Diana Dors’ Breakfast Prunes

No sniggering at the back please! Prunes have all kinds of negative connotations here in the UK, I wonder if it is the same in other parts of the world?  Ah, I see from a quick Google around the block, that it is the same everywhere!   I am doing that thing that many, many […]

Diana Dors’ Breakfast Bean Omelette

All is chaos at Silver Screen Suppers Towers as the landlord asked if I would like my lounge painted.  Although the idea of having to move everything out of there, before applying the KonMari decluttering method, filled me with the fear, with the help of Mr R, it is done.  Here’s how it looks.  It […]

Eat Like the Stars – Diana Dors

I just love Diana.  I loved her when she was a glamour-puss in the 1950s: and I loved her later in life, when she got a little chubby: Then in the 1980s, Diana set herself a dieting goal of losing 52 lbs. (25.5 kg) by her 52nd birthday, appearing regularly on the TV-am breakfast show here in the UK, […]

Diana Dors’ Flageolet Beans with Tuna

The Diana Dors diet continues.  I love tuna, and I love beans, so therefore this was a hit with me.  The dressing was surprisingly lemony and it’s a nice sturdy portion for one.  Very satisfactory indeed thanks Diana! Finely grated rind of 1/4 lemon 3 tablespoons Slimmer’s Oil-free French Dressing 1 teaspoon snipped chives 75g […]

On a Spinster’s Sunday there must be eggs too…  So here is what I had for my breakfast today.  Mmmmm – beans, eggs, bacon (well ham this time…) all in a fluffy package. I’ve written about the Diana Dors diet here before, it’s such a genius multi-media plan and I love it.  I might make […]

Book Test Cook 27 – Diana Dors’ Easy Fruit Cake

Oh the shame of it, like a stake through the heart.  The judges at the Muswell Hill Horticultural Society Spring Show thought my fruit cake was “very tasty but just a little dry”.  Oof!  This post is therefore a note to self about what might have caused this.  For the recipe is destined for the […]

Diana Dors’ Breakfast Bean Omelette

I am on a diet.  Boring but true.  As I was home alone on Bank Holiday Monday I thought I’d check out what Diana recommended for breakfast on the X-cel Diet.  I have much to say about Diana and her diet.  In fact, am slightly obsessed with it.  As I am with all things Diana […]

At the risk of showing off, I am going to mention again that my Diana Dors Easy Fruit Cake won second prize at the Muswell Hill Horticultural Show on Saturday.  My feathers were all puffed up with pride. The morning of the show was always going to be hectic as I had to make a […]

My Diana Dors obsession has been growing lately.  There has been the […]

Diana Dors’ Cheese Moussaka

Only the prospect of a man I really fancy coming round with a copy of the Diana Dors LP under his arm would ever make me cook an aubergine.  But it’s happening tomorrow so I have done it.  Mr H has found a copy of “Swingin Dors” and is personally delivering it.   I am […]

Diana Dors’ Bhuma Ghosht

I have a Diana Dors curry in the slow cooker and will be channeling her bombshell energy on Wednesday as I’m off to an awards ceremony in a dress that I think is the kind of va-va-voom item that Diana herself would have worn.  I will feel UPHOLSTERED and whether I win the award I […]

Diana Dors Bhuma Ghosht

“I was the first home-grown sex symbol, rather like Britain`s naughty seaside postcards.” Oh my stars, Diana was so LUSCIOUS. Just gorgeous. And our viewing of “Yield to the Night” proved that she could act too, given half the chance. What a humdinger of a movie. It was a long awaited Silver Screen Supper in […]
