Our food cravings have inspired this list, based on recipes we've been posting on the site lately. The dishes below are ones we know we'll cook again and again, so try them out with us and let us know what you think.

Garlic and chilli prawns

Summertime and the livin' is easy, isn't that how the song goes? This gorgeous tapas recipe is quick to throw together, full of flavour and perfect for al fresco dining. Pro tip: enjoy with a crisp glass of white wine to convince yourself you're actually eating this beside the beach in Spain. Get the recipe here.

korean lamp chops

Sweet, spicy and jam-packed with flavour, these lamb chops from Jess Murphy of Kai in Galway are so easy to make. The mint and chilli slaw is very versatile and would probably work really well with chicken too. Get the recipe here.

Irish stout beef brisket buns

Beef brisket might sound like an ordeal to cook, but this recipe from Ethna Reynolds takes all the hassle out of the process. Bonus! You should get a few meals out of this brisket recipe and the buns are so easy to whip up. However, if you don't fancy repeating the buns, try the brisket with some mashed potato and roasted veg for a twist on the classic Sunday lunch. Get the recipe here
