Once I heard Paris Hilton boast on a radio show that she was making pancakes in her pajamas. A date with the Bisquick box—that's probably all the cooking celebs can squeeze into their busy schedules. But beyond the instant batter, Amy Sedaris likes whipping up cupcakes and Elton John craves shrimp curry.

We dug up recipes from celebs, both past and present. Some look downright nasty, and most remind me of those old church cookbooks featuring weird combinations of mayo, fried onions, Jell-O, and canned cranberry sauce. Take Britney Spears and her Cheetos chicken casserole: the name alone gives me goosebumps. Celebrity recipes you might actually want to try, after the jump.
