Wanna to make pasta like a rasta? Become a kitchen pimp? Learn to cook Blasian or Ghettalian feasts? Then, sister, you will love Cookin' With Coolio: 5 Star Meals at a 1 Star Price, ($11) the new cookbook from, yes, that Coolio. The rapper turned Ghetto Gourmet taught himself how to cook as a child, and has been whipping up inexpensive comfort food meals with a healthy twist ever since. Fun recipe names like Pimpin' the Chicken and Shrimp Alli Bubba will have you reaching for a frying pan. The techniques are basic, but a few of the measurements, like "a dime bag of salt" or a "nickel bag of seasoning salt" don't make much sense. That's okay; good cooking, like good music, is all about improvisation. Word. (Yeah, that's right, we cool.)
