Joey Skladany is hilarious, and his cookbook, Basic Bitchen: 100+ Everyday Recipes―from Nacho Average Nachos to Gossip-Worthy Sunday Pancakes―for the Basic Bitch in Your Life is also hilarious. That is not to say he doesn’t know how to cook; rather he obviously is a great cook, and the recipes in this fun cookbook are for dishes that most of us want to cook.
The whole purpose behind a good cookbook is to have something to cook, so what’s important is that recipes are easy-to-follow, that recipes are appealing to most cooks, and that recipes have enough photographs to entice cooks to prepare the recipes. This fun book includes all three aspects. Skladany has used his humorous imagination to name his recipes, which also adds to the fun.
Of course preparing some of the recipes is a “must do” for a reviewer, and so I tried some of the recipes to make sure they turn out well. I must admit it was difficult to decide which recipes to prepare from this cookbook, but the Nacho your Average Nachos caught my eye; they were fabulous. There are also several sheet pan dinners that are very easy and very good; Sheet Pan Pork Tenderloin with its yummy glaze has become a favorite, and we all loved the sauce for the Salmon Sheet Pan Dinner. A Not Disappointing Quiche is also delicious.
If you want to cook great dishes and also be entertained, this is a cookbook to pick up. The dishes are mouthwatering (and mostly easy), and the vignettes and notes are fun to read.
