Great uplifting read. Whether your heartbreak is due to a failed romance, a lost job, a family fight, or just a bad day, food and friends are what get most of us through it. This book is filled with great recipes that will satisfy your tummy, distract you, and make you feel accomplished. My favorites include the Korean Barbequed Beef (great marinade on chicken too) and the Peach Blueberry Slab Pie. The book also has some inspiring essays and fun tips for mending a broken heart. Enjoy.

I got this book for my wife and she really liked it -- hoping she'll make me that Lemon Chicken Lasagna soon!

During many years of being a work-at-home dad who cooked all the family meals, I prided myself on being adaptable and nutritional on the fly. Although heart break recovery kitchen's origins are decidedly female-oriented, it brings the goods for even the most demanding alpha male. After all, any kitchen dude has gotta love a cookbook that includes bloody mary and grilled cheese sandwich recipes that feature bacon. I also want to second the previous endorsement of the veggie-packed meatloaf recipe (adding chopped-up flavored sausage in place of the ground pork lessens its healthy qualities but gives it a great flavor boost ... see earlier reference to being adaptable). The best cookbooks deliver the goods on sound meals but also offer great entertainment in the process. Jeanne and Lindsey do just that.

From the first morsels like "Pity Party," "Craving Comfort" and "Life Ain't No Picnic Unless You Make It One" as chapter headings, you know you're into something good with recipes that soothe the soul. What I love about the book is, you don't need a broken heart to enjoy the heartiness of the veggie-packed meat loaf, the richness of an ale-cheddar soup or the warmth of the butternut squash chili. The author has bushels of experience blending flavors in creative, decadent or just plain happy ways. Her tongue-in-cheek method of describing how to cook each dish is a refreshing change from the cold, stark instructions of most standardized cookbooks. Keep a copy within reach of the stove, because it's so easy to find a recipe you can make in a flash - with ingredients you probably already have. It's a "doing life" cookbook, a book you give your best friend, with a wink and a smile.
There's more than great food here, too. Pour over the personal insights that Ambrose has included from her own delicious set of friends. You'll find tips, too, like how to wrestle a hangover or why carbs bust stress. This isn't just a cookbook for opening and executing, it's one for prowling through life's sticky, sweet, crackling, burning moments and finding guidance. At the end of any day, good or bad, heartbreak or no, who doesn't need the world's most reliable recipe for a perfect grilled cheese sandwich?
