I am pretty excited that Nigella Lawson will soon be on the Food Network. She used to be on the Style Network, her show was never on at a good time, hard to catch.
I have read her books, she is self -taught. I love her slightly messy way of doing things. She makes food that I would make, she is not pretentious, she makes the good stuff! My favorites are her Macaroni and Cheese, Dr. Pepper Ham and Trifle.
Nigella has a very interesting personal history, her husband died not too long ago and left her with two young children. I think she is beautiful too!
Her line of housewares is amazing too! A friend got me a set of her measuring spoons for my birthday a couple of years ago. Not only are the useful, but very nice to look at, great form and function.
