Not a cookbook, just a humorous take on food and "all you can eat" eating
If you are looking for a real cookbook, then don't stop here and keep on looking! When I found out I would be receiving this book from the Thomas Nelson book program, BookSneeze for bloggers, I was very excited. I collect cookbooks and any book with Pizzas, Onion Rings, and Fried Chicken on the front are right up my alley I thought. Well, out of 214 pages, there are only about 23 recipes all together. This book is more of a humorous way to look at eating and why Americans LOVE to eat. You will learn such things as "Diet starts with D-I-E for a reason", you will learn weight loss tips such as "Jog, instead of walk, to your refrigerator". The "Two Sexiest Fat Men Alive" will also provide you with a listing of all their all-time favorite places to eat, which even includes the best place on this side of the pearly gates to eat - the ultimate "Church Potluck"!Was this review helpful?

Perhaps if you are looking for a humorous book for a foodie in your life, or perhaps someone that has always dieted and just really wants to "Live" their life around the food they love, then this might be a good gift book for those individuals. On the other hand, if you are simply looking for a cookbook, you can just skip right over this one and move on to Betty Crocker or Martha Stewart!

Review of Rick & Bubba's Big Honkin Book of Grub
I really enjoyed the humor in this cookbook and some of the recipes. However, this really isn't a cookbook it seems. It didn't have as many recipes as I expected a cookbook to have but I guess that is to be expected because it's not your usual cookbook. This cookbook has more of their opinions, ideas and stories rather than just all of their favorite recipes. The recipes are arranged in a different order and spread throughout the cookbook.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
The recipes that are shared sound really good and I think I am going to try some of them this summer. However, I was a little disappointed that there aren't very many healthy types of recipes included for those of us who want to try to eat a little better or healthier. Overall I'm not sure I would really recommend this book, I would only recommend it to certain people who I think might like it.

Not a cookbook...really. It is just about food.
This book is written by two radio personalities. On their radio, they are probably really funny but honestly I just didn't get most of the humor.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I love cookbooks. I could just sit down and read a good cookbook in an afternoon. This book is not that way.
It is written a large font and that just got on my nerves. It was hard for me to read.
The recipes that are included in the book look fairly simple to make. The places that were listed where to eat looked really good and made me hungry.
As for making me grow in my faith, well, it didn't challenge me. However, it was not a book that was written to make in grow in faith.
If you are a fan of the radio show, you might like the book and get the humor. If not, well, you might just want to pass on.
Blessings to you!!! You are loved!!!
I was given this book by Thomas Nelson for review only.

rick & bubba's big honkin' book of grub is not a cookbook.
it's more a collection of personal preferences and "rules".Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
the print is large and easy to read. and the chapters are relevant to the book's own style. the substance, however, is lacking. there's a lot of talk. the authors are radio personalities. and actually, if they read their book on air, it'd do much better. because on print, it's a fail.
there are only 23 recipes in this 206 page book.
