Old Boyfriend Buffet, from Secret Recipes for the Modern Wife by Nava Atlas (Simon and Schuster, 2009)

Secret Recipes for the Modern Wife was inspired by my friends and acquaintances who were going through mid-life divorces. In this book, designed to look like a 1950s cookbook, photos of the weird food of that era are juxtaposed with a corresponding “recipe” which is actually a description of the universally difficult aspects of marriage: Gender Role Casserole, Way Too Much on Your Plate, Soufflé of Fallen Expectations, and many more.
