NigellApp....Quick Recipe Collection

A lovely friend of mine, who is waiting patiently for a long over due letter from me (.....I promise it is on its way!) sent me an email link to this fabulous bit of kit!

Now it does unfortunately rely on you having an iphone! Perhaps you were debating upgrading to one, or were 'shall I, shan't I' -ing about one and another phone! Well if you are, in anyway as in love with Nigella, as I am, then this could be the post that sways you!

Nigella has a new App, that she is terming the NigellApp! It contains a collection of quick recipes, videos (brilliant, what can be better than Nigella in your pocket?!) and a shopping list option connected to all the recipes. It is a joy!

It is like having one of her cookery books in your bag/ pocket! It is just as pretty, retro, homey but elegant. Not only is it gorgeous to look at but the recipes are wonderful too. I was watching the videos while waiting for parents meeting and debating what to make as a late supper for me and MrB. Genius!

When alone yesterday, smallest B napping, I had a to make a quick lunch before getting back to work. I choose another fabulous, super quick recipe - Mushroom Steak Sandwich!

Marks and Spencers currently have huge Portobello Mushrooms, picked daily, on offer! They are mahoosive and of course, delicious!

Place your mushroom in a roasting tin, dot with butter, sprinkle on a little handful of fresh parsley and a finely chopped garlic clove. Roast in a hot oven (200c). This doesn't take long, for it to soften and start oozing black juices.Split a ciabatta roll, place face down in the roasting tin to soak up any of the juice, smooth on a layer of Dijon mustard. Place your mushroom on top, scatter some salt on top and a squeeze of lemon juice. I then stuffed mine with some baby spinach! A simply perfect interlude to the day! Warm buttery, garlicy sustenance, in under 20 mins + trashy magazine + silent house = lunchtime bliss

i have eaten these so lovingly - being a veggie those schroooms are like meat to me. I add garlic to my butter and fry the schroom in that before the toasted ciabatta, mmmmm x
