"The trouble with much modern cooking is that the mood it induces in the cook is one of skin-of-the-teeth efficiency, all briskness and little pleasure. Sometimes that's the best we can manage, but at other times we don't want to feel stressed and overstretched, but like a domestic goddess, trailing nutmeggy fumes of baking pie in our languorous wake" --fromHow to Be a Domestic Goddess

How to Be a Domestic Goddess is not about being a goddess, but about feeling like one. What this deliciously mouthwatering cookbook demonstrates is that it's not actually hard to bake a pan of muffins or a sponge layer cake, but the appreciation and satisfaction they bring are disproportionately high. Filled with over 220 gorgeously illustrated recipes, this book understands our anxieties, feeds our fantasies, and puts cakes, pies, pastries, preserves, puddings, breads, and cookies back in our own kitchens. The domestic goddess has to maintain her (or his) cool when faced with pastry, of course--but with Nigella Lawson's guidance, even puff pastry can be pain-free.

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.
