Too hot to cook

Kia ora everyone,

I don't know about everyone else but this lovely hot weather is even sapping some of my motivation and enthusiasm in the kitchen. What can I do about this, I thought? I needed inspiration...and what better place to find it than on this very website!

I had a great time looking through all the recipes, bookmarking those that took my fancy, looking at them all again and highlighting my favourites. It did the trick alright, now I'm spoilt for choice for ideas of what to cook. The new search features are great, I particularly like the search by season function.

Anyways, I thought I'd share with you all some that struck me as 'just what I felt like'. I am a big fan of the Homemade Burger and the Sesame Lamb Burgers which sound absolutely delicious. Salads are essential in summer and there's a great recipe for a yummy Cous Cous Salad and I'm going to make the Chunky Beetroot Salad with Yoghurt and Garlic Dressing as well. I am also a huge fan of smoothies and the Fruit Salad Smoothie is so easy and so yummy. So there you go I highly recommend a good dose of to cure the 'I don't know what to cook'!

Until next time, health and happiness everybody.Lana
