"Goddess Goodies"


"The trouble with much modern cooking is not that the food it produces is not good, but that the mood it induces in the cook is one of skin-of-the-teeth efficiency, all briskness and little pleasure. Sometimes that's the best we can manage, but to others we want to feel not like a postmodern, post feminist, overstretched modern woman but, rather, a domestic goddess, trailing nutmeggy fumes of baking pie in our languorous wake. So what I'm talking about is not being a domestic goddess, exactly, but feeling like one." --Nigella Lawson


As we are fast approaching peak holiday time, most of us are busy, stressed, perhaps a bit more harried than normal. What better time feel like goddesses, domestic or otherwise, to channel our inner Nigellas and enjoy some Goddess Goodies, our theme for this week.


Nigella says "Cooking is about balance and harmony" and Goddess Goodies are those foods that make us feel good--the treats that delight and sustain us.


For some it may be something sweet, for others something savory or earthy...maybe something light and ethereal, or perhaps something thick and creamy...something decadent...or something healthy. Only you know what your inner goddess desires!


So look through your cookbooks or browse online for the perfect Nigella Lawson recipe that captures the spirit of your inner goddess. Post your Goddess Goodies creation on your blog through Sunday, December 6th. If you didn't get a chance to yet, stop by and take a look at last week's amazing and delicious Side Dish Superstars!

Please leave a comment after, each week that you use Mr. Linky to link your post, just to be sure we don't miss anyone. Not sure what a permalink is?
