20170320_203049

Mushroom, Roasted Garlic, Smoked Pancetta & Parmesan Soup

I came up with this while laying in bed struggling to sleep one night. I was so intrigued by the idea I had to make it straight away, so I went down to my kitchen at 2am to make it. I am really happy that I did as the end result was a fantastic soup […]

20160712_192218

Zesty Thai Beef Curry (Gluten Free)

This isn’t made to any original Thai recipe, it is one I made up myself so I hope you enjoy it as much as myself and my dinner guests did. It’s a really fragrant and zesty curry due to the addition of the lime in the paste. I used lean stir fry beef strips though […]

20151202_212844

Chicken Korma

I am a big fan of a good Indian curry esp a nice korma. I simplified this recipe so that you can easily make it at home with ingredients you can find in most supermarkets. I live in the sticks so if I can get them then anyone can.  Like most of my curry dishes […]

20160618_120118

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 […]

Chinese Fakeaway

Chicken Burgers with Chilli, Lime & Coriander

I love the flavours of this burger, they are so refreshing and go down a treat with a cold beer on a hot day. Finish them off with a little squeeze of lime juice to give them a zesty kick which goes perfectly with the chilli and coriander. You can choose to serve the chicken […]

20170508_215512

Indian Coconut Lamb Curry

As usual this is extremely easy to make especially if you use your slow cooker. You will find Coleman’s mustard powder in most supermarkets apart from Lidl and Aldi.

Bacon and Mustard sauce

Bacon Steaks, Mustard Cream & Sauté Cabbage

An upmarket Bacon and Cabbage with a delicious mustard cream that is sure to keep the family happy or the guests impressed. Serve it anytime though best as a Sunday lunch or similar.  

20150729_010319

Honey Roasted Duck

Succulent Duck with a crispy honey glazed skin cooked to perfection is great in so many recipes. My personal favourite are the many Asian dishes that can easily be made once you have the Duck roasted. After I post this I will make two dishes out of one Duck, both really simple and extremely tasty. […]

Chicken Sundried Tomatoes

Fillet of Chicken with Italian Vegetables and Sundried Tomatoes

This is one of 4 chicken dishes I made from one pack of chicken to show that you can make a different dish for everyone in the house with very little effort. You will find, Breaded Chicken with Ham and Cheese here this was really popular with adults and kids, I must admit, I really enjoyed it […]

20150416_175059(0)

Chicken Burritos

This is such a great family or party dish, it is simple to make and one that has always proven very popular. You can choose to follow my recipe and make your own burrito spice mix or use a packet of Old El Paso if you prefer.

f

Fillet of Beef in Hot Garlic

This is one of my personal favourites. It is something I tend to order if ordering a take away. I stopped ordering the fillet of beef version as most times it wasn’t fillet steak as stated on the menu, so I ended up getting big slices of chewy beef instead of the melt in the […]

20160224_143448(1)

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork (Oven method included)

You have asked me for many recipes since I started my website and Facebook Page, this is the one you have requested more than any other so here it finally is. I have fine tuned my recipe so it is very easy for you to make at home using your slow cooker or oven. If […]

20160923_183226

Liam’s Thai Chicken or Fish Curry

I love to make and eat Thai food. It is so fresh and filled with wonderful flavours like ginger, garlic, coriander, lemongrass and loads more. I have covered most of the Thai recipes we all know from a Thai red curry to a Massaman curry and even Tom Yum Soup which is a personal favourite. […]

20170215_214430

Beef & Ricotta Meatballs with Tomato Sauce

I never was a fan of meatballs, I found them to be mostly bland and dry when I tried them. I spent a lot of my earlier career working in Italian restaurants and found they were the same even then. So I came up with this recipe while working as head chef in a little restaurant […]

20150629_205930

Spicy Lamb Koftas

These Turkish Skewer Lamb Mince Kebabs can be thrown together in a matter of minutes. They are great for the BBQ, party or even a family dinner. They are also great for a packed lunch as they can be taken off the skewers and served with a nice dip or even ketchup if that is […]

20160124_192047(1)

Roast Rack of Pork

This dish is absolutely delicious with the White Pudding and Apple stuffing from page. Make the stuffing as per the instructions and place underneath the pork for the last hour of cooking. This means the meat juices will be absorbed by the stuffing which will give the stuffing a wonderful flavour. Just like my Roast […]

20160627_221850

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 […]

20160917_194659

Braised Steak in Mushroom Sauce

Comfort food at it’s best. Braised steak is amazing when cooked properly. The meat melts in your mouth and is full of flavour from the mushroom sauce it is braised in. You can make this in your slow cooker or the oven. I made it in the oven but only because I moved and don’t […]

BordBiaLogo

Bord Bia – Roast Lamb with Tapenade & Spring Onions

Sunday lunch in my mums was always such a treat, she loved lamb and so each sunday she used cook a leg of lamb for the family. She always did it the same way, not that we complained as she was a master at bringing out the best flavours in any dish esp a lamb […]

Beef Goulash Soup Recipe

Hearty Beef Goulash Soup

This is a really hearty soup that’s cheap to make and that can be thrown together in a few minutes. It’s perfect for a cold winter’s day or even a school or work lunch.  

20150802_g213707

The Perfect Roast Chicken

Roast Chicken is one of those dishes that almost everyone loves. You can easily pick a chicken up for under €5 in any supermarket or butcher these days. This is great for a Sunday roast though just as good as a midweek meal. It is also great for sandwiches or remove the meat and add […]

20180611_204308-1000x562

Chicken Gyros

Chicken Gyros is a Greek dish made by layering marinaded chicken over a skewer and then grilling or roasting it. You then slice down lengthways so you have little pieces of delicious  chicken to fill a pitta bread along with a famous Greek sauce made from yogurt called tzatziki. It really is very simple to […]

20150802_143643(1)

Chicken & Black Bean Sauce

So here it is by very popular demand. it seems to be a massive favourite of a lot of people so it was a big challenge to create an easy to follow recipe that you can make at home. Of course getting it to taste great and authentic would be impossible without fermented black beans. […]

20180518_163724-1000x562

Chicken, Cheddar & Spring Onion Sandwich Spread

As many of you know I’m a big cheese fan so you won’t be surprised to know this is one of my favourites. I prefer it with mayonnaise but made this one with creme fraishe. You can use either, I’ll include each in the recipe. This goes great with in wrap, sandwich or on an […]

20160308_192700(1)

Shepherd’s Pie

This is my take on a classic shepherd’s pie. I change the topping to make it quicker and easier to make for days when I am too busy to make a pot of mash, though if I am honest, I mainly do it to cut down on the washing up, which I hate doing. The […]

20170405_212749

Nasi Goreng

This really popular dish is well worth making. The flavours are fantastic and it is fairly easy to make. It is cheap if you leave the prawns out and use all chicken instead. It makes a great family dinner especially midweek when the pennies can be tight. It will also impress friends and family if […]

20160112_160932(1)

Beef Cannelloni

THIS is a pretty simple dish to make and one I am sure you and your family will love. You can finely chop a carrot or two and hide them in the meat sauce or do as I did and use a pepper. The tubes are pretty easy to fill if you allow the meat sauce […]

20160826_192728

Tasty Turkey Bites

This is one Aine made for her family. I was lucky enough to be there the day she made them as they really are seriously good. They are a healthy family dinner and are fairly inexpensive and easy to make. You can even prepare them the night before then cook them when the next day […]

Roast Goose

Geese are free range, spending most of their lives grazing on grass in the open fields. They are a hardy bird with a rich flavour and they’re easier to cook than turkeys. We ate geese here in Ireland for centuries, long before we had ever heard of a turkey. In the earlier half of the […]

20180419_193536-1000x562

Chicken, Bacon & Mushroom Pie – gluten free

This is one of those oh so easy dishes to make and another than can be made in bulk and frozen for when needed. The sauce in this is the same sauce as I made for my Chicken Lasagna, in fact I made this at the same time as I made the lasagna which meant […]

20170108_000718

Singapore Noodles

I made this dish for some staff at work once and my sous (second) chef hounded me for the recipe ever since. We met a while back, not long after we published my first book, the first thing he asked me was if the recipe for my Singapore noodles was in the book. He was disappointed to […]

Chicken and Mushroom Pie

Chicken & Mushroom Pie

If you asked me to choose my favourite dish my response would be, Pie any pie. This comes from my mum who used to make the most amazing mince tart, which was my all time favourite. I’ve always made fantastic shortcrust pastry, a skill I learnt from my mum. To me, no other shortcrust pastry […]

Mexican-Chicken

Mexican Chicken filled Baked Sweet Potato – Gluten Free

This is another amazing dinner made from a simple paste that can be made in minutes. There is no oil, salt (optional stock cube), sugar or flour added. In fact it is made from mostly blended vegetables. Change the chicken to any fish or prawns if you prefer. You can also use your favorite veggies […]

Ham Salad

Baked Mustard Glazed Ham Salad

This is one of the first dishes I cooked for my Facebook Page, so please forgive the photos and please don’t judge the dish by them. It really is a great dish, the flavours are amazing and it takes very little effort to make. The salad potatoes really make this dish when done with the […]

20150810_155917

Chicken & Smoked Bacon Slice

Comfort food doesn’t get much better than this, it is rich and creamy and tastes amazing. I made this today for a photoshoot. Mick, the photographer is known as a very picky eater who wouldn’t touch a pepper. He watched me make this while also taking photos of each step. When it was ready, he […]

Lamb-Casserole

Slow Cooker Lamb Casserole

This casserole is extremely easy to make and only uses 6 easy to find ingredients and some water. You can choose to use chicken, if you do cook the sauce, without the chicken, then add the chicken breasts, 1 per person, for the last 1.5 hours on high or 3 on low.

Pot Roast

Pot Roast

A pot roast is one of those things many have heard of but never tried. It is such a shame that it isn’t more popular as it really is amazing and a great way to cook roast cuts that wouldn’t be as tender as the more expensive cuts like Rib or Sirloin. Round roast is […]

Untitled design (58)

Sage & Onion Stuffing

WE all love a good stuffing, be in in a sandwich or with the Sunday roast. This one is very easy to make and can be made in a matter of a few minutes. I strongly advise making your breadcrumbs if you have a blender or food processor as they are a fraction of the price. […]

IMG_1673b

Peppered Steak Puff Pastry Slice

This really popular dish is great for a quick Sunday Lunch, make one large one  by cutting the pastry lengthwise then portion at the dinner table  or make them smaller and have for a midweek lunch. VEGETARIANS can change the steak for roasted peppers, spring onion and mushrooms and also swap the beef stock with […]

20151123_200219

Chicken Pakora – Gluten free

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 […]

Chicken Ham and Cheese

Breaded Chicken with Ham & Cheese

This Chicken Dish is great for all the family and especially loved by kids. Double coating the chicken in breadcrumbs ensures the cheese doesn’t drip out when cooking.

Chicken Kiev

Yuk Sung Recipe

Chinese Yuk Sung Recipe

If you are on a health kick or a diet then Yuk Sung is the dish for you, it is extremely quick to make and very healthy.  Of course it also tastes great. I choose to make it with turkey mince as it was on offer but you can choose minced chicken, prawns or pork […]

Mughlai Karahi Gosht – North Indian Lamb Curry

I am sure you are all too familiar with days of being rushed off your feet, barely a minute to spare, being pulled from one drama to the next, the never ending cries of MAMMY or DADDY that on most days melt your heart but on this day melts your brain instead. It’s days like […]

Coconut, Ginger & Chilli Soup with Grilled Chicken & Prawn

It is hard to believe that a soup like the one here can be made in a matter of minutes with zero cooking skills or experience required. This is definately the case here. All you need is a food processor or if you want to you can even use a store bought curry paste like […]

20170322_175435

Kung Pao Chicken

Kung Pao Chicken hails from the Szechuan region of china and is a slightly sweet and sour dish with loads of spice. Though you can make it as mild or hot as you like, it really is at it’s best when nice and spicy. Ideally it uses Szechuan or rose peppers rather than black pepper […]

20160223_203820(3)

Crispy Hoisin Pork Belly

This really simple dish is well worth making, I love the crispiness of the pork belly combined with the hoisin sauce and ginger. Lidl do pork belly strips which is what I used here. They are less than €3 a pack which is great value, they don’t go far when left in strips so cut […]

Chicken Fajita Sandwich Filler

Chicken, Smoked Bacon & Mushroom Lasagna
