Pork Meatballs

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a fantastic recipe that my good friends at Bord Bia regularly demonstrate. It always goes down a treat with the crowd, so I thought it would be a great one to share with you. I've just slightly reduced the size of the meatballs so that they cook a little quicker in the oven.

Crispy Goat's Cheese with Apple and Hazelnut Salad

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

If you prefer to bake the goat's cheese, simply cook it in an oven preheated to 180°C (350°F/gas mark 4) for another 5-10 minutes, until warmed through and soft. Look for Irish apples in the supermarket, particularly when they are in season, and if they're not there, ask the manager why! Apples are one of our few indigenous fruits and there is no excuse for the shops not supporting Irish farmers.

Sticky Gingerbread with Lemon Drizzle

From: Today

January is a long month and the sugar-free good intentions can be put aside for a week or so, allowing us to nourish ourselves. I recently bought three ginger roots, great big sprawling things that resemble the hands of a hard working man – the ultimate healing hands, which, when grated and added to boiling water for ginger tea with honey and lemon, or used in soups, cakes, breads or stews, will sooth and revive the body and spirit. The following cake is just what the doctor ordered. Lots of healing ginger, warming cinnamon and cleansing lemon with an egg thrown in for good measure!

Poached Hake and Veggie Broth with Vibrant Salsa

Serve the poached hake on a bed of the broth with salsa dripping from the hake.

Flax Seed and Berries Smoothie

From: Today

Lots of good stuff.

Spiced Mixed Nuts

From: Four Live

Sometimes a bowl of these in the middle of a table at a drinks reception is just enough.

Hummus

From: Four Live

This is a cheat’s version of hummus because in this incidence we are using sesame seeds instead of the traditional tahini paste. The seeds give just as nice a flavour and a kick to the hummus.

Alix Gardner’s Cookery School Hungarian Goulash

This simple but tasty recipe is sure to be a winner in the colder months.

Christmas Feast: Roast Turkey with Cranberry and Sage Stuffing

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

For an easier to carve option this Christmas Day, try this rolled turkey breast, which is stuffed with a sweet and aromatic stuffing. I love the combination of maple, orange, smoked bacon and apple spiked with the cranberries, but you can easily adapt this with your own favourite flavours.
