Doris Day Tribute Menu

Doris Day Tribute Menu

So sad to hear the news about Doris yesterday. I love her so much! After living under a misapprehension that she was a twee, girl next door type for many years I actually WATCHED one of her films (Pillow Talk) and immediately became a big fan. She is utterly fabulous...

Tessie O’Shea’s Egg Juice

Tessie O’Shea’s Egg Juice

It's not a very appetising recipe title is it? At the beginning of this year, I pledged to make one thing a month from the Tessie O'Shea Slimming Cookbook and I am a bit behind, so expect TWO slightly weird dishes from Tessie's 1970s kitchen this month. Hoorah!...

Dinah Shore’s Sunday Baked Eggs

This morning in bed the conversation went like this: Mr Rathbone: What are you blogging about? Me: Dinah Shore's Sunday Baked Eggs. Mr Rathbone: Whose eggs? Me: Dinah Shore's Eggs. Mr Rathbone: Dinosaurs Eggs? I think they found some of those in the Antarctic. This...

Ruth Roman’s Caesar Salad

Ruth Roman’s Caesar Salad

Since making Grace Kelly's Caesar Salad I've been inclined to have a couple of heads of romaine lettuce in the crisper rather than little gems. That is the first time I've ever used the word CRISPER, but you know what I mean, that drawer that is at the bottom of the...

Crossroads Motel Pizza

Crossroads Motel Pizza

OK, so Crossroads is more cathode ray tube than the silver screen but my justification for this post is the amazing Noele Gordon. She was the star of the iconic TV soap that I remember well from my youth, Crossroads. This ran for over 20 years on British TV from...

Robert Quarry’s Garlic Potatoes

Robert Quarry’s Garlic Potatoes

I am back from my holiday where I have to admit, I ate like a piglet. There was so much amazing food including slip sole at my favourite restaurant in the whole wide world - The Sportsman in Seasalter. Top Cat! Also, a new discovery and possibly already now my SECOND...

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

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...

Peter Fonda Blender Breakfast

Peter Fonda Blender Breakfast

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...

Living My Life Like Jean Harlow

Living My Life Like Jean Harlow

When I think of Jean Harlow, I always think of her like this... so when I saw that my lovely internet chum Samantha of Musings of a Classic Film Addict was co-hosting a Jean Harlow Blogathon I thought to myself, I'm going to spend a whole day in bed wearing a sequined...

Yep, you read that right! Butt-chive! It's time for February's Tessie O'Shea recipe. It's from chapter 2 of her brilliant Slimming Cookbook in the Hors D'Oeuvre and Snacks section Naturally I chose it because of the recipe title. Tessie likes to shorten words so butt...

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...
