About the Author

Prior to a career in editorial, he served as the lead publicist for hit TLC shows like Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, My Strange Addiction, and My Crazy Obsession.

He's also been struck by lightning--quite the shocking experience.


"You will definitely LOL while cooking and reading this one, which has recipes like Basic Bitch Lifeblood, a.k.a. the Pumpkin Spice Latte, 'I Could Eat This, Like, Every Day' Sushi Rolls, and Way Too Easy (If You Know What I Mean) One-Sheet Pan Dinners."--Cosmopolitan, 14 Cookbooks That'll Transform That Sad Bag of Groceries Into a Gourmet Meal
"In this humorously irreverent debut cookbook, Chowhound editor-at-large Skladany presents over 100 "tried-and-true recipes that are not only delicious but super easy to make." He opens with beverages--including a frosรฉ, made with rosรฉ and frozen strawberries, and a nonalcoholic pumpkin spice latte--and quick appetizers that can be prepared in 20 minutes or less, such as avocado toast and caprese salad with burrata cheese. Many of the entrees are healthy options, including sheet pan salmon with lemon-dill dressing and black bean-quinoa burgers, but there are also plenty of indulgent dishes as well, grilled cheese with cheesy fries and truffle macaroni and cheese among them. Desserts feature palatable fare such as chocolate chip cookies and strawberry macaroons, while a chapter on brunch offers classic dishes like chicken and waffles and quiche. Less experienced cooks will appreciate the tips that Skladany sprinkles throughout ("I opted for margarine... because it has a higher melting point than butter"), and may chuckle at some racy recipe introductions ("My grandma says if she's not dead by ninety, she'll become a heroin addict"; "Boys on Grindr looking for 'friends' are like me walking into a Chinese restaurant and looking for bok choy"). The recipes are straightforward and easy to follow, making this book a reliable resource for home cooks looking to build a repertoire." --Publishers Weekly
