Open-Face Sandwiches - Open-face sandwiches are basically an ordinary sandwich without the top slice cover. The bottom slice of bread is your canvas and whatever you place on top is your art; so get creative! You can’t go wrong with an avocado rose sandwich with a light drizzle of olive oil and lemon zest!

Deep-filled Wraps - Nothing is more disappointing than a wrap more tortilla than meat and salad! Be generous and load it up! A Cooking with Caz favourite is this spicy barbeque chicken wrap! Use dark meat – it’s juicier.

Juicy Chicken Wings - If you are planning ahead, marinate some chicken wings a day in advance in either a jerk paste or BBQ marinade. Top those bad boys with a pineapple salsa and prepare for the biggest flavour party for your taste buds!

Rice noodle stir-fry salad - Rice noodles are perfect and salads! They’re light and versatile… they complement more or less anything you add to them so get creative! `Try this – add crab meat, a plethora of of seasoning and top with prawns and balsamic vinegar salad pearls!

Crunch Red Slaw - What’s a picnic without a good creamy coleslaw… simply a gathering. Coleslaw is a picnic classic and a must have. Substitute the ordinary white savoury cabbage with the red cabbage to give it some colour!

Hummus and Dips - Store bought hummus has nothing on a homemade hummus! Get yourself some chick peas, tahini, garlic and olive oil then blend baby blend!

Refreshing Pink Lemonade - Lemonade is great but Pink Lemonade … Amazing! Transform the classic drink with only 3 ingredients – Watermelon, grenadine and mint! A cheeky shot of gin (or 2) for the ultimate summer cocktail!
