Hello, friends! Today I'm sharing my love of Mean Girls, a.k.a. one of the most quotable movies of all time! Did you know that a parody cookbook has been created? You read that right - The Burn Cookbook is now available! Jonathan Bennett (a.k.a. Aaron Samuels) and Nikki Martin (amazing chef) teamed up to make this very fetch cookbook real.
This cookbook is publishing with great timing. Did you know that October 3rd fell on a Wednesday this year? On October 3rd, a certain boy asked a certain cute girl what day it was... and on Wednesdays we wear pink. So Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018 was a very big day!
Anyway, let me share some of the cookbook's clever recipes with you. This cookbook is filled with creative cooking that includes a lot of great Mean Girls references and puns.
My favorite is "Get In, Loser, It's Desserts". Not just because I like the play on words, but also because I like desserts! Here's one - I'll share a peek of the recipe:
I loooooove cake. And rainbows. And smiles! This cake is pretty much perfect. And honestly not too challenging to make ! I'm not big on pink though. But the cake looks so yummy.
Here's another recipe - this one I found fascinating. Anybody here like beets? Okay, how about pizza? Anybody like beets ON pizza? This recipe, "Queen Beet-za", shows us that beets and pizza can go together. It's a weird concept, but also very cool. And very Mean-Girls-esque, given the color!
I am not a fan of beets but I kind of want to make that. But maybe not the whole pizza. Can someone make this and let me try a slice?
And if you thought Jonathan Bennett/Aaron Samuels was cute back then...
... he's even cuter now. This cookbook is loaded with pictures of him making yummy treats. Score!
If you're feeling personally victimized by my post, you can buy a copy of the Burn Cookbook today! Links are below. You go, Glenn Coco!
