Easy Apple Slices

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

I am a big fan of simple desserts that don't take too long to prepare but still look homemade and impressive. These apple slices are beautiful served with a hearty dollop of whipped cream.

I love making American-style pancakes for breakfast and this version is particularly delicious. It is perfect for special occasions!

These might sound complicated but if you have all the ingredients, all it takes is to blitz everything until smooth, stir through a little spring onion and green beans, fry them and serve for the most delicious little Asian taster!

Fridge Leftovers Frittata

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Even the most sorry-looking kitchens should have a few eggs, veggies and a bit of leftover cheese knocking around. My fridge-leftovers frittata is a great little lunchtime dish; it's a filling base for lots of additions, depending on what's in your kitchen. Try adding leftover ham, chorizo, spinach, peas, herbs, all sorts really.

Chinese Five-spice Pork Belly

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Crispy crackling and tender pork belly meat paired with Chinese five-spice powder – a match made in heaven. For just the tiniest amount of work in the kitchen, using an inexpensive piece of meat, you get the most amazing results, which will feed a crowd. There are many different things you can do with pork belly as it’s quite versatile, but I like the simplicity of this method; it’s a nod to Asia, where this is an incredibly popular cut of meat.

Serve straight away, as the pasta can become a bit stodgy if left in the pan for too long.

Chorizo, Rocket and Red Onion Salad

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Chorizo is one of my favourite ingredients to use, it provides really delicious smoky flavours and, when fried, renders the most amazing red oil. One of the first few times I visited London, I got myself down to world-famous Borough market where you can pick up some of the best Spanish chorizo outside Spain. This salad is nicest if you can get your hands on some really good-quality chorizo – you will generally find the best stuff in Spanish specialty food shops.
