One of the things I’ve always liked about Nigella Lawson is the way she makes delicious food while just having fun with her family and friends. With Nigella Christmas (Hyperion, $35), Nigella takes the worrying and fretting out of the holiday season. She gives you the traditional recipes for preparing a great turkey dinner, but she also offers recipes for canapés and elegant desserts, and gives reassuring tips on preparing things ahead of time. The domestic goddess weighs in on everything from edible ornaments to the perfect vegetarian Christmas. Geared to help with the most stressful time of the year, Nigella Christmas may be the book you pull out when you’re planning celebrations throughout the year.
