Simple and in Season – The June Round – Up


Well I have yet again been so amazed at the amount of fantastically seasonal recipes that have been entered into my guest hosting for Ren Behan’s “Simple and in Season” for June. There are  an impressive THIRTY ONE  not including my own entry HERE. I have seen so many ideas that I just have to […]

Home Grown Seasonal Salad with a Mint, Oregano & Lime dressing

Home grown salad

Although this is a fairly simple salad in terms of  ingredients, it is pretty much home grown. Potatoes, mustard leaf, spring onions, mint, oregano and chives all came from either the garden or the allotment. Because of this the flavours seem to come alive. The taste of each ingredient is discernible individually but they come […]
