Rick & Bubba's Big Honkin' Book of Grub
It's time for another book review! I just finished reading Rick & Bubba's Big Honking Book of Grub. When I requested this book, I thought it was a cookbook by two of my favorite radio talkshow hosts who call themselves "The Two Sexiest Fat Men Alive." I was a little surprised to find that it was actually a book about food - specifically Rick & Bubba's thoughts on food - with a small selection of recipes at the end. I listen to Rick & Bubba on the radio every morning on my drive to work and I think they're pretty funny. This book is obviously meant to be comedic, but I honestly didn't think it was that funny. I kept thinking that if I heard them saying these things on the radio, it would be great, but reading it on paper just isn't the same. I liked that each chapter was split into short sections, so you could pick it up and read small sections at a time. I would use this book more as a time-passer - stick it in the kitchen or on an end table to grab for a few minutes at a time. I will say this though - knowing how much these guys love food, I'm looking forward to trying a few of their favorite recipes in the back of the book!
