What is the correct substitution for the self-rising flour called for in Nigella's baking recipes? Are both baking powder and salt added to regular all-purpose flour or just the baking powder? Is baking soda added as well? What should I use as a recipe, to substitute for all-purpose flour?

Can I just say how much I love Nigella and her TV shows/books. She is truly an inspiration! And even though I'm British, I'm living in Japan, so if she ever comes to Japan, I can recommend some great restaurants! Anyway, I am planning to make the Jumbo Chilli Sauce but unfortunately can't buy jars of roasted peppers in Japan. So, should I roast my own, or are raw peppers okay? I've never roasted peppers before, so a little uncertain of the process. Thank you in advance!! Craig

I would love to have a list of non-perishable foods to always have at hand in the kitchen. There've been so many times that I just couldn't figure out what to do for dinner and couldn't make anything out of what I had! What are some key foods to always have at hand in my pantry that are versatile to make many different meals? For those times where I say, "I have no idea what to make for dinner. Oh, I have this, this, this, this and this in my pantry! I can throw all that together and voila! A last minute meal!" Thank you so much!
