... One of the books which I have had for years and I dig out regularly when I’m in the mood for baking is Nigella Lawson’s ‘How to be a Domestic Goddess’. As you can probably guess from the name it is a book about how to cook puddings, cakes, biscuits and other sweet things (although the chapter ... Read review

Ready Steady Bake! Diamond review Review with images

AdvantagesFabulous food; Really easy to follow; Great Recipes; Interesting information.

DisadvantagesSmall Print for the actual recipe

"...it is a book about how to cook puddings, cakes, biscuits and other sweet things (although the chapter about pastries and tarts is split into sweet and savoury). ====ABOUT THE AUTHOR==== Nigella Lawson was born in 1960 to Nigel Lawson (Chancellor of the Exchequer in Margaret Thatcher’s cabinet) and Vanessa Salmon studied medival and modern languages at Oxford University before becoming a book reviewer, restaurant critic and freelance journalist. ..."

Happiness is a preheating oven

Advantageslots of yummy cakes

Disadvantagesthe effect on your waistline, not a beginners guide

"...for the worst times. For me, How To Be A Domestic Goddess has therefore just been an extension of that way of life, whilst for most others it is probably a radical departure. The title is meant to be ironic - more about feeling like a domestic goddess than being one - the cookery equivalent of wearing sexy underwear, one might say. The idea is to take the fear and the displeasure out of the kitchen and put the fun back into baking. The book ..." Read review

Molton Chocolate Babycakes - mmmmmmm...

AdvantagesLoads of recipes, easy to follow, well laid out

DisadvantagesNot for the diet conscious, some ingredients are pricey

"One of my best friends loves baking, and she is very very good at it. At the time of this book coming out one of her flatmates bought a copy, and on cold winter nights we would often crowd round her flat making cakes! Mmmmm. When she left the flat to move elsewhere we decided that we each needed a copy of our own, and it had now steadily turned into a favourite pasttime. However busy our year my friends and I always arrange to have a Christmas dinner ..." Read review

Chain me to the kitchen sink and beat me! Review with images

AdvantagesReliable recipes, put in context

DisadvantagesYou may just put on a bt of weight as once you've started you can't stop!

"...will tell you where and how she came by the recipe, how she will overcome a tricky step in the process or even variations on a theme. The narrative is typically Nigella and, if you've seen her television programmes you'd be hard pushed not to hear her ever enthusiastic voice in the prose. There's little that's dictatorial about the style of Nigella's cooking and writing but you will find some handy notes about the quality of ingredients where they ..." Read review

Mmmmm, something smells good

Advantagesso real you can taste every image

Disadvantagesexpensive. genuine risks to arteries and waistline

"...a generation that simply knew how to bake and cook. My Mum seemed to know as well, whilst not having the endless afternoons of a grandparent to let me play with pastry offcuts, she always turned out fantastic-looking birthday cakes and biscuits alongside daily wholesome, home-cooked meals. I hated cooking as a child and did anything possible to avoid it at home and school, and as a consequence managed to leave home barely able to feed myself without ..." Read review
