It is no secret that I like to cook. Bake. Eat. Generally any activity involving food.
So, naturally, I am a HUGE fan of the Food Network. I can watch it for hours on end. Sometimes, after a long day of watching the Food Network, my mind becomes hazy, reality distorts, and it is easy to believe that the relationships I've kindled with these chefs has become real. I AM grilling with Bobby Flay. I HAVE spent 30 Minutes with Rachael Ray. Aida and I have found 5 more ingredients to throw together for a splediforious feast.
Don't judge me.
My new Food Network chef to admire is Nigella Lawson. Here are several reasons why I like her:
She is cool.
Her kitchen is spunky.
She makes AWESOME food.
She lives in England.
She has an accent.
There are plenty more reasons where that came from. If you don't believe me, just watch her shows.
When the folks over at her publisher, Hyperion, contacted me about reviewing her newest book, Nigella Christmas: Food Family Friends Festivities, I said I'd think about it.
I jumped on the chance to check out her book in all it's awesomeness! The review will be coming up in a few days. In the meantime, I figured it was about time to GIVE ONE BOOK AWAY.
