Another colourful round of Simple and in Season! I’ve really enjoyed visiting all of the posts and have been busily bookmarking lots of the lovely recipes sent in. You’ll have to scroll through to the bottom to find out who the winner is this month!
You may have also read that I’m hosting the Square Bakes challenge over on the Lurpak Bake Club site, and if your baking happens to incorporate any seasonal ingredients, feel free to take a snap and like your recipe up to both events!
Without further ado, here were the February entries – with huge thanks to all who joined in! The March round of Simple and in Season is now open.
1. First to enter this month was Solange who writes at Pebble Soup entering her bright and cheery Kiwi Muffins.
2. Sarah posted over on her family-friendly blog called Dinner With Crayons to share her recipe for Pulled Pork Noodles with Savoy Cabbage - bang on season and super-speedy, thank you!
3. The Walthamstow Foodies joined in, too this month, with a seasonal recipe for Oven-Baked Celeriac and Swede Croquettes – which are also vegan.
4. Whilst Bintu over at Recipes from a Pantry linked up her beautiful and zingy Citrus Salad.
5. Next, a lovely entry from the very clever Ceri at Natural Kitchen Adventures who made a gluten-friendly Celeriac and Parsnip Sesame Slaw - interestingly, celeriac is known as celery root in the USA.

19. Vanesther over at Bangers and Mash joined in with her recipe for Braised Pig Cheeks with Carrot and Parsnip Mash – amazing comfort food and I loved the photo, too.
20. And last but by no means least, Lucy at her bright and beautiful blog Super Golden Bakes made a stunning Kedgeree - an easy midweek meal served with a fresh tomato sauce.
And the winner is…..it was a tough choice…but Alida over at My Little Italian Kitchen really captured our attention and our taste buds with her Carnivale-inspired Sicilian Orange Cake (entry 17) – thank you! I’ll be posting you a copy of Season to Season by Sophie Dahl.
