Can I use the vodka marinade from Nigella's Vodka Marinated Steak for other cuts of meat, eg. lamb, chicken, pork? Thank you Lisa.

I would like to make an orange and coconut cake and was thinking about using Nigella's basic Victoria Sandwich recipe and adding the flavourings to it. The trouble is I don't know how much orange zest and coconut to use. What would you suggest? I would be most grateful if you could help. Thank you.

I live in Australia and sometimes there are certain ingredients that are simply not available. One of them is dry packed black olives - what can be substituted for these in this recipe please?

This recipe from Nigellissima for Spinach Baked With Ricotta And Nutmeg is for two servings. Would it work for 18 servings? If so, how would you adjust the quantities and what size dish (or dishes) would you bake it in? What worries me is that in a larger quantity it will not set in the middle. Thank you.

I am having a large group of 16 for Thanksgiving dinner. Turkeys available here generally are about 14 pounds. My oven isn't large enough to roast two turkeys at once. Can I roast them the day before, cut into pieces i.e; drumsticks, thighs, wings, breasts and heat them up on the day? if so, are there any special tips you can give?

Hi Team Nigella! My kids' friends are meeting at my house before going trick or treating. Do you have any quick snack ideas that I could serve to them before they venture out?

I'm interested in making the divine-sounding Liquorice Pudding but it's difficult to find those black liquorice pellets and they're a little expensive online. I was wondering if I can use any other form of black liquorice - like boot laces cut up into small pieces - will this be the same?
