Orange Polenta Cake with Honey and Rosewater Syrup

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

This fragrant and moist cake is not only visually beautiful, it also has the most delicious spiced sweet orange and honey flavour. The cake can be made gluten-free as long as you use a gluten-free baking powder.

Sole Meunière

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Fish is often forgotten as the ultimate fast food. It is an incredibly quick cooking ingredient and I would normally wax lyrically about just how healthy it is, too. But not in this recipe. No, this recipe is all about the nutty golden brown butter that forms the sauce alongside the tang of lemon juice and the salty hit from the capers. It's a bit of an all-in recipe and if you're going to make it, serve it with some steamed veggies for a delicious dinner.

Mulled Apple Juice (Spice Mixture)

Try adding a good splash of dark rum or replacing the apple juice with cider for a mulled cider.

Chorizo, Chicken Bean Stew

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Chorizo adds a wonderful warmth and subtle heat to this great chicken stew. I use plum tomatoes here as they have a much better flavour than chopped tomatoes.

Jerk Chicken with Mango Salsa

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

If you've never had Jerk chicken before and were wondering what all the fuss was about, well, you are in for a treat. The spicy and earthy marinade produces the most delicious tender chicken you will ever have. Served with a cooling and sweet mango salsa, this is one of my ultimate summer dishes.

Asian, French and Herb Dressings

Incredibly easy, giving maximum taste, these will have you wondering why you didn't make your own salad dressing before.

Thai Rice Noodle Salad

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Anyone who has ever travelled to Thailand will remember the wonderful balance of flavours from sweet to salty and spicy to smoky. I like to think this salad captures all of these. There are so many wonderful textures and flavours from the roasted nuts, fresh crunchiness from the vegetables and then super sweet heat from the chilli and ginger dressing. This makes a really exciting midweek dinner.

Crisp Gingerbread Biscuits

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!

Pad Thai

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Rice noodles are a fantastic store cupboard ingredient and I regularly stock up at Asian markets, where you can also buy jumbo-sized bottles of Asian staples like fish sauce, soy sauce, and so much more. This dish is possibly one of the most famous Thai dishes and appears on menus throughout the world. Rightfully so: it's a speedy dish full of deep layers of sweet and aromatic flavours.

Salted Peanut Caramel Mud Pie

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

If you like your sweet treats gooey and chocolatey, then this is the bake for you. A rich chocolate pudding, oozing with a layer of salted caramel and a crunchy topping of peanut brittle – what more could you ask for?
