Nigella winner and alcoholic fruit!!

The winner of the Nigella Christmas cookbook is .......


Number 34, picked by my little one as is down for today! :)

Please email me your address Fiona and i will get the book sent out to you :)

I am so tired this weekend the only baking i have managed so far are soaking some apricots, prunes and dates in alcohol (Disaronno, Grand Marnier and Rum respectively) Tomorrow i will cover them with marzipan and dip in dark chocolate. Let them drip dry and harden ready to go into little boxes as gifts :D


  1. What a fabulous idea. Hope you will post a pic when they're done!

  2. Ooh, that sounds nice, I might try that!

  3. Mmm, that sounds lovely. Well done Fiona. You are a very lucky lady.
    Hope the move went well. Early night tonight then?

  8. Ohhhhh my goodness. Literally drooling at my keyboard here. They aound right up my street... don't think they would make it to the giftbox stage! And I'd be really uncouth and drink the alcohol afterwards too :D
