This collection of Sides, Salads & Desserts has been put together from the cream of the crop submissions to the Cook Blog Share community link up. There are classics, new ideas and a whole host of fruity desserts. I’ve even included some bonus fruity cocktails!

It’s been rather a rush to put together this post at the last minute and I had forgotten just how much fun it is. All of the recipes featured have been submitted by follow food writers and it is always exciting to browse them and pick the best of the best to feature!
I am always a little bit extra and I can never just pick and stick with one theme so I’ve done my usual and picked a few themes. The first is summer sides and salads. From coleslaw and potato salad to a Greek salad and a beautiful walnut bread, there is something for everyone.
Next I had to include some desserts. I have such a sweet tooth I can never resist! Being summer most of the recipes liked up are berry based but I couldn’t resist throwing in a homemade version of a chocolate classic and a plum jam too.
And there is always room for a couple of cocktails right?!
So What’s New at Feast Glorious Feast?
I’ve just published my new recipe for French Silk Pie. It’s not a well known dessert here in the UK despite being super popular over in the US and I am on a one woman mission to promote this chocolate mousse like tart!
I’ve also recently published my Quick & Easy Peach Curd and Peach Curd Tarts recipes. These obviously go hand in hand and make the most of my American Pie Pastry recipe which is also new. Its like a rough puff pastry made with big chunks of butter and is super delicious.
What is #CookBlogShare?
CookBlogShare is a community for food bloggers to share recipes and foodie posts and generally support the food blogging community. The community is centred around the #CookBlogShare linky.
It is a wonderful way for a wide range of food writers, recipe creators and bloggers to come together and share each other’s recipes.
The linky is now hosted regularly by Sisley from Sew White & myself, with additional guest hosts. I help out in the Facebook Group too. New members are always welcome to join so make sure you invite your other food blogger friends!
Each week the host chooses a selection of recipes which have been submitted during the previous week to showcase. This time I’ve chosen some fab summer sides and sweet treats to share with you.
Summer Sides & Salads
There were so many recipes to choose from the linky which lasted for 2 weeks that it was a struggle to narrow it down. But here are a selection of sides and salads that are perfect for warmer months!
I couldn’t resist including some lovely summer desserts. Most use the summer crop of fruit and berries but I couldn’t resist sneaking in a chocolatey snack and an easy preserve too.
Something for the Weekend?
It wouldn’t be summer without a few cheeky cocktails. Both of these options from Sew White sound delicious and just that little bit different!
