Chicken Kiev

Someone cooked me Chicken Kiev once, she went to a lot of trouble so when she served me up one of those store bought ones, you know the processed ones I mean, I had no choice but to eat it. Let me tell you it was hard work, those things are vile and taste nothing […]

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 […]

20150819_230229

Beef Lasagna

A good, homemade lasagne is such a warm, hearty dinner. Egg lasagne sheets are a little bit more expensive but taste better and I think they’re worth it. This dish is brilliant for freezing, so you could also double the portions and freeze some for another day.

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

20160225_222358(1)

Thai Crispy Minced Beef Parcels

This is super easy to make and super quick, the best bit is it is one of the tastiest dishes I have posted to date. The combination of flavours and textures are amazing. It is important that you cook the mince first and keep cooking it until it starts to turn crispy, so until it […]

20170603_140324

Popcorn Chicken with Lime and Mint Mayo

Here is a brilliant gluten free snack or lunch that’s great to share and the kids will love it. The main batter ingredient is polenta, which is sometimes known as cornmeal. It’s used a great deal in the Mediterranean, and in the states where it’s known as grits. I have found it in larger supermarkets […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

20150626_222354

Thai Massaman Chicken Curry (gluten free)

  I love this curry, it is dead easy to make and it tastes great. The potatoes really make the dish because they absorb so much flavour I used a shop bought paste in this curry to accommodate those who don’t want to go to the trouble of making their own. CHECK THE LABEL TO […]

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 […]

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.  

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 […]

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 […]

20160309_200226(1)

Beef Koftas

Perfect for a cold winters day or to cook on the bbq on a hot summer’s day, these Beef Koftas are sensational. They are very simple if a little time consuming but can be prepared in advance and cooked when needed. The Salad is made with rocket leaves, toasted pine nuts, sunflower seeds, roasted red […]

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. […]

Ham & Cheese Potato Cakes

My mum used make the most amazing potato cakes for tea whenever she had some potatoes left over. We all loved them. She used to make them into triangles and pan fry them in butter. I used eat them with nothing but a bit of ketchup and I loved every bite. She inspired me to […]

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 […]

20160707_193820

Mauritian Teeka Tropical Chicken Curry

I made this using a spice blend made by a friend of mine who started a little company making a lovely little range of spice blends. He lists a wide range of ingredients on the packet, few of which I had, so I made my own version from what I had in the house. I […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Beef Stroganoff Recipe

Beef Stroganoff

Beef Stroganoff is for those days you really don’t want to cook especially the wet ones where all you want to do is sit in front of the fire in your jammies and fill up on an awesome comfort dish like this. Beef Stroganoff is originally a Russian dish but is now a staple around […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

20160418_232603(1)

Lamb Jalfrezi

Another Indian curry that is cheap and easy to make yet tastes fantastic. It takes longer to cook than my Chicken Jalfrezi Recipe but only because the lamb takes longer to cook. Preparing the dish takes very little effort or time so this is great for busy families. I used the lamb from Supervalu but […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

20160702_125306

Smoked Bacon & Mushroom Omelette

Omelettes are quick, easy and cheap, they make a great breakfast, lunch or even a dinner. If you are broke and looking for something simple to make that will fill you and your family then these are perfect though they are great to make even when you aren’t. The best thing about them is you […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

20160908_205327

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Savoury Mince Stew

Savoury Mince Stew

Savoury Mince Stew has always been my favourite dinner of all time, esp on a cold day though I would even eat it on the hottest day. My mum made it better than I ever could, she was an amazing cook. I introduced it onto a bar menu in Hong Kong a few years back […]

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.

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 […]

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_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. […]

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 […]
