Do you ever find yourself leafing through your favorite cookbook, casually sipping absinthe and listening to Lil’ Wayne mixtapes, when suddenly you feel a little woozy and start to see Weezy himself inside the book.

Happens to us literally twice a week. In fact, these food-rap hallucinations are becoming so pervasive, we felt it was time to share them with you.

While looking through some of 2012’s best food books over the holiday season, these visions visited us in a very real way. If any of these projects actually come to fruition, crown us the Nostradamus of Noshing. And if not, we promise to seek professional help soon. Click through the slide show above to see the covers.
