Skinny Bitch author and former model Kim Barnouin has a new cookbook out, and it’s just as bitchy as the rest of the books in the series — actually, a lot gentler, I must say. It’s called Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Every Cookbook, and I’m a fan….

In addition to truly scrumptious and creative recipes, there are great tips scattered throughout the book (kitchen tips, tips on eating seasonally, diet tips, antioxidant tips, tea tips, etc.). I’ve haven’t read a cookbook cover-to-cover in a long time…. But I did, indeed, read this one cover to cover. Rest assured, it has none of the horrifying and distressing information that made the original Skinny Bitch so powerful and provocative (and, in turn, largely responsible for turning yours truly vegan in the first place). The information in Kim’s The Ultimate Everyday Cookbook is positive and encouraging, and the photos are literally mouth-watering.

Although I’ll stick to the simpler recipes in the book, here’s a video of Kim making her Butternut Squash Ravioli on The Today Show. Enjoy!

By the way, as of today, Halloween (in 10 minutes), I’m breaking up with Starbucks soy chai lattes. We are DUNZO. I’m breaking up with this horrid drink on Kim’s advice — I love how she likens food addictions to relationships (in one of those yummy tip pages in the book). I’ve never broken up with anyone before. I guess there’s a first time for everything….

Love!
