In My Kitchen - February

Welcome to my February post for " In My Kitchen". I join Sherry at Sherry's Pickings Blog (link) where you can view mine and other blogger's posts to see what's happening in everyone's kitchen each month. 

This month I've discovered nori which is the seaweed used to make sushi. I actually did not make sushi, but I have enjoyed using the seaweed in various ways such as making low fat, low calorie wraps. I'll be sharing that post this soon.

I bought two new matching bowls for my kitchen last month. You can't tell from the photo but they are two different sizes. 

This is the smaller bowl. I have not decided what to use it for yet.

This bowl is the larger bowl and I keep fruit in it. I changed the look of my kitchen a little from modern white bowls to dressier glass bowls for fruit. 

My actual winter Florida kitchen is not spacious enough to be an eat in kitchen, so directly outside of the kitchen is a dinette area where 
we eat. 

On our visit to see family in Israel this past May, I picked up this cheerful key holder. It's been in the box for months, and I finally decided to hang it in my kitchen. Shalom means hello, good bye, or peace!

We had company one day and I put out stuffed grape leaves as an appetizer.

I also served stuffed baby portobello mushrooms with spinach and tofu filling. I have not posted the recipe yet. 

If you read my previous post for toasted croutons, you may have seen this meal I made for my husband of chopped tomatoes, yellow rice, and toasted tofu in the air-fryer! He seasoned it with lemon juice and a few drops of sesame oil. I seasoned my plate with lemon and za'atar (no oil)

This is a large melamine carrot plate that sits on my counter and holds fruit. I like to put oranges in it. I sometimes use it as a serving piece when I host a brunch.

 That's all that new for this month's post. 


  1. Your new kitchen things are very beautiful and colorful or in the case of the glass bowls, rather subtle!
    best, mae at

  2. Love the beautiful bowls. Everybody is showing food this evening, and now I am hungry. Shalom! Valerie

  3. Everything looks really delicious and I think your bowls are absolutely gorgeous -- a wonderful find.

  4. I look forward to the portobello recipe.

  5. I love these kitchen posts because I’m nosy and I like to see what’s going on in other peoples’ kitchens. Those portobello mushrooms look good, although I can’t do soy of any kind, so tofu is not an option for me. I love the carrot dish! That would look so pretty on a spring or Easter table scape.

  6. Your new bowls look good.
    Those stuffed baby Portobello mushrooms look delicious.

    All the best Jan

  7. I love having a peek in your kitchen! The dinette table is beautiful as are your bowls!!!

  8. Everything looks so delish and I especially loved the key holder - so cute!

  9. I was going to say that you should put mandarins or cuties in the smaller glass bowl...then I saw your carrot platter. Love!

  10. the mushrooms look great as do the dolmades. Love your new bowls too! Nori is so useful; I like to cut it into strips and throw it on all sorts of dishes. Thanks for joining in this month. And see you in March for another IMK.

  11. Love the glass bowls, and I can eat stuffed grape leaves anytime. Especially warmed like they eat them in Bulgaria :)

  12. Your carrot bowl is sooooo cute!!!! xoxo

  13. I love your bowls, keyholder, and carrot plate! They're all so eclectic and special. 🐤🔑🥕

  14. It's such fun have a glimpse in other peoples kitchens. Thank you, your Florida kitchen looks very inviting. My mother had a carrot bowl like that, it's perfect for orange fruits.

  15. What a lovely post about your home in Florida! So pretty! I love each of the bowls that you shared with us too. We're on our way to FL for spring break next week and looking forward to that beautiful sunshine!
