Hello! Debbie here again, with some tasty recipe inspiration for you.
After my first guest-blog-post for Katyascakehole back in February, which included very sweet and highly indulgent desserts, I am now back with some recipes that are a little kinder to the waistline.
Spring is has begun and summer is just a stones throw away, so I’ve started to think about those lighter, healthier meals which are great for warmer weather. October to March, for me, is all about lashings of mashed potato and butter, so its time to start thinking about vibrant salads, rustics grains and crunchy veg.
These 5 recipes are some of my favourite dishes for helping with that transition from winter to summer; healthy, colourful and satisfying.
