WATCHING delicious meals being prepared by the saintly Nigella Lawson ( pictured) is a little bit like having your cake and eating it too.
Tonight the domestic goddess whips up an old- fashioned free- form trifle that most of you will be able to make with ingredients from the pantry.
And watch out for a great simple pizza that the kids will love.
Just some of the other scrummy meals Nigella will dish up in this series include a sumptuous roast seafood for some of her famished friends after work; a steaming bowl of pasta with salami for ravenous kids; her soothing ‘‘ mother’s praised chicken’’; a decadent chocolate peanut butter cheesecake for the hungry hordes and a restorative Thai chicken noodle soup.
Nigella is a step above for two reasons: she refuses to take herself too seriously and, more importantly, there isn’t a hint of reduced- fat cream in sight.
