We found this bit of amazing in an article detailing the best and worst cookbooks for holiday gifting. You can guess what category this fell under, but you'd be wrong. It's a "worst" pick, as evidenced by this recipe for "Cher's Baked Beans": two cans baked beans, ketchup, brown sugar.
The bad news is the book is out of print. The good news is Amazon has 31 used copies beginning at $2.17. What does that mean? It means you won't have to turn back time to believe in these recipes, you dark lady.
