Wannabe Husband Killer

I'm Releasing a Cookbook!

12/10/2011 3:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

She was sentenced to 20 years in prison for hiring a hitman to murder her husband -- but now, failed husband-killer Dalia Dippolito is cooking up a new scheme ... a book full of delicious recipes!

You’ll remember ... Dalia was convicted in June of soliciting to commit first-degree murder -- after her 2009 arrest, when caught paying an undercover cop to kill her hubby of 6 months.

29-year-old Dalia is now serving house arrest while waiting out an appeal to the 20-year sentence -- and in the meantime, she's keeping herself busy ... putting together a cookbook of her favorite recipes.

Dalia tells TMZ, she "poured [her] heart and soul into" the book -- which she describes as "a combination of cooking, health and nutrition, self-help, decorating and humor with a modern twist."

Right now, she's looking for a literary agent to help lock down a deal -- adding, "I want to teach people that you can bring the sexy back in the kitchen regardless of whatever you have going on in your life."

But who knows if it'll ever get done -- clearly, Dalia has problems finishing the job.

she should get 20 yrs. plus, why in god's name is she on house arrest. If she were a male under the same cir***stances she would be in prison period, but because she is a woman she gets to stay at home and write books.

The state of florida should do as the prison system in turkey does, put the women to work flat backing to pay for the cost of their stay. I am sure she would make some good money doing that and could keep 1% of the proceeds, after 20 years she would have the money she so badly wanted.

I'm curious how she cooks meals. Anti-freeze lime jello. Maybe some blacklaced sugar cookies. That will teach Mike a thing or two about what a good woman should be made of. You dodged the bullet once Mike, that's like winning the lottery!

She's still a convict she just changed her address. Don't think the law allows convicts to publish books and make money while she's a prisoner. Harvey?
