Pork Kebab & Apple Infused Salad

These pork kebabs are very lean and tender. The spice goes so well with the cool crisp salad. You can change the pork to chicken if you prefer. Or use grilled vegetables if you want to go vegetarian.

Poached Pear & Blue Cheese Salad

Anyone who knows me knows I’m cheese mad. I love all kinds, especially the amazing selection we have here in Ireland. Cashel Blue is one of my favourite blue cheeses. The combination of flavours here match so well they have to be tried to be believed. This will make a fantastic snack with a good […]

Prawn Cocktail

Prawn cocktail is another classic salad that is really easy to throw together. It’s one you don’t see so often anymore which is such a shame as when made properly it is a great salad or starter. You can use the really small prawns which are called Boston prawns or a bigger prawn like a […]

Chinese Salad & BBQ Pork Belly

Out of all the salads I made for this website over the past couple of weeks this was everyone’s favourite. In fact, some said it was the best dish I have ever made for them. I tend to agree, it’s delicious. It takes a bit of effort and time but it’s well worth it. Change […]

You can make this in minutes and cook it in a pot or your slow cooker. I include methods for each below. I also included 2 ways to cook the smoked rashers, one gives more flavour but is more time consuming and costs more to make due to the use of your oven. It is […]

This is one for those of you who are on a gluten free diet. It uses Gram Flour instead of plain flour. Gram Flour is made from Chickpeas and can be found in some supermarkets, health food stores and Asian stores. It makes a wonderful starter to any meal but works especially well if planning […]

Tandoori Chicken Salad

I don’t post many salad recipes as I live alone and I’m not a big fan of salads so most would go to waste if I were to make them. This one is different, it is so so tasty and healthy which is great. I made a lovely mint and Greek yoghurt dressing to go […]

Curried Parsnip Soup (Gluten Free)

I made this for lunch recently and everyone loved it even my friends kids. It is an unusual soup that is well worth making esp as it is really quick and cheap to make, it took me 20 minutes from start to finish and cost less than €4 for 2 litres. You can use a spicy […]

Chicken & Vegetable Soup (Gluten Free)

I made this using my own homemade chicken stock which always makes a soup so much better. It adds a lovely flavour to any soup esp if you use the bones from a roast chicken to make it. You can choose to add any veg you like though I wouldn’t use cabbage instead I would […]
