Cooking is Terrible, the cookbook
I wrote a cookbook! Only it's sort of an un-cookbook--a cookbook for those of us who hate cooking, those of us who have limitations that mean we can't stand in the kitchen for ages, and those of us who are tired and hungry and would, honestly, just like to go have a nap. Probably a lot of other people, too, as it turns out that we all have to eat. It's available on Gumroad as a PDF and ePub, and as a Kindle file on Amazon.

This is so up my alley, it's not even funny. I'm looking forward to reading it!

The title of this cookbook is not terrible, it is great

Thank you for this. And the reviews are wonderful reading (Amazon). Apparently, I have found my people! Who knew there were others out there who don't give a damn about food?

For most of my 65 years in NYC, people have tried to shame me (fairly unsuccessfully, but still ...) for my lack of interest in eating/preparing food for myself and others. Since childhood I have longed for a nutritional pill, or astronaut food ... hamster pellets?

This cookbook has better ideas, is hilarious and bears no judgment.

Order placed. :)

Do you have any control over Amazon's "Look Inside!" choices? It'd be helpful if it had at least one recipe to look at.

Having a big bowl of watermelon and feta with a bit of basil for lunch, which was basically throwing three prepackaged ingredients together. Not a combination I would have thought of, and the pricing is not quite where I'd like it to be (I think the 12 oz pre-sliced watermelon in winter is the issue) but it was super easy and no doubt better than getting another bowl of fried stuff across the street for the 4th time this week. Tomorrow is a bowl of mozzarella and tomatoes with balsamic vinegar and olive oil, and yesterday was mangoes and avocados. All really tasty!

I'm excited to move into the advanced stage of stuff that requires cooking once I get a free weekend. This book is something I really needed right now - thanks mishafletch!!
