Even if you’re just cooking up these recipes using an oven grill, griddle or regular pan, I’m sure you’ll agree that summer vibes are always welcome. Here are some recipes that have become firm favourites over onjasminehemsley.com.BBQ Basted Veggies With Almond AioliA recipe that can easily be made vegan by substituting your fav cooking oil for the ghee, and that works with whatever veggies need using up in the fridge.Pickled Red Cabbage With Hazelnuts and Griddled AppleThis recipe says to griddle the apples on a pan, but you can just as well do them on the barbecue for an extra special touch.

12 days to go!!!! How does it go from “too early to think about Christmas” to “bloomin’ heck it’s just around the corner!” in a heartbeat?! Check out how I’ve prepped for this party season and the big day itself.In the run-up to Christmas 2019 I’ve created a brand new recipe for the Christmas table: a colourful roasted sweet potato wreath decorated with rosemary and cranberries that makes an impressive centrepiece, tastes amazing and is so versatile — just pop your favourite festive filling in the middle! I’ve also gathered together the rest of my celebration recipes here if you need a little inspiration.I’ll be serving the stuffed sweet potato wreath with pickled red cabbage, toasted hazelnuts and griddled apple for a delicious balance of tastes and extra crunch.I’m also getting down with some bake-off therapy and gifting delicious little baked bites in ribboned jars to friends as an eco gift that I know will go down a treat! I’ve got two new festive recipes, one for all-things-spice…
