With some authors, you don't need to look past the front cover. Any new book from that person goes right into the pre-order queue. Nigella's cookbooks have been in that category for me for... eek, a decade already?! because they're reliably tasty, non-obvious recipes that are simple enough for midweek cooking -- and her writing is a pleasure to read. Her latest, Simply Nigella, gives me no reason to revise my opinion.Some of Nigella's cookbooks have themes, such as holiday cooking or Italian-inspired. Simply Nigella likely could be summarized as "comfort food," in the sense of "dishes that help you slow down, unwind, restore-oneself, and appreciate life a little more." Her own life, for the past couple of years, certainly has demonstrated a need for this... and among the many things I admire about the woman is her ability to impart that Finding-Comfort to others. (So hey, thanks lady.)But you could ignore all that and just get down to the recipes.I've made a few things so far, and have little stickies marking quite a few more dishes. I began with a solo supper of "feta and avocado salad with red onions, pomegranate, and [I left these out because they hid on my spice shelf:] nigella seeds," which was tasty -- not OMG YOU MUST EAT THIS but only a few minutes to throw together. I also made her super-easy "chicken traybake with bitter orange and fennel." You throw the chicken into an easy marinade, then dump it in a pan in the oven while you work on something more important (say, Facebook status updates). It was yummy and gave me a few days of leftovers (though next time I'll chunk the fennel into smaller pieces).The OH WOW dinner so far, however, was her Indian-spiced Shepherd's pie.
