Martha Raye’s Chicken Livers en Brochette

Martha Raye’s Chicken Livers en Brochette

I am on Doctor's Orders to eat liver once a week but I rarely do, so when I spotted this, I was on it like a bonnet. I totally love me a jacket potato and one with livers? Once again I couldn't find my metal skewers so I went for the disposable chopsticks option... I...

Boris Karloff’s Potted Shrimp

One of the bad habits I have as a person prone to clutter is over-buying of ingredients. I'm not as bad as the people in Marie Kondo's book who buy thousands of toilet rolls or stockpile hundreds of toothbrushes, but I am certainly guilty of it to a lesser degree when...

Summer is a'coming in and mornings in my flat no longer involve breaking through icicles to get into the kitchen. Therefore the Easy Rider Smoothie is BACK! I really love this smoothie, I love the taste of the spirulina and it really feels like a HEALTH TONIC. I...

Happy Birthday Cooking With Columbo!

Happy Birthday Cooking With Columbo!

It's a whole year since I published the Cooking With Columbo cookbook, I can hardly believe it.  Ages ago I wrote a blog post all about the exciting day I had when the book came out, but I haven't published it until now.  I think this will be a fun read for...

Vincent Price’s Oatmeal Lace Cookies

It's been a while since there was a FAIL in the Silver Screen Suppers kitchen, but these cookies were most definitely a fail. I'd never made them before and I was making them in advance of my "Living My Life Like Angela Lansbury Day" (blog post coming very soon about...

William Shatner’s Deluxe Burgers

Sometimes I cook a movie star recipe and for some unknown reason, I don't blog about it immediately after I cook it. Then of course, tempus fugit and I forget the dish even existed. Such is the case with these burgers. This recipe was included in my Cooking With...

Carol Channing’s Hello Dolly Cookies

I was really sad to hear that Carol Channing had gone to the Hollywood in the sky recently. I was lucky enough to meet her once and she was a STITCH. In this photo, she has just told me and my chum Caroline a very rude joke about Tallulah Bankhead. Yes, we are holding...

David Niven’s Fish Cakes

I am a person who likes to follow a recipe. I am not a freestyler. But I make an exception for David Niven. I love his fish cakes recipe, because he basically issues a carte blanche for making them however the hell you like. So here's his recipe, just as he wrote...

David Niven’s Julgrot (Christmas Rice Pudding)

In the heatwave we had here this summer in the UK, I was reading Nigel Slater's Eating for England on my commute to and from work and it gave me a powerful urge to eat some rice pudding.  I’m sure it was partly to do with the sudden changes of season we get here...

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...

Vincent Price’s Chicken Livers en Brochette

It was the idea of TOAST POINTS that made me want to try this recipe.  I had never heard of such a thing before and now I am obsessed with the idea of serving TOAST POINTS with everything.  Not least because in a recently watched Murder, She Wrote, a waiter noted that...

Merle Oberon’s Goodwood Herrings

In my massive decluttering purge I came across this recently... It was in a box of paperwork from a house I lived in about 15 years ago and I have no recollection of buying it, but it has brought me a lot of fun just recently. I put a photo of it on Instagram and my...

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 effectively are the texture and...

I am a big fan of coleslaw in any shape or form.  I don't mind if it is hoity-toity coleslaw or bog standard supermarket coleslaw, I love it all.  Although I haven't seen it on the shelves recently I am particularly fond of "Mexican coleslaw" which I am sure is a...

Diana's breakfast mash-up has got lots of things in it that I like, and as I've reported here before, I do love me a recipe that serves one.  Living alone as I do, it pleases me when recipe writers tip their hats to those of us who aren't part of a nuclear family. I...
