Rick & Bubba's Big Honkin' Book of Grub

Rick & Bubba's Big Honkin' Book of Grub is probably the weirdest cookbook I have ever read!! I love to cook and also love to find great new recipes, unfortunately, I was very disappointed with this book. It is filled with odd humor and sarcasm, not good recipes. I was hoping for a humorous yet sincere approach from these guys on eating habits and recipes, what I got was advice on how to eat everything unhealthy I can get my hands on.

On a lighter side, I did enjoy their sense of humor when it comes to church potlucks and reasons to attend the "Spam" convention. I didn't however, think it appropriate to list "Jesus feeding five thousand", "the last supper", or any other biblical reference as justification for overeating or eating unhealthy. I think if are into reverse psychology this book could work for you, however, if you take any of their advise seriously, you could end up on the next season of "Biggest Loser"

I would not recommend this book to anyone looking for a cookbook, the recipes aren't very original and there are lots of great cookbooks out there, sorry guys. On the other hand, if you are looking for a quirky approach to eating rules, this book could be for you.

I have been blessed with a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson for review.

Let all I say and do glorify the Lord!!!

Kaleidoscope is my first Patsy Clairmont book review. First of all, Patsy is a part of the Women of Faith, and if you are familiar with them, you know she is such a joy and has a funny way of sharing God's word. Patsy holds true to who she is in this book, it is a very entertaining book to read. She takes 30 Proverbs and turns them into her funny, true life stories that I believe all of us can relate to in some way.

I love the questions at the end of each Proverb. These questions really make you think about your own life and whether or not you are striving to live a Proverbs life. I think this book would be great as a Bible study/small group guide with weekly devotions.

As when you look through a kaleidoscope you see many different shapes and designs, Proverbs is a look at God's plan for our lives and the beauty of His design.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves the word of God and enjoys the humorous side of life!!
