Nigella Lawson tweets holiday recipe to her supporters and fans!!

The tables have turned and TV chef Nigella Lawson has found herself in hot water!

We previously mentioned she's been accused of doing all sorts of cray drugs and could be called in for questioning in a legal battle with two of her former assistants and her ex-husband Charles Saatchi.

Apparently, her ex-assistants used to use her husband's credit card as a reward for keeping quiet about her intense drug use.

Once all that came to light, the poo hit the fan and people were divided, for and against Nigella.

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, as a thank you to support those who believed in her, Nigella tweeted:

Yum! 4-Ingredient Rustic Pizza Dough!

| Filed under: FoodRecipesMariko Amekodommo

Markio Knives

Pizza is one of my weaknesses! Here is a quick and easy dough recipe for making your own in minutes, using beer instead of yeast! For a gluten-free version, substitute your favorite gluten-free beer and flour mix, add 1 Tablespoon olive oil and bake a few minutes longer! Get creative with your toppings – right now my favorite is no sauce, crumbled gorgonzola, arugula, sliced pears and caramelized onions.

3 cups flour (plus extra for dusting / kneading)
1 Teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 bottle (or can) of beer

Preheat oven to 350. Add all dry ingredients to bowl, and stir. Slowly add in bottle of beer, mixing constantly until dough is formed (it will be sticky). Put dough on a floured surface, knead lightly (adding more flour if necessary) and roll to about ¼ inches thick. Place on pizza stone or baking sheet, use a fork to poke holes across the surface, and bake for 10 minutes.

Remove from oven, garnish with your favorite sauce, cheese and toppings, and bake for another 15-20 or until golden brown.

Get In Our Mouths! Raw Vegan & Gluten-Free Carrot Cake With Cashew Cream Cheese Frosting!

| Filed under: FoodRecipesMariko Amekodommo

Mariko Laugh

I love carrot cake! It’s one of the desserts I wish I could eat for every meal (it does have vegetables, right?) Here is a version where you get the entire flavor without the guilt. FitPerez fan Victoria from Stockton, California requested a 4 ingredient recipe for a healthy, low-carb cake – and here you go!

It’s also raw (no baking required) gluten-free and vegan! Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Carrot Cake

2 large carrots, peeled and chopped
1 ½ cups buckwheat, oat or almond flour
2 cups dried fruit (I use ½ dates, ½ dried pineapple, but experiment with raisins, apricots, etc)
½ cup dried coconut

Add all ingredients to food processor, and pulse until combined and sticks together. For this recipe, you can pour into an 8 in round pan (I like the spring-form type for easy removal) or lined cupcake tins. Spoon icing on top of carrot mixture, spread lightly, and put pan in refrigerator until hardened; at least 2 hours. Garnish with a dusting of fresh ground cinnamon or nutmeg, and its ready to serve!

Cashew Frosting

2 cups raw cashews, soaked in water for at least 2 hours
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons lemon or fresh orange juice
½ cup maple syrup or agave

Combine all ingredients in blender, until smooth. Add water (if needed) 1 teaspoon at a time, to get a frosting like consistency. Set-aside until ready to use.
