkoek (ginger cake) or two to take with me to Tassie later this month. Filling sort of breakfast bread, keeps well.

Have started feeling out if I can get out of going this month, leave it to Aug–September.

That ginger cake, reminded me of a friend whom lived in Morwell (where the recent power station was recently dismantled and chimney stacks blown up).
Well, she used to be my inspiration, energetically always cooking something new all the time, whenever we visited (a 2hour drive) she always had some awesome cake baked we had with a cuppa, a fave I recall was a ginger fluff sponge cake she made.
I’m also thinking how sad she had died so sudden in a car accident. It just feels surreal. Such an amazing mum and homemaker.
just never know, and everyday I enjoy making something delish/wholesome in the kitchen, is with love... and appreciation while I can.
I don’t understand how I hear some mums say they don’t cook. They have family, I don’t understand why they wouldn’t?
Anyway, tonight I feel like making a nice Italian minestrone soup topped with parmigiana cheese, and crusty home made garlic bread.
I love garlic bread, using real butter, with crushed garlic, and chopped parsley loaded onto bread and put in oven in foil wrap.
Warms the cockles of the heart :giggle:

I read some sports coach saying “food is petrol for the body” and was revolted. Food is so much more!
