Welcome to Laugh Link day! For some reason, cookbooks and recipe books popped into my head on the weekend. Now, I don’t cook using a recipe, I just…cook. So I wondered, what would happen if I suddenly got a book contract? Here are the recipe books I could write.
The Anti-Recipe Book: Just Fucking Fry It
Sausages – Bunnings Doesn’t Do It Better
Tuna – Not Just For Students
Roast Dinner – “Set & Forget” Meals
The Real Steps To Packet Mix Baking
Also, because the entire thing bugs me:
The Quick Guide To Plating:
- Is it on a plate?
- If yes, eat.
- If no, put it on a plate, then eat it
What recipe book could you write?

You are SO right on here sista. I used to just food blog, and it’s a great genre, but the pressure to be perfect that I felt was bordering on hysteria. I do think that cooking shows have been positive than negative – but the plating wankery – aaaagh, the painting and smearing of food! Just leave it together and bung it on the plate!!!
I love trying new food and going to foodie shows but I don’t like the excessive styling and all that “stuff” that comes with it. I must admit I don’t watch cooking shows because just the ads alone bug me – so I’m completely out of touch on the latest famous chef…
“The Quick Guide to Plating” = ROTFL. Might not be a long book though… 😉
Let me see what I could write:
– 2 minute packet rice: a girl’s best friend
– Interesting ways with Noodles
– Pantry Scrounger: how to avoid going to the shops
– Cooking for the world’s fussiest man: a cheat’s guide!
Those are gold!! The last two are ones you could sell easily.
Cook books I should write:
2 minute noodles can be gourmet! (Lowering of standards possibly required!)
The three ingredient Vegemite sandwich (includes variations)
Meals that don’t require attention
Thermomix- Thank God for You
20 ways with tinned tomatoes!
What to do with weet-bix
Eggs for any meal
Love it. If I used cookbooks I’d use those 4 ingredient ones as I’m super lazy. Well, plus I cook the same things all of the time. Steak and potato, chicken and rice, steak (stir fry and rice), chicken and potato.
I did Weight Watchers earlier in the year and was a bit adventurous but… meh.
Too funny. Mine would be along the lines, this might not be worth photographing but it still tastes alright.
I’d be up for those books – love the fry it one! My recipe book.
Move over five second rule, hello one hour rule!
