Nigella Express {Food}

I got me the Nigella Express Book some time ago when I was still a meat eater, and all the Meat recipes was so appealing to me. Now that I am a Pescetarian* all I see are the Vegetarian and Seafood dishes. Its Amazing how things change when you change your perspective.

This book has many yummy Seafood, Vegetarian and Meat dishes. I would say its 85% Pescetarian.
All the Recipes are Easy and Quick to Prepare. Link below to Nigella’s Website where the book is available in Online Stores. You can also check your local book store.
