Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the cover of Essence to the stage at the Apollo, from reruns of her hit show The Parkers to her reality program Mo'Nique's F.A.T. Chance, Mo'Nique exults in the joys of being a large woman. Here, she explores the great love of her life — food. But this isn't food South Beach diet style. This is food with flavor, from chocolate and cream to sugar and butter and everything in between.

I n Skinny Cooks Can't Be Trusted, Mo'Nique's fondest food memories (like her mama's stuffed fish that blew up in the oven but made it to the table anyway) are accompanied by cooking tips (when in doubt, taste it to make sure), food strategies (gather everything in one place so you don't tire yourself out runnin' around the kitchen), and "what to wear if you're gonna go there" (because if done right, good food can lead to good lovin'!).

Review:

"[W]ith her trademark sassy, no-holds-barred style, [Mo'Nique] presents recipes for the rich, down-home food she loves." Library Journal

Synopsis:

Celebrity comedienne and bestselling author Mo'Nique serves up a feisty and funny collection of memories, accompanied by her favorite, mouthwatering recipes (none of which are low-fat!). Full color.
