Where did that crazy name come from?

Looking through an Allrecipes newsletter the other day, it was talking about some recipes on here with the most unusual names, may be even crazy names.  So I set myself the challenge to find two recipes with unusual names and give them a try.  Yesterday I pulled all the ingredients out and worked on the following two cookie recipes:

Bones of the dead cookies


Better than sex cookies

What I would like to know is have you even named a recipe with an unusual name and whats’s the craziest recipe name you have come across.

I have found a stupid hotdog thing, or how about this-butts-for-you.  You could even try lump soup, or may be you would prefer a red rooster.  If you need something a little stronger there is even a tiger paw.  Now if you don’t have time to get to the cobbler you may need the rubber sole.  No time for a vacation this year then try this recipe for a Paradise Island.  Mom’s to be may want to avoid the Dirty Diaper. What ever your preference I’m sure you will find it here on AR.

If you want to serve something a little different, take a look at these recipes.

Great blog, love all the names. I have had better than sex chocolate cake at a church function once. I remember all the older ladies were blushing at the name, but they sure did devour that cake.

Yes, I have made pork with unusual names (not unusual for us, but maybe to others?): “Tourtière” (French-Canadian Pork Pie), and “Cretons” (French-Canadian pork spread for breakfast on whole wheat toast, not made often but used to be a staple in French-Canadian households…we eat much healthier) [both of my recipes passed down from Mémère, but we never make with ground cloves in our particular French-Canadian family just like Mémère!]… And, my Mother made “German Beef Rouladen” with bacon, etc., but without pickles! …Okay… ---> Sorry, but I could not resist listing several OTHER actual All Recipes PORK/PIG dishes (I personally have not made) that have VERY UNUSUAL NAMES! [Obviously, other AR people have made them)… ---> LIKE THESE: Hog Maw, Hog and Kisses, Hog’s Head Cheese, Pigs in a Blanket, Pig Burger, Barbequed Pig, Pigs in Blankets, Blueberry Pigs, Pig Slop, Pig Pickin’ Cake, Alabama Pulled Pig, Bill Wood’s Juicy Pigs, Pickled Pig’s Feet, Roast Suckling Pig, Candied Bacon Pigs, Southern Style Pig Tails, O’Reilly’s Pig Wings, Jalapeno Scorpion Pigs, Schweine Ohren (Pig’s Ears), Owen’s Peachy Pig Out, Marranitos (Mexican Pig-Shaped Cookies), Paksiw na Pata (Pig’s Feet Stew), Chick and Ox’s Pig Pickin’ Sauce, Guisado de Cerdo ('cerdo' in English is pork), Piggy Wiggys, Crescent Dogs, Pepparkakor II (Swedish cookie commonly in a pig shape), Scrapple (made from “bits and pieces of the pig not sited for anything else”), Steve’s Bodacious Barbecue Ribs (“Pig-cicles”), Piggy-iggy Casserole, Schweinshaxe (dish of pigs knuckles), Oven Kalua Pork, Chinese Pork Roast, Italian Pork pie, Big Ray’s Pork Pie, Hearty Pork Pie, Pork Tamale Pie, Italian-Canadian Meat Pie, Cephalonian Meat Pie (Greek lamb and pork pot pie), Handy Meat Pies (ground beef and bulk pork sausage), Natchotoches Meat Pies (Louisiana, ground beef and bulk pork sausage), Goan Pork Vindaloo, and am sure there are other pork dishes on All Recipes with unusual names? Why do pork recipe have so many unusual names? I guess people just love their pork! ~ Sorry this list got sooooo long!!! I started compiling names and it was interesting to do. Can’t wait to see what others post on this Blog!

I make a chocolate cookie that has so many things in it that if you double the recipe you need to mix it in the bathtub........that is what I told my kids anyway and so they named it "Bathtub Cookies" :)

About Me
A little about me, I am a wife and Mum of two gorgeous boys aged 18 and 23, and now mummy to two adorable English Cocker Spaniel puppies named Brie and Henri. We have been living in the US now for 5 years. (You will also see me on allrecipes.co.uk - AR's UK site). I guess like most other European’s I don’t eat to live, but live to eat!!! One of my great passions in life is food. Good home cooked, fresh produce. Especially if it is sourced locally. I truly believe that it is so important at the end of the day for a family to sit down and eat a home cooked dinner together. I spend a lot of my time in the kitchen now, which always amuses my husband. A few years back we had a small public house and restaurant in the Derbyshire Countryside (England). Never once would I venture in the kitchen. With all those professionals there was certainly no need for an amateur! Should you wish you can contact me at thebritishbaker@mail.com
My favorite things to cook
More than anything I adore baking. Cakes, Cookies (or biscuits as they are known to me) and my latest love is baking bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Some of my earlier memories are sitting at my Grandma’s kitchen table in England, watching her bake. She insisted on having to bake a fresh cake everyday. My Grandad was a big cake fan, and a cake always had to be kept in the pantry just in case a visitor should call. Not that you could move in the pantry for more sugar, flour and butter then any village store. (Just in case food rationing ever came back). Unfortunately my Grandma has recently passed away, but her passion for baking will always live on through me and I hope that in time my baking skill will do her justice.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that actually turns out how it is supposed too!!!
My cooking tragedies
Oh my goodness where do I start, like everyone I have had the usual tragedies, sponge cakes that have sunk in the middle, over cooked pie crusts, bread that has just failed to rise but I can thankfully say with a little patience and practice I am finaly getting better!!!
