Nigella and the Golden Globes

Last night we made a couple of recipes out of the Nigella Express 
cookbook to enjoy while watching the Golden Globes.  Jim and I 
like to have a nice meal and make a event out of it.    We made 
Nigella's Maple Chicken 'n' Ribs and her Warm Potato Salad.......
both were fabulous!

I really enjoyed the show and loved watching all the fashion on 
the red carpet.  My favorite dress was worn by Olivia Wilde in 
Marchesa  and I loved how Halee Steinfeld looked age appropriate 
Prabul Gurung cream dress.  I thought she was amazing in True Grit.  

I was dissappointed that Michelle Williams didn't win for Blue 
Valentine and also that Sophia Vergara didn't win for Modern Family.  
She is hilarious as Gloria.......she's my husbands favorite too.  Go figure....  

As for the men......Jake Gyllenhaall looked amazing and it's always fun 
to see Johnny Depp at an awards show but he didn't bring VP  (my 
favorite singer) and that really bummed me out.....  Sigh.......

Click here for Nigella's recipe for Maple Chicken 'n' Ribs.  

Nigella's Warm Potato Salad 

4 1/2 lbs. baby new potatoes
4 green onions, finely sliced
1 tablespoon garlic-infused oil
8 slices bacon
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar 
1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard

Cook potatoes in a pan of salted boiling water for about 20 minutes or 
until tender.  Drain the potatoes and cut them in half.  

In a large bowl mix potatoes with green onions.

Heat the oil in a skillet and cook the bacon until really crispy then transfer 
it to a plate.

Take the skillet off the heat and add the vinegar and mustard to the 
drippings and toss into the potato mixture.  

Top with bacon when ready to serve.

I'm getting really excited for the Oscars next month!  
Now..........what to serve............?


  1. I was disappointed that Johnny Depp didn't take home a trophy. Terrible to get nominated twice in the same category and STILL lose. Crying shame.

  2. Hi, Mika. I am passing by and following you back from Monday Mingle at I look forward to seeing you back every Monday to link your blog. Nice to meet you.

  3. These recipes look wonderful! I just love Nigella!!

    I normally LOVE Johnny Depp but did you see his rather egotistical expression when they read his name TWICE? He appeared as if he KNEW he would win...I was shocked that he seemed so conceited (and I was disappointed)...because of the facial expression that I had observed I am glad he didn't win!

  4. yum yum...looks like comfort food if I ever saw some!

  5. I think you should get a Golden Globe for your recipes! What would you wear??? This looks delicious! This one's going in the keeper file! Have a great week! Thanks for sharing.
