Saatchi: ‘No evidence’ ex-wife Nigella Lawson did drugs

Can someone look as gorgeous as her after 10 years or more of drug abuse? I refuse to believe that! No wonder Saatchi has no evidence!

Charles Saatchi, the millionaire ex-husband of celebrity chef Nigella Lawson, said Friday he believed his ex-wife had taken drugs but had no evidence of it, as he testified at the trial of two former assistants accused of fraud.

The former assistants, Italian sisters Francesca and Elisabetta Grillo, deny embezzling hundreds of thousands of pounds on company credit cards.

Allegations of drug use by Lawson were made in a pre-trial hearing for the case earlier this week, when an e-mail sent by Saatchi to Lawson in October was read out by the defense.

Best city in the world? Paris? No. It’s LONDON!

Best city in the world? Paris? No. It’s LONDON!

I came across this post a few days back, and it put a grin on my face because it just confirmed what we’ve been blabbering about for the past two years! London voted as the best city in the world leaving Sydney, Paris, New York and Rome behind! No city in this world can compare to what London can offer you. Shoreditch’s night life, Green park’s poshness, Camden Town’s craziness,shopping at Bond Street, late nights at Leicester square, the magic of winter wonderland and so much more. London has something to offer to everyone! No matter where you’re from and what language you speak, you will run into people from your motherland once you start looking at the right places! Being this one big crazy mixture of people from around the globe has it’s advantages too, in this case it was our favorite, The Food! World cuisine at the tap of an oyster card.

Hola Paella at Covent Garden market serves mouth watering paella and sangria.

Eat Mexican at Wahaca, Korean at Bi Bim Bap, Italian at Carluccio’s, Spanish paella’s at Covent Garden Market, Indian at Masala Zone, Pakistani at Tayyab’s, and if you want all that in one place then we have the alltime favorite, Jimmy’s, pretty much everywhere! Not just food, London has got some amazing options for shopping from goth fashion shopping at Camden Town to uber posh, Old Bond Street for your LV’s and Gucci’s.

Camden-Town

Must visit Camden Town market if you’re in mood for some goth fashion and bargains. Beware, there are a few upscale boutiques here and there!

Top labels at Old Bond Street. If you’re not into top labels, this area is good for a stroll too. I bumped into Shah Rukh Khan here, maybe you would too! 😀

The city is super safe for girls too, and the people..oh the people.. So polite, so nice! If the world was ending and we had a few months to live, we’d choose to spend those precious moments in London! That’s how much we love it!

No matter how weird you are, there's always place for you in London!

Chocolate Brownies..!

I have just started baking very recently and now almost addicted to it. The lack of good bakeries and patisseries in my area has always deprived me of gorging into delicious cakes, pastries, brownies etc. This inspired me to bake my own cake and each time i have baked something trust me it has turned out super delicious. The best thing about baking is you just need a handful of ingredients, Google a recipe, follow it to the exact measurement and there you have your own delicious piece of heaven.Yesterday i made a chocolate brownie for the first time and it turned out so amazing that i had to share it.

What are we cooking? – Chocolate Brownies…!

brownieFirst attempt at brownie! 5 stars to me-self!

What are we using?

150 Gms Chopped Dark Chocolate

100 Gms Butter

1 Cup Sugar

2 Tablespoon Cocoa Powder

1 Cup All Purpose Flour

1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

3 Large Eggs (For Egg-less Version use 1 cup condensed milk instead of eggs)

1/4 Teaspoon Salt

1/2 Cup Chopped Nuts or Chocolate Chips (optional)

What are we doing?

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180 degree C or 350 degree F for about 15 mins. Grease a baking tin with butter or line it with nonstick baking paper and set it aside.

Step 2: Melt the chopped chocolate and butter in a large bowl using a double boiler method (i.e. place the bowl with its contents on a sauce pan with simmering water on low heat). Stir constantly until the mixture is smooth.

Step 3: Remove from heat then add cocoa powder and sugar to the chocolate mix and whisk it. Next stir in the vanilla extract and eggs(one at a time). Whisk it to a silky smooth texture after each egg addition. Finally add the flour, salt and chocolate chips(optional) and mix the mixture well.

Step 4: Pour the mix into the greased pan and bake it  for about 20-25 mins or until set. I had sprinkled chopped nuts on top because i love the roasted flavor of nuts on a dry cracked crust. But that’s purely optional.

Step 5: Once done take it out of the oven and allow it to cool on a wire rack. Cut into your own desired size of pieces and serve warm or at room temperature. I drizzled a tablespoon of melted chocolate on top for extra chocolaty goodness.

Enjoy your deep chocolate flavor brownie with moist texture and a dry nutty crust.

Piece of heaven!Smother lots of chocolate sauce over the brownies for that extra goodness! And there you have it, a piece of heaven! BLISS ! ❤

I hope you have fun making your very own chocolate brownies. I think if I can make them being an amateur then anyone and everyone can bake them to absolute gorgeousness. For any queries and complaints please write us back and we’ll be happy to help you. 🙂

Love,

Maitri. (The other half)
