20160824_191519

Chicken & Chorizo Casserole – Slow Cooker or Oven

Sometimes the best meals are the cheapest to make, 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 […]

20160624_192819

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.

20160825_193606

Pork, Chicken or Steak Fajitas

This is a great recipe as 2 pork chops will feed a family of 4. You can use more if you like but it really isn’t needed. You can also use chicken breasts or steak strips if you prefer or use more veggies to make it a vegetarian dish. You can buy spice mixes in […]

Flag-presentation-Nov-2015-1-400x267

Deep Filled Beef & Ale Pie

I must admit, I love a good pie especially a deep filled pie with a shortcrust pastry bottom and a puff pastry top. Many of you don’t have the time to make pastry for a pie so this recipe uses shop bought pastry to make it really easy and less time consuming to make. I […]

20150813_214049

Tagliatelle, Smoked Bacon, Kale and Mushroom

If you are looking for a fast healthy dinner or lunch them this is the recipe for you. It uses no cream or butter at all instead I used Rapeseed Oil. Aldi and Lidl do smoked pancetta pieces or SuperValu do bacon Lardons, they are all the same price. I prefered SuperValu’s.

20160112_193553(1)

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

20150706_210632

Chinese Satay Chicken

Satay chicken is one of those dishes that you can have anytime, even if not having a chinese meal. They go great on the bbq, as a starter, main course or as a handy snack. I use chunky peanut butter however you can use smooth if you prefer. I made skewers this time, if you […]

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 […]

20170330_183939

Char Sui Pork Chow Mein

This is one your family will love, it’s cheap and very quick to make once the pork is cooked. You can change the pork to chicken for a faster dinner. Chop it the same size as the veg and cook 2 minutes before you add the veg. Char sui is Chinese BBQ pork. Most people […]

20180517_112918-1000x562

Cajun Chicken Burger

This is a quick and easy dinner that can be, mostly, prepared in advance then cooked when dinner times arrives. Simply marinade the chicken that morning or the night before the grill or pan fry when ready. These Cajun chicken burgers go so well with my Crispy Sweet Potato Wedges

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 […]

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 […]

20150922_200932

Slow Cooked Thai Coconut Chicken Curry (gf)

This is one of my favourite curries of all time. This is made with chicken drumsticks and thighs rather than breast meat. They give a far better flavour esp when slow cooked. This is made using a shop bought paste as it makes it easier for the majority of people who don’t have the time […]

20180105_205540-1000x562

Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Gravy – GF

We all love fried chicken especially when it is juicy on the inside with a deliscious crisp coating. For many it can be difficult to get it right and so they end up with tough dry chicken. Brining the meat before cooking helps prevent the chicken frying out when cooking and so you end up […]

20150916_210037(0)

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 […]

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 […]

20150314_131514(0)

Simple Lamb Shanks (Slow Cooker)

This is a wonderful dish that can be made by anyone, it takes very little work as the oven does most of that, so you can concentrate on other things. I will upload more recipes for Lamb Shanks over time, most more complicated that this simple one.  

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 […]

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. […]

20160531_194519(1)

Steak & Cheese Sub

I must admit I am a sucker for a good steak and cheese sub or steak and cheese anything if I am honest. I use Gruyere cheese which, in my opinion takes it to a whole new level. Feel free to change the recipe around to suit your own tastes.

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. […]

20160716_201429

Lamb Burgers with Mint, Tomato & Brie

I used to serve these on a menu while working in a restaurant, they were slow to sell at first but once people began to try them they came back for them again and again. It wasn’t long before they became one of my best sellers on that menu. Lamb burgers are really tasty, the […]

20180427_215216-1000x562

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 […]

IMG_1348t

Pasta Bolognese

Always a family favourite this is far nicer than anything from a jar, it is also way cheaper and far better for you and your family. Remove or add veg to suit your tastes, I used carrots, peppers and mushrooms. Smoked rashers are great in it as well. I choose to make handmade pasta for […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Foo-Young

Chicken Egg Foo Young

Egg Foo Young is an amazing dish but unfortunately every time I have had it in a Chinese here it has been terrible and more like a bad omelette than a delicious Egg Foo Young should be. I am not a fan of the taste of eggs, I will only eat the yolk usually. This […]

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 […]

Crispy & Sticky Sesame Chilli Chicken

It’s as if you have a high class chinese restaurant in your home! All I can say, is you have to make this now, it is an amazing dish and like all my recipes it is dead easy to make.I am thoroughly enjoying the one I made that you see in the pictures as I […]

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 […]

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, […]

20160429_190811(1)

Chicken Chow Mein

This popular dish is so quick and simple to make yet tastes great, the best bit is it is really healthy and cheap to make. One packet of noodles and a couple of chicken breasts will feed a family of 4. I use 4 chicken breasts in the recipe but use two if money is […]

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-mince-stir-fry

Chicken Stir Fry with Oyster Sauce and Chilli

This is a dish for broke days, days when you don’t have much time to cook or even the days you want something really tasty that won’t leave you feeling bloated. I really enjoyed this dish and I felt great after eating it. It is full of goodness with all the veggies it contains. Make […]

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 […]

Beef Kebabs in Pitta Bread

Most of us love a take away yet they cost a fortune, esp if you have to buy for the whole family. I often make these for friends after we come back from a night on the beer. They are fairly easy to make esp as most of the work is done in advance so […]

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 […]

Slow Cooker Piri Piri Chicken

This is so handy for busy families who don’t have the time to stand over the cooker to make dinner. All you have to do is season the chicken, cut up a few veg then pop it all into the slow cooker or oven and forget about it till you are ready to eat. The […]

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 […]

20170227_191236

Tomato Keema Curry – Minced Beef Curry

It isn’t very often you see a curry made with minced beef. Most use lamb, chicken or some sort of seafood and the few that use beef tend to use stewing beef or steak strips. The fact that this Pakistani curry is made with minced beef means that it can be made very quickly and […]

20180405_202930-1000x562

Whole Roast Thai Chicken

Most of us are familiar with the traditional roast chicken in some form or other. This is a simple twist on this. It makes a great family meal or is even better portioned before cooking then cooking on the BBQ. The longer you can leave it marinade the better so try to give it 2 […]

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 […]

Tagliatelle Carbonara

CARBONARA is easily the most popular pasta dish in the world. I have seen it served from Ireland, to Germany, Australia and even in Hong Kong. Unfortunately most restaurants and chefs haven’t got a clue how to make a proper one. Being a big bacon and cheese lover I really love a good carbonara when made […]

Chicken, Smoked Bacon & Mushroom Lasagna

Most of us know traditional lasagna made with minced beef or a vegetarian version. Chicken lasagna is a new one to me as I am sure it is to many of you. I had to cook for a friend who doesn’t eat red meat so I got creative and came up with this new recipe. […]

Roasted goose

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 […]
