Spring Favourites

Spring is here and in full swing! I’ve certainly enjoyed the warmer weather and I’m looking forward to cooking with some tasty summery fruit and veg in a couple of months time. In the mean tie, here are some of my favourite spring/summer recipes to eat alongside usual, more wintery meals to add a little bit of freshness. I’ve also included some links to some more spring/summer recipes from one of my favourite and most used websites for inspiration, www.deliciousmagazine.co.uk!


THE SIDE DISH


Chilli mint smashed new potatoes. are one of my favourite spring potato dishes. Add them to your usual dinner and the minty-chilli freshness instantly adds some spring/summer vibes to your meal.

A Ginger and Blackberry Mojito is the perfect way to kick off an April dinner party. Zesty and fresh, perfect all the way through spring and summer.

THE DESSERT


 This Berry ripple sundae is a great way to finish off your meal. It’s fresh but still sweet, satisfying those post-meal sugar cravings.
