I’ve been less than enthused about Christmas in general over the past few weeks and frankly my overall feelings toward this holiday of holidays are still rather up-in-the air mere hours away from the big event. There’s something not quite right this year. Perhaps it’s the fact that I wasn’t able to put our adorable […]

I didn’t eat chocolate for a year once. Admittedly, my anti-confection atonement was bizarre and completely vanity driven but at the time it felt good to exercise a little personal self-control.

The Pistachio Fudge Fiasco

December 14, 2007

Just a moment ago I was looking up the recipe for Nigella Lawson’s Chocolate Pistachio Fudge online and I came across the actual clip of her making it on YouTube. So I sat through it thoroughly enjoying Nigella in all her glory of shiny black curls and smoldering looks when it dawned on me that […]

Cornish Hen and Sweet Potatoes

October 29, 2007

Yet another reason to love Nigella Lawson: her express meals apparently really can be made in a reasonable amount of time. What a concept!? After watching the first episode of Nigella Express on the Food Network I added her recipe for Roast Cornish Hen with Sweet Potatoes to my “to do” list so I’d remember […]
