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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

20150615_225111

Chinese BBQ Pork Belly Ribs

These are the most popular dish I have ever served on any menu. They take some time to make, but this is what slow cookers are for. When done right they will be crispy and melt in the mouth delicious on the inside. I served mine with fried rice. To make this simple cook the […]

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 […]

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 […]

20150821_211752(0)

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

20190310_193948

Cheese Stuffed Tex-Mex Chicken Meatballs -Slow Cooker

This is a real child friendly dish so much so I bet this very quickly becomes a firm family favorite for many households around Ireland.  You can choose to leave the chills out if you prefer. This dish can be done in the oven or your slow cooker, I include methods for both in the […]

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 […]

Chicken Ricotta

Fillet of Chicken, Ricotta & Bacon

If you want to impress then why not try this little bit of luxury for those of us on a budget. It is dead simple to make and well tasty. Give it a go and I promise you wont be disappointed, I am always here to help if you need to ask a question or […]

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. […]

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 […]

Garlic & Herb Chicken Goujons Recipe Image

Garlic & Herb Chicken Goujons

If you fancy a quick dinner, salad, sandwich or wrap then this Garlic & Herb Chicken Goujons the recipe for you. Forget paying a fortune for processed chicken goujons in the shops as they have all sorts of rubbish added to them, most are made with reformed chicken, which is all the leftover bits formed […]

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.

20160202_194932(1)

Butter Chicken (murgh makhani)

Simple to make yet one of the nicest curries you will ever eat, butter chicken is one all the family can enjoy due to its mild creamy sauce. You can up the heat by adding a little extra chilli powder or more cayenne pepper. I served mine with homemade naan bread which is so much […]

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 […]

Christmas Roast Turkey & Ham

If you want an easy and stress free Christmas day in the kitchen then this is for you. I have calculated the cooking times for various weights of turkey in a handy chart below. My “No Hassle Turkey & Ham” guide below is a life saver, it will make your life so much easier Christmas […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

20180621_173543-1000x562

Chicken Biryani

This is a really simple dish that’s packed with flavour. You can use chicken, prawns, lamb or veggies or just use mushroom and peas to make an awesome Pilau to go with any of my curries. You can make this with any rice but basmati is best. I use a rice cooker and highly recommend […]

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 […]

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.    

20160322_204259(0)(1)

Chicken Balti

This is a really simple curry to make though may look a little daunting due to the amount of ingredients. The flavours are fantastic and it is fairly quick to make. You may have to spend a bit on ingredients at first but it is worth it as you will make a mountain of curries […]

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 […]

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 […]

Pork Fillet Mush and Pepper

Pork Fillet Medallions

You really can make one pork fillet go a long way with this method. It is very easy to do, You can choose to add stock or half cream and half stock or just cream. When serving in restaurants,I made it with cream and a drop of stock. The coating is so good with pork fillet […]

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 […]

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 […]

20160204_213405(1)

Spicy, Sticky & Crispy Chicken Wings

Everyone loves chicken wings, the only problem is the cost so much from supermarkets and even more from a restaurant or take away. Follow my recipe and make your own at home and not only will you save a fortune they are far better than you will get anywhere. I boil then bake them which […]

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 […]

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 […]

20160126_214307(3)

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 […]

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.

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 […]

20160610_191001

Red Braised Pork Belly

I learnt this dish while working in Shanghai and ended up eating it almost everyday for weeks. I couldn’t get some of the ingredients here so I adapted it to suit the ingredients I could get. The flavour and colour are slightly different but not dramatically so. If you can get your hands on dark […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.
