    What an amazing dish the British summer pudding is – simplicity itself, and as perfect as a midsummer's day. The peaches or nectarines add a slightly different dimension to this version, a marvellous way of eating a nice large portion of ripe fresh fruit, not cooked at all so as to retain all its nutrients.

    A simple, yet delicious salad, that's bursting with flavours from the Mediterranean. Tomatoes are tossed with olives, fresh mozzarella, basil and croutons in an olive oil-balsamic vinegar dressing. The perfect summer salad that can be enjoyed any day of the week.

    A very simple recipe, these croutons are good for a Caesar salad or any crisp green salad. Also nice to serve atop a bowl of soup.

    A local restaurant served a version of this recipe. I went crazy over it and decided to create my own with leftover baguette. It's great served warm or cold.

    All you need is leftover sliced bread, eggs, milk and a few spices to make the best French toast for a quick and easy breakfast. Serve with maple syrup and fresh fruit if you need to make it a bit more special!
