Mae West’s Salada de Tuna

I was craving Mae’s salad for lunch when I was at the supermarket today so I tried to remember what was in it on the hoof.  So this is basically Mae’s recipe with the addition of a few things I had knocking around the fridge – lettuce, rocket, some beetroot and a few cubes of […]

Mae West’s Salada de Tuna

Ooh Mae, I think it was having some of your Salada for lunch that made me break all the rules and go out with a fella last night.  What happened to my giving up men for Lent pledge?!  Ha ha!  Mae would have been proud of me.  I sat in an enormous fibre glass throne […]

Mae West’s Pumpkin Pie a la Robert

Much good humoured hilarity this week when Nazimova brought in the “Pumpkin Pie a la Robert” she had made from this month’s special recipe.  Naz is from Belgrade and had sent me an email saying that she’d never had Pumpkin Pie so had no idea what it should look or taste like.  Unfortunately she missed […]

Mae West’s Salada de Tuna

“Cultivate your curves…” Sure thing Mae, I will! Doesn’t Salada de Tuna sound much more fun than Tuna Salad? I was rustling some up in the kitchen just now when I heard a really, really loud plane fly past. This sometimes gives me the heeby jeebies, being so close to Centre Point – a very […]
