"A hilarious read when you're feelin' down and hungry." -Daily Candy
Life's little pitfalls can be a real drag: being dumped, fired, or left at the altar- they're all such downers. Sure, some might just grin and bear it, but why?
Hilarious author Heather Whaley advises readers to revel in their misery, offering a slew of side-splittingly skewed recipes-each perfect for a different, wretched moment, including:
• Lonely Christmas pudding
• Caught Mom and Dad in the Act Tater Tot Casserole
• Your brother Really Was Mom's favorite peach pie
• fannie Mae and freddie Mac 'N' Cheese
• breakfast Sandwich for Morning-After Regret
In the wonderfully perverse tradition of Amy Sedaris's bestselling I Like You, Eat Your Feelings makes the perfect gift, reminding us that food and booze-unlike fair weather friends or your 401K-will never let you down.
