Sometimes I'll pick a book up just for it's title or it's cover. If it's a cookbook we're talking about with the promise of gratuitous puns, well, I'm pretty sold.
The book delivers on promised tone and puns both, fun, snarky, and well explained. The recipes veer into the unexpected, with the inclusion of various snack foods such as Doritos and Hot Cheetos as part of the flavor, texture, or highlight of sweet treats. But even if you're conservative when it comes to flavor combinations, there's plenty for you here, and a number of recipes you can make a more traditional version of by simply sidestepping the inclusion of the salty munchie in question.
A fun addition to your cookbook collection, and if you're in a library one I think that will definitely circulate on amusement value alone.

Recently, I saw a thing about breakfasts around the world, titled, "US Really Does Eat Dessert for Breakfast." When I read the article all the way through, I thought that this is definitely true. I want to try and give my kids better. I know that having something more substantial (and less sugary) is better and helps them get through the day. So anytime I get a chance, I look at the recipe books I have been accumulating and marking recipes that I know that my family would eat (picky eaters) and enjoy. There were quite a few recipes that I have marked for making for my family. It is worth the money asked.
A wonderful cookbook, chock-full of easy to prepare dishes. Loaded with beautiful photographs.
Personally, having just recently returned from Italy, I was thrilled with the "Pasta Cacio e Pepe" (pasta, cheese and pepper), and the "Pizza Bianca". Upon making them both, my wife and I felt like we were back in Lombardy! A big fan of Asian food, I was happy with the simplicity and deliciousness of the "Spicy Peanut Noodles". And, being confronted with a barrage of fresh tomatoes from our garden, the tomato recipes will be very fun to experiment with.
This is a fun, unpretentious cookbook. Perfect for anyone who just wants to prepare simple, fresh, and delicious food!
