A friend of mine recently gave me this book. I just HAVE to recommend it to all my Cakeb0t readers! Also, if your mother enjoys a good laugh, and would like a few new recipes, this might be a great gift to give on Mother’s Day!
I laughed out loud when I read this book. Amy Sedaris provides a hilarious guide on how to be a great hostess – domesticity at its finest! She provides real information, real recipes, and advice for situations you wouldn’t normally find in any book:
- How to kindly get rid of an unexpected guest
- Getting a guest to do some house work in exchange for dinner
- Party guest combinations to avoid: astrologer and astronomer
Although the book is funny, it is still a great go-to book! All of the home survival tips, and all of the recipes are REAL. And good! The book is seizure-inducingly colorful, filled with an array of entertaining illustrations and photos (cheeseburgers with faces!), comparable to the kitschiest of scrapbooks.
I absolutely LOVE this book. It is a cookbook, a survival guide, and great coffee table book/conversation piece. And the hardcover comes with a pinup poster of Amy! >_^
