jon and kate plus eight, kate cookbookKate has a lot on her plate these days—what with rumors of a divorce and all. But that hasn't stopped her from writing a new cookbook, Love is in the Mix: Making Meals into Memories, which is scheduled for release this fall.

According to US Weekly, Love Is in the Mix will offer nutritious recipes and tips on eating organically, and promises to teach readers how to create family food traditions and how to feed a large family on a budget. Kate will also offer insight into handling picky eaters, making lunchtime fun, and planing meals for vacations. The book will include family photos and anecdotes about her kids.

Excerpts from the book have not yet been released, but commenters on Amazon.com have already started slamming Kate's previously released recipes and say she stole them "from product boxes and magazine articles." One person wrote that her recipe for "Monkey Munch" is the same as one on the Chex website and calls it "plagiarism." Others were shocked that the woman who once said that "real cooks don't need recipes" was qualified to write a cookbook. They wrote on Amazon.com that on the show, Kate does little to "no cooking, no meals, just snacks—crackers, yogurt, grapes, cukes and peppers in pita. The woman can't cook."

Do you think Kate can cook? Will you buy her cookbook?
