Anyone else feel like the Summer holidays are rushing by? Next week I’m heading off for a week by the good old English seaside but, I see from the blogs I’ve been reading this week that some of you have been to much more exciting places! Ellie from Cornflower Kitchen has been travelling around Europe and I love this post about one of the places where she stayed in Croatia. These mushrooms and garlic on toast look like a simple, but perfect dish for camping.
Next up, we have an anniversary to celebrate because Alice Can’t Cook is one year old. To mark the occasion she has written this brilliant poem and tells us that she still can’t cook… but she’s getting better at it!
I’ve never made pasta with my children but this gorgeous blog post by Claire from things we make has made me want to try. The photo story is just wonderful and George has done a magnificent job with that pasta.
I was very excited to come across this redcurrant and white chocolate muffin recipe from All That I’m Eating. I ordered blackcurrants in my online shopping the other day but they brought me redcurrants and I wondered what to do with them. Now I know exactly what I’m going to make!
Recently, Ms Marmitelover, along with several other food bloggers from around the world, was invited on a trip to Israel to learn about their food. This is a brilliant write up about some of the people she met and the food she had, including a delicious-sounding recipe for tofu shakshouka.
We are big fans of cous cous in our house and are always looking for recipes to use up the leftovers in the fridge, so this recipe for Egg Fried Cous Cous with Fridge Bottom Veggies from Fuss Free Flavour looks right up our street. Perfect for using everything up before we head off on our holidays.
I just couldn’t resist this colourful coleslaw from Vanilla Clouds and Lemon Drops. I bet this would go down brilliantly at a BBQ and I love the suggestion of serving it with cheese toasties. That’s lunch sorted then!
Another thing to add to my holiday picnic ideas list is this baba ganoush from A Spoonful of Sugar. I’ve never tried making it before but, if you don’t mind a little mess when you’re taking the skin off the aubergines, it looks like an easy recipe.
If you’re looking for a tasty recipe that’s great for the whole family, then why not try this Prawn and Broccoli Pie from Mamacook? Lots of veggies, juicy prawns and a thick cheese sauce – what more could you want?!
I do like to finish off with something sweet, so I shall share these chocolate chip cookies with you. I found them on Almond and Honey and they look chewy and scrummy. We shall definitely be making some to munch on the beach next week.
