"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.
