I never got the point of those. It's a lot cheaper and more practical to look up recipes yourself, if you don't know them, and buy products in the grocery store. I may not be quite ready to assign them to Mordor, but they always seemed too much like 10 Easy Ways To Swindle People. Bill Ferny, perhaps?
