  1. Those muffins sound amazing! I'd love to try some of Nigella's recipes. Like you, I love baking and cooking for my family and friends. My most loved recipe book has to be 'fast fresh & fabulous' by Janelle Bloom! Some great homely recipes in there, including my favourite Portuguese custard tarts. My favourite online recipe resource is www.exclusivelyfood.com.au. Those girls know how to whip up a recipe or two, and they never fail! I promise. I just made their butter cake for my son's birthday. Amazing stuff. I think I've tried almost all their recipes now, and have never once had a failure. Thanks for the opportunity to win the gorgeous Nigella's cookbook, Allison & Stockland! Good luck everyone!

  3. I'm a huge Nigella fan (and oddly enough, so is my husband...) and love everything she whips up. My favourite thing to bake at home is Banana Bread. The kids love to help make it, it's quick to whip up and taste delicious too. Winning all round with that one! Kirsten Smith

    1. My husband was the one who got me into Nigella, he appreciates that real "home cook" feel she has. And I can suppose her natural good looks doesn't hurt either.

  4. I have to admit, I'm a terrible cook and tend to throw things together and hope for the best. I'm trying really hard to get my act together and need all the help (and recipes) I can get lol x

  8. My favourite thing to bake? There are too many things! I love having the knowledge that I can bake anything, I can cook whatever my heart desires. Crossoints? Done it (albeit took a few days) Bagels? Nailed them. But my favourite? Well I'd have to say the facourite is our weekend breakfast of Japanese style crepes. They're not hard, but my family love them, and that is why I cook. To make them smile, help them grow healthy, and to teach them that with the right knowledge, and determination, you can do anything.

  25. Hi,

    I must admit I'm not really a whiz at baking (and hence the need for a Nigella cookbook to help along my cooking skills).

    I do like baking peanut butter cookies though, because they only have a few ingredients and even I can't mess them up!! : )

  38. I love cooking from Nigella Express (oh, the mustard pork chops with gnocchi... you really must try), and my love of baking came from my pastry chef dad, who still spoils us with home baked goodness. His 'secret' scone recipe has been passed (very secretively - there's a secret handshake) to many an eager friend. Love baking, full stop :)

    Pavlova - I had no idea it was so simple! So I've made about 6 of them in the past few months (and can't wait for the Summer fruit to be in season so I can stop using tinned....hardly the domestic goddess in this regard! LOL)

Mum gets to use her kitchen aid, the kids get to help by cutting them out of the dough and we all sit around smelling the gorgeous aromas while they cook. then we all gather around to decorate them - dad helps too!! - he comes home to eat them!! YUM - Jana Peatling & Family

    My favourite thing to bake at home are banana, honey and cinnamon muffins, because they're healthy and tasty and the perfect fix for when we have brown spotty bananas in the fruit bowl that nobody wants to eat!

  47. My favourite recipe to cook is chocolate brownies, Nigella's recipe actually. There is something about melting the chocolate and stirring it in that makes me feel so warm and cosy. Then there is eating the hot centre with a spoon when it comes out of the oven which bring back childhood memories. I like to cook with soul like Nigella!
