    Booty Food?

    Via Bookslut (hmm, seems appropriate) comes this mention of a cookbook called Booty Food. It was written by Jacqui Malouf, who has apparently hosted a cooking show called "Hot Off the Grill," and claims to offer recipes for food to take you through all stages of a burgeoning relationship, including the morning-after breakfast. Frankly, I don't think this is a cookbook I would ever use, and I say that based on a list of sample recipes. There is no way in hell I would ever cook a man something like "Lobster Eggs Benedict Poached in Champagne Butter," for instance - not even if he were Prince Charles.

    Why not, you ask? (I can hear you from here.) Well, I'll tell you: it isn't that I'm not willing to cook (I enjoy it), and I believe that feeding a man something he really likes to eat is one of the unsung pleasures of being female. It's that nurturing thing. But I think most men would really rather have scrambled eggs, toast, and coffee in the morning, and fifteen minutes alone with the sports page for dessert.

    Shall we put it to a vote? Who agrees and who disagrees?
