I love a bit of nigella! I love how she writes, her enthusiasm about food and lovely ingredients, and how easy, quick and yummy most of her recipes are! I was reading Kitchen this morning and made Korean Keema for lunch, bloody delicious, perfect for fighting off this horrid cold! What's everyone's favourite nigella recipes, I need suggestions of more fab things to cook!

Andy Fairfield Granola - my whole family loves it.
For the applesauce I just use baby purée apple & pear. It is lovely!

Need to think of others.

Oh god I love Nigella! I regularly make some of her (easier) one pot type of recipes.
My favourites are:
Chicken cacciatore. This is easy, cheap, delicious one pot comfort food.
Chicken with sage, lemon & onion. I made this at the weekend. We have this with potatoes and some green veg.
Keralan fish curry. This is a lovely summer recipe.
Marmite spaghetti! A ridiculously easy pasta dish for when there's nothing else in the house.
Tuna and beans. Easy, cold antipasti dish.
And her rocky road. Bloody lovely!

I'm loving her rice bowl recipe from her my most recent book. So simple and really tasty. Took me a while to find short grain rice though! Eventually did in Waitrose.

Oh and her sweet potato macaroni cheese from same book. Fabulous. A tasty way to hide a vegetable from DS!

Caramel croissant bread and butter pudding. I make mine with almond croissants though and add almond essence to the custard bit. I bloody love an almond croissant, this threads has made me hungry!

My favourites are:
Homemade tagliatelle and mini meatball ragu
Her chocolate lime cheesecake
Her baked cheesecake
Shredded lamb with pomegranate
Lemon mushroom and herb pasta sauce
'Sluts Pasta' recipe
Croissant bread and butter pudding
Chilli Jam
Bar nuts (never met anyone who doesn't like these!)

Oh there are literally a million recipes of hers I love grin

Oooh 2 votes for marmite spaghetti! I always look at it and wonder, but haven't had the guts yet... i think That's the toddler's tea sorted!

CrazyCatLaydee123 Tue 18-Apr-17 16:26:27

Guinness cake!

canihaveacoffeeplease Tue 18-Apr-17 16:28:30

Oh the Nutella cheesecake is a massive favourite in this house too!!

Oh and I think maybe it's in feast, it's chicken thighs and sausages you bake together marinaded in sage and mustard, so good....

And her absolute love of a roast chicken in one of many scrumpy ways...was it nigella that suggested stuffing it with Boursin? I think maybe. That is soooooo delicious.

Thanks for all the suggestions, we're going to have a nigella week!

Yes! I made the chicken thighs with sage & mustard this weekend. SO. GOOD.

Hope you enjoy the marmite spaghetti.

Macaroni Cheese (Christmas recipe book)
Chocolate Guinness Cake
Cappuccino Cupcakes (Goddess book)
Red Thai Prawn Curry with butternut squash and sweet potato (Express book I think)
Roquamole Dip

Chocolate loaf cake, can only make it occasionally as I would easily polish the whole thing off myself.
Chocolate peanut butter cheesecake - ditto
Prawn and mango curry.
The peanut sesame noodles.
Chicken and chorizo traybake.
Don't know if it's her patented method, but the trick of semolina on potatoes before roasting them.
Baileys tiramisu
Bit random but we also make her Poinsetta (sp?) drink at parties and it always goes down really well.

Chocolate Guinness cake - best cake ever.

Her veggie chilli isn't bad.

Watermelon and feta salad.

PurpleDaisies Wed 19-Apr-17 18:21:02

I've made almost all the cakes in the chocolate cake hall of fame in feast. Fantastic, the lot of them. Particularly the icing on the chocolate Guinness cake which is the only cream cheese icing I ever make any more.

Her chocolate key lime pie is amazing (I made it yesterday).

Christmas red cabbage made with half the sugar.

I find her writing really annoying but I love the recipes

Chocolate orange no flour cake. Made dozens of times.

Oblomov17 Wed 19-Apr-17 18:28:52

Ham in coke

Her clementine cake - utterly gorgeous.

Ok - best Nigella book? I've only got Domestic Goddess. Weirdly as I have a massive recipe book library. What should I invest in next?

IHaveBrilloHair Thu 20-Apr-17 13:12:15

I'd say Kitchen, purely for the variety, it's huge, Feast is gorgeous to read though.

Deploycharitygoats Thu 20-Apr-17 13:14:43

Beef braised in beer, the one with prunes and carrots from How to Eat. Good god, it's delicious.

Bringmesunshite Thu 20-Apr-17 13:19:29

Korean Keema , just like you, op.

blamethecat Thu 20-Apr-17 13:22:34

Chocolate fudge cake in Bites (I think)
Meatballs from the same book.
The chocolate loaf cake form goddess (with mascapone smeared on slices of it)
Her Yorkshire pudding recipe has yet to fail me.
Ham in coke or slow baked ham and treacle.
