Glorious carbs are not the hero any of us want on a Saturday morning—it’s the hero we need. Delete your deliver apps and start cooking your own hangover food.
Here you’ll find fifty restorative recipes for loaded fries, bacon burgers, luscious ramen, spicy tacos, mini pizzas and buffalo wings. Because, just like death and taxes, hangovers are simply one of life’s certainties. Infinite hangover “cures” exist, including raw egg, sports drinks and even rubbing lemon in your armpits. Some heretics suggest simply avoiding alcohol altogether. There is only one known relief from a chronic hangover: food.
This beautifully photographed cookbook showcases the very guiltiest of pleasures. A decadent mac and cheese might not make your headache disappear (that’s why Tylenol was invented), but it will certainly aide a tender state of mind and empower you to face the outside world. But who even needs the outside world when you can just make your own bacon hash? Or jalapeno poppers? Or chorizo tacos?
Or maybe you’re someone who prefers to keep it classy when hungover (as atonement for the prior night’s sin, no doubt). In which case there’s hasslefree recipes for potato and rosemary pizza, fettuccini carbonara, and pizza-stuffed roast potatoes (pure class). Then for the sweet-of-tooth: salted chocolate brownies and cream-cheese stuffed honey cookies.
The best thing about all recipes from this cookbook is that, because they’re administered for medicinal purposes, the calories really don’t matter. Right?
