My Take on the Book
As a father who likes to cook, this book, is an amazing collection of recipes and adventures that men have had cooking for their families. Many of the selections within the book as humorous, and all are down-to-earth and easy to understand. There were a ton of great recipes that I am looking forward to trying myself including the Meatloaf recipe (I love Meatloaf) as well as the Lone Star State of Mind Chili! These are only two of the recipes, but there are SO many more that will make your mouth water.
Outside of good recipes, the story also shares the experiences of fathers cooking for and with their families, which can be both fun and sometimes harrowing at times. All-in-all though this book takes a pretty informal tone which makes it easy to read, and easy to get through. I had a ton of fun reading the book, and it was one that took me only a few days to read through and now I want to go back and start trying the recipes that I ear-marked along the way through in my first reading!
