Angie’s Skehan Family Irish Stew

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Angie looked after my dad when he was growing up, and when I first started going to school she used to walk me home and give me lunch, which was regularly Irish stew. Her Irish stew is legendary in the Skehan family, with my dad’s five siblings and my eleven cousins all having been brought up on it. Angie always knew how to feed an army of hungry mouths, so I hope this version of the recipe does hers justice!

Mojito

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

People panic a little bit about the measurements for cocktails, but it really is a case of making them to taste and remembering simple rules like one part alcohol to three part mixer for each person. Then just add the flavours! Get your hands on some fresh summer mint for these babies – it's one of the easiest herbs to grow, so just pick up a plant in the garden centre and pop it in a pot for fresh mint all summer long!

A healthy meal that can be made in just 20 minutes.

Creamy Spinach Gnocchi

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

One of my favourite quick-fix suppers, this is full of fresh flavours and has a nice hum of heat from the chilli flakes. Gnocchi is easy to make yourself, but you can now pick up packets of the fresh variety in most supermarkets. If you happen to have fresh peas growing in your garden, feel free to use them instead of frozen.

Swedish Christmas Ham

Julmust and Mustard Skinka, as the Swedes call it.

Turkey Meatloaf with a Spicy Bean Stew

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

On a recent visit to New York City, I tried the meatloaf in Kitchenette, a cool retro diner, and have been craving it ever since, which was why this recipe was born. It's true, unashamed comfort food and should be celebrated for being just that. You can make one big meatloaf and serve it in slices or I sometimes like to make mini ones and serve each sitting proudly on top of the spicy bean stew.

Braised Crispy Chicken Thighs with Spring Onions, Baby Gem and Peas

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

True comfort food in a matter of minutes; that's what this dish is all about. Crispy chicken in a white wine sauce with wonderful braised greens and a pop of zesty citrus freshness; it really doesn't get better than that for a speedy midweek supper.

Tomato, Ricotta and Thyme Tartlets with Summer Salad

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

Serve these individual tartlets with the best that the summer has to offer: baby salad leaves, soft herbs such as chives, basil and chervil and lots of beautiful edible flowers.
