A riotous and all-wrong collection of real recipes from Heather Whaley- think Amy Sedaris meets a warped Martha Stewart
In this hilarious tongue-in-cheek collection, actress and playwright Heather Whaley reminds us that unlike fair weather friends and reliable sources of income, food will always be there for you- and for each of life's pitfalls she has provided the perfect recipe to cheer you up. Whether you've just been dumped, fired, found naked pictures of yourself online, or are forty-five and living with your parents, Eat Your Feelings will help fill any void.
With a dark comedic edge, this book collects the comfort foods necessary for any emotional rollercoaster: Sky-High Banana Cream Pie Because You're Dating a Married Guy, Lonely Christmas Pudding, Little Sister Earns More Than You Ham-and- Cheese Toastie, and many more. Illustrated with photos that add the perfect punch, this collection confounds life's little dramas with wit and brevity.
