All about Forever Nigella

Latest information about Forever Nigella is now shown at:



Forever Nigella in December 2012 is hosted by Laura at Laura Loves Cakes
This month’s theme is, surprise surprise, Christmas. Yes I know we’ve done Nigella Christmas twice before but it’s now traditional LOL.

Forever Nigella is the only regular blogging event to share your culinary moments dabbling with the domestic goddess.

After a couple of months with open entries we’re going back to having a monthly theme and there’s a great new line up of fabulous hosts!

Each event runs from the 1st to a named date near the end of the month with the current badge displayed here alongside a link to the latest announcement post.

Events will be announced on host’s blogs on the first of the month and round ups posted on their sites on the 1st of the next month.

The round up will link through to the new host so you can click through and see what the new theme is straight away.

Forthcoming hosts 2013

January – Sally at Recipe Junkie
February – Urvashi at The Botanical Baker
March – Jen at Blue Kitchen Bakes
April –  Elizabeth at  A Girl in Her Kitchen
May – Mimi at Chef Mimi
