Chicken Thighs Braised in Cider with Sweet Potatoes

From: Today

When you're in the mood for a real winter warmer that has tonnes of flavour, appeals to all the family and takes very little time to get in the oven compared to traditional casseroles, you can't go far wrong with this recipe.

Marinated Pork Fillet with Sausage Stuffing

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This recipe is based on a dish that I was taught to cook in college. It's always been a favourite in our house and when I made it again recently, I was surprised at how good it was - I had forgotten. The meat really does need to be marinated overnight to achieve the best flavour.

Lamb Curry

From: Today

This is a very traditional way of cooking lamb curry in my parents' house. I love the combination of lamb curry, rice and chargrilled tomato chutney. In Nepal, generally, goat meat is more popular than lamb meat but coming to Ireland, I prefer lamb meat to goat as I find goat meat is a little tougher than lamb. We cook any meat - even fish - on the bone as bone adds much deeper flavour to the dish and acts as a natural stock. You won't get that from off-the-bone meat, especially in any curry dishes. Lamb curry is great as leftover, too.

Apple Tart with Custard

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Homemade apple tart - a winning combination of delicate, sweet pastry filled with heavenly scented apples - simply can't be beaten. To ring in the changes, mix the apples with blackberries or try a mixture of rhubarb and strawberry. To make your tart extra special, add a vanilla pod to your bag of sugar and leave for at least a week before using.

Monkfish with Gnocchi, Wild Mushrooms, Sundried Tomato and Saffron Velouté

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Monkfish is a firm-textured fish and is very popular with our customers. The velouté goes well with any fish, as its flavour isn't too overpowering. The gnocchi also works well on its own with a Parmesan foam as a starter or light supper.

Brandy Snaps with Chilli and Passion Fruit Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a simple, light dessert that my mother always had on our dessert trolley in the restaurant. This is my twist on her recipe. The passion fruit makes them very refreshing and the little chilli kick is a nice afternote. Once the batter is made, they take very little time to prepare.

Crisp Gingerbread Biscuits

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

This recipe makes perfectly crisp gingerbread biscuits which snap and crumble in the mouth. The smell of these biscuits baking in the oven will instantly transport you to Christmas heaven!

Chocolate Tiramisu

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

A perfect make-ahead dessert just like Italian mamma used to make... Creamy layers wrapped together with coffee soaked ladyfinger biscuits and dark and white shavings of chocolate - it can't be beat!

Caramelised Chicken with Oranges

Lynda says: "This is one of those dinners that requires minimal work and makes for a great family meal. At the end of the cooking, the chicken pieces are golden and caramelised and have absorbed some of the orangey syrup. I generally serve this with rice and some crunchy vegetables on the side such as green beans, asparagus or purple sprouting broccoli, depending on the season. You may prefer to buy chicken legs and thighs instead of a whole chicken as the bones impart so much flavour."
