Eat, Drink and be Merry

Some (or most, maybe) of you know that Steve H. of Hog on Ice (formerly Little Tiny Lies) has written a cookbook.

To health nuts and food nazis everywhere, it's the Satanic Bible of cookbooks.

OK, maybe that's a bit harsh.

OK, that's definitely too harsh. But accurate. And it got your attention, didn't it?

The book, of course, is Eat What You Want and Die Like a Man: The World's Unhealthiest Cookbook.

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wet your pants – this is one excellent read. Steve has been, from the very beginning of my blog awareness, one of the consistenly great daily reads on the 'net. I don't link to him nearly enough.

The book really will make you laugh, too - a lot, and out loud. The recipes are amazing, but the real point of the book is the humor, of which there is plenty. Not that the recipes are to be ignored. No, never that.

The book actually is evil, to a degree. Not once in my life had I ever bought lard – until today, that is. [When one has spent most of one's life overweight to one extent or another, one tends to avoid anything with the word "lard" printed on it in big red block letters.]

Buy the dang book!

Just buy it. Seriously. You'll regret it if you don't... especially if I come knocking on your door demanding proof that you have followed my instructions.

Thanks, Russ!

If it makes you feel any better, I bought lard today, too.

Okay, that's odd. I left comments on two posts and they never showed up.

so the comment was:

Yes, there seems to be an issue with comments in MT 3.0 if it's been installed as an upgrade AND you have MT-Blacklist previously installed.

It means I have to approve every new comment one by one.

Oh, bother.

OTOH, the MT forums are useful... I may have found the fix. We'll see.

I'll check it out, but I currently have a favorite cookbook. Well, not a cook book, a cooking book -- just this month I received "I'm Just Here for the Food." by Alton Brown (my culinary hero). If Steve's book is the Satanic Bible, Alton's is the anarchist's cookbook. He does the same thing in it he does on his show -- explains to you the basics, the techniques and science behind cooking -- the hows and whys of different cooking methonds, ingredients, etc. Very cool book.
