How can it be May already? Well it's very springlike here already, even though the weather still keeps changing a lot. I guess that's typical for spring anyway. Here is what's new in my kitchen at the moment.
I've had busy times travelling for business, so I brought some souvenirs from my business trips to Düsseldorf, Cologne and Vienna. They are mainly just local sweets and drinks shopped at the airports, as I didn't have much time for shopping otherwise.
Easter went by fast, but I had decorations up and of course there were also Easter beers and eggs.
A dried ramson, wild garlic, spice is new in my kitchen. I haven't managed to get any fresh ones yet, but I guess this dried one is nice too.
Here are some foods that I've cooked recently. I made the Finnish classic Karjalanpiirakat, Karelian pies. They contain savoury rice pudding in a thin rye crust, and are just heavenly when eaten warm with butter on top. I use my grandmother's recipe when making these, as I used to make them together with her.
These risotto burgers with mac'n'cheese were quite nice too.
I also made some veggie noodles with soya bits.
Here is just a random food shopping haul from the other day.
I'm sharing this post with Sherry from Sherry's Pickings blog. She is hosting the In My Kitchen blog challenge.
