The presenter was only warning people, and if you don't believe me, then it is on Radio 4 i-player, available to download. She was called Mrs Winifred Dobbins.

Hi Pixie, have you tried Nigella's christmas morning muffins so scrummy but very rich so I usually use a mini muffin tin x

Hi M inx! No not tried them..will have a look. I do like Sarah chase "Cranberry Harvest" muffins. I tried a pear one, tinned pears in juice diced them up, then boiled down the juice with a bit of sugar and fresh ginger grated. When reduced added the pears back so it was about a cup along with fresh ginger (not too wet) then added that to the muffin and walnut mix with some dried ginger. Into the muffin papers and sprinkled sugar,ground ginger and extra walnut on top. Added a bit of wheatgerm too cos it's good for you!
Will find Nigella's book and investigate.
Hope you well and nice to have you back!

Has anyone got any of Emeril Lagasse cookbooks? Seen him on Food Network seems ok but wondered about his books.

In reply to an earlier post on 20 Nov 2012 10:50:46 GMT
I could be wrong, J. C.? - but I think Charlie has mentioned that she has?
And I'd be very interested to know more about him and his cookbooks too.

Although there doesn't appear to be reviews on the second one J.C there are if you continue down.
I think his more recent books look good but I bought these for £1 or so...can't complain!

It's in the first one I think..just got in but here's the recipe from my pink book

2 1/2 tbsp paprika
2 tbsp salt...I used a little less,
2 tbsp garlic powder, use a little less if you like
1 tbsp fresh ground black pepper
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp cayenne
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tbsp dried thyme

Mix the whole lot up in a jar and use to rub on chicken, add to rice and a rub for meat. General seasoning.
It is spicy..I made 1/2 amount first time to see what I thought.....I use it in jambalya too.

Delish! The one with leeks in the topping? yum!

I'm cooking spicy prawns and spinach with pasta.

The Bayou Blast in the book is called Emeril's seasoning but it is the same.

Hahaha. 75p in my local British Heart Foundation shop was POLPO: A Venetian Cookbook (Of Sorts)

Needless to say I snapped it up before someone else did (yes pixie I'm looking at you)

Thanks for letting us know, Larry! - I'm quite fascinated by this one?!?!
Although I'm still trying to figure out what on Earth would be in it? It certainly isn't giving me any ideas by revealing nothing but the cover?! - has anybody got any suggestions as to what recipes it could contain?
