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 […]

Easy Lamb Korma

Easy Lamb Korma

I seem to be making a different curry every week at the moment. It’s something I really enjoy, and we’re all slightly addicted to my homemade naan bread. We all love curry, so really, everyone is happy, and this week was even better. This week […]

Slow-Cooked Creamy Beef Curry

Slow-Cooked Creamy Beef Curry

When it comes to making curries, I’m no expert. It’s something that I’ve only been doing for a few months, and while I really enjoy it, and love experimenting with different flavours, I’ve got next to no idea what I’m doing. Sometimes, I stick to […]

Spicy One Pot Lamb Curry

Spicy One Pot Lamb Curry

So. I was going to make a lamb bhuna. I really really was. I read about the bhuna; I looked at a few recipes. I prepared some ingredients and wrote a quick plan of what I was going to do. It was going to be […]

Easy Chicken Jalfrezi

Easy Chicken Jalfrezi

I’ve been making my own curries for a while now. I didn’t for a long time, the ingredients intimidated me, and I couldn’t understand how they’d merge together to create such powerful flavours. Then, I had a go, starting with a really simple, pretty generic […]
