Hosting Simple and in Season for the completely lush Ren Behan is both a huge honour and a huge undertaking! It’s an insanely popular event that attracts a bumper crop of entries. But ultimately it’s a fabulous way to check out a bevy of beautiful food blogs, some familiar some new to me and see what everyone’s been cooking up.
Take some time to make yourself a nice drink and relax while you scroll through these delicious seasonal treats from the world of food bloggers:
