Banana and Oatmeal Muffins

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

I love to make these muffins for breakfasts and brunches; they are quite filling and a nice start to the day. You could add berries, chopped apple or stir through chocolate chips for an extra hit of sweetness.

Irish Omelette

From: Kitchen Hero: Rediscovering The Irish Kitchen

This might come as a surprise to some people, but I found this recipe in an 18th-century manuscript, spelt 'amulet' (maybe it was considered lucky to eat it), and it is extremely good and filling.

Mum's Coq au Vin Blanc

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Coq au Vin Blanc was a regular winter dish in my house when we were growing up. I have distinct memories of it steaming up the kitchen windows while we did our homework on the kitchen table. It's a wonderfully warming meal, perfect for cold evenings. Chicken joints such as thighs and legs are often far cheaper to buy than chicken breasts, and meat cooked on the bone always seems to have more flavour.

Swedish Christmas Rice Pudding (Julgrot)

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Serve big hearty spoonfuls of the chilled rice with an extra sprinkling of sugar and cinnamon and big dollops of whipped cream.

Griddled Beef and Mint Salad with Toasted Rice and Peanuts

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

On my first visit to Bangkok, it was a hot and sticky night when we arrived and this was the dish we tucked into after wandering the streets. The rather interesting addition, to what would otherwise be an ordinary beef dish, is the toasted ground rice, which adds both texture and a surprisingly smoky, nutty flavour. The original dish doesn’t feature the extra leaves, but I think it makes a wonderful healthy salad.

Blackberry Amber

From: Kitchen Hero: Rediscovering The Irish Kitchen

This is a very good way to serve blackberries as the top of the dessert is both soft and crisp. Apple can also be used.
