Lemon Meringue Pie

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Lemon meringue pie is just one of those classic show-stopping desserts that is almost always guaranteed to be met with a chorus of 'oooohs' and 'aaaaahs'.

This is definitely not an everyday breakfast, but for special occasions it makes a wonderful celebration breakfast, perfect for Christmas morning.

Banoffee Cake

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Banoffee pie has to be one of my desert island desserts and while I still love the pie version, this cake certainly gives it a run for its money with its moist banana sponge layered with a sweet caramel frosting.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Irish Camp Coffee Cake

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

This recipe makes a moist coffee swirl cake, cooked in a Bundt tin. If you don't have one, you can easily make it in a springform tin, buttered and the base lined with baking parchment.

Mulled Apple Juice (Spice Mixture)

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