00Lemon Cheesecake-no bakeA yummy combination of ginger biscuits and lemon flavours make this a creamy no bake dessert that is so easy to do. Your only problem will be leaving it to set in the fridge without delving into it. Shop bought cheesecake is lovely but can it be bland. With this you can make it for your tastes, so as I love lemon, I added extra because, well...it's for me! I also used the lighter mascarpone to see what difference it made to the recipe and apart from a softer set there was no difference in taste.As mentioned this is a softer whipped cheesecake but that's part of its charm I think, as is the rough edges which you can smooth over if you wish.. I did all of this by hand-no processor or mixer as I wanted to see how truly easy it was. If you have a mixer etc that's fine but I realise not everyone does. My cake tin was being used elsewhere so I had to improvise with another and use some baking paper to enable it come out easily-hence the rough edges. You can use this recipe and the step by step instructions as a guide and tailor it to suit you and your families tastes. Why not give it a try and let us know how you get on.00Slow Cooked New PotatoesNew Potatoes are quintessentially the flavour of spring and summer. Whether your favourite is a Jersey Royal or an Ayrshire tattie their earthy nutty flavoured is fantastic in salads or as a side dish to your roast dinner.This gentle cooking method also allows the full flavour of the potatoes to come through. Yes, you could boil them for 20mns on the hob or in the microwave (but I don't have one) but on hot summer days that's not ideal -who wants a hot, steamy kitchen.? so this was the better option imo. This means I can do lots at the one time and use some for dinner and some for potato salad during the week. It also means it can free up space on the hob if your cooking other dishes. Try out this method for yourself and let us know what you think00Cod Tikka Masala CurryFish isn't the natural choice when you think of a curry but as I love a curry and sometimes I dont want any meat then fish is a good alternative.

Its a family friendly recipe that you can tailor for your children's likes as well as the adults. Its also quick to cook which is always a bonus. Dont be put off by the spices- I've added my favourite blend but you can just use a tikka paste and skip step 1.Why not give this a try and let us know how you find it. 00Halogen baked Rhubarb & Apple CrumbleRhubarb(maincrop) is really only available in the shops for about 3 months of the year so take advantage of it and make this family friendly recipe. There's so many flavours sensations going on when you taste this as the fruit is sweet yet tart and the crumble is chewy yet crumbly. Its reminiscent of summer days and can be served topped with ice cream,custard,fresh cream or yoghurt.
