Simple and in Season June Event Round Up (Part Two)

Here I am back with Part Two of June’s Simple and in Season – you can see the first 27 entries here. I’ll jump straight in as there are so many lovely posts and recipes to share.

The winner of June’s round who will receive a copy of The Green Kitchen is Alida at My Little Italian Kitchen for her Apricot Tarte Tatin – scroll down to see!

Simple and in Season is taking a little summer break. I will be stepping back a little, too, so that we can all rest a little and enjoy the sunshine and the school holidays. I hope to start it up again in September. Many thanks for your support!
