Smoked Mackerel Pate with Ricotta Serves 8

Smoked Mackerel Pate with Ricotta

Quite simply the easiest pâté I've ever made. All the ingredients are placed together in the bowl of the processor, then one little whiz and it's made! It also has an utterly sublime flavour – brilliant! Serve with hot toasted wholemeal bread.

 
 
German frankfurters and hot potato salad with mustard dressing Serves 2

German frankfurters and hot potato salad with mustard dressing

Storecupboard ingredients have a starring role in this tasty family supper recipe which we just know you'll make again and again.

 
 
Cheese and Vegetable Wholewheat FlanServes 4-6

Cheese and Vegetable Wholewheat Flan

For this recipe – ideal for vegetarians – I use a 7 inch (18 cm) metal pie plate with a rim which is about 1½ inches (4 cm) deep.

 
 
Barbecued Chicken with an Apricot GlazeServes 6

Barbecued Chicken with an Apricot Glaze

This is a sauce that's suitable for all meats but particularly chicken drumsticks. One important point is that drumsticks need pre-baking in a pre-heated oven for 15 minutes just before glazing and barbecuing.

 
 
Caramelised Balsamic and Red Onion Tarts with Goats' CheeseMakes 8

Caramelised Balsamic and Red Onion Tarts with Goats' Cheese

The long, slow cooking of red onions and balsamic vinegar gives a lovely sweet, concentrated caramel consistency. These are then spooned into crisp cheese pastry cases and topped with melted goats' cheese and sage.

 
 
Caramelised Onion Tartlets with Goats' Cheese and ThymeMakes 24

Caramelised Onion Tartlets with Goats' Cheese and Thyme

When we made these tartlets for the photography, we couldn't stop eating them! Crisp, light pastry with such a luscious filling – and also lovely as a first course at a supper party.

 
 
ChilladasServes 8 (Makes 24)

Chilladas

On their own, lentils can be a bit bland, but with this spiced lentil cakes Delia has added plenty of flavour with tomato, herbs and spices. A brilliant vegetarian recipe that's cheap and easy to make, but also extremely nutritious and filling.

 
 
Hummus Bi TahiniServes 6

Hummus Bi Tahini

If you want to make the proper authentic version of this you'll need to hunt out some tahini paste, which is available at supermarkets and health-food shops.

 
 
Spiced Brown Rice Salad with Nuts and SeedsServes 8–10

Spiced Brown Rice Salad with Nuts and Seeds

A brilliant dish for a party, this salad scores plenty of brownie points on the health scale, with brown rice, salad vegetables, seeds and nuts - ideal after all that rich Christmas food!

 
 
Spiced Date and Sesame CrunchiesMakes about 18

Spiced Date and Sesame Crunchies

The original recipe didn’t have sesame seeds, which is an added dimension, and we’re pleased they’re popular with children since they’re so easy to pop into a lunchbox.
