Oh man, this is good. Where do you get your ideas?

I also work in a conservative environment and always struggle with white elephant at Christmas because they make it soooo boring with like 5 different blankets and candles etc. I've moved on from the safe gift of wine because if I'm gonna waste a whole evening I need something more entertaining. Last year I did the 50 Shades of Chicken cook book. It was hilarious until the poor lady that barely speaks English picked it and no one would trade with her. :(

So you need easy recipes and pretty good food? Betty crocker recipe book. Seriously it will help you learn to cook and give you tons to work with!

Betty Crocker Cookbook: 1500 Recipes for the Way You Cook Today

My mom had the 1970's version of this book. I started cooking easy stuff at age 5 (with mums help). I own the 1970 version and this version. I love the old version for the "cheesey 1950s" pictures and weirdness like how to dress a squirrel. (Yes seriously)

Provided you don't eat all the meat off the bones, you can turn it into stock, soup, and, my favorite, pre-made chicken pot-pie with the frozen veggies leftover in the freezer. This is also assuming you keep staples like flour, shortening and assorted spices in the house. Also helps if you save ALL the pie/loaf tins.

I'm not a fan of brats, but you can get some good mileage out of sausage. Toss it in pasta sauce with the grease for deliciousness that can be frozen and reheated later, toss in with rice, soup stock and beans for epic leftovers, simmer with milk and a little flour for sausage gravy (WHICH IS GOOD ON EVERYTHING). You can even bake it into bread and it's pretty damn tasty.

I make most every thing from scratch, so my idea of kitchen versatility (shortening, flour, kosher salt, milk, eggs, veggie oil, butter) isn't going to much align here.

I keep track of Amazon's free e-books! This one for preparing rotisserie chicken from the supermarket is free right now!

Try the basic Betty Crocker. Generations of us have learned from it.

Also, remember that your public library probably has several shelves of cookbooks you can browse through.

u/souldeux · 6 pointsr/swoleacceptance

Brother, you will think my answer in jest - but my words come from a place deeper than parallel in mine heart.

Purchase for thine self the cookbook "Fifty Shades of Chicken," for therein lie many easy and wonderful rituals by which birdflesh may be transmuted into gains.

With this and the Modern Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding, your swole will resist all attempts at control. Wheymen.

u/bigtcm · 5 pointsr/AskCulinary

> discipline the parsley with a knife and mix it with a salty, acidic mustard dressing that complements the bird.

Reminds me of passages from this book:

The recipes are mostly simple and straightforward. The introductory passages that precede each recipe are uh...not. This book is my go-to gag gift for anyone culinarily inclined. Here's a passage from the book, copy, pasted from that amazon page.

> The way his apron hangs from his hips already has me all wobbly. But as he coats my thighs with sticky liquid I can hardly contain myself. Is it the wine, or is my aroma starting to drive him crazy too? He heats me up fast, it won’t take much too?

> He heats me up fast, it won’t take much to finish me off now. His lips quirk up to a smile. My own juices are mixing with the coating and running all over the place. I get the strangest, sweetest, hedonistic feeling up and down. It’s epicureanism run wild!

> He spreads my thighs out on a plate. Sticky hands and at least five wet napkins. What will the housekeeper think? Who cares?

u/purplepunkin · 5 pointsr/funny

I got this one last year. It's great.

u/Mark_In_Iowa · 4 pointsr/therewasanattempt

The recipe was either from the one that comes with it (kinda doubt it) or from this book:

Fifty Shades of Chicken.

Apparently it's pretty funny, and a completely useable cookbook.

u/Fruzz92 · 3 pointsr/funny
u/MegaThrustEarthquake · 3 pointsr/todayilearned

Fifty Shades of Chicken is one of my favorite food novel/cookbooks.

u/Harb67 · 3 pointsr/instantpot

That one is what I used most to explore all the things you can do in an IP. Most of my current favorite recipes are things that I first tried from there but then adapted to my own taste. Lots of "safe bets", no duds (that I encountered - I didn't try every single thing)

u/unthinkableduck · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Everyone (especially me) should Do One Thing Every Day That Scares Them or if you prefer a more "traditional book", I can always use a 3 A.M. Epiphany. (I could use sleep too but that doesn't come in a book format.)

No e-books on my wishlist though. The ones I want usually wind up more expensive than the hard copy version!

Oh, If I were a book, I hope that I'd be a great one. (Or a sexy one. ;)

u/hemanhaterz · 2 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

I've found that gifting this to people I strongly dislike creates a good common ground that we are done and the person recieving it should lead a healthier life.

u/spelliamus · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

The worst Christmas I ever had was back in 2005. My husband was deployed to Iraq and he was really horny. I mean... really REALLY horny... all the time. Can you blame him? I did what I could but this was before the days of Skype or Facetime (or at least before it was common enough that we could use it while he was deployed).

So for Christmas I sent him a nice care package (can't remember what was in it - useful things, books probably), and he ordered a few things online for me and had them shipped to the house for me to open on Christmas day.

The day comes and instead of... hell I don't know what I was expecting but I certainly wasn't expecting what he sent. He probably gave me five or six presents, and every single one of them was a dildo or a vibrator or some other sex apparatus. He even sent me one of those suction cup dildos that you are supposed to stick to the ground or to some other surface and bounce on, and he sent me a strapon, although I knew he didn't want it used on him so I don't know what he wanted with that one...

It wouldn't have been so bad except that he didn't warn me about it at all, and so instead of opening my presents alone on Christmas morning, I had invited one of my friends over to open presents since she was also alone on the holiday. Imagine my fucking mortification...

Still to this day I call it Dildo Christmas, and he is amazed that I didn't just leave him. He never brings it up and always probably wishes that I wouldn't. But I do. Every year. Because if he ever does that to me again I will break his peen.

As far as my wish list... I don't have anything NSFW on there right now soooo... I guess it's time for me to go shopping. :p (Edit: Okay, I found something. Bahaha!

u/bljjlb · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon


So this is a short, but predictable story. Sexy time with my man. Things are going great. Wonderful. And then, I feel a burning in my bubble gum by the bum. It's okay, keep pushing. I got this.

I had to stop. I'm burning. Wtf man. Well, turns out he still had pepper oil on his hands from dinner earlier. Didn't even remember. I made him poor milk on my sausage wallet while I sobbed in the tub.

It's funny now that it's over, but use gloves people. For your hands and your flesh flute.

This may not even count, but I thought this was entertaining for my "NSFW" themed item: Fifty Shades of Chicken: A Parody in a Cookbook

u/BeerNTacos · 2 pointsr/LosAngeles

Some, but since a lot of them were in the same places, I may as well make the recommendations directly.

I recommend the work of Laura Pazzagila whole heartedly. Her site, videos and book (plus other social media) provides super useful information for all levels of experience with electronic pressure cooking. Highly recommended.

Lifehacker has a good deal of recipes and tips. I've recently tried the recent bread pudding recipe and am quite fond of it.

If you're looking for cookbooks proper, there's two that are the most popular: Laura Randolph's first Instatnt Pot book and Janet Zimmerman's book. I recommend the former for the newbie but both are pretty good. BTW, Zimmerman has a good dutch oven book I'd recommend as well.

u/fallingbrick · 2 pointsr/funny

It's not just a German book.

The first recipe is "Plain Vanilla Chicken" which I know because I got it for my mother for her birthday in 2012.

u/cheddarben · 2 pointsr/KindleFreebies

yeah.. it is not for everybody. Some people think it is cute and some people hate it. I never claimed it was a masterpiece and I encourage people to read the reviews and decide for themselves if they want it or not. That is what reviews are for, right? And if you order it and don't like it... I encourage people to work within Amazon to return it.

It is a self published quasi-gag gift that has some decent recipes. I really do enjoy cooking. If you want Fifty Shades of Chicken that was made by someone from the Food Network and published by a huge corporation... it will be more polished and I say go for it.

The price point of the hard copy is the lowest that Amazon allows and, personally, I am proud of producing this thing that has sold quite a few copies with 99 reviews that averages 3.5 stars.

Me? I totally have spent more on less for a funny gift that was less useful. And today, this thing is free.

EDIT: Link to Fifty Shades of Chicken

u/naturaldroid · 2 pointsr/recipes

I really like Cree LaFavour's Poulet. Her writing can be obnoxious, but the recipes are all pretty good and the instructions are clear. You can also try just searching Amazon for chicken/poultry cookbooks.

There's a cookbook for that. The Fresh Egg Cookbook. We got it for xmas and have been working through the recipes. They're really good! Some use more eggs than others. Our favorite is the hot and sour soup.

u/degroves · 1 pointr/funny

Seems to be a real press release - see the associated amazon book:

This is very, very funny though I would love a copy of that press release.

First of all, here is the "reddit cook book". I've made a couple out of here, and they're easy to follow and make.

My dad says one of my grandfather's favorite sayings was "If you can read, you can cook". While that's not entirely true since you need some coordination and stuff, the best way to learn to cook is to cook. Find some recipes online that have a minimal number of ingredients, and try making them. If they turn out shitty, use common sense to try to figure out what went wrong, or try another recipe. Epicurious and Allrecipes are good sites...I also highly recommend this book from food and wine. Almost all of those recipes are available online on their site, but having the book there and the ability to make notes in it is very nice. I've made just about every single recipe in there, and every one turned out tasty.

Once you get accustomed to techniques and flavours, you can start creating your own without too much of an issue as long as you stay reasonably simple. I wanted orange chicken, but didn't feel like looking up a recipe. I cut up chicken and cooked it in a pan till mostly done, then added various amounts of sweet chili sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, ground ginger, and two squeezed oranges, and then mixed some corn starch with water and added it to thicken it into a glaze. Tasted it and adjusted a bit till I liked it...bam. Done.

When you know what kinds of ingredients, spices, and herbs go in what kind of food, you can just play around with varying amounts and come up with something good. I'll often just saute up some onion and garlic, put in some fish or meat, toss in some rosemary, salt and pepper. Deglaze (that is when the meat is done, pour in a little wine and scrape off the brown tasty bits and make that sort of a sauce) and that's dinner over some pasta or quinoa or whatever.

So I rambled a bit, but...

tl;dr read, watch, and practice and you'll be able to make pretty much anything in no time.

u/theirproblemchild · 1 pointr/food

I definitely agree with everybody here who says to check out Youtube. The tutorials can be awesome! However, if you're new to cooking/baking, it can still be hard to know the terms and equipment they are using. Nothing beats a book for familiarizing yourself with these sorts of things. I recommend what I consider to be the Bible as far as learning to cook goes, "The Betty Crocker Cookbook". Assuming, of course, that you are American and will be using American measuring and temperatures.

You mentioned you want to learn how to make bread! I make my own exclusively, and I highly recommend doing that. Your own bread will be far healthier and filling than anything you'll buy in a grocery store or bakery, and you can add stuff to make it even tastier (my go-to is rosemary and sage). I only just learned to do it about a year ago, and was very intimidated by it because it seemed really complicated, would take hours and hours to do, might need special equipment (a bread maker) and I'd spend a lot of time and elbow grease kneading it. I was lucky enough to find, after a lot of searching, this video I'm posting below. This lady explains it really well and her method is super simple, turns out great every time. You can make sandwich loaves or rolls or whatever shape you want to make with it.

As you make this recipe over and over again, you'll be less intimidated by the whole bread thing and probably get into more complicated stuff. Check out r/breadit when this happens!

Good luck!

It's the "Faster Than Fast Food Fried Rice" recipe from this book. Not sure how it compares to other recipes out there.

People do eat male chickens. I got this cookbook for my brother-in-law for Christmas. He wasn't amused, but his husband sure was.

If you are looking for recipes that use ingredients others have mentioned Joy of Cooking or How to cook everything. Love them both. Joy is my go to for everything I need.

That said...

if you are looking for fast/easy you may be leaning on more packaged foods so that means canned soups, frozen/canned veggies, Stove Top Stuffing, etc. Chicken breasts tossed in a crock pot with a large jar of green or red salsa makes a great filler for tortillas/taco shells. Then just have whatever fillers you like. Very easy and fast. I have recipes that use canned soups, stove top, and the like. Again, easy and fast.

While some people think that it's heresy I think a mix of convenient cooking mixed with from scratch offers the best balance for the busy family.

As far as cookbooks I think Betty Crocker is pretty good at straddling that line.

u/Korrin · 1 pointr/videos

The last fact reminded me of this book.

u/GrayPenguin · 1 pointr/Cooking

Alton Brown is great. The Betty Crocker cookbook is great too. I also like the Fannie Farmer.

This is a repost of a post of a comment I made, but it should work great for you too. The key here is that this kind of meal is really hard to mess up.

Speaking of really hard to mess up, Crockpots. You don't even really have to "cook". Just get the ingredients, throw them in the pot for 4-8 hours, and you're done.

u/wolfgame · 1 pointr/funny

While not as awesome, it would appear that there's a sequel ... Fifty Shades of Chicken

u/Sam_Jam_Goose · 1 pointr/WTF

I did a whole report for a college essay on the process of making Foie Gras. There's a very good book about it too called The Foie Gras Wars: How a 5,000 Year Delicacy Inspired The World.It's actually a pretty interesting read if you're interested more about the industry.

u/heartshapedcheese · 1 pointr/stilltrying

I got this cookbook! The chicken dish I made last night was in it. It also has a great table of cook times for various things. I like it so far!
