Rick & Bubba's big Honkin' Book of GRUB

By Rick Burgess
&
Bill "Bubba" Bussey
with
Martha Bolton

The first chapter is the
Rick & Bubba "Hey, you got to live" Diet,
Which pretty much tells it all.   If you are on a diet, get off it, and eat.
The food they describe is just good food, don't forget the butter or Mayo, or any other condiment that you would want. 
One of my favorite quotes from the book
"If you're going on a diet, then just eat less food, don't start messing around with diet versions of regular food that were never meant to be fat free."
 "Fat-free Cheesecake? Ice cream?  Butter?  Haven't we carried ths practical joke on long enough?"

Also included in this book are their 10 favorite places to eat, and their Food Fairs and Festivals of interest.
Rick and Bubba have something to say about casseroles, too.  In fact, if it has anything to do with food, these two have something to say about it, and I have to say I agree with most of their statements.
There are some recipes in the book, listed under
Rick & Bubba's Secret Recipe File.  Think I'll head to the kitchen and give them a try.

I had to laugh at their advice about eating fried chicken, with a fork and knife.
Somehow it just isn't the same.

I'm sure part of it was meant to be tongue in cheek but, if you enjoy hearing it told the way it really is, read this book.

Oh-Jettie- I think I would really like THIS "cookbook". It reminds me of another one that I have- I think it is called, "I like to have died"...it is all about what Southern folks take to the after-funeral dinner and is just a hoot to read- Thanks for the review.
