The beginning of a new month brings a fresh round-up of recipes from my Simple and in Season food blogger link-up, so if you’re looking for cosy meal ideas, comforting desserts or something dinnerpartylicious to impress your friends with, you’ve come to the right place. If you’ve not heard of Simple and in Season before, it’s a link-up for food bloggers to celebrate cooking with seasonal ingredients. It’s a great way to discover what’s perfect to eat right now and for getting ideas for new things to try. If you’re stuck in a recipe rut, it’s fantastic for a spot of inspiration. Let’s kick off with this gorgeous dessert. This Orange & Lime Pie from The Gluten Free Alchemist sounds exactly like my kind of pudding. A sharp tang from the citrus curd filling, sitting perfectly under the crunchy sweet meringue topping. Get the recipe here
The ProWare Kitchen blog have been making the most of cooking with Game with their Autumn Venison & Pheasant Stew. Get the recipe here This plate of green gorgeousness is Prawn & Cashew Courgetti from Roast Chicken and a Country Walk. It’s just the kind of supper I love to make on a weeknight, so I’ll definitely be giving this one a whirl. The boys loved courgetti when I tried it out on them before.

The crispy potato topping has properly got my appetite interested! Get the recipe here Get a taste of Caribbean cooking with this Dominican Sweet Potato Cake from The Baking Explorer.

Join in with Simple and in Season for November!
Simple and in Season is a monthly food blogging event where you are invited to link up any of your seasonal recipe posts – anywhere in the world! Join a thriving community of home cooks who love to share their seasonal creations. Each month, there will be a round-up of all the entries.
- All you have to do is come up with a dish using any seasonal produce you like (savoury or sweet) post it on your blog, add a link to this post mentioning Simple and in Season and linking to www.feedingboys.co.uk and then manually add the link to your post in the box on each month’s launch page (click the badge on my Blog sidebar to find the current host)
- The linky will close on the 30th and a round up post featuring all the recipes entered will be posted at the beginning of each new month.
- You can take inspiration from anywhere – adapt a recipe from your favourite cookbook, try something from a magazine, make up your own creation or share a family favourite. The usual rules apply when using someone else’s recipe, please either get permission from the author to post it or adapt it in some way stating how/why you’ve changed it.
- Include any seasonal produce you fancy including fruit, veg, herbs, meat or fish.
- Link as many recipes as you like. You can link posts entered into other blog events or carnivals as long as it involves a seasonal food item (and fits in with their rules).
- The linky-up is open to anyone, anywhere, and although it will be nice to feature as much British produce as possible, it will be interesting to see what’s in season elsewhere.
- By entering your link, you are giving me permission to add your photograph to the round-up. I will link back directly to your post when I include you.
- If you have questions or problems, email me or leave me a comment in the comment box at the bottom of the post.
- If you are on Twitter or Instagram, tweet your link/photo adding the hashtag #simpleandinseason or add me @cookingkt and I will re-tweet it.
