You Can’t Sip With Us

For Hello Giggles. Interviewed and written by Elizabeth Entenman.

Close your eyes and try to imagine a world without Mean Girls. It’s nearly impossible, right? When the movie hit theaters in 2004, it was an instant classic. Mean Girls quotes immediately became part of our vocabulary. The movie went on to inspire beauty productstattoos, and even a Broadway musical. And now, it’s taking over our kitchens. Introducing The Burn Cookbook: An Unofficial Unauthorized Cookbook for “Mean Girls” Fans.

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.

  • Vibes are 💯 at this cozy WeHo rooftop spot.
  • S A L A D  all  D A Y • one of my favorite things to make is a perfectly curated salad with all the freshest lettuces, herbs, a really good shaved parm, and tossed with a bright citrus vinaigrette. Salads don’t have to be rabbit food, they can be hearty, decadent and even an entire meal. I especially love that the foundation of a really good salad comes rooted from the earth.
This salad is a nightly go-to and crowd pleaser. Wild rocket, radicchio, torn herbs like mint, basil and parsley, grano padano cheese and gently dressed with lemon, EVOO, sea salt and cracker pepper. Need some protein? Easy. Add grilled chicken and  dinner is served. Don’t forget a glass of ever so slightly chilled Pinot Noir. Yum.
