Over 30-plus seasons, The Simpsons has managed to showcase all manner of food—not just beer and donuts, though those are probably the most frequently spotlighted. Today, io9 has a very fun peek at The Unofficial Simpsons Cookbook, written by Laurel Randolph, the mega-Simpsons fan and prolific cookbook author behind the blog and Instagram account The Joy of Cooking Milhouse.

The Unofficial Simpsons Cookbook includes 70 recipes inspired by The Simpsons, from the iconic (Krusty Burgers) to the episode-specific (“Homer’s Patented Space-Age Out-of-This-World Moon Waffles”)—and if you’re not as frequent a visitor to Springfield as Randolph is, she’s helpfully noted which episode inspired each recipe at the top of every new entry. The cookbook also features a foreword from former Simpsons showrunner Bill Oakley, and is billed as being aimed at “chefs of all ages and levels”—good news if your kitchen skills hover closer to “Homer” than “Marge.” Read on for a pair of recipes from the colorful cookbook.
