Chocolate & Pumpkin Seed Cookies – Nigella Lawson ‘At My Table’

I know a good cookie when I eat one.  The white chocolate and cranberry cookies from Christmas are made for most occasions in our house – not just the festive season.  The same dough has been adapted with countless combinations of additions, from pecans and Caramac chunks to dark chocolate, salted pretzels or whatever might… Continue reading Chocolate & Pumpkin Seed Cookies – Nigella Lawson ‘At My Table’

Love me (Lemon) Tendercake – Nigella Lawson ‘At My Table’

Luscious, fragrant lemon and coconut bliss… A lemon cake wouldn’t be my first choice of bake; if I’m out and having cake, I’m having big cake with big flavours – chocolate, carrot or coffee – something that could win a fight if it picked one.  I guess this demonstrates my lack of subtlety in life;… Continue reading Love me (Lemon) Tendercake – Nigella Lawson ‘At My Table’

Oven Love – Carrots & Fennel with Harissa from Nigella Lawson’s ‘At My Table’

I’ve adopted a habit from my mother where any time I turn the oven on, or am even thinking about doing so, I’m automatically filling the racks in my head, leaving no space.  If the oven’s on, it’s full, which leads to get ahead opportunities, bonus bakes and random side dishes from what’s languishing in… Continue reading Oven Love – Carrots & Fennel with Harissa from Nigella Lawson’s ‘At My Table’
