Saturday in Ellen's Kitchen


Today in Ellen's kitchen we are having some fun with confectioners sugar. Some call it icing sugar and some call it powdered sugar. Here in my kitchen we call it powdered sugar. One of our favorite gadgets to use powdered sugar with is this old Tupperware Jifi-Sift. You need to be careful filling it but once you have it's a breeze to use.
 
Do you have one of these in your kitchen?
If you don't have a Jifi-Sift you can use something similar to the handled strainer above to gently powder anything.

Next week I will share the recipe to make this Pumpkin Spice Cake which is perfect to serve sprinkled with powdered sugar. This is one of my favorite vintage milk glass cake plates that was passed down to us from Greg's mother.  

Here in my kitchen we are also starting to thing about Thanksgiving which is on November 24th in the United States. I know our Canadian neighbors have already celebrated in October. 

Feeling thankful here in my house and kitchen. Hope you have a list of thankfuls. Feel free to share one or two thankfuls in the comments.

  1. I'm thankful to live in the land of plenty. Just returned from the store and was impressed by the abundance of good things we have to choose from. May I never take it for granted.

  2. Ooo - that cake looks yummy and who knew Tupperware had a widget for icing sugar (that's what we call it over here)? Handy way to have it ready for quick sprinkling.
    I am so thankful (not enough words) for having my grand baby so close now - just spent the whole morning and part of the afternoon with her and it's just so wonderful.
    Thankful for you Ellen and all the MGCC ladies who inspire me every day on so many levels.
    Have a great weekend....and week, preparing for your Thanksgiving Day.

  3. That Tupperware product looks great and it is new to me. The milk glass is wonderful, too. I can see why it is a treasured piece.

    1. Vee, I've had that powder sugar mill since I've been married so I'm thinking it's at least 40 some years old!
