Reading through one of her other cook books, I thought that I would give Daniel Zwicke other novels a try. In his newest novel we learn recipes from The Big Lebowski, The Dude. This novel has a full array of stories and recipes that are both delicious and tell a great narrative. Daniel does a great job making this a hybrid novel for people who love cook books, but also love reading stories. The story side of this novel is great and is told with great detail and an laid back, easy tone to understand. The stories are a great addition to the novel and adds a layer of comic, something you wouldn't find in an average cook book. All of the recipes in this novel are great, and each one in informative about how to cook. They're are some simple recipes inside of this novel, but then they're are a few difficult one's for the common person. I would recommended this novel to any fan of The Big Lebowski as you're going to fall in love with the stories and the recipes. Anybody who read any of his other books on other recipes will also fall in love with this novel as well.

Reviewed by Katelyn Hensel for Readers' Favorite Got Any Kahlua: Collected Recipes of the Dude by Daniel Zwike is the most bromantic cookbook I've ever read. This is not your mom's cookbook, and it certainly isn't your grandma's cookbook. You are more likely to find recipes for saucy meats and cocktails than you are to find some fancy chicken cordon bleu because this book is a DUDE'S cookbook. Never in my life has a cookbook made me laugh until I read this one. I can almost see my hick, bro, burly, manly uncle writing this one. It just SMACKS of masculinity and a lack of culinary skills which is impressive. This is a book for those on a budget, for those who aren't really that picky when it comes to calories and a balanced diet as long as it's tasty and full of meat or alcohol. I enjoyed it so much that I read it in one quick sitting!  Daniel Zwike knows his audience...Dudes. Like I said, there are cocktail recipes up the wazoo, most of them variations on "the dude's" favorite varieties of White Russians. I had the opportunity to try these dude-friendly drinks when making them for my fiance's poker night, and let me tell you, they were a smash hit! While this isn't a traditional recipe book, it's got a lot of hidden gold in there and it's spelled out in a way that is easy for guys to understand. There's no complicated, ten thousand step process for each meal and/or recipe. It's all, "take a can of X ingredient, add a chopped cup of Y ingredient, and there you go!" I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and have saved a copy in my recipes folder in case I need more dude-friendly drinks and meals for my hubster-to-be!
