Do I or Don't I...

post about my baking or what happening in the garden??? Well I decided thats all I have to share for the moment. So on the baking front...


some Choc Chip cookies made in my Kitchen Aid mixer, no sifting of flour or hand mixing in the flour (dry ingredients), I let the KA do all the work!

And I have only recently discovered we have a native pepper shrub here in tassie with berries that once dried taste really nice in the grinder...so I have gone out and purchased my own plants so I can dry my own  peppers to grind. Male and Female (females in photo) plants are required to do this. Even the leaves can be added to cooking to add a peppery flavour! Will be adding one to my Pumpkin soup, along with my Bay leaf next time!!

What I am also keen to know is has anyone ground Wattle seeds to use in cooking??

I hope you are all enjoying your wekend!!!

Yummy bikkies. I think we're all posting about gardening and cooking because of all the secret sewing going on. Can't help with the seeds. Enjoy the weekend.

Hello Lisa,

Good luck with your bush tucker cooking. I have used Wattle seed in cakes, really couldn't taste the difference. A friend went to the wildflower festival that is held in Dalwallinu each year and bought back some wattle seed flour for cooking.

Happy days.
