    Crispy Turmeric Chicken with Yellow Pepper and Lime 🍴 This is literally the handiest thing to cook ever. Fleshy cuts of chicken like skin on and bone in thighs do best here because of the fat and flavour so use them if you can. Also turmeric is apparently a superfood so there you go now – The elixir of life. Method 🍷 1. Rub a good mix of turmeric, cumin and salt into your chicken and allow to rest at…

    Crispy battered prawn tacos with chorizo and tomato salsa 🌮 Like I said in my last prawn recipe, the bigger the prawn the better (for this recipe especially) but they are expensive so don’t collapse in the fish mongers if they end up being €20 because you have been warned ok Method: 1. Pat your prawns completely dry with a paper towel. This is vital to the crispiness. 2. Separate your egg whites (use the yolks for my carbonara recipe)…

    This week’s uses organic sweetcorn which is currently discounted 50% off with the lidlireland plus app. Taking bets as to how many of these posts it’ll take for Lidl to actually sponsor me. You can use frozen or tinned sweet corn in this recipe, it makes no difference. You will need a decent pan for shallow frying them in. Oh and you could switch out the spring onion for red onion either. Anyway Method 👩‍🍳 1. Whisk your eggs and…

    Fudgy dark chocolate brownies 🍫 I am staunchly against cakey brownies. During lockdown 1 last year I made at least 25 batches of brownies trying to figure out what the magic was to making them fudgy every time. And then I just googled it. Method 👩‍🍳 1. Preheat your oven to 180 2. Chop the chocolate up in to chips/chunks 3. Melt half the chocolate over a bowl of boiling water – especially if it’s dark chocolate cause the microwave…

    Crispy loaded potato skins with bacon, parmesan and garlic sour cream This is not just your standard potato skins recipe – the cornstarch mixture makes them extra crispy and the roasted garlic through the sour cream is a great way to avoid having to chop it in to annoyingly tiny pieces. You can obviously change up all the toppings too Method 👩‍🍳 1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees and put three potatoes, brushed with oil, in to roast for…

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and mould in to a ball of dough 4. Crush…

    Panko Vegetable Tempura with Katsu Curry Flat out on the veg after the Easter baking. These are oven baked with Panko breadcrumbs so they’re not as bad for you as the usual deep fried tempura. You can get Panko breadcrumbs in most supermarkets now handily enough. I used carrots, onions, parsnips, courgette and green beans as my veg but you could use almost anything you want. Method 🍷 1. Dice/ chop all your veg 2. Whisk your egg in a…

    Marinara Sauce I’d like to dedicate today’s recipe to Giorgio Chiellini Whether you’re using it on pizza or in pasta, marinara sauce from scratch is so simple but so good and there is literally no need to ever buy dolmio jars ever again. Most Italian cooking is heavily reliant on time, technique and the quality of the ingredients but it’s really not complicated at all to do the basics. If you truly want to honour the Italian football team, start…

    Easy 3 ingredient bagels Literally all you need here is a 2:1 ratio of self raising flour to Greek yogurt. So, you would use 200g of flour and 100g of yogurt. Add a pinch of salt and that’s all you need! Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl using your hand. The dough should form a ball that’s not too sticky to stick to your hand and not too dry to flake in to pieces. Roll the ball of…
