Wow!! What an amazing harvest! There is just so much to Cook! Where to start?

Hmm … I can definitely taste a whole heap of cassarole and baked dishes with all the root vegetables available. Try Cooking Pot’s Lemon Potatoes or Vegetarian Lasagne, and, You will never go wrong with a Potato-crusted, Spinach and 3 Cheese Pie!

This is definitely the time to start baking! Bake and freeze for later! Sometimes I find that 1 nights’ cooking is enough for 3 dinners or lunches. Casseroles, pies, bakes can be refridgerated for the following night or frozen and so many Vegetarian, Vegan and Meat variations to choose from. Just choose your preference when searching for a recipe on the App. Chicken and Leek Quiches come to mind.

Taste the difference of your food when the fresh produce you use is in season and better still Organic and the only thing that tops that is Home-grown! I’m salivating already and we haven’t even scratched the surface of the recipes available on Cooking Pot the iPhone App!!

Ok! Let’s take a peek at the fruit before this article gets too long. Hmm… I can taste a whole lot of different crumbles with all the Apples and Rhubarb. Don’t worry about the wheat and sugar when you can substitute oats and a bit of honey or maple syrup and end up with a healthier crumble. On the other hand The Upside-Down Mandarin Round is one of my favourites! The lemons are another ingredient which stand out and make yummy Lemon Butter or salad dressing and the Avocados make a divine Raw Chocolate Cake.
