Shelves full of cook books. That’s me. I love to drool over the full-page, full-color pictures. I fantasize how my plates would look the same way. Of course they never do. Mainly because I never cook anything from my cookbooks. I just sit there on my sofa, tea and chocolate within reach dreaming of my kitchen princess status.

Nigella Lawson’s “How to be a domestic goddess” is definitely one of my favorite books, not just cook books. The funny thing is that this book was translated in Dutch as “How to be a divine house wife” – that’s something completely altoghether, but that is a topic for another blog.
