Hi there, I'm looking to find a recipe that Nigella features in one of her tv shows for biscuits. During the programme she showed us her amazing cookie cutter collection, then went on to make simple biscuits using an array of shapes which her children and their friends then decorated with coloured icing. I have my neice and nephew coming to stay for Easter and thought it would be a fun couple of hours one afternoon with them, and give me the chance to use my new "easter bunny" cutter?! I wonder if you'd be able to point me in the right direction for his great biscuit recipe?? Much appreciated Sue

Hi, I'll be attempting to make Nigella's Devils Food Cake and I have some questions: - Our only good quality dark chocolate available here in Dubai is either Marks and Spencer 72% Organic Dark Chocolate or Lindt 70% Dark Chocolate. All of them are in Bar form and not in Buttons or Chips. Can i use them in the Chocolate Frosting for the Devils Food Cake? What brand of Cocoa powder does Nigella usually use for cakes? Unfortunately, the only brand of cocoa powder available here is Hersheys and I was wondering if that's good enough. Thank you so much for answering these, Brandon.

I've made these oaten rolls (from p87 of KITCHEN) twice. The first time I cut the recipe in half and used agave syrup not honey since I didn't have any honey. They looked exactly like the picture but tasted strongly of baking soda, so I figured I made a mistake when halving the recipe...oops The second time, today, I made the recipe exactly as written. they looked nothing like the picture, or the first batch - they were wet, not shape-able and tasted only OK. Much less oat-y. What might I have done wrong this time?
