  1. I bought the Nigella Christmas book for my mum (silly excuse so that I could add it to my bookshelf) but I love her recipes and pictures! And I LOVE her pure passion for food. It just always warms my soul + makes my taste-buds tickle for delicious bites (especially whenever I watch her episodes on TV). Do you like Harry Potter too?

    • I love Princess Diaries. I re-read them recently.

      Nigella works her magic, whether on TV or through books. I have her entire series on my bookshelf! I almost embarrassed to say I’m not that fond of Harry Potter, but I did try!

  2. Oh no! 😦 That’s okay. To each, her own, I guess! I’m one of those Potterheads. Hehe! About Nigella, you’re perfectly right. There’s a movie you might like (or have watched already): Julie & Julia. Meryl Streep is so darling in it! 🙂

    • I’ve seen Julie & Julia! Meryl Streep is darling in everything! I’ve in fact read the book, both Julie & Julia and another book by the same author, a sequel of sorts. Have you been watching Nigellisima?

  3. In fact, I just watched my first episode of Nigellisima today! OOOH, I haven’t read the book, Julie & Julia. Must buy it or get hold of a copy. There’s this other smaller book by an Indian author, I don’t know if very many people liked it but I did enjoy reading it: The F-Word by Mita Kapur.
