My parents were going off on a holiday all over Germany with their friends.
While usually I would give them a list that looks like this:
This time I gave them a list that looked like this:
And as usual, my Mum and Dad did not disappoint.
Will you take a look at this stash!?
It makes me crazy happy thinking of all the new recipes I’m going to try and all the new tastes to experiment with.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the stuff, shall we?
Pretty, pretty cupcake decorations. I make about 24 cupcakes every week, (yes, I know. It’s a bit scary) so it won’t take me too long to get through this
Floral cupcake wrappers.
An assortment of German sausages.
Sausages have been on my mind recently, since I’m editing a book on them. To actually get to taste some of them? Pretty awesome.
Vanilla sugar. A match made in heaven and blessed by angels.
I’ve never used anything except regular salt before. Can’t wait to get all fancy with this baby
And one in a tube! Love it.
There is an amazing Dulce-de-leche recipe that uses this. It was on Masterchef Australia recently. Will be trying that.
Geez, I feel so fancy anyone got any recipe ideas for this one?
Also, my best friend went to Leh on a holiday, and look what I got from there.
Sea buckthorn jam- with no preservatives. This will be delish on fresh toast.
And (I’m so excited about this)…
Sun-dried tomatoes! And look how pretty A few in a dish of pasta will brighten it up and add so much flavour.
I’m off to spend some quality time with my loot. Have a good weekend you guys
