Beating even J. K. Rowling for Author of the Year 2000 (The British Book Awards), Nigella Lawson has become a household name in the UK, selling almost a quarter of a million copies of her first award-winning book,How to Eat, and over 150,000 copies of her new bookHow to be a Domestic Goddessin the first two months. The feel-good cookbook for our stressed-out lives,How to be a Domestic Goddessis not about being a goddess, but about feeling like one. What this deliciously reassuring and mouthwatering cookbook demonstrates is that it's not actually hard to bake a tray of muffins or an upside-down cake, or to create everything from brownies to bagels, peach cream pie to pizza, rhubarb schnapps to paradise chutney -- but that the satisfaction they bring are disproportionately high. Here is a book that understands our anxieties and feeds our fantasies, and makes the art of comfort cooking simple and alluring for the modern cook.

Now that I've tried a couple recipes I feel I can say I've finished reading it, though obviously, I'm not really done.
But the recipes were easy to follow and the food was yummy, and there are so many good ideas.

A great book for cake recipes...or just staring at the pages and drooling.

Her gingerbread cake recipe has become a staple when I'm feeling lazy and want to make a sure-fire crowd pleaser

I liked this cookbook a lot. There are a lot of nice looking cake recipes and many of them are quite simple. Some of the recipes are a little more complex and I find that the icings she uses are really heavy. Other than that, its a great book.

Contains recipes for cakes, cookies, some breads, and a few savoury recipes.
