This is the brownie recipe we use most. It is from Nigella Lawson's "How To Be a Domestic Goddess". My Dear Daughter who is not a Goddess in the kitchen sure has success with this recipe. So I thought I would share this recipe with you in case you to have a domestic challenged loved one in your kitchen.
I love this cake. As Nigella says: "the essence of all that is desirable in chocolate - dark intensity isn't toyed with nor upstaged by any culinary elaboration. The plainest of plain loaf cakes - damp, heady, aromatic!" What can I say?
Be sure to line the tin well.
We had these yummy potatoes for Easter after hearing the recipe on the radio. It comes from Nigella's 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!
I got this recipe from Nigella Bites- the show. Loved it from the very first time I made it. The good thing about this recipe is that it also has a vegetarian version so no one misses out on the taste.
This recipe comes from Nigella Lawson's "How to Eat" and was demonstrated on her tv program, Nigella Bites." Ground almonds take the place of flour in this recipe - made sure they are finely ground or they will taste gritty. I have not yet made this, as I am posting this in respsonse to a request. Nigella adapted this recipe from several recipes, including one by Claudia Roden. It should come out very moist and syrupy. If you like, you may also sub lemons or oranges (see variation below) and also, you may pour a powdered sugar glaze over the cooled cake if you like. Nigella recommends serving this with some creme fraiche(which I might sweeten first) on top of each serving. Prep time is about 15 minutes, plus the 2 hours of simmering the Clementines.
This very unusual salad is very pretty and unique. This may not be for everyone's taste buds, but is a pleasant change from the norm. I saw this prepared on the tv program "Nigella Bites." It would go well with Meditteranean or Middle Eastern style dishes and is a nice compliment to grilled chicken or fish. Be sure to only use fresh ingredients. I don't serve this as a side salad on its own, but rather, as a bed for salmon or other fish.
This cake is from 'How to be a Domestic Goddess' and is my favourite cheesecake recipe so far. I posted the original recipe but I usually replace half the cream cheese by Philadelphia Extra Light (6% fat), to make a lighter cheesecake, and take just 2/3 of the recipe and bake it in a 20cm springform for 1 hour.
Peas came in late this year. Not enough to freeze like I always do so instead I tried this simple, tasty treat because I love lettuce, peas, and with a bit of butter. The new scallions that I pulled up from the earth, the fresh lettuce, snipped, and the peas just make such a treat to devour and enjoy the accomplishment of these garden treats.
A colleague treated us to these Nigella Lawson cup cakes at her farewell morning tea. I was transported back to my sixth birthday party! They're also perfect for a "grown up's" afternoon tea party too.
These cupcakes sound yummy. Nigella describes them as "somewhere between chocolate and gingerbread." She has decorated them with white frosting, with two holly leaves made from ready-made, dyed icing and cranberries for the holly berries. I'm putting the recipe here so I know where it is at Christmastime. I don't know if the types of icings she uses are available here in the U.S., but you'll get the idea.
Came across this recipe on nytimes.com in an article written by the Kitchen Goddess herself: Nigella Lawson. Haven't tried it yet, but I thought I'd share this. I'm drooling over the thought of it! :) I did omit the ghee to make it healthier.
