As "Mob Wives" star Renee Graziano so eloquently put it, "It's an unfortunate reality that most of the men in this lifestyle end up going to jail." Which is why Graziano and sister's new cookbook "How to Use a Meat Cleaver: Secrets and Recipes from a Mob Family's Kitchen" offers tips on how to sneak meatballs into prison, according to the NY Post on Feb. 6.

If you're thinking that it sounds absolutely ridiculous, that's because it is. In the upcoming cookbook written by the Graziano sisters, Renee details that you can easily sneak meatballs into federal prison by purchasing a package of potato chips from the vending machine, taking the packaging outside, dumping out the chips and fill the package with meatballs, then go back inside. Sounds simple enough right?

Renee has had plenty experience dealing with prisons as her ex-husband, father, and many of her friends have been to prison for mob related crimes. The upcoming cookbook shares all kinds of secrets on how to get food to prisoners as well as great recipes such as carbonara, pot roasts, and cacciatore.

The book is appropriately named, which anyone knows if they have ever watched an episode of "Mob Wives" with Renee Graziano.
