Forever Nigella #25 Roundup



It was so fun to host Forever Nigella for April!  I loved seeing all the colorful entries.  I also enjoyed getting to see some blogs I haven’t visited before, and getting to virtually meet some of you on twitter and through comments.  Foodie bloggers are some of the best!  And we excel at trying new things, so these monthly events are exciting and fun. I hope some of you  that are not yet taking part will jump right in with the rest of us. 

Here are our lovely, colorful entries this month:

Naomi from It’s a fine, fine life adapted Mauritian Prawn Curry for the Slow Cooker, which she used daily for the month of April in her own Month of Slow Cooking.  Beautiful and a time saver!


Sally the Recipe Junkie (who has challenged herself to make everything in How to Be a Domestic Goddess) made this Raspberry Polenta Cake, loosely based on Nigella’s Rhubarb Cornmeal Cake.  And then she poured cream on it, which means we were destined to be friends.

Sally also made Chicken Under A Brick for her entry in a Random Recipe Challenge, so fun! 

Caroline from Caroline Makes…. made Nigella’s sauce for Yellow Spaghetti with gorgeous saffron.  So simple and pretty.

Elizabeth from Elizabeth’s Kitchen made this showstopper cake.  Flora's Famous Courgette Cake (Courgette = Zucchini if you didn’t know.)  Since it is made with a vegetable, it must be healthy, right?  Elizabeth’s lime curd is made with local eggs which gives the curd its sunny hue.


Speaking of sunny hues, here is Caroline from Cake, Crumbs and Cooking and her Sunrise “Rainbow” cake using Nigella’s Buttermilk Birthday Cake recipe.  I want to eat this cake!  This was also my 5 year old’s favorite entry.

Lastly, here is Risotto alla Milanese from Sam of Smart Cookie Sam.  Her risotto was something she just happened to pick up on an Italian holiday.  It looks delicious!

Many thanks to Sarah at Maison Cupcake for creating Forever Nigella and allowing me to host this last month.  Now on to Forever Nigella #26 with Mimi at Chef Mimi Blog.

Ooh yay! :)
There's a nice selection of recipes in this round up. I especially like the buttermilk birthday cake in the sunset hues.
