Orchids from our wedding

I probably say this at the start of every month but I can’t believe it’s June already. I guess having a wedding to plan makes the year go rather quickly. The start of the month means another In My Kitchen post. The first item in my kitchen this month is the last of the flowers from our wedding. My wonderful grandmother kept them alive and thriving while we were on our honeymoon and I have been giving them very special care.

Emile Henry risotto pot

In my kitchen is an Emile Henry risotto pot given to us as a wedding gift. I blame Celia for my Emilie Henry obsession. They are so fantastic and light and can be used on the stove, in the microwave, in the oven and they go in the dishwasher. What should I cook first?

Tiny tomatoes

In my kitchen are some tiny tomatoes fresh from the vine. My grandma grows the seedlings for me from seed until they’re big enough for me to take. The plant isn’t looking too healthy I’m afraid but the tomatoes are wonderful. There’s nothing like eating something than you picked from the garden just minutes before.

Pear paintings

In my kitchen are three gorgeous pear paintings that my very talented friend Amy made us as a wedding present. They are hanging in the perfect spot in the corner of the kitchen. I love what a difference they made. They make me smile every time I catch a glimpse. Thank you again Amy!!!

Swiss diamond pots

In my kitchen is a whole new set of pots and pans, another wedding present. There are two different frying pans and a big stock pot as well. I did a lot of research before settling on Swiss Diamond for the wedding registry. I wanted a pot with no screws on the inside (because they’re hard to clean), clear lids, that had to be able to go in the oven and the dishwasher. There aren’t many around that tick all those boxes. So far I’ve only made my oats in a pot (we got them on Friday) but it performed well. Before now, I’ve been cooking with el-cheapo pots I bought when I moved out of home.

That wraps up my kitchen tour for June. What about you? What’s in your kitchen this month?
