I admit that I'm kind of at a loss here. I just don't know what to make of a Methodist-born billionaire publishing a "lifestyle" book full of kosher recipes.

Stacy Cohen is the wife of Israeli-born entrepreneur Mouli Cohen, whose "businesses have created thousands of jobs in the United States and generated more than $3 billion in stockholder value."

Born and raised in Texas, Stacy converted to Judaism when she married Mouli. Apparently, marrying rich and converting to Judaism made her an expert on all things luxurious and, um — "kosher." Her book, the Kosher Billionaire's Secret Recipe, offers readers her very own, personal guidelines to living a "kosher life grounded in spirituality." In addition to the 50 recipes, the book includes a "total well-being nutritional program."

But wait, there's more! Most of the 224 pages (read: wasted trees) are actually big ol' photos of Miss Stacy, "wearing dozens of outfits from her collection of designer ensembles and jewels."

She poses in gorgeous settings that range from her Belvedere mansion to Paris, India and other exotic locales. In one of the most provocative shots, she wears a satiny bathrobe while standing above some of her shoes, a boutique's worth of colorful, high-end heels that spill down a staircase like sparkly spiked rocks on a river of deep-pile carpet.

What's going on here? Did Stacy miss the memo that Green is the new Black, and that the Imelda Marcos approach to shoe shopping is so last century? Could she appear any more out of touch? Go her for taking her new, kosher lifestyle so seriously, but really — someone oughta tell her.
