HFG loves a picnic! During these warmer months, you’ll often find us sitting under a tree together on a rug at lunchtime sharing a feast of healthy goodies while enjoying the sunshine.

My son-in-law is a nurse, so he’s very busy — the quick 5pm Panic recipes, and the article on ‘10 Top Ways to Save Time in the Kitchen’ will certainly be of great help to them both! Hazel Mann, Bunbury WA Lazy days Your Lazy Summer Nights recipes from the January issue of HFG were just what I needed to help me through the coming months. I don’t enjoy cooking — and in summer I like it a lot less! These recipes are so fast and easy, I can throw them together and spend more…
