We've had a thing for British domestic goddess Nigella Lawson ever since seeing her UK cooking shows. She gleefully throws caloric restraint and fussy recipes to the wayside, tucking into luscious feasts with abandon and showing you how easy some of the so-called "complicated" formal recipes can be. Plus, we kind of have a girl crush on her - c'mon, how gorgeous is she? Her newest cookbook, Nigella Christmas ($23) positively brims with easy recipes for holiday indulgences like Boozy British Trifle, GirdleBuster Pie (we want to make that one for the name alone), roast goose or turkey, and canapés galore. There are even a heap of ideas for what to do with leftovers - should you have any.
