Famed TV chef Nigella Lawson has had one rough year. After photos circulated of Nigella's husband Charles Saatchi appearing to choke her while the couple were at lunch, she filed for separation but did not issue a public statement.
Now, the British-born chef and TV host has broken her silence in a subtle way. Yesterday, the mom of two tweeted a recipe for holiday hotcakes, adding that it was a perfect way to "show support." She then added the hashtag "Team Nigella."

53-year-old Nigella is clearly trying to rally her fans during a trying time. Her divorce from billionaire mogul Saatchi has gotten ugly as several former assistants to the couple have come forward with allegations that Nigella is a habitual cocaine user and that she allowed the assistants to embezzle tens of thousands of pounds from her husband in exchange for keeping the drug addiction a secret.
As the court case unfolds, Nigella's future as a judge on the cooking competition show The Taste is up in the air. The show is slated to return for a second season in January.
