It may seem strange that presidential hopeful Ron Paul would release a cookbook during his campaign, but he's done this sort of thing before.

His latest cookbook -- The Ron Paul Family Cookbook -- is available for order through his presidential campaign Web site.

Packed full of photos of the entire Paul family, the book also includes Carol Paul's 'The American Dream' which briefly recounts the history of Ron Paul and the Paul Family, according to the book's description, which also states that the book has 28 pages of recipes.

This is not the first time the Paul family has tried to work its way into American hearts via the kitchen.

Amazon lists a few pamphlet cookbooks by Paul and his wife, including The Ron Paul Family and Friends Cookbook and The Ron Paul Family Holiday Cookbook. EBay has The Ron Paul Family Spring Cookbook pamphlet posted for auction.

Books have been all the rage lately with GOP presidential hopefuls.

Michele Bachmann released her memoir Core of Conviction: My Story earlier this month. Herman Cain released This is Herman Cain! My Journey to the White House in October. Newt Gingrich published A Nation Like No Other: Why American Exceptionalism Matters in June.

Paul has written several books, but this has bucked the trend.
