Overall I would say that The Dean Bros. Cookbook: From The Road was a pretty successful one. I would say that out of the 5 recipes I have made so far and blogged about, only one will not be made again and the other four will.
This book was an interesting read as well because it literally documents their travels through the lower 48. There are pictures and stores about of the food; pictures and stores about their travels, and pictures and stores about the restaurants that inspired the recipes in this cookbook.
This book would make a great holiday gift for someone who likes to travel or someone that lives in or is from the south!
These dry rub ribs were delicious and a change of pace from your normal ‘wet’ ribs.
These wings were a nice alternative to you normal chicken wings and wing sauce. They also seemed healthier to me because they were baked and no fried and have an avocado dipping sauce.
This apple pie was the highlight of this book! Who could go wrong with a graham cracker pie crust, carmel, and a streusel topping. The only thing I will do next time (because I WILL be making this pie on a regular biases, well as regular as I make pie) is to add more carmel and nuts to the recipe. How on earth can you go wrong with more carmel and nuts.
These snickerdoodles were good and chewy (when not over baked). But I am still on the hunt for the sinkerdoodle recipe that I grew up making!
