Spicy Turkey & Vegetable stew

Turkey mince is something that’s easy to find in supermarkets and it’s pretty cheap to buy. It’s also a really lean meat so it’s great for anyone who, like me, tries to eat healthily most of the time. This dish is jam packed with vegetables and proteins from the chickpeas and beans. I have this […]

Lamb Rogan Josh

Lamb Rogan Josh

This curry is really simple to make so please don’t feel daunted by all the ingredients. Make sure you marinade the lamb the night before to get the best flavor. It really does make a big difference Take your time and follow the simple method to make it for your friends and family, I guarantee, […]

Crispy Shredded Chicken Recipe

Crispy Shredded Chicken with Chilli & Honey Sauce

The chicken in this crispy shredded chicken recipe can be used as a base for many different dishes. One of the best known is Salt and Chilli Chicken which you will find the recipe for here. The chilli and honey sauce coats the chicken rather than being a wet sauce that flows around your plate. Given […]

20150802_191117

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. […]

Marinaded Pork Chopc

Marinaded Pork Chops

I choose to serve these with one of my favourite Salads, esp when cooked on the BBQ on a nice summers day. For those days when it’s not so sunny and you crave comfort food then go with Creamy Mash, some nice veg and a bit of Bisto Gravy or a nice Mushroom Sauce goes great […]

20170217_212016

Chinese Beef or Chicken in Black Pepper Sauce

One of my favourite Chinese dishes this is made similar to how you will get it in Hong Kong rather that the msg filled version most people are used to here in Ireland. The addition of the honey means the sauce coats the beef with a lovely stick sauce that will make your mouth water. […]

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 […]

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 […]

20180525_191932-1000x562

Crispy Sweet & Sour Chicken

I asked if people on our Facebook page wanted this recipe. The answer was a definate yes from a lot of people. The one thing I did take note of was how a few mentioned they found many, especially packet sweet and sour sauces, contain an awful lot of sugar. This made me think about […]

Poached Chicken Filler

Poached Chicken Fillet

If you want something that is easy to make, healthy and very very tasty then this is the dish for you. I love it with a drizzle of hand pressed olive oil given to me by an Italian friend. I infused the oil with smoked garlic cloves, dried chili and wild rosemary from my own […]

Meatballs

Italian Meatballs

A real family favourite and inexpensive to make, great for making in bulk and freezing esp when one of the stores has a good quality mince on offer. You can change the meat to minced pork or lamb. Half pork and half beef mince is also great. You can really make the mince go further […]

20150331_213824(0)

Basic Chicken Curry (Chinese style)

If you are a chinese curry fan then this one is for you. The one you get in most chinese take aways is from a packet with artificial flavouring so its not exactly the same but very close and in my opinion far better. It’s also way cheaper, so instead of paying €4 for a […]

20180518_062304-1000x562

Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Bake

Roast chicken and Broccoli in a rich cheese sauce with your favourite pasta, this is sure to appeal to the majority of families, especially children. It’s fairly easy to make though does have a few elements that will take time. Believe me, its well worth the effort. If roasting a chicken for this dish then […]

IMG_2010

Chicken Curry (chip shop style)

So many of you asked me for a simple and quick chicken curry, this is one of two I made. This one is for those who love to cook but want something quick. This one uses almost the same base as the Basic Chicken Curry Recipe, the addition of a few extra herbs and spices […]

20170330_173843

Mongolian Beef – Slow or Pressure Cooker

This is one of those dishes someone made up for western tastes as there is no such dish in Mongolia nor is there one in China. It isn’t one often seen in Ireland either and when you do see it, it isn’t anything like the original version. It is big in American – Chinese restaurants […]

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 […]

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 […]

20160105_002846(0)(1)

Chicken Jalfrezi

I really love a good curry esp a healthy one like this.  Like all of my recipes you will find the ingredients in most supermarkets or stores. This is probably one of the easiest Indian curries you will ever make. To ensure it is gluten free make sure to check the stock cube and spices […]

Roast Beef

The Perfect Roast Beef & Roast Gravy

Sunday Roast is one of my favourite meals to cook and nothing says Sunday Roast better than a good joint of Roast Beef I used Rib Roast which is my favourite. I wanted to cook it on the bone but couldn’t get it. If you want a rib roast on the bone speak with your […]

20160824_191519

Chicken & Chorizo Casserole – Slow Cooker or Oven

Sometimes the best meals are the cheapers, especially when it comes to using cheaper cuts of meat like chicken drumsticks and thighs. Any meat cooked on the bone will always have a far better flavour due to the flavour the bones give to the dish when cooking. This is a great one for a midweek […]

20160625_201019

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 […]

20150809_183623

Beef Curry (slow cooker)

This curry has chunks of melt in the mouth beef in a rich homemade curry sauce that’s bursting with flavour. It can be put together in a few minutes then left to simmer away in the slow cooker or a pot on the stove. I tried to make this using as few ingredients as possible […]

20161001_200127

Beef Curry Puff Pastry Slice

This is such a simple curry to make. I used curry powder to make it even easier on you to make at home. There is noting wrong with using a curry powder, some are great. I used Aldi’s medium curry powder to make this and was delighted with it. If you don’t want to make […]

creamy pasta

Creamy Chicken and Vegetable Pasta

This is a really simply, quick and tasty dish to make and it’s one that our whole family loves. It’s made with low fat creme fraiche too, so it’s not as calorific as it would be if you used cream. If you’re not concerned with things like carb intake, serve it with home made garlic […]

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 […]

20150620_224548

Minced Beef and Onion Pie, Cashel Blue Infused Pastry

The Cashel Blue Cheese pastry in this pie takes it to a whole new level, it is hard to roll without it breaking but it is forgiving and can easily be patched together if needed. Everyone loves a nice pie, esp me as it brings back some great memories of when I was a kid […]

FlmXvqlD-nI_Full-1000x562

Homemade Smoked Bacon & Cheese Burgers

This is one of the first recipes I posted and the one dish that is responsible for me posting my recipes online in the first place. Use the cheaper mince with the higher fat content to make them as it make a far nicer  burger than the steak mince with little fat. The fat falls […]

White Pudding and Apple Stuffing

White Pudding and Apple Stuffing

This simple stuffing is ideal with pork or chicken. You can serve it with pork chops, a chicken fillet or a full on Roast Pork or Roast Chicken. Click the blue links for recipes for each. I prefer the cheaper stuffing, you know the one with no grainy bits through it. I used a pudding […]

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 […]

20160304_222750(1)

Smoky Beef & Chorizo Stew

Is there anything better than a bowl of steaming hot stew on a cold and wet day? This is a twist on a classic beef stew. The smoky flavour from the smoked paprika and spicy chorizo brings the dish to a whole new level, creating a dept of flavour that will leave you wanting seconds […]

Chicken-A-La-King

Chicken ala King (Gluten Free)

This is as tasty as it is quick to make. It is perfect for busy mums and dads who don’t have a lot of time to cook in the evenings. My mum used make it all the time after my brother, who was also a chef, thought it to her. I think it was her […]

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.  

20160530_190938(1)

Baked Coconut Chilli Chicken

I usually make this in a deep fat fryer but am trying to be a bit healthier these days so I baked the chicken instead. I prefer it fried but it was still tasty cooked in the oven. I served mine with Asian veggies which were lovely and have always been a personal favourite. Feel […]

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. […]

20150908_20101e0

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 […]

20150729_195244

Honey Roast Duck Sweet Soy & Chilli Dressing

THIS is one of my signature dishes. I have included an easy option if you don’t want to make your own sauce like I did. You can make it a whole lot easier on yourself if just you use sweet chilli from a bottle but it isn’t half as nice. If you decide to go this […]

20150923_201108

Thai Beef with Broccoli in Oyster Sauce

So many people have asked me to cook this dish. It is one of the easiest stir fries you will ever cook. The end result is a fantastic meal that will cost you so little to make compared with what you would pay in a take away. I used Aldi’s Minute steak strips to make […]

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 […]

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 […]

spice devils

Southern Fried Chicken

Fried chicken has always been a real family favourite esp with the kids. I love to make a big plate of it then simply stick in in the centre of the table with some big bowls of coleslaw and salad so everyone can dig in and help themselves. I highly recommend getting a food temperature […]

Pork Noodles

Quick & Easy Pork Noodles

This is one for a day you don’t really want to cook or have very little time to do so. You can easily change the pork to chicken or steak strips or even leave the meat out altogether and add more veggies or tofu to make it a vegetarian dish. I made this for the […]

20180531_192722-1000x562

Thai Chicken Croquettes

These little croquettes are such a simple treat to make. They work as a dinner, with your favourite curry sauce, with a salad or even as a snack with a dip. They are a little time consuming to make but this doesn’t mean they are difficult to make at all, the total opposite in fact. […]

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 […]

Slow Cooker Beef Stew

Simple Slow Cooker Beef Goulash

It doesn’t come much easier than this Slow Cooker Beef Goulash. It’s a family dinner without having to stand over the stove for ages so you can go about your busy day. Simply put all the ingredients into the slow cooker and walk away for the day. Beef Goulash is very similar to a stew […]

Thai Tom Yum Soup

Tom Yum soup is a sour spicy Thai soup that is full of healthy ingredients and low in fat. It is fairly easy to make though does call for a lot of ingredients. I think it is well worth it as this is one of my favourite Thai dishes to make. Leave the chilli out if […]

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 […]

Ramen with Chicken and Pak Choi

Ramen is a Japanese noodle soup with meat and veggies of various kinds added. It is a great dish as it is healthy and really refreshing. It takes a little more time to make than most other recipes I post but is seriously worth it. Once the chicken stock is made the actual dish doesn’t […]

Mushroom, Roasted Garlic, Smoked Pancetta & Parmesan Soup
