Lots of good stuff.

Spiced Mixed Nuts

From: Four Live

Homemade Cottage Pie with Cheesy Mash

From: The Afternoon Show

A meal to rush home for.

Hummus

From: Four Live

This is a cheat’s version of hummus because in this incidence we are using sesame seeds instead of the traditional tahini paste. The seeds give just as nice a flavour and a kick to the hummus.

Christmas Feast: Goose Fat Roast Potatoes with Garlic & Rosemary

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

For really crunchy roast potatoes with fluffy middles choose a floury variety of potato, such as Irish Roosters and try to make sure that they are all similar in size. To ensure really crispy roast potatoes drain off any excess fat about 20 minutes before the end of the cooking time. This will help them to go really crispy and golden brown around the edges.

Christmas Feast: Black Forest Brownie Trifle

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This recipe might look a little complicated but in fact it's incredibly easy. If you're very short of time use shop-bought brownies, a carton of readymade custard that you stir the melted chocolate into and a couple of posh jars of cherries in kirsch. Whatever way you decide to do it always use the best quality dark chocolate you can afford. It's best to leave the final part of the assembly to the last minute for the most spectacular impact.

Christmas Feast: Honey and Soy Sesame Carrots

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

Of course, these carrots could also be roasted in the oven in the glaze but Christmas is a time when oven space is often at a premium so I've decided to blanch them first and then finish them in a hot wok.

Christmas Feast: Baked Cheesy Brussels Sprouts

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

If you want a no-fuss Brussels sprouts recipe that can be made ahead of time then this is the one for you. Baked in a creamy sauce, these Brussels sprouts can be kept warm in a low oven covered with foil until you are ready to serve them. Alternatively, they can be prepared in advance ready to pop into the oven as the turkey comes out to rest.

Louisiana Crab Salad

A great combination of flavours.
