Beyond the insanity of feeding your family, Kathy delves into the crazy world of dinner and birthday parties, the inevitable feeding of the in-laws and other guests, plus dining out and the not always convenient conveniences.
Reading Shut Up and Eat is almost like sitting down and having a conversation with a friend (with the exception that none of my friends are as funny as she is). Even the recipes included in the book, ones that seem to have passed her family’s scrutiny test, are funny to read.
I often found myself laughing out-loud or nodding my head in knowing understanding as I read through the book. I especially loved the quotes at the start of each chapter; one famous quote and one counter quote from Kathy Buckworth on how insane or outdated the famous quote is. I don’t usually give myself time to read but Shut Up and Eat was a fun, cheeky read that I thoroughly enjoyed. And hey, if some of Kathy’s recipes worked with her kids, they might just work with mine too.
