Simple Wholemeal Bread

This recipe is a mixture of a traditional bread recipe from my aunt Rosa and the Avoca wholemeal bread recipe – taking the best from both! We love it because it's perfect with Irish Smoked Salmon - just add a wedge of lemon, delicious!

Tasty vegan three bean salad

A tasty vegan salad , easy to make and will save for a few days if chilled in an air-tight container. it would be a healthy lunch for bringing to work. Like many bean salads, it tastes better as it sits and it’s even better the next day once the dressing has mingled with the beans and veggies

Kanturk Blackpudding Potato Cakes with Ballymaloe Relish and Chives

To mark National Potato Day, which takes place on the 25th of August, I have put together this simple recipe. It is a great way to make the most out of your left over potatoes using some of Ireland's finest ingredients.

Vegan Brown Soda Bread

Traditional soda bread with healthy addition of omega 3 rich linseed.

Perfect Rib Eye Steak with roast sweet potato

This is comfort food at its very best. Rib eye is my favourite type of steak as the flavour of the eye is absorbed into the meat as it cooks. So much reward for such little effort with this recipe.

Peanut Butter Cookies

Soft, rich, moist in the middle, slightly crispy around the edges, with that nutty flavor

Norman's Sizzling Steak With Creamy Mustard Sauce

My dad, Norman, cooks the best steak ever. Normally on the 'braai' or BBQ, but with his top tips you'll get a great result in a heavy based pan. Fillet may be seen as the most sought after cut of steak, but I prefer rib eye steak any day. It has a great flavour and texture. Also very forgiving of a cook practicing to perfect pan frying steak skills. The creamy mustard sauce is just delish and can be used with chicken or pork instead.

Strawberry Cheesecake

This delicious cheesecake is sooo easy to make, which makes it the ideal thing to throw together when your in the mood for showing off! This cheesecake is also a handy one for a planned event, like a meal or party, because you can make it the day beforehand. This can reduce the amount of stress and things that you have to remember to do on the day! I got the recipe for this in transition year, when we did a bit of cooking, but I've made a few changes. You're going to need a 9 or 10 inch spring baking tin, otherwise you'll have some trouble serving the cheesecake! Just make sure you don't open the clasp on the tray before the cheesecake is set.

Easy Home-made Pizza

When you do not want to bother with yeast, this scone-based pizza dough is quick and easy to make and rolled out thinly will fill two baking trays to make two large pizzas. My favourite topping combination is goat’s cheese, basil pesto and red onion.
