Elizabeth Taylor’s Diet Breakfast

Elizabeth Taylor’s Diet Breakfast

I went back to basics recently as I know there is an awful lot of eating and drinking ahead over the next couple of weeks. I had an Elizabeth Taylor breakfast of one piece of unadorned toast, a cup of coffee and an apple. It was so simple and actually pretty...
Elizabeth Taylor’s Protein Drink

Elizabeth Taylor’s Protein Drink

Well, this was weird.  I think if I had made this before my experiments with the Peter Fonda’s “Easy Rider Smoothie” and his sister Jane Fonda’s Smoothie I might have thought this was groovy.  BUT, I am now used to protein drinks that...

Battenburgbelle is writing a cookbook.  It’s mostly for her daughter (my Goddaughter) who will be flying the nest soon and BB wants her to have a collection of recipes that are do-able for a beginner.  She asked if I would contribute something and I...

Elizabeth Taylor’s Taylor-Made Diet Day One

Ooh, I do love a diet plan.  Where it is all laid out in black and white what you should have for your breakfast, lunch and tea.  But it’s not easy to follow many days in a row when you are a girl about town and have a job to go to that takes you far away from...

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...

Regular readers may remember that I used to have a monthly column over at the wonderful Eat Drink Films website.  Well, this lovely intenet magazine is now an intermittant arrival in my inbox, rather than a weekly one, and I’m happy to say that the last...

Elizabeth Taylor’s Diet – 6 Breakfasts

My 6 day writing retreat has come to an end. Oh, it was so lovely! I’ve got Columbo coming out of my ears… I decided that as I was out of my own environment, it was a good chance for me to take a break from some bad habits. So I didn’t have any booze...
Elizabeth Taylor’s Diet – Day Seven

Elizabeth Taylor’s Diet – Day Seven

It’s day one of my writing retreat. I will be totally on my own with nobody to speak to except this cat for 6 days.  Luckily, Milky is a Columbo fan, as it’s all about Columbo this week.   Today, I had to extend my arms as long as I possibly...

Elizabeth Taylor’s Chicken Steamed in Wine

Being a family of one and following recipes written for 6-8 results in a freezer bursting at the seams with spare portions of delicious  but mostly unidentifiable things.  I wouldn’t usually serve something from the freezer to company but needs must.  I...

Elizabeth Taylor’s Chicken Steamed in Wine

I do so wish I lived in America and/or Canada.  Tonight on TV is the premiere of “Liz and Dick” starring Lindsay Lohan as Liz.  Through my day job I know a lot more about La Lohan than is really necessary and I’d love to see how she gets on...
