Zucchini and haloumi fritters.

Fun no-fuss food such as grilled Japanese beef, junior pikelets and honey-banana cupcakes will get the whole family cooking (and eating).

Midweek cooking is super easy with our great tuna salad using pantry staples and fluffy zucchini and haloumi fritters.

On the weekend, a Middle Eastern inspired barbecue feast features lamb cutlets drizzled with pomegranate molasses and grilled peaches with a sticky rosewater syrup.

On Sunday, whip up some mini frittatas for brunch and fire up the barbie for a dinner of salmon with tahini and herbs.
