Gwyneth's back! Not that she ever goes away.

Oh look. It's Gwyneth Paltrow on the cover of the new issue of Bon Appetit. Because she's everywhere.

Acting? Yeah, that's fine. But then there was the singing. And now she's pushing her cookbook, My Father's Daughter and cooking on every gab show.

Like Ellen, where she can't control her heat and calls Ellen a jerk.

Who wants to bet that her cookbook will join these other celebrity cookbooks in the bargain bin before it's time to make Thanksgiving dinner?

The cookbook-based-on-fictional-TV-show is the worst of the celebrity cookbooks. It assumes that its fans are rabid enough to want to eat just like the characters they love!Who does that?

Oh, right. Trekkies. They can do it with this book. Neelix, chef for the U.S.S. Voyager, adapts recipes from all the Star Trek franchises in this 1999 book.


Desperate Housewives Cookbook: Delicious Dishes from Wisteria Lane

Desperate Housewives fans aren't as interested in cooking like their Wisteria Lane counterparts, leaving this 2007 book in the bargain bin. It can be yours for $12.

Mariel's Kitchen: Simple Ingredients for a Delicious and Satisfying Life

Who? Oh, right - Ernest's granddaughter and the chick from that lesbian track and field movie. She claims there was a demand for her recipes in this video, watched 6200 times in the two years since the book's release.

The Tammy Wynette Southern Cookbook

This doesn't seem like a bad idea. After all, Ms. Wynette was a country queen, once a single mom, partner in several tumultuous marriages. She probably had to fry a chicken once or twice in her time. Her cookbook was reprinted a decade after her 1997 death so her Mississippi-style stuffed bell peppers live on.
