For people not in the UK: Delia Smith is a celebrity cook. My friend sent me this - hope you all get a chuckle out of it.

Delia's Top Tips:
Delia's Way : Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent
ice cream drips.
The Real Woman's Way : Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for God's sake. You are probably lying on the couch with your feet up eating it anyway.

Delia's Way : To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the
potatoes.
The Real Woman's Way : Buy Smash and keep it in the cupboard for up to a year.

Delia's Way : When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking tin, use a bit of the
dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the cake.
The Real Woman's Way : Tesco sells cakes. They even do decorated versions.

Delia's Way : If you accidentally over-salt a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a potato slice.
The Real Woman's Way : If you over salt a dish while you are cooking, that's tough luck. Please recite with me the Real Woman's motto: "I made it and you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes.

Delia's Way : Wrap celery in aluminium foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.
The Real Woman's Way : It could keep forever. Who eats it?

Delia's Way : Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.
The Real Woman's Way : Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and drop it in 8
ounces of vodka. Drink the vodka. You might still have the headache, but you won’t give a damn!

Delia's Way : If you have a problem opening jars, try using latex dishwashing gloves. They give a non-slip grip that makes opening jars easy.
The Real Woman's Way : Why do I have a man?

and finally the most important tip :

Delia's Way : Freeze leftover wine into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.
The Real Woman's Way : Leftover wine???? Hello!!!!!

Those are so funny! We had something very similar circulating around here in the U.S., except the person doing all the "Miss Perfect" recommendations was Martha Stewart!

Too funny! Thanks Cesce - I think this is probably why I prefer Nigella these days, more down to earth and realistic!

Mermaidgirl, funny you should say that: I got an email today from another friend titled "Martha or Maxine" which I think is the American version. The same but a bit different.
