Mikado Coconut Cream Cake

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

When I was growing up, if Mikado biscuits were in the house, they didn't last long. This cake is a small homage to them with a light sponge layered with jam, covered with a sweet marshmallow frosting and decorated with desiccated coconut.

Flavour Bomb Salad

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

If you ever needed proof that something incredibly delicious can be made in a very short amount of time, then this salad is just that! Packed with punchy heat from the chorizo and salty squidginess from the halloumi, this little dish is full of wonderful things to keep you interested, even if you have very little time to make dinner. Speed up this recipe by buying sun-blushed tomatoes instead of roasting them yourself.

Chorizo, Chicken Bean Stew

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.

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.

Bun Cha: Barbecued Pork Skewers with Herbs and Rice Vermicelli

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Vietnam is all about incredible street food and when I visited the country, this was one of my favourite dishes to eat on a plastic stool at a roadside pop-up vendor. It's a feast of smoky pork skewers, wrapped in lettuce leaves with fresh herbs and dipped in a salty sweet sauce. Barbecue the pork to get the essential smoky element of South East Asian cooking, but a griddle pan will also work. The classic version uses pork belly to form little pork patties, but this is a quicker variation.

Chilli and Lemongrass Chicken

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

This is a wonderfully fragrant dish that is very easy to prepare. I use chicken thighs here as they have more flavour, but you can easily use chicken breasts instead. The paste made for the sauce can also be used with beef or pork.

Spicy Seafood Paella

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

What I love most about this recipe is that a big steaming pan of food is served straight to the table and people just dig in. It also makes a great leftover lunchbox - if you're lucky enough to have any left.

Asian, French and Herb Dressings

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

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

Surf & Turf Salad

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Chimichurri is a tangy and fresh Argentinian sauce. It can be made very easily and is the perfect accompaniment to grilled meat and seafood. This is a mighty feast, which is also quite healthy.
