Dirty Sugar Cookies: Culinary Observations, Questionable Taste

Dirty Sugar Cookies: Culinary Observations, Questionable Taste Reviews

  • Elizabeth
    Hee-larius. I might have even given it five stars except that I'm annoyed I didn't write it. I, too, grew up in the midwest, got dumped by friends when they got popular, had a mother who made fancy with Mastering the Art of French Cooking, ate college post-coital breakfasts in greasy diners, lived i...

    This is the story of the culinary awakening of a picky eater. I spent a lot of time going, "I AM (WAS) EXACTLY LIKE THAT!" I am also a former picky eater. Like Halliday, I cook for a kid with peculiar food preferences, albeit not as limited as Inky. I, too, spent time in college dabbling in hippie f...

    This book got off to kind of a slow start but by the end I was totally into it. Ayun is a really, really funny writer, and goes to show that David Sedaris is selling in the hundreds of jillions and she's pretty unknown. That said, I prefer her hilarious travel memoir No Touch Monkey to this book. Al...

    Not what I wanted this to be. While it's a collection of essays on the theme of culinary awakening, it's more about the "awakening" than the "culinary." I wanted food porn. What I got was a mash note.The essays are a little scattershot, running from the few things she'd eat as a picky child to the b...
  • Nancy
    When I first started reading this I didn't think I'd pick it up again after I got off the plane. I did end up finishing it but only found it mildly amusing. ...
  • Molly
    I thought this would be lot of fun to read but it was just silly. The author tried too hard to be amusing and it hurt the content. Most of her stories were "cute" but I didn't really feel they were worth a whole book. Disappointing....
