Lemon Tarts with Blueberries, Strawberries and/or Raspberries

The original recipe by Eleanor Ozich was for Lemony Creme Tarts with Fresh Figs but whilst I love fresh figs, I didn’t have any available and the grandchildren were coming the next day so I decided to adapt the recipe to use what I had in the fridge and what I know would catch their eye. 379 more words

Tomato, Mozzarella and Avocado on Toast

The other day I was given a box of delicious looking gluten-free Melba toasts with dates, walnuts and sunflower seeds.  A day or two later what should arrive in my inbox but a recipe from Jamie’s Super Food Family Classics which I realised I could adapt quite easily to use these toasts and as it was a gloriously warm spring day, we sat outside in the sunshine and devoured these delicious snacks. 122 more words
