5 Cooking Books You Probably Shouldn’t Give Your Grandma for Christmas

The best things in life are usually things your grandma wouldn’t approve of. Like last-minute Vegas trips, triple-stacked whiskey shots and skinny dipping in the midst of winter. Oh, and these cookbooks. Your grandma definitely would NOT approve of these cookbooks. So we took the liberty of featuring these non-grandma friendly recipe books for your personal collection.


1. EpicMealTime CookBook

This precious lil’ thing comes from the charming boys over at EpicMealTime. You know, the geniuses who created Green Pancake Potato Stacks, the Bacon Christmas Tree, the Super Sloppy Valentine’s Day Sundae, etc. All with a healthy helping of  bacon, of course. Luckily, if you’re inebriated enough or just having a craving for insane food, the EpicMealTime CookBook will teach you everything you need to know to make your meal, well, epic.

[$39.99 @ EpicMealTime]


 2. Baked!: 35 Marijuana Munchies to Make and Bake

Gone are the days when you would waste a week’s worth of maryjane in a failed attempt to make mac n’ cheese brownies that ended in the fire department showing up at 3 am. First off, you don’t use a microwave, silly. Second, use shake and save the good stuff for later. Luckily, there’s Baked!, a guide featuring delicious offerings such as “space cakes” and classic hash brownies.

While the authors can’t guarantee that you won’t set your apartment on fire, they do promise that their tried and true recipes will deliver “cannabilicious results every time.”

3. The Boozy Baker

Green Tea and Banana Cake with Sake Syrup, Homemade Bourbon Vanilla Extract and 73 more delicious spiked sweets + 25 cocktail recipes make The Boozy Baker a sheer inebriated delight. There’s nothing like dainty and deviously spirited pastries to perk up those family reunions during the holidays.

 4. Your Guide to Making Moonshine, Whiskey, Vodka, Rum …

The first time I had moonshine I was struck by a sudden urge to make the marvelous stuff myself. It was sweeter and more potent than any store-bought liquor I had ever tasted, yet I was at a lost at how to even start the DIY process. Fortunately, The Home Distiller’s Workbook: Your Guide to Making Moonshine, Whisky, Vodka, Rum and So Much More! (Vol.1) gives you a step-by-step walk through of how to make your own badass stash of moonshine and “pretty much any other liquor in the comfort of your own kitchen.”

 5. Fifty Shades of Chicken

While most foodies prefer their their meals and BDSM to be separate, there’s nothing wrong with (ahem) semi-nude men delicately handling raw chicken breasts and cooking up such things as “Sticky Chicken Fingers.” While the 50 Shades of Chicken: A Parody in a Cookbook is a cheeky nod towards the bestselling risqué novel Fifty Shades of Grey, I’m still not complaining about the semi-nude men clad in aprons. And frankly, neither should you.
