Cookin’ with Coolio: 5 Star Meals at a 1 Star Price by Coolio ($12.19)

Best known for the hip-hop anthem, “Gangsta’s Paradise,” and the theme song for 90s Nickelodeon show Kenan & Kel, rapper and actor Coolio is also a lesser known early adopter of the Internet cooking show. Cookin’ with Coolio was a web-based cooking instruction program starring the rapper in 2008! Coolio expresses a love of food and states that the only thing he’s been doing longer than rapping is cooking. This book is based on the short-lived web show and includes recipes built around “solid comfort foods with a healthy twist that don’t break the bank.”

This is the 5th copy that I have purchased. The first one I bought for a gift, and I had to keep it for myself. This book is hilarious, and the recipes are very real and delicious. Since, I have purchased four more times for gifts, and I am sure this will not be my last.Vanessa & Rob
