Food Friday: Faux Recipes

Faux recipes  often find their way into community cookbooks. Recipes such as How to Cook Your Husband have been found in community cookbooks for decades.

Spoonful of Joy by the First Baptist Church of Bessemer Alabama has several of these types of recipes. There's a few that involve food while others dictate secrets to a better life.




So in case you need to explain basic cooking skills to the "worst cook" in your family, here's a recipe for Boiled  Water.




Now, if you decide that you need to cook for a large party on your next safari, here's a recipe for Elephant Stew. (And no, I do not condone the hunting or cooking of elephants).



And for those who want to know the secret to raising  children, consider this.

  1. Oh, hilarious! These are all precious. I especially love the third one. It's the way my cousin raised her four kids -- because they had a big grassy field right next door. They went out with the dogs to chase the cows (cows were no danger, notoriously slow). "Pour brook gently over pebbles." Nice.
