That meatloaf wellington with boiled eggs in it? I am so into that.

I thought this series was delightful. Nadiya is so engaging, especially as she goes to various industrial/agricultural sources to investigate food, or runs through a quick and fairly easy recipe. You do need a well equipped spice/ pantry cabinet.

The set, whether it is her own home kitchen or in a studio, is beautiful. I assume it is filled with her homeware line of kitchen/bakeware products -- really lively colors!

She has changed her personal dress style as well -- the bright colors are very attractive.

Her recipes are fairly simple and include a lot of what she calls "cheats." That simply means store bought shortcuts. An expert cook might not enjoy her recipes, but I am a lousy cook and frankly so tired of baked ziti. She has me interested in trying the baked falafel, and a few other recipes.

Nadiya is great, and the recipes I've tried so far have all been good: instant noodles, pancake traybake, poke bowls, and peanut chicken traybake.

Yes I really loved the colours and her super bright clothes and bubbly personality. There are some nice ideas with the recipes, but I do feel they went way too hard into the "time saver" aspects. Some of them don't save much/any time at all, eg the giant pancake - cooking pancakes at the stove is super fast and easy! Also it got irritating having her go on and on about it, the recipes stand on their own, they don't need the hook.

The other thing I noticed is that it was very British, by which I mean there were nowhere near enough green vegetables in the recipes. Much of what she was making was not very healthy food - not necessarily unhealthy, but definitely lacking.

That all being said, I'm making those egg rolls this weekend!
