If Bob Dylan wrote a recipe, he probably wouldn't rework one of his song titles to name it. But wouldn't that be fun? We went ahead and mused on a few for him — just in case he catches the culinary bug in the near (or far) future. In honor of the release of his latest album Tempest, which hit shelves today, we reworked 9 popular titles to our stomachs' likings.

1. If You See Her, Make Jell-O

We can't confirm whether or not Dylan makes his own Jell-O, but if he does, this should without question be the front runner for the name of his recipe.

Actual Song Title: If You See Her, Say Hello

2. Fu-Ever Young

Censorship controversies aside, we'd be hard-pressed to believe anyone — including Dylan — isn't a fan of authentic Chinese cuisine. Especially one of its tastiest dishes, Egg Fu Young.

Actual Song Title: Forever Young

3. It Ain't Meat, Babe

You say you're looking for a meal that won't boost your cholesterol, "but it ain't meat, babe. No, no, no, it ain't meat babe. It ain't meat you're lookin' for, babe." That's okay. We have substitutes that are just as delicious (see the recipes below).

Actual Song Title: It Ain't Me, Babe

4. Don't Think Twice Baked Potatoes, It's All Right

Unless they're truffled, or smothered in cheese, or sprinkled with bacon, or drowned in butter or made Greek-style or or or...

Actual Song Title: Don't Think Twice, It's All Right

5. Knockwurst On Heaven's Door

Because Oktoberfest 2012 is knockin' on ours.

Actual Song Title: Knockin' On Heaven's Door

6. Sad-Eyed Ladyfingers of the Lowlands

We're being ironic here, can't you see? There's nothing sad about ladyfingers, especially not when they're used to make tiramisu.

Actual Song Title: Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands

7. It's Alright, Ma (It's Only Bleeding)

And if it isn't, our bet is it's probably overdone.

Actual Song Title: It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)

8. If Not For Moo

There would be no cheese, and what a terrible thing that would be.

Actual Song Title: If Not For You

9. Most Likely You'll Go Your Way, And I'll Go Dine

Go ahead, eat out tonight. You deserve it.

Actual Song Title: Most Likely You'll Go Your Way, And I'll Go Mine
