Basic Cupcakes

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

This recipe comes from my Aunt Erica, and is adapted from her fairy cake recipe. If you are making these for the kids to decorate and you want to limit the time it takes put everything together, it may be easier to make the cupcakes in advance and then get the kids to decorate them later on.

Roasted Squash, Coconut and Chilli Soup

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Roasted squash produces wonderful soups with a velvety consistency when blitzed smooth. The addition of coconut milk adds a creamy and exotic flavour, but if you don’t want to use it, you could replace with vegetable stock. This is a warming soup, ideal in autumn and winter. Serves between four and six people.

Slow-cooked Meaty Chilli

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Hearty food like this meaty chilli makes me very happy inside; it’s full of great spices and filling ingredients, and best of all it feeds a crowd. Using finely chopped meat here rather than mince gives a really interesting texture to the chilli.

Carrot and Cardamom Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Carrot and cardamom are a wonderful combination of flavours. The cake itself is moist enough but for that extra special touch you can add the delicious cinnamon cream cheese frosting. If you want to go all out, you can make mini carrots out of marzipan with a little orange food colouring and angelica root for the stalks.

Meat Marinades

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

These marinades are super with any meat. I sometimes mix the marinades in a resealable plastic bag, then drop in the meat, seal up the bag, give it all a good squish and pop in the fridge or freezer until I'm ready to use it. Most meat will be good in the fridge for three days or in the freezer for up to three months, still sitting in the marinade.
