Leftover Lamb Pasta
I admit, not everybody will have eaten lamb today; lamb is relatively expensive to bu!. I’d bet though that if you did buy lamb for your Easter Sunday roast, you really don’t want to throw away any of that precious meat. This leftover lamb pasta recipe is especially designed for the itty bitty pieces that don’t come away easily when carving. They are perfect shredded into the sauce, browned until caramelised and cling to the pasta in nutty morsels.
Roast Lamb Feast
This Easter Sunday we’ll all gather as a family; my siblings, our partners, our children, and my parents, and we’ll enjoy this classic roast lamb feast. When I say a classic roast lamb feast that’s not strictly true in the Irish sense of the term. The flavours and the food that we will eat together are a reflection of us as a family. The meal speaks to us of a time spent in the Middle East when Dad was serving with UNIFIL and the youngest of us was still in nappies. It’s a meal that we will all contribute to. I’ve already been told I’m responsible for the vegetables, which…
Slow Cooker Lamb Tagine
I get asked questions quite a bit about the slow cooker so I figured I’d pop my tips/answers below, with a slow cooker lamb tagine recipe at the end.

Maybe I should have called this post “why I flipping love my slow cooker”!
Homemade Flatbreads Recipe
During the school year I try to get the kids to have their dinner by 5.30pm at the latest. It stops too much snacking when they get home from school and it means that they get hot food on cold days (not that we’ve had many of those recently). All three of the kids have conspired against me these past few weeks and each finished at a different time. That will change very soon thank goodness! These flatbreads are the perfect meal to prepare in advance. I can mix up the dough in the morning, cover and forget about it. I can also make the filling well before I need…
Slow Roast Leg Of Lamb
It’s the May Bank Holiday weekend in Ireland. The feast of Bealtaine has passed. Some of the folk around here would have washed their face in the dew, built small bonfires and cleansed the house (although this doesn’t happen so much in a residential area) and yellow flowers would be left outside the door of family members and friends. We don’t do the flower thing so much either. The beauty of a Bank Holiday weekend is that it gives me a chance to make a big roast dinner on the Sunday. I rarely cook a family dinner on Sundays, it’s the one day of the week when I try to…
