On our first days of summer holiday I have jumped right in and started cooking. Some sort of inspirational jolt or perhaps just wanting to get started with the easy going pace of summer meals and the free time to bake with my daughter. Certainly these last few weeks have been chaotic with end of school year festivities and mapping out the next 8 weeks of things to do and places to go. We have been racing and now it's time to chill out and enjoy life at a quieter more relaxed pace. In the tropics we are never short of every type of banana imaginable, so we started with that ; ). Hello summer, we love you!
