In the spirit of my domestic goddess week I wanted to share my admiration for the lovely Sophie Dahl. Years ago I remember laying in bed with my mother watching Nigella Lawson cook up the most decadent and delicious meals. While I found her food to be mesmerizing I still never felt inclined to go whip it up myself. Now that I am older things have changed and Sophie Dahl is my new Nigella Lawson. She has come under some criticism, but I disagree with the haters. I admire her career. Sophie was a model known for her voluptuous curves. She was unique and a relief from the skinny waifs of the 90s. I love her simple recipes and charming personality. Nigella will always be my favorite, but there is room in my heart for Sophie too.
Stay tuned for an awesome giveaway later today!
