We’ve been going barbecue-crazy, with a special feature on American slow ‘n’ low grilling, some fantastic new BBQ favourites (fish tacos and margaritas, anyone?), great veggie options so that everyone’s included and some gorgeous summer cocktails to wash it all down. Of course, we couldn’t forget about hearty homemade burgers, our summer staple, and have been munching our way through five delicious variations. Meanwhile, our steak sandwich (a perennial Easy Food favourite) was such a thing of beauty that we just had to put it on the cover!
Elsewhere, cucumbers are in season and we’ve been experimenting with some refreshing new ways to use them. We’ve got our usual fix of midweek meals, plus five tasty frittata recipes for cheap and cheerful dinners that are full of flavour. We’ve also been whipping up some healthy homemade baby food, so that you can give your little ones the best start in life.
Our ice cream sundae feature is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth… or, for the more adventurous, why not try make your own baked Alaska? Our step-by-step photo guide means that making this super-impressive dessert is easier than ever. For those who’d rather be cutting back on the sweet stuff, our low-sugar dinners, desserts and snacks will have you sorted.
