    As far as conversions from Youtube to print go, this is what I assume to be tops. The writing is on point with how his videos flow, but with a distinct lack of musical numbers and egg noir. Included are helpful diagrams (wangjangler included) to help the most inexperienced of wannabe chefs make sense of their tools. Some recipes are covered in the channel, but for the most part everything is new, and it is nice to have these things in a medium you can digest a bit slower.

    This was the only cookbook I've ever read cover-to-cover like a novel. And I laughed out loud so many times while reading my husband grew concerned. The mysterious You Suck At Cooking author managed to seamlessly blend his quirky humor and delicious food from his YouTube channel into paper form. As someone who loves to eat and loves to laugh, I can't recommend this cookbook highly enough. He's on to something, people. That something is delicious, ridiculously easy food.

    I read this from cover to cover like a novel, because I'm here for the humor (same reason why I watched his videos). But the recipes are quick and easy, great for beginners. If you like his videos, you'll enjoy the book - same humor, same flow. If you don't know anything about this, watch a couple of his youtube videos, that'll give you the "yes or no" answer you want for this book.

    This is the funniest cook book you will ever read - the recipes are kind of like bonus content honestly! Great illustrations, both drawn and photographed, and legitimately yummy looking food too.

    A fun cookbook with quick and easy recipes that still have their own unique twist. I made several of the sandwich recipes (it's summer, we're in quarantine, I'm making lunches for a husband working at home and a toddler every day, we eat a LOT of sandwiches ...), and they were all yummy and worth adding to my regular rotation. I look forward to trying more of the recipes. And bonus points for the recipes and other text in the book being, at times, laugh-out-loud funny.

    If Lemony Snicket wrote a cookbook, this would be it. As a huge fan of the YSAC channel, the humor carries over wonderfully into the written word, from jokes and sight gags to puns. And, as someone probably more experienced in the kitchen than his expected audience, I still found a lot of good-looking recipes and useful tips in this book. It also includes a full page of what temperature to cook different types of meat to! That's something I always forget, so I'm very excited to have those temps wr If Lemony Snicket wrote a cookbook, this would be it.

That's something I always forget, so I'm very excited to have those temps written down in a hard copy before I move out on my own and tackle grad school. Normally, I wouldn't count a cookbook as "reading" on Goodreads, but this one is worth your time. Before every recipe is a bite of hilarious commentary and each section begins with a very entertaining breakdown of the recipes.

    Well, this is absurd and hilarious and fun and a bit practical! I got this as a gift from a friend who is my co-pilot in an attempt to do monthly virtual dinner parties for faraway friends. The trick is needing to have recipes that are simple enough for all cooking levels, include ingredients that are edible by all and easily findable in different regions of the country, and recipes simple enough that we can handle after a long work week.

The trick is needing to have recipes that are simple enough for all cooking levels, include ingredients that are edible by all and easily findable in different regions of the country, and recipes simple enough that we can handle after a long work week. This book is apparently from a dude on Youtube who does these as episodes. If the book is anything to go by, it's a funny show. But, actually, there are a couple of recipes in this goofy book that could be helpful in becoming a better cook. These are recipes that fit the bill if you need some good food with simple recipes and ingredients explained in a way that you can actually understand. And, if all else fails, this cookbook includes "diet popsicles", which is just frozen tap water with popscicle sticks stuck in them. Bon appetit.

    This is a silly, fun book to read in little bits over several lunch hours. I didn't read all the jokes, but I appreciated some of them. There is almost nothing in here that I haven't heard of, or attempted myself before. However, recently I learned that I need to change my diet. It's time for me to leave noodles alone, and refresh my repertoire of vegetables. I took this book home from the library, and who knows; maybe I will try a leek.

    He sucked at writing. One decent recipe, and a lot of unpleasant filling.

    This Is the Stuff that Food Comedy Is Made of! How do I review a masterpiece by an unknown author who has a decidedly unique style and an ability to shock and awe with every breath? Is this chef a man of woman, or both, or none of the above? Every breath is potentially lost in that myriad gales of laughter, and I'm not sure I'm going to survive our first encounter. I was in a bad mood this morning, very bad. Bad, bad badbad. So I did what my husband hates most and opened my Kindle to "Books" to se This Is the Stuff that Food Comedy Is Made of! How do I review a masterpiece by an unknown author who has a decidedly unique style and an ability to shock and awe with every breath? Is this chef a man of woman, or both, or none of the above? Every breath is potentially lost in that myriad gales of laughter, and I'm not sure I'm going to survive our first encounter. I was in a bad mood this morning, very bad. Bad, bad badbad. So I did what my husband hates most and opened my Kindle to "Books" to see what's recommended for sale to me when I'm in a bad mood. Tucked in there, quite innocently and innocuously was this You Suck at Cooking, with no stated author. I HATE anonymity where someone refuses to take responsibility for the careful of careless mischief he is going to make. Hate it, but still curious. So I sampled. Hmmm. Well,guess what Chef Anon is hilarious in the nicest, most responsible way possible. He is giving fandango information,with fresh new concepts and words to entangle and engage us in the sheer FUN of cookery. Simple recipes from simply different ideas (who knew green eggs from pesto not spinach, way better and I don't have to grit my teeth offering it to my grandchild with hopeful crossed fingers). And, I've got a wangdangler or two and have never called them spatulas because I hate spitting into my skillet when I ask Frank for one. And I don't care who Chef is, he is welcome in our home/life/will because he somehow noisily sneaked into our kitchen and our hearts by reminding us that cookingwithlaughter just tastes better. That love is the most essential seasoning is the most essential part of any recipe and takes the toil out of the task (and the foil out of the flask; I don't know why, but I needed to say that! He/she made me say it, then giggle). It is so nice, so refreshing for cooking to be fun again,that I think I'll make some peanut butter cookies and be fifteen again. I think I'll be in good company with other newly devoted fans of Chef Anonymous. Come on! Give You Suck a try. You might find you don't suck at all, which is a good thing, because these days straws are in such short supply.

    Does this cookbook have the best recipes? Probably not, but it does have the sarcastic sense of humor that you need after smoking out your apartment from cooking salmon on the stove top. Or making a mess of a simple recipe and questioning how you've somehow managed to survive to almost 30 years old and yet still cannot cook a dinner flawlessly. And like, maybe you had some wine. Because wine is really just old grapes and it's okay because you're almost 30 even though the clerk still puts effort Does this cookbook have the best recipes?

Or making a mess of a simple recipe and questioning how you've somehow managed to survive to almost 30 years old and yet still cannot cook a dinner flawlessly. And like, maybe you had some wine. Because wine is really just old grapes and it's okay because you're almost 30 even though the clerk still puts effort into trying to figure out if your license is fake and you almost ask for the manager because it's not my fault that I don't have wrinkles yet, Karen! 😤 And really, I needed a clutch comeback to yell at a future boyfriend when our long term relationship inevitably fails. "Well those snacks were from the gas station anyway," is the perfect response to someone questioning your ability to commit and take life seriously. Because, obviously, I can't. Anyways, if you see the title of the book and are wondering, "Is this based on a YouTube channel or something?" You'd be wondering correctly. Go check out the saga of the eggs who get to say goodbye to each other and if you like the You Suck at Cooking videos, you'll love this cookbook. I do! Personally I love most of the videos, but the granola one is for sure a favorite. This book really echoes the videos and the effect is just laughing while wondering why there is so much avocado (I need to buy a house I can't be buying avocados). Do you read cookbooks front to back? I usually don't, but this one begs to be read like a book.

    The funniest cookbook ever. The notes and comments on each recipe are the best. If you hate cooking, this book is your spirit guide to laughing at yourself, while actually learning a little about cooking and removing some of the fear that the idea of cooking can create. The recipes are absolutely doable and most use very easy-to-find and reasonably affordable ingredients, in case you do decide to try your hand at cooking. Even if you don't plan on making any of the recipes, at least check this book The funniest cookbook ever. The notes and comments on each recipe are the best.

    This is easily the funniest cookbook I’ve ever read and one of the funniest books period I’ve read in a while. Not only is the voice sharp and clear and always filled with silly gags, the recipes themselves are largely very interesting and simple. If you’re intimidated by the kitchen this is a great place to start. I’ve been following this YouTube channel for years so to finally get to see this come out of it is extremely exciting. Definitely recommend.

    These are super basic recipes for simple things like scrambled eggs. The author thinks he's very funny, so every recipe is written in 2-4 times as many words as necessary so he can make a lot of jokes. A funny intro! Funny comments infused into 3 of the 5 steps! A funny outro!! And funny captions for the photos!!! I got tired of it really fast, and since the table of contents belies that there are no interesting or innovative recipes, I gave up even browsing 1/4 of the way through.

    Pictures of recipes? Not all are pictured. Commentary on recipes? Yes, and all the commentary tries to be funny. Nutrition facts? No. Recipe Style? Generally short and easy. Any keepers? A couple. The humor felt a little strained to me. And I feel the "Diet Ice Pops" recipe joke just fell flat. You had to dedicate two entire pages to it? On the other hand, I did appreciate the short ingredient lists and relative ease of the recipes.

    So this was going to be a gag holiday present, but I accidentally read it cover to cover. Very funny stuff. Unlike so many other cookbooks, the recipes here are actually achievable with the most basic cooking equipment. Simple, tasty recipes with a side of snarky jokes. A really good book for any new nervous cooks who could use a good dose of humor to get beyond noodles and canned soup.

    Truly inspirational. It teaches the readers that not only can you cook relatively easily but that there is a lot of creativity and fun wrapped into it. With quirky recipes and little backstories tied into them I can't help but read this cookbook like a novel whenever I get the chance. I highly recommend this book, one thousand times over.

    You suck at Cooking... allow this book to offer the basics in cooking and blow your mind with expressive recipes for simple dishes. Each entree or side is equipped with witty humor or sarcastic commentary about the food ingredients. Funniest book I've read EVER. LOL's on every page.

    I loved, loved this book. This is the only cookbook that I have read every word. The pictures are great and the recipes easy but wonderful. I haven't laughed so much reading a book ever! Vastly entertaining. I highly recommend it.

    This book has some great and easy recipes, for those of us who truly do suck at cooking. Some of the easiest and yummy recipes I have made, ever. Highly recommend it if you suck at cooking! Also pretty funny too.

    Funny and entertaining. Read the cookbook word for word and shared a few passages and recipes with friends. There were several recipes I would like to try and could easily modify to make them dairy free.

    I really enjoyed this cookbook. It’s filled with lots of wit and snarky comments but it has some really great recipes. And perhaps some funny ones too. I look forward to trying these out with my family.

    This is a totally fun cook book, with plenty of anti-food snob attitude, just the right amount of tongue in cheek. The author pokes fun at himself and anyone who takes cooking too seriously.
