Leftover Roast Beef Chow Mein

Leftover Roast Beef Chow Mein

One of the very best things about a Sunday lunch is the leftovers the day after. Sometimes, I just throw it all into the oven (no microwave!) and eat the same thing again. But sometimes I like to use the leftover roast beef, or whatever […]

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 […]

Leftover Turkey Korma

Leftover Turkey Korma

Confession, for the last few years, we’ve had Christmas dinner with Jim’s parents. So, we’re not left with loads of turkey. We do sometimes bring some home, but it’s literally enough for sandwiches the next day. But, I remember when I was younger having to […]

Gorgeous Lamb Kleftiko

Gorgeous Lamb Kleftiko

Lamb Kleftiko is indulgent, tasty, filling, and quite simply fantastic. I’ve been to Greece a few times and it’s always been my favourite thing to eat. A big roast joint of lamb is, I guess, pretty warming and wintery. But, Greek food always reminds me […]

Healthy Beef Curry

Healthy Beef Curry

About a year ago, I made a curry from scratch for the first time. I’d always been hugely intimidated by all of the spices and flavours before then. Since that first one, I’ve made many many different curries, many different times. I very much doubt […]

Leftover Roast Lamb Greek Wraps

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

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 […]

Leftover Lamb Curry

Leftover Lamb Curry

I love Lamb. But, lamb is expensive, so we rarely have a Sunday roast lamb. It’s like, special occasion dinner. So tender and tasty and I’m weirdly obsessed with mint sauce. It’s just wonderful. So, in an attempt to eat more lovely lamb, without crying […]

Healthy Paprika Pork with Noodles

Healthy Paprika Pork with Noodles

I love noodles. I absolutely always order them when we have a Chinese takeaway, even if this sometimes means that we’re having rice, noodles and chips (we always have rice noodles and chips!) because I couldn’t bear to be without them. But, at home, aside […]

Easy Orange and Honey Chicken

Easy Orange and Honey Chicken

I love a good Fakeaway. In all honesty, I prefer a takeaway. But only because it’s naughty, and that always has an appeal! You can also get carried away with a takeaway and order everything on the menu. I tend to be a little more […]
