Fakeaways

I love a good takeaway, with starters, sides and all of the dips! If my waistline and bank balance allowed it, I’d eat them all of the time. But, I also love to cook. A good Fakeaway, whether it’s a homemade curry or pizza is a fantastic alternative. Cheaper, often healthier and great fun to cook, some Fakeaways are also a fab way to use up your leftovers.

Halloumi and Potato Curry

Halloumi and Potato Curry

I’ve wanted to make a Halloumi Curry for a while. Halloumi is something that I absolutely love but don’t do enough with. I make the occasional Halloumi Burgers, but apart from that it’s usually used in a sandwich or a salad. There’s much more to…

Healthy Beef Curry

Leftover Roast Lamb Greek Wraps

I love lamb. Me and husband were saying the other day that a leg of lamb sums up how our life has changed over the last few years. When we met, we never had any money. We’ve had times of him being out of work,…

Homemade Pork Chow Mein

Chow Mein is one of my favourites. It’s the noodles. I’m totally obsessed with noodles. Even if we order something different from a takeaway place, we get extra noodles or a plain chow mein, and plenty of my Fakeaways work well with noodles instead of…
