Happy 12th Birthday Silver Screen Suppers – my favourite dozen movie star recipes!

I can’t believe that I’ve been writing this blog for 12 years – goodness me.  So much has changed in that time.  When I began I was a broken-hearted singleton living on a houseboat on the Thames.  My tabletop cooker had to be turned on with a pair of pliers… Now I am a landlubber […]

Natalie Woods’ Huevos Rancheros

Natalie is in the news at the moment.  Will we ever know what really happened on that boat?  I doubt it.  It’s making me very sad reading about it.   I’ve written here before about how much I love Natalie, and I always think about her when I have Huevos Rancheros made to her recipe. […]

Natalie Wood’s Huevos Rancheros

Ahh, the splendour of Natalie’s Huevos Rancheros, now probably my default Saturday breakfast.  Even when engaged in baking 14 loaves of beer bread, a couple of Saturdays ago: I managed to rustle some up, to give me sustenance.  I added some red peppers to Natalie’s recipe, as I had some that needed using up.  Other […]

Natalie Wood’s Huevos Rancheros

I had a raging hangover on Saturday morning.  On Friday night I stayed up late at Mr R’s place, drinking beer and watching Madness videos.  I’d forgotten how good they were.  I think we watched this about 13 times… Cracks me up!  Heartily recommended watching, especially for all my readers across the pond who may […]

Natalie Wood’s Huevos Rancheros

The best thing about having a blog, is that you get to meet chums through the internet that you would never ever meet otherwise.  Such a chum is Greg Swenson who has just published this brilliant cookbook: Greg lives in Greece, and he and I have been pen pals for a year and a day […]
