The Pick of the Bunch - Spring into Summer

Rye Muesli Soda Bread

Well, people, I have been away a couple of weekends in a row, and I'm heading off on a week-long holiday this weekend. There hasn't been much cooking going on around these parts, but there has been quite a lot of dreaming about food........and catching up on blogs I love.......and a bit more dreaming about food.....

Thai Soup inspired by Nigel Slater

But instead of keeping all the goodies for myself, I thought I'd share my favourite picks from the recipes I've bookmarked in the past week or so.

Mini Gooey (Swedish) Chocolate Cakes
Strange as it may sound,  when I tried to get my choices down to four or five recipes, I  found that I had the perfect spring-into-summer menu. I hope you agree!
