I sincerely hope the weather has come to the party this Labour Day and that you are venturing outdoors, making more use of our barbecue and picnic recipe collections on bite.co.nz than having to stay in, sheltering from the rain and announcing it a baking day.
If it is a baking day, Ray's bread dough is a beauty. It's an easy no-knead recipe that you can bake into bread or a butternut and feta stuffed pie for lunch; Turkish style lamb pies for dinner and/or sugar rolls for afternoon tea.
While waiting for the dough to rise, whip up a coco-nutty granola slice and you have lunchbox snacks sorted for the week.
Meanwhile, forget about that salad you'd planned to serve with the barbecue - transform your lettuce into something altogether more exciting by cooking it in one of Warren Elwin's dishes. Rain, schmain, today's adventures were made all the better for it.
