This is my absolute go to sauce for barbecuing. I found it in a leaflet barbecue book in 1998. I may have changed it along the way, but the basics are still the same. Where would be all be without a good bbq sauce? Well, don't find out. Instead of reaching for the bottle next time you are standing at the grill, make this instead. Never disappoints and is great on chicken pork and beef.
Summer is a great time to make the most of local produce. Depending on where you live and the growing season, the produce varies. I gotta say, here in southern Spain there is always a growing season for something. I do believe we are spoilt for choices, freshness and prices. That's not a complaint. So, when it comes to cooking fresh and affordable dishes, it's not diffiucult. This dish came about because there was an abundance of zucchini and eggplant in the supermarket at a super low cost. When you can buy two large zucchini two large eggplants for a mere 1,20 euros,you realize that life is good. I spiced them up a bit and voilà, a side dish in no time.
Quote of the day, "This is the best bruschetta you have ever made." By the husband. I don't disagree. Make these delicious little bites of the Mediterranean the next time you are having friends around of just chilling yourself. The combination of roasted cherry tomatoes, Spanish cured cheese and balsamic vinegar is classically beautiful. Yes, beautiful!

I am a firm believer that there is no end to what you can put in a wrap. Just about anything, and I mean anything, goes. I like them hot or cold. Filled with veggies, chicken, meat or fish. Like I said anything. From fajitas, quesadilla, sandwich wraps, tacos, enchiladas, burritos, the list is just simply endless of what you can do with the flour or corn tortilla.
They are also a great way to use up leftovers, which was how these wraps came about. I have to say they were mighty good and I am filing them in favourites for the future. Take a look!
