Sweet Nigella



If you've been around here awhile or know me at all, you will know that I have a crazy love of cookbooks. I love to buy them, I love to use them, I even love to read them...just like novels.

A week after Christmas, my daughter & I were at Barnes & Noble. I saw Nigella Lawson's cookbook, Nigella Kitchen, for 50% off. I love to watch Nigella. There's just something about her...maybe her British accent, maybe how eloquently she speaks of the food...I don't know...I just love her.

Anyway, I picked up her book, scanned through it & talked myself out of buying it. Several days later? Total regret. Why didn't I just buy it? It was 50% off for Pete's sake!

The following week, my daughter & I went to Barnes & Noble again. (Book lovers, the two of us.) As we were browsing, I came across her cookbook once again, fortunately still 50% off, & I quickly grabbed it.

Can I just tell you how much I love this cookbook? Honestly, I think this one is a keeper. It is filled with normal recipes with mostly normal ingredients and lots of great photos. I highly recommend it.

So, do you have any favorite cookbooks that you'd like to share with this cookbook crazed girl?

I love my Rachel Ray cookbook (30 Minute Meals 2) and my Cook Yourself Thin cookbook (from the show on Lifetime). I also love (but have never used) my Sopranos cookbook, and my Hello Cupcakes cookbook!!
All in all (I have alot of Pampered Chef cookbooks) I've probably got a collection of 30+ cookbooks! Eek!

I love cookbooks, too. I also enjoyed Nigella's show when it was on BBC America. I wonder if the B&N near me has it on sale? :D Which recipe is your favorite so far?

Mel said...

Yes, yes I do...my favorite is the Chinese takeout menu:) I have watched Nigella though and thought maybe even and I could make that. Enjoy your new book and hope you are staying warm.

I love Nigella's cookbooks! I don't have this particular one (tomorrow I'll be going to B&N to see if I can also find this half off), but I do have four others. Dense chocolate loaf cake is one of my all time faves.

ooohhh....I am going to have to check this out. I have a collection of cookbooks, right now I have all of the Barefoot Contessa cookbooks. We have a ritual during the Christmas holidays where we buy a new cookbook and try out recipes exclusively from that book over the holidays. The summer is usually another favourite time for this same ritual.
Gina....you have determined our book! Merci!
