Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Peanut crunch slice

    • Foodycat on August 10, 2018

      Very simple, and not as sweet as you would imagine. I used an organic brown rice cereal instead of old skool rice bubbles and I think it lost its crunch, but the peanuts made up for it.

    • e_ballad on October 14, 2018

      I also lost the crunch-factor, even using the rice bubbles, which resulted in them tasting a little stale in this cooked slice.

  • Berry trifle

    • e_ballad on October 26, 2018

      A very easy trifle to put together. Wasn’t expecting it to be quite so citrusy, but enjoyed this against the sweetness of the berries.

  • Blueberry bran muffins

    • e_ballad on October 13, 2018

      The flavour was great, though we weren’t too taken with the texture of these muffins.

  • Chocolate chippy cake

    • e_ballad on July 05, 2021

      Delicious. I didn’t make the icing, but I don’t think it was lacking as a result.

There’s so much to celebrate in summer, and Annabel has all the inspiration you’ll need to barbecue, picnic and party in style.

Her new spring / summer annual A Free Range Life: Celebrate Summer! brings together more than 100 eating and drinking ideas for every summer occasion for only $24.95.

“I want summer to be easy for people,” says Annabel. “So I tried to imagine all the occasions they might be needing to cook for, and do all the thinking for them. It’s a celebration of fresh summer produce, prepared simply so you’ll have plenty of time to relax and party.”

Planning a barbecue? Choose one of Annabel’s delicious grill and salad combos, or spice up your summer with something new like fiery sriracha beef, jerk chicken or banh mi burgers.

Getting your workmates over for end-of-year drinks? Wow them with Annabel’s Mexican-inspired nibbles and cocktails, including the perfect margarita and spicy meatballs.

Hosting Christmas lunch? Annabel’s special-occasion menu features all the recipes you’re looking for, including updates of the Kiwi classics – turkey, ham, pavlova and trifle.

At the forefront of current food trends, Celebrate Summer offers something for everyone, with recipes for a raw vegan cheesecake, egg-free mayonnaise and gluten-free goodies.

This vibrant new annual builds on the overwhelming success of Annabel’s four previous seasonal publications, which have delighted home cooks with their on-trend content, no-fail recipes and beautiful photography and design.

The annual features Annabel’s tips for a stress-free menu and matching food with drinks, her foodie’s guide to San Francisco and step-by-step instructions for making the hottest garden craze – kokedama bonsai balls – and prettying up your meals with edible petals. It’s supported by shopping lists, how-to instructions, blogs and videos on Annabel’s website.
