I am having a freind over for dinner at the weekend, unfortunately she has just been diagnosed as allergic to Wheat, Dairy and mildly intolerant of eggs. Can you please help in finding a tasty pudding that is not just fruit? She can eat dark chocolate... so I was hoping for something chocolatey and yummy?

Nigella's recipes use large eggs - if egg sizes are not available how can I measure to make sure I use the right size? I am looking at a recipe that uses 3 eggs.

I've roasted several chickens over the years and so far haven't poisoned anyone with them? However, even when the juice runs clear when I cut into the space between the leg and breast - the leg joints are often bloody near the bone when I take them off the body - this makes me nervous and I usually put it in for a few minutes more - just to be sure. I never had this problem when I roasted a chicken in Ireland (where I come from) and this has only happened since I moved to the US! What am I doing wrong? I don't want to poison anyone and my chicken is usually very moist (I do the brandied chicken from Nigella Express) and delicious, but just want to see what I'm doing wrong. Many thanks.
