This is not like a regular cookbook. It’s a cool cookbook. For starters, it comes from Jonathan Bennett, a.k.a. Aaron Samuels himself. Bennett and chef Nikki Martin—both of whom you’ve seen on The Food Network countless times—teamed up to dish out recipes that will satisfy everyone’s inner plastic. If every other sentence that comes out of your mouth contains a Mean Girls reference, then this is the cookbook for you.
The Burn Cookbook is broken into eight different sections: Whore d’Oeuvres; Regina’s All-Carb Diet; I Really Want to Lose Three Pounds; On Wednesdays We Eat, Drink, and Wear Pink; Cramming for Finals; Mean Grills (She Doesn’t Even Grill Here); Happy Hour Is from Four to Six; and Get In, Loser, It’s Desserts.
Each recipe is so pun-tastic, Mean Girls fans will eat the whole cookbook up.
Some of my favorites include the “Boo You Whore-iental Salad,” the “Why Are You White? Russian,” and the “You Will Get Pregnant and Diet Smoothie.” And there’s plenty more where that came from.
Best of all, The Burn Cookbook hits shelves just one day shy of October 3rd, which everyone knows is Mean Girls Appreciation Day. Bennett and Martin were kind enough to share their recipe for the “You Can’t Sip with Us,” a refreshing (and, more importantly, pink) rosé cocktail. Because on Wednesdays, we drink pink.
