Flavored with frustration, simmering with rage, and iced with affection, these recipes will make you laugh as you multitask your way through the challenges and joys of matrimony.

Whether you're a new bride or an old hand at marriage, it's always handy to find fresh and fascinating recipes to add to your repertoire. And the recipes in this collection are perfect for you, the busy, overextended, and occasionally conflicted modern wife. Enveloped in them are the secrets -- delicious, distressing, and everything in between -- that accompany women on their marital journeys. Here are recipes you won't find in just any cookbook:

Beans 'n' Weenies of Sexual Tension Midlife Stress-Stuffed Cabbage Control-Freak Cookies Soufflé of Fallen Expectations A Fairly Satisfactory Family Stew

Though she grills societal norms with gleeful relish, Nava Atlas never loses sight of marriage's simple, loving rewards. The result is a feast of retro art, sly wit, and cultural commentary. No woman will be able to read this without thinking of five friends she must share it with!
