Here is the finished steak. For the record, it smells terrific, and the cooking juices are absolutely delicious, thanks to the monster amounts of garlic and onion. The balsamic vinegar and beer cook into a pleasantly sweet broth mixed with the juices from the beef, and the seasoned salt adds an extra dimension of savoriness.

Not too shabby, Coolio! But not so fast; what about the beef? Instead of being fork-tender, the meat required a hacksaw to slice. It ends up being bone dry and quite difficult to chew. Considering this is more or less supposed to be pot roast, I think his meat choice should have been chuck or something, cooked at a lower temperature for a longer time.

Proceed with Coolio caution. Fuck it — onto the Hot Fruit Sandwich! The main ingredients are simple; all you need is strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and chopped apples. For most cooking purposes, frozen berries work quite well and tend to be cheaper than the fresh variety.

Coolio knows everything.

Coolio knows that I once threw away my underwear in a police station bathroom because I had sharted badly in them. This really happened. I did not know where to find peach-flavored syrup anyhow and this seems much more likely.

However, as you notice in this picture, in typical Dannis Ree fashion, I was not paying attention to the cans I was using, and ended up opening a can of cannellini beans by accident. That juice almost went into the dessert!!! All you need to do is simmer the fruit until it is soft, minutes. Coolio is like Martha Stewart. As you are already know, Martha Stewart is one of my favorite felons, and Coolio is up there too.

I bet seeing them speak to each other is like watching angels sing.

Cheap white bread soaks up a lot of olive oil, I found out. In fact, it absorbs a whole two tablespoons. Oh boy. The last step, before you assemble it, is to smash the bread as thinly as possible.

I mustered up a whole three pounds of force to squash these bad boys until they were flat. Nickel Bag [nik-uhl bag]: This is a half of a dime bag. By the way, these little bags are available at any good tobacco shop. Coagulate [koh-ag-yuh-leyt]: This is a term I use instead of the word combine.

It's just much more pimpish to let your flavors get together in a real intense way. Other chefs let their flavors combine, but when you and me get down in the kitchen, the flavors we make coagulate.

Shaka-Zulu [exactly how it looks, dumb-ass]: This is something I say when something is about to taste better than your momma's nipples. Confidence A kitchen pimp fears nothing.

Once you have achieved true pimpishness, you'll be making meals with your eyes closed and one hand tied behind your back. But in the meantime, you've got to be willing to fall flat on your face and dislocate your shoulder.

So pick your bleeding, injured body up off the floor and flip to a recipe in this here cookbook. You will succeed! You just have to be daring in what you make and how you present it. Your lady loves Moby Dick but you've never caught a fish on a rod and reel? Take a chance, make her some Tricked-Out Westside Tilapia and you'll be watching them panties come right off. Knocking over lampshades and shit.

What if all your friends are salad-eatin' bitches? Whip up my special Coolio Caprese Salad to please even the pickiest of vegetarians. As long as you do it with style and flavor, they'll all be shouting, "That tastes better than your momma's titties! I didn't become a rap superstar by sleeping eight hours a night. I still can't get myself to try the Hot Fruit Sandwich, though. Feb 18, Renata rated it really liked it Shelves: This was a featured book at the library so obviously I snatched it up.

Most of the recipes in this are meat-laden, and the few vegetarian recipes are pretty weaksauce veggie stir fry, chili.

But whatever, this is the funniest cookbook I've ever read. All cookbooks should measure their spices in dime bags and nickel bags, amiright? So, not really a kitchen staple for me, but definitely worth getting from the library.

And I could see it being a useful cookbook for an omnivorous beginning cook. Mar 07, Kiki rated it it was ok. I knew upon seeing Coolio in an argyle vest that he was serious.

I read the recipes and imagined Coolio in the kitchen cooking, probably wearing hat with a hole cut up top to expose a few braids. He requires a show of his own to reveal how his "kitchen is hotter than bein up in the club" and goes down when he throws on his flamingo shirt. But To be honest, I'm apprehensive about trying any of his recipes. Jan 23, Heather rated it really liked it Shelves: I read this cover to cover and enjoyed it way more that I should have. Most of my enjoyment was based on the humor, but there are some solid looking recipes also.

The recipes are simple and easy, but there are some that look really interesting.

I haven't made anything from it yet, but I have several earmarked to make soon. Jul 24, Louie rated it liked it. Found this in the new release shelf on my local library and it's a hoot! I've always respected Coolio for his talent and smarts. This cookbook is peppered with truly funny sayings and reads as if Coolio is right there alongside you whipping-up one of his dishes I wouldn't necessarily recommend downloading it but looking it over at your library.

Dec 25, Ariel rated it it was amazing Shelves: I was so excited to find this, and immediately bought it for my dad. Coolio's commentary is priceless. I think a full half of the recipes begin with anecdotes about how the specific recipe has somehow gotten him laid, which bolsters his credibility as a kitchen pimp.

This is not a book to download for the recipes. It is a book you download to double-over laughing. May 26, Rebecca rated it liked it Shelves: OK, I didn't try any recipes, but I they seem to be simple, cheap, and good.

However, you'll really appreciate this book for its sometimes raunchy humor.

Sep 19, Jordan rated it really liked it. Shaka Zulu!
