Over the last few weeks I have been sharing deliciously simple recipes that celebrate the end of summer, on my Hands on Kitchen blog at Yummy Mummy Club. When I think of the end of summer I think of peaches, tomatoes, cucumbers and so much more. All the warmth of the summer has been fed into so many delicious fruits and vegetables. It is time to find out how to best use everything that is filling the farmers’ market tables right now.
