This week in my kitchen...

Please join everyone in Heather's Blog Hop... 

Picked some lovely daffodils from our garden at the old cottage... 
And made some muffins..  

Delicious fiddle heads with butter and lemon.. 
We look forward to this treat all Spring..

Last Fall my hubby picked High Bush Cranberries that grew along the back roads and we have enjoyed homemade Cranberry Juice.. 
So healthy and good.. 

Then there is the Rhubarb.. 

Homemade Jams and Jellies for next Winter.. 

A quiet lunch.. 
Tomato and Basil Sandwich with a nice hot cup of tea and olives.. 

Do you use lemongrass?? 

I love it in fish dishes or just to simmer in a pot on the top of stove for a lovely room freshener... 

Rhubarb Crumble... 

Eating off the fat of the land.. 
Venison steaks and fiddleheads, onions and mashed potatoes... 

Each day I find myself snapping a picture or two in the kitchen - a pile of ingredients, a table waiting for us to gather around, a sink full of soapy dishes, a cup of tea, dinner as it comes out of the oven - simple, everyday moments in the kitchen. These photos serve as a reminder of days gone by and as encouragement to carry on in this busy kitchen of ours when inspiration is lacking.

Thanks so much for your sweet visit.. 
Looking forward to you comments and questions which I will do my best to answer.. 

Hope you join us all in the fun of peeking into each other's kitchens..

  2. aw lovely! I snickered when I saw your mug that said "Keep Calm and Carry On." I bought my daughter a tshirt that says Keep Calm and Graduate! It has a crown above the words! She's got her algebra class to finish then she's done with her degree! Finally!

  3. Its such fun to visit you..
    So hungry now :)
    Woolie Hugs

  4. You have my mouth watering with those beautiful pictures of Fiddleheads! I LOVE them! Your muffins look so tender and yummy! I also like very much the beautiful table! It looks as if you've had a lovely week at the cottage. Have a lovely weekend, Faye!

  5. Homemade cranberry juice, YUM! I love cranberry juice, I have never had homemade. I bet it taste way better than Ocean Spray.

  6. Always enjoy my visits to your home Faye....have a wonderful weekend.

  7. Great photos.
    I have never tried a fiddlehead. They look good.
    I should be brave and try them. :-)

  9. Morning Faye, always a joy to visit you in your cozy kitchen and see what you are up too, Blessings Francine.

  10. Your posts on food always make my mouth water, today was no exception! Thank you for the inspiration for lovely meals yet again.

  11. Daffodils, muffins, rhubarb crumble and those fiddleheads. What a kitchen, Faye....full of all old timey, old recipes and inspiration to all your friends who read this blog. I love your pictures. The one with the daffodils would make a gorgeous notecard.

  12. Fiddleheads, don't know that I have ever heard of them, or if they grow in the wild here, but they look good. I would like to try them someday. Love your cosy kitchen, and now I am hungry :) Blessings friend

  13. Are fiddleheads good? My daughter and I saw them for the first time in the grocery store(we are in Ontario). Is there something that you could compare the taste to? I wouldn't mind trying them.

  14. Hi Theresa.. Yes they are delicious... They taste better then spinach or most greens that you cook.. I think the only thing better are our Sanphire greens that grow on the marshes here in the Summertime..
    But everyone has different tastes.. If you like greens then you will love them.. Thanks for visiting.. xo

  15. LOVE your photos, Faye! That rhubarb crumble looks delicious! We grow rhubarb in our garden & look forward to our favorite -- Rhubarb Pie!! I even had enough left in my freezer to make two pies for a family lunch earlier this spring. It was such a delicious treat after a long winter.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I look forward to visiting your kitchen again! Have a great weekend. ~Sally

  16. We had fiddleheads and rhubarb crumble this week too. It seems they arrive together doesn't it? So delicious. We are into a fine stretch of weather eh? I am really enjoying the sun and heat on these old bones. Have a wonderful weekend Faye. xo Pam

  17. hello faye,
    beautiful photosfrom your kitchen,again. That rhubarb crumble looks so good. I love rhubarb jam ,too.
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend,
    blessings regina

  18. Faye, these pictures are so wonderful, and the food looks great. Thank you so much for sharing. I always look forward to peeks into your kitchen!

  19. everything looks so delicious. I want to comment about it all. Where do I begin? The little muffins look so moist, I love the idea of the fiddlehead ferns. I don't know if we have them here or we can eat any kind of ferns. I love lemon grass but only use it in Tai green curry. What a great idea to use it as a room freshener. Oh and I love cranberry juice. They are great in apple crumble too. Thanks for sharing everything with us.
