5. Cooking with Kenny Rogers by Kenny Rogers and Dole


Published: 1987

Sadly, this wasn’t a cookbook about his delicious chicken; it was actually all about cooking with canned pineapples (damn you Dole).

7. The Sinatra Celebrity Cookbook: Barbara, Frank & Friends by Barbara Sinatra and Frank Sinatra


Published: 1996

I wouldn’t trust Frank’s culinary skills as much as I would his bartending.


8. Alice's Brady Bunch Cookbook by Ann B. Davis


Published: 1994

Ann B. Davis starts out the book by saying "Well, I don't cook - maybe a steak or a chop, but nothing that merits me giving any advice whatsoever."

9. Treasury of Great Recipes by Mary and Vincent Price


Published: 1965

Don’t let the creepy book cover fool you; Vincent and his wife, Mary, were foodies and cultivated the recipes from some of the world's finest restaurants.

10. Skinny Cooks Can’t Be Trusted: In The Kitchen by Mo’nique


Published: 2006

This cookbook might be best summed up by Amazon reviewer James K. Carrol:

“Apparently Monique can't cook and if she can she didn't include those recipes.”

12. Cookin' with Coolio: 5 Star Meals at a 1 Star Price by Coolio


Published: 2009

Where else are you going to find recipes for such classics as Bro-Ghetti, Crybaby Chicken, and Chicken Lettuce Blunts. Also, there is in entire chapter titled "Salad-Eatin' Bitches."
