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.

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.
