Christmas Rocky Road: It’s not that I felt my usual Rocky Road Crunch Bars needed any improvement (though fiddling with recipes is one of life’s pleasures) but I thought they would benefit from some seasonal adjustment. So, out go the Rich Tea biscuits and in come amaretti and – in the seasonal spirit – I’ve crammed in some Brazil nuts and glacé cherries (as red as Rudolph’s nose), along with snowy mini marshmallows.
Love-in-a-mist Nigella damascena 'Albion Green Pod' - pure white flowers with a prominent boss of stamens are framed by a collar of wispy foliage, creating a beautiful, ethereal effect. As the flowers fade, fantastic green seedpods develop, and both these and the flowers make wonderful additions to fresh or dried arrangements
One of the cheapest meals in existsnce. Nigella Lawson's Eggs in Purgatory. Also healthy, and most cheap food isn't healty. This one is top notch. You can use fresh tomatoes and stew them yourself if you don't like canned veggies.
We had these yummy potatoes for Easter after hearing the recipe on the radio. It comes from Nigellas book Feast: Food to Celebrate Life. We were all afraid they would be overpowering because the whole house smelled like garlic, but they were wonderful - crispy and brown with a lovely roasted garlic flavor!
