Crispy Chilli Beef

I was a bit of a late comer to takeaway food. I was raised by my Grandparents, my Nan was a self-proclaimed Vegetarian that didn’t stop her from eating corned beef (I always assumed that was justifiable homicide) and my Grandfather, despite serving in Northern Africa and Italy as a Tank Driver in the SecondContinue reading “Crispy Chilli Beef”

Egg Fried Rice

This lovely and simple recipe that will bring you the Takeaway favourite is economical and easy to make. The only things I would highly recommend is using a wok to do this rather than a frying pan and to cook your rice 24 hours before. I love being part of a multicultural society, it opensContinue reading “Egg Fried Rice”

Lamb Linguine

Who doesn’t love a takeaway? I mean, you might have a preference on your favourite ethnicity of menu and a tried and tested favourite on that menu, but we all salivate when we think of our favourite.

Farmhouse Carbonara

Farmhouse Carbonara As you might have guessed I’m a massive fan of Italian food. Its typically cheap to make, its smells amazing, it CAN be healthy and it just gives that “carb hug” when you need it the most.

Malteser Cheesecake

It never fails to delight my sweet-toothed wife and in fact, I’m afraid to take the finishedContinue reading “Malteser Cheesecake”

Doritos Lasagne

Doritos Lasagne I first came across this concept by listening to the Editor of Politics.co.uk and author Ian Dunt on a podcast. He was mocked by his co-panellists but by the gods Old and New, he had hit gold. I use a combination of my Beef Ragu which is complimented with two jars of cheeseContinue reading “Doritos Lasagne”

Vegan Quesadillas

Vegan Quesadillas This Plant based spin on a Mexican Classic ticks all the boxes of its traditional counterpart but without leaving you with the heaviness that you get from eating the meaty equivalent, not to mention its packed with vitamins important to keep you healthy. Although I served this with a mixed leaf and tomatoContinue reading “Vegan Quesadillas”

Mushroom Stroganoff

Mushroom Stroganoff This hearty dish is a firm favourite in our house, I am not usually a fan of cooking with alcohol and the White Wine can be left out if needs be, however, for the cooking aroma alone I would leave it in. No need to buy anything expensive either, it is the vitalContinue reading “Mushroom Stroganoff”
