It’s once again time to throw open the doors to My Kitchen Café and this month my guest is Natashya who blogs at Living in the Kitchen with Puppies. Even if the name of her blog doesn’t get you wondering, you ought to step across to see the variety of good food she cooks up from cuisines across the world. She also writes rather neat cookbook reviews.
I first came across her blog when I started baking with the Bread Baking Babes (as a buddy!), but got to know her a bit better over a wet grinder!
Her friend bought her a wet grinder thinking it was a flour mill. A wet grinder is an appliance that a lot of south Indian kitchens cannot do without, and mine is one of them. So Natashya sent out a “help wanted” tweet on Twitter asking if anyone knew how to use one. I replied and it turned out we even had the same brand and model of wet grinder! E-mails/ tweets followed and that’s how we became virtual friends.
I’ll let her introduce herself to you and a bit of her country through her post ~ Maple Apple Granola Crisp!
I am a Canadian food blogger, just outside of Toronto, with three grown children, one happy hubby, and, of course, puppies. When I say "living in the kitchen", I mean it. It is my favourite room of the house. I have a little television set in there, a huge library of cookbooks, the pups have beds by the table, and we happily while away our days in cooking and baking bliss. Occasionally we leave the house for walkies, shopping, and to bark at squirrels. It's a rough life. (Or is that ruff?)
When Aparna asked me about a guest post, I wanted to profile something that represented Canada to me - delicious maple syrup. A true treasure indeed.
Real maple syrup is a point of pride in Canada. Just look at our flag!
