The Iguana Cookbook and Other Weird Cookbooks I Admittedly Do Not Own...YET

At various times, I've mentioned my extensive collection of cookbooks. Hundreds and hundreds of them. But not until today have I seen a list of cookbooks where I do not own a single one. That's because The Huffington Post has compiled quite the list! A list they call "The Most WTF Cookbooks of All Time."

You have got to take a look at their slideshow of cookbook covers! From a serial killer's cookbook to trailer park down home cooking to cooking with iguanas and a book dedicated exclusively to testicles. And lots of other random, unusual cookbooks.

Now my cookbook collection, as large as it is, feels a bit boring! Maybe I should start eating iguana. Where does one purchase a cooking iguana? And are they kosher?

What a fun idea! You inspired me to look at my collection to find my most unique and interesting cookbooks. I found 2 that I particularly like...One is "Cooking with Catfish Hunter: Tasty Recipes for People with Diabetes" and the other is "Smokehouse Ham, Spoon Bread, & Scuppernong Wine: The Folklore and Art of Southern Appalachian Cooking." Possum and Sweet Potatoes or Deep-Fat Fried Rattlesnake might just be the featured entree of our next company meal!

the HuPo cookbooks seem more WTF for their shock jocky covers, as far as really eccentric cookbooks go -- I think Seattle Weekly's list of 7 still top the charts (wait till you get to #1 on that list!)

Mom - That's awesome! You went back through your giant collection! Ha! Deep-Fat Fried Rattlesnake? Gross. And unique. I can't believe you have that book. I admit I do have an RV Cookbook. Not that I own an RV, but just that RVs require simple cooking, which also came in handy during my college years. :)

H.C. - Wow! What a great find. Thanks for sending that list. I cannot believe #1 on the list exists!!
