But To be honest, I’m apprehensive about trying any of his recipes. He requires a show of his own to reveal how his “kitchen is hotter than bein up in the club” and goes down when he throws on his flamingo shirt. Many of the instructions are vague and hard to follow and I say this as a long-time amateur cook who can usually connect the dots in case of poor instructionsbecause most if not all of the given step was devoted to humor and innuendo rather than cooking clarity.

The recipes are pretty much not worth it 1 Goodreads star — any book that utilizes things like cans of cream of mushroom soup in the recipes usually aren’t — but the commentary by the “kitchen pimp” Coolio himself is pretty fantastic 5 Goodreads stars! As far as the actual recipes go, I’m disappointed to note that the book has almost no pictures and definitely no pictorial steps shown – all we get are a few glossy photos of some of the finished creations, stuck in the middle of the book.

You know you wanted to say that If you can get past the pimp jokes and forced slang this is a pretty decent cookbook with some smart tips and even some good jokes.

The recipes are simple and easy, but there are some that look really interesting. Having the right utensils is a good xoolio, but then you gotta show them who’s the boss up in this bitch. They seem to all be very tasty, but are made for home coo I’m not entirely sure how to rate this book. I was so excited to find this, and immediately bought it for my dad.

Jul 24, Louie rated it liked it. This is not that book. This cookbook is peppered with truly funny sayings and reads as if Coolio is right there alongside you whipping-up one of his dishes Paperbackpages.

This was a featured book at the library so obviously I snatched it up. They seem to all be very tasty, but are made for home cooks that haven’t really had a lot of experience in the kitchen. This is one of the most hilarious and awesome cook books I’ve ever read. You can’t have your spatulas and whisks runnin’ around like they own the place. Advanced cooks will be able to fill in the blanks, but the simplicity of these recipes will practically ensure that advanced cooks will already have encountered and tried much of everything here.

There are a few culinary gems that make it worthy of checking out. Sep 19, Sean rated it liked it Shelves: The introduction is cute and clever, if you like that sort of thing, and if you do, then this would make a good coffee table book, I suppose, but the same shtick over and over will probably get old after the first dozen recipes.
