Like many of us out there, I can boil pasta and scramble eggs, but roast a chicken? Nah. Enter Hot Mess Kitchen: Recipes For Your Delicious, Disastrous Life by Gabi Moskowitz and Miranda Berman (with a foreword by Mindy Kaling!). It’s a cookbook for those of us with no skills but who want to learn. Moskowitz and Berman pair culinary know-how with a dash of personal writing and a dollop of humor, resulting in recipes like “Trying To Make Ends Meet Tofu,” “My Ex Is Engaged Enchiladas,” and “A Pad (Thai) Of One’s Own,” plus drinks like “No Fucks Negroni.” Cheers to that!
