I’ll never forget the e-mail. I was asked if I’d like a copy of the The Fart Without Fear Cookbook to review on Get Cooking.
My reaction, “Why wouldn’t I want a copy of the The Fart Without Fear Cookbook to review on Get Cooking.”
After all, if you’ll look at the top of the banner at the top of the page, it identifies Get Cooking as a food blog with a southern accent and a refusal to take anything too seriously. That’s simply because the creator of the banner – the chocoholic, over-caffeinated, food loving human behind these very words – can be described the same way. I speak with a southern accent and couldn’t take life too seriously if you paid me. In chocolate covered coffee beans.
Oh, sure, I’d lie and promise to be more serious – just long enough to get the chocolate goodness – but as soon as your back was turned, I’d be acting like a fool again. A fool with chocolate! Do you even know how dangerous that is?
The cookbook is even cooler than I thought it’d be. I expected to laugh a few times and that would be it. I didn’t expect there to be such great recipes inside. Sure, there are laughs (I’d be disappointed if there weren’t), but there’s real substance as well.
In addition to delicious recipes (recipes that are delicious to the mouth yet gentle to the stomach), here’s what you can expect from Fart Without Fear:
- You’ll learn which ingredients will produce the bad aftermaths.
- You’ll learn how to rate, prepare, and change the good or bad level of any comfort food recipe or other favorite cuisine of choice.
- A lot of laughs.
- You’ll arm yourself with tons of fun information to amuse (and educate) your friends and family.
