Hello there. I would like to make a recipe originating from North America. However, I am having trouble with their measurements. I have bought some measuring cups from the UK, but will they be any good for a US recipe? Many Thanks!
I live in Nigeria. I bought Nigella's book How To Be A Domestic Goddess when I travelled to Finland for the Xmas holiday but now I am home and I have been trying to bake ever since then but can't get the correct measurements. l'm used to grams and not cups. Please can you help me with cup measurements in grams? Thanks.
Do you have a metric conversion chart from grams to ounces?

Dear Team Nigella, I started making the recipes from Nigella Express and I want to make the Red Prawn and Mango Curry (page 15). However, I really don't like the taste of coconut milk. Is there maybe a replacement you can suggest? Thanks!

Hi, I'm desperately looking for a scrumptious chocolate cheese cake recipe. One you do not have to bake but just chill in the fridge. Somehow baked cheese cakes just don't have the right taste or texture in my mouth. I once tasted one which was made with white chocolate but can't find a recipe for it. Hope you can help. Thanks!

I watched Nigella making pancakes on TV and have just made a batch using her Instant Pancake Mix. I used 150g of the mix and added the rest of the wet ingreadients from the recipe. However my mixture looked a little wetter and I was wondering if I should have let it stand a little before use? It didn't say to do this in the recipe. Chris x

I have a bag of eating apples and a bag of pears that aren't going to last much longer and I'm looking for a nice loaf-style cake recipe to make from them. Any ideas?

Hello! I have a problem baking bread and I was wondering if you could help me out. Whatever recipe I use I always encounter the same problem that the bread is very dense at the bottom of the bread. It looks and tastes almost doughy. I have tried longer baking times and higher temperatures, but than the bread gets very dark. Can you help me out, what I am doing wrong? Thanks. Rebecca

When making stock from the carcass and scraps from a cooked chicken, how safe is it to re-heat the stock afterwards? It is not always convenient to make the stock immediately after cooking the chicken, so the cold carcass is re-heated when making the stock, and then re-heated again when using the stock. Is this safe?
