Overview

How to Be a Domestic Goddess: Baking and the Art of Comfort Cooking by Nigella Lawson

Nigella Lawson's How to Be a Domestic Goddess is about not only baking, but the enjoyment of being in the kitchen, taking sensuous pleasure in the entire process, and relishing the outcome. Nigella's deliciously reassuring and mouthwatering cookbook demonstrates that it's not terribly difficult to bake a batch of muffins or a layer cake, but the appreciation and satisfaction they bring are disproportionately high. At last, a book that understands our anxieties, feeds our fantasies, and puts cakes, pies, pastries, breads, and biscuits back into our own kitchens.

I've had a lot of Nigella's recipes from other books turn out dry, overly sweet or overcooked even after following the directions exactly. But with this book she seems to have gotten it down. The Pain Au Chocolate Pudding is especially good.

This is a wonderful baking book that incorporates new recipes and older, classic recipes with twists that make you want to spend hours on end in the kitchen.

Lovely recipes and directions are easy to follow. Beautiful layout and paper, beautiful photos, but could be more of them. At least for me it’s important and inspiring to see how final product should look, so the lack of pictures makes it 4 starts instead of 5.

Have been entranced by Miss.Lawson since her first food show. Such a laid back atsmosphere in Her Kitchen and Pantry.Easy recipes, grilling in the rain and lots of Family&Love abounding.Her late husband and sister resonated in this book.Enjoyed the "no problem w/company feel".I have purchased Every cookery Book by Miss.Lawson since they became available.Some from the United Kingdom.Prefer those for the accuracy of the Metric System in cooking&baking.As Americans, we really Have Lost Out. We use this method Always.Best Results. Miss.Lawson has been called by others "the Queen of Peas".Bruno, her son had basically disliked green vegetables as a child. Tho. in a disquise, He ate them! A great "starter book for those interested in a former "foodie writer", whose Father happened to Be the Exchequer of Britain."A posh Deal".Yet, she never sat on Her Laurels. Admired greatly for that alone...

I love the way Nigella Lawson writes. Her passion for food and cooking is contagious. Everything I've tried has been great! I especially recommend the banana bread and the cream cheese brownies.

How to be a Domestic Goddess has to be one of the best cookbooks that I have ever used. Nigella makes cooking a fun event that doesn't have to be a chemistry class. I also recommend Nigella Bites and How To Eat.

I just received this cookbook for a Christmas present and I love it! The pictures are beautiful and the recipes make your mouth water just reading them. My favorite section is the one for kids. The recipes look tasty and fun for children. This is definitely a keeper!

for anyone who loves to read cookbooks like you read a novel! I actually keep this one on my book-shelf in the den rather than in the kitchen! Truly delightful and many delicious recipes await you. It's fun and simply written with beautiful pictures that make you want to try every recipe! Enjoy!

This is a delightful, well-written and deliciously presented book. I've used this book so much in my small NYC apartment, the pages have stains on them of flour, sugar, cinammon and nutmeg--a little fruit juice as well. Nijinsky, my dog, has enjoyed spending time with me in the kitchen and trying out the many treats I have been creating from my new-found hobby, cooking. My friends from my company have enjoyed several of the baked goods. The photos are beautiful. This book has made me a true Domestic God! Thanks!
