How to be a Domestic Goddess- How to be a Domestic Goddess by our beloved Nigella Lawson is not about being a goddess, but about feeling like one. What this deliciously reassuring and mouthwatering cookbook demonstrates is that it's not hard to bake a tray of muffins or a sponge layer cake -- but the rewards they bring are disproportionately high. There's everything from cupcakes to chocolate cakes; from brownies to bagels; from gooseberry-cream crumble to double apple pie; from pizza to pistachio macaroons; scones and muffins; cheesecakes and steamed syrup sponge; from baklava to a Barbie cake; as well as children's cooking, Christmas baking and other wonderful family festive treats -- all illustrated with ravishing photographs throughout.

How To Eat & The Pleasures principles of Good Food- In the introduction to this volume, Nigella Lawson explains why it is called ‘How To Eat’, rather than ‘How To Cook’: she believes that it is impossible to be a good cook if you don’t enjoy eating.  She talks about shopping for food, preparing it, cooking it, serving it and savouring it.  I haven’t found them so far, but I’m sure there are tips on doing the washing-up, too. This is the kind of cookery book that you can enjoy reading, with the added bonus that it’s packed with great recipes.
