It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here
I enjoy my Bobby Flay books as well. If you like Mexican, get a Rick bayless book as someone else suggested. The recipes in his 'Mexican Everyday' book are very easy to make on week nights....it changed the way I cook at home, literally. I also enjoy his Authentic Mexican.
Do you have any Thomas Keller books? Ad Hoc At Home is a good one to start with before picking up The French Laundry.
Modernist Cuisine books would also be a good choice. Focus more on books like this to become a more rounded chef, instead up buying a half dozen BBQ books that are all nearly identicle.
