Nigella Lawson’s current series on BBC 2 has caused controversy. Notorious for “cheat’s cooking” as she calls it and loved by working women everywhere for its ease and convenience, this current series has gone a step too far or has it????

Come Dine With Me

Nigella Lawson eat your heart out. The Queen of Ease has been a role model for me who likes to create delicious meals with little fuss. My timetable just doesn’t allow lamented cooking efforts. So my menu for a dinner party this weekend took all of an hour and a half to prepare and was cooked entirely in the oven.

The Menu:

Starter: Stuffed Portabello Mushrooms, Main Course: Salmon and Artichoke En Croute, Dessert: Heartache Chocolate Cake.

Each day I will bring you a recipe starting with Stuffed Portabello Mushrooms from a supermarket recipe card.
