Hot Smoked Salmon and Spinach Pasta and Rory update

This was a revelation, so good and so so easy. I'd been to Waitrose and picked up 2 hot smoked salmon fillets for 85p!, some fresh Pasta (250g) and a bunch of reduced Dill. All I needed to add was a dollop of Creme Fraiche from the fridge and a handful of Spinach (wilted in the pasta water for the last minute of cooking) - DIVINE. Quick and easy meals like this are godsend in my house at the moment!

Snow-Flecked Brownies

Snow Flecked Brownies
As Nigella says 'they are dark, damp and melt in the mouth' - and they really are! These festive snow-flecked brownies come from my favourite Nigella book 'Feast' and I whipped them up for a family gathering last weekend. The recipe makes 20 bars - a lot you may think - but I can assure you there wont be any leftovers.


| Serves: Makes 20 | Prep Time: 15 Minutes | Cook Time: 25 Minutes | Total Time: 40 Minutes |


  • 375g Unsalted Butter
  • 375g Dark Chocolate
  • 6 eggs
  • 350g Caster Sugar
  • 1 TBSP Vanilla Extract
  • 225g Plain Flour
  • 1 TSP Salt
  • 250g White Chocolate Buttons


  • Step 1: Preheat oven to 180c/160C fan. Line sides and base of 33 x 23 x 5cm tin with baking parchment.
  • Step 2: Melt the butter and dark chocolate in heavy based saucepan over a low heat.
  • Step 3: In a measuring jug beat the eggs with the sugar and vanilla extract.
  • Step 4: Allow chocolate mixture to cool then add egg/sugar mix and beat well. Fold in flour and salt then stir in white chocolate.
  • Step 5: Pour brownie mix into tin and bake for 25 minutes.
