My favorite recipe has to be my Grandmothers Pineapple upside down cake. She used to make it for me all the time when we were kids. Me and my cousin always got to lick the bowl. After we cleaned up our kitchen mess we would go outside to play in the field and miraculously my grandmother would have the cake done sitting on a little paper doily in our lazy Susan of a cake stand. My grandmother always taught us ways to make cakes for cheap.

My favorite summer recipe is corn cakes with salsa. I just made this the other day and it was perfect for the hot summer days!

I have to go with a classic milkshake. Chocolate Ice Cream , Chocolate syrup, Chocolate milk, And a dash of whipped cream is the perfect summer snack!

A good caprese salad is yummy all summer long. Thick slices of mozzarella (or even the herb marinated balls), ripened tomatoes and fresh basil make a perfect mix. I like balsamic dressing reduced to a glaze... its not very original but always classic and delicious!

Oh, when it's hot, I don't really eat much, but when I do, it must be some refreshing salads and when i feel fancy, I love to eat cold, but a little melted ice cream! Nom,nom,nom...Happy But I can't think of any recipe really, we make salads from any vegetables we have in our house or garden at that moment,so the salads turn out different every time we make them!

My favorite is beer battered fish (fish has to be freshly caught.. Yay camping!), with a side of fresh salad and a tall glass of beer on the side.. Yummy comfort food.

Blueberry smoothies are the way to go! All you need is a fruity frozen yogurt (like raspberry), frozen Canadian wild blueberries, and a blender! Delicious!

My favourite recipe for a hot summer day is a salad made of rocket, melon (honeydew, water, cantaloup) or pear, mozzarella and boiled ham which is freshly roasted in a pan. You can take the oil from roasting to put into the salad and just add some pepper, salt and balsamic vinegar. That tastes great!

My mum used to put two scoops of lemon sorbet in a glass, add some mint leaves and fill it all up with ginger ale. That's my favourite thing on a hot day <3

I like to sit under a sun umbrella and enjoy a classic British tea, scones, little cakes, cucumber sandwiches (with the crusts cut off) a lovely Victoria sponge all washed down with lashings of tea in china cups. Maybe followed by some strawberries and cream and a glass or two of champagne as the sun goes down....

My favourite recipe to make my family is a salad with cucumber, lettuce, rocket, cherry tomotoes etc.. But to also add delicious strawberrys, crunchy apples and plump sultanas. Add a few slices of mature cheddar and fruit cheeses to compliment.
A little blue cheese dressing drizzled on the top.
