We’re bang in the middle of summer, and Christmas should be the last thing on our minds... unless you’re a gardener! In late July and early August there’s still time to put a few veg in the ground, ready to reap the rewards of a homegrown dinner come Christmas.
It’s basically a fancy, bashed-up ice lolly, but nothing beats a cool granita on a hot day. At its simplest, the recipe is a frozen fruit juice. But once you’ve mastered the basics, it’s easy to get clever with your favourite flavour combos!
When it comes to cooking with children, it’s vital to have the right kitchen kit. A combination of safe and easy-to-use equipment will help you and the kids get brilliant results (and have fun!) every time you cook together.
Treat yourself to a special evening at home this summer. Spend a little time putting together something delicious, put your phone on silent, head out into the garden, and indulge in a truly peaceful, delicious summer’s evening!
Crispy, golden fish fingers are brilliantly fun and easy to make – and great for cooking with kids. Dish up with tartar sauce and sweet potato wedges for a brilliant midweek meal, or make a batch and serve as party food with wedges of lemon to season.
