These cookies have a melting, buttery texture and hold their shape very well while baking. The dough freezes well so you can make a double batch and wrap some dough in clingfilm to stash in the freezer. I like them best without icing. The recipe is from Nigella Lawson's 'How to be a Domestic Goddess'.
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.
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.
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.
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!
