The Break-Up Cookbook: Recipes For Singles Who Aren't Getting Any ...

The Break-up Cookbook

What you can do is share a laugh with friends over a slice of Knock 'em Dead Flourless Chocolate Cake then try to resist any urge you have to melt his prized Beatles vinyl into a pretzel bowl

Popular blogs like Perez Hilton and TMZ are awash with the latest news of celebrity breakups and make ups from stars like Kim Kardashian, Jessica Simpson, and Jennifer Anniston. These stories are popular because there are millions of "regular" people who have seen at least one of their romantic relationships crash and burn.

"Breakup stories from regular people are by far the most interesting," says "The Break-up Cookbook" author Nicole Porter, "It's horrifying and hilarious all at the same time. One woman dated a man for two years before he said, 'I'd love to marry you, but I'm afraid that after I did I'd find someone better and that wouldn't be fair to you.'"

Part comfort food cookbook, part breakup guide, "The Break-up Cookbook: Recipes for Singles Who Aren't Getting Any ... Anymore" is a pithy ode to every heart broken single who ever tried to cure a broken heart with a dish of ice cream or secretly plotted revenge. "There's nothing wrong with wanting to punch your douche bag ex in the face. Just don't do it." jokes Nicole Porter. "But what you can do is share a laugh with friends over a slice of Knock 'em Dead Flourless Chocolate Cake then try to resist any urge you have to melt his prized Beatles vinyl into pretzel bowl."
