5 Top Rated Recipe Books for Football season with great Customer Reviews

What makes a recipe great? When people who have followed these recipes and tell you of what they think about them is the best way to know whether these foods are great or not. In this post, I will be sharing the reviews of folks who have done just that. Below are reviews taken from amazon.com. I also looked at reviews that had top ratings. Here are the top 5 kindle version recipe books:

  1. Brunch at Bobby’s: 140 Recipes for the Best Part of the Weekend

This book is a bestseller. The author Bobby Flay has in this book 140 recipes starting with the lip-smacking cocktails, both spiked and virgin, that we have come to expect from him, along with hot and iced coffees and teas.

He then works his way through eggs; pancakes, waffles, and French toast (including flavored syrups and spreads); pastries (a first) and breads; salads and sandwiches; and side dishes. Pull up a seat and enjoy a Sangria Sunrise, Carrot Cake Pancakes with Maple-Cream Cheese Drizzle, Sautéed Bitter Green Omelets, and Wild Mushroom-Yukon Gold Hash.

“I took a cooking class that featured recipes from Brunch @ Bobby’s. The demonstration included a fabulous frittata topped with a mouth-watering cherry tomato sauce (p.108); a delicious fig, ham and cheese Panini (p.183) and very good churros (p.170). This book is doubly good in that we have another wonderful Bobby Flay cookbook to enjoy and one that targets breakfast, my favorite meal. Super recipes for traditional dishes include eggs, French toast, pancakes, and, of course, beverages for mid-morning blowouts abound. At least once, however, a recipe was included that probably wasn’t reviewed by the author: a tomato strata (p.218). The recipe looks good, but the write up stumbles. A strata is an baked egg dish made with cheese and French bread; and the write up recommends serving it as “a lovely side dish for poached or scrambled eggs”. Yeah right! Serve this egg dish as a side for eggs!” Robert K. Juul

“If you are a Bobby Flay fan or if you love breakfast food then you will love Brunch at Bobby’s. Any kinds of breakfast foods you can think of are covered. There are chapters for drinks, pancakes and waffles, eggs, pastries and breads, sandwiches, fruits, and sides. The recipes are on the more challenging side with many ingredients and many steps to complete. I think they will be worth the extra effort in the end. There are some unique and different recipes that look like they would be fun to try.

This is a beautiful cookbook. About half of the recipes have color photographs some of which are full-paged. A few interesting recipes that caught my eye include the carrot cake pancakes with maple cream cheese drizzle, the caramelized onion, spinach, and gruyere strata, and the bacon and hash brown quesadilla. You can see Bobby’s southwest style in a lot of the recipes. This is a wonderful cookbook for breakfast lovers.” plum5311

  1. The next book is Game-Day Fan Fare: Over 240 recipes, plus tips and inspiration to make sure your game-day celebration is a home run! (Everyday Cookbook Collection)

According to the author, Gooseberry Patch, the book starts with filling brunches like Goal-Line Sausage Casserole, Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes and Pumpkin-Caramel Doughnut Holes. The author temps us to whip up some Slow-Cooker Buffalo Chicken Nachos, Pepperoni Bread and Beer-Battered Fried Veggies just before kick-off to keep them cheering for more. You will agree with the author that everyone will love a Spicy Italian Sausage Sub to go with their big, steamy bowl of White Chicken Chili.

Here are the reviews:

“I like this cookbook very much. It has excellent recipes to serve to a bunch of football fans as well as to serve to family. I ordered 2 by mistake so I gave the extra copy to a young granddaughter who was looking for recipes to serve to her friends. She was thrilled with it. I love, love, love Gooseberry Patch cookbooks. They fit my preference very well. Thanks Amazon for bringing so many of them to me at great prices.” Dilemma

“Love this recipe cookbook and tips for tailgate, picnic, and summertime parties. Easy to follow recipes enjoy planning events from the ideas given. Glad I ordered this one.” B. Jonas

“Another exceptional book from Gooseberry patch. This book is as much fun to read as it is to use. All recipes are clearly written and directions are easy to follow. This would make a great gift for sports fans and foodies!” Rose

  1. Favorite Recipes: Game Day Paperback – April 9, 2012

This book is written by two authors, Patti Fredericksen Colt and Tiffany Aller.

From the Back Cover: Taste the lusciousness of bacon slow cooking with parmesan cheese and imbuing a club cracker with more flavor than you can imagine. Grab your favorite bag of corn chips and dip into flavorful and easy-to-home-make salsa, pico de gallo and guacamole. Learn how to make a barbeque sauce that you can use for some many other recipes.

Treat your game day guests to a party on the big screen AND in their plates. You won’t want to miss these recipes!

Here’s what customers are saying:

“What I liked most about this book is that all courses are covered. There are appetizers, soups & salads, sauces & dips, side dishes, main courses and of course, desserts. Instead of bringing the same old thing to the party, this book actually gives you a ton of cool recipes that really stand out. I bought this book because we do a lot of potluck tailgating during baseball and football season. During baseball season this year, we brought a different recipe from this book to each game. We got tons of compliments every time…the day after the game we would get emails and phone calls asking for the recipe. I guess that’s the true judge of whether or not your recipe is good. My favs are the boneless Buffalo wings, the worth a damn spareribs and the BLT salad…and the kids (and adults) absolutely LOVE the mudd dessert.” B. Matthews

“I got this book yesterday and I can already say “WOW!” The directions are clear, specific, and detailed, and the recipes seem to have been designed with busy families in mind. I tried the Buttermilk Southern Fried Chicken and Sweet Potato Fries yesterday. I have to eat gluten-free, and the fried chicken batter was a cinch to modify using the measurements given. Melt-in-your-mouth delicious, without being labor intensive or difficult to prepare- which is key when you’re getting ready for game night! It’s hard getting my kids to eat, but they love the recipes already. Today I’m making the buffalo chicken wings and they already smell amazing. This is a great recipe collection to have handy if you’ve had a long day at work and need something to feed an impatient family fast! I can’t wait to try the bacon chicken bites…” Ariana R.

  1. Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill Cookbook: Explosive Flavors from the Southwestern Kitchen Hardcover – Illustrated, October 16, 2007

In this recipe book, Flay includes the following:

– Grilled Asparagus and Goat Cheese Quesadillas with Tomato Jam and Cilantro Yogurt

– Queso Fundido with Roasted Poblano Vinaigrette

– Sweet Potato and Roasted Plantain Soup with Smoked Chile Crema

– Grilled Shrimp Brushed with Smoked Chile Butter and Tomatillo Salsa

– Seared Tuna Tostado with Black Bean Mango Salsa

– Coffee-Rubbed Filets Mignons with Ancho-Mushroom Sauce

– Spicy Coconut Tapioca with Mango and Blackberries

Flay describes his recipes as smoky, earthy, fruity, and spicy.

Here’s what customers are saying:

“This is one of my new favorites. The results have been extremely good. Some recipes are relatively fast to make while the super tasty duck taco recipe involves making 3 different sauces. However, once some of the sauces are made, they can be frozen and used in other recipes shortening the cooking time. Some of the green sauces work really well on salads. The ingredients are authentic and readily available in my home town of Houston. The use of blue cornmeal in pancakes give a great text and flavor boost along with visual appeal. The green pea soup green chili soup is excellent, but it appears that the mint-cumin crema calls for way too much cumin, especially compared to other version of the cumin crema in the book. Although some recipes take some effort, the results are worth and will impress your dinner guests. I’m working my way through the various recipes.” Patrick P. Davis

“Having been a customer at the Mesa Grill, I was anxious to read the book and see if I could do some of the food at home. Each recipe has a small note written by the author giving some background or suggestion about it. Each of the dishes have detailed and easy to follow instructions so anyone can prepare them and have it come out like they should. The only problem someone might have is if they do not have access to some ingredients in their local area, but a creative cook can substitute. A VERY GOOD BOOK, WELL WRITTEN.” J. Mckeown

  1. I’m sorry if my question is a little unrelated but in your experience, how is the kindle battery life and does it need to be charged as often as you would an iPad or apple device? I was going to order one for Christmas but didn’t because I still had quite a bit of book reading to get through, but I like how I can take everything with me and it being so compact. I just prefer lugging books around because they don’t run out of batteries especially late at night but I am considering getting a kindle now. Is there a particular one you recommend? Thank you

    1. Hi Will,

      Thank you for your comments. The batter life can last for for weeks (not hours) provided you do not have WiFi continuously on. Also when adding books to your device, it causes it to do the background process of indexing that book – which is a power hog. Once all of the indexing is done, your battery life will be longer. All the best.

  2. Thank you for sharing these recipes/cook books that are on Kindle. I have not tried any of the recipes listed on here, but I’m planning on it! I do not have a Kindle, but I can definitely see how easy it would be to plan a meal with one. Since I am not familiar with Kindle, approximately how many books can you load to it? Thank you.

    1. Hi Misty, Thank you for stopping by here. Yes, getting these recipe books on the Kindle is so easy and helpful when planning a meal. You can download about 3000 books. It also depends on the size of the book. and the Kindle version. I advise that you should not have more than 500 books as this can slowdown the device. All the best!

  3. Hi, Rodney!
    Thank you for a great work done for us, the readers of your website with your selection of recipe books! I wanted to buy the first book you listed, but I had to copy the title and go to Amazon for finding it. It would be more helpful if you could put some links for anyone interested.

  4. I think this is a great popular topic article. I am sure you will get many hits during football season. My team is and always will be the Crimson Tide of my alma mater. Roll Tide! The Slow-Cooker Buffalo Chicken Nachos mentioned for the first book sound delicious, and I may have to buy the book for my husband who loves to cook (and also love the Crimson Tide).

    I think this article could use some visuals to spice it up. Maybe add a bigger picture of the cover or author. Maybe you could add some pictures of the dishes.

    Do you have a personal favorite of the 5 cookbooks?


    1. Hi Erin, Thank you for stopping by. Good to know that you are fan of Crimson Tide. I know your husband will enjoy this recipe book. I must say that I like the Slow-Cooker Buffalo Chicken. All the best.

  5. Hi,
    I have been thinking about getting a kindle for some time, because they are cheap. I was thinking about using the kindle for cooking and stumped upon your recipe reviews. All the recipecollections you are recommended here sounds wonderful, and it makes me want to invest in that kindle finally.
    Can you share your experience with ‘Kindle Cooking’, does it respond well even with a bit of grease on your fingers, is there a model you can recommend?
    Thank you

    1. Hi Sylvester, Thank you for your comments. I try to keep my greasy fingers away from the screen when cooking. If some grease do get onto the screen I clean it with a microfiber cloth. You can dampen it with a little bit of water if you want but you don’t need to. Also eyeglass cleaning cloth works. All the best!

  7. Hi Rodney,
    This was a great summary – I am a fiend for recipe books – on the kindle and in the book store! In fact I usually find there is too much choice, so your summary of 5 is perfect! I liked the sound of the Game Day Fan Fare the best – the recipes sound delicious and definitely contains things we would like as a family.
    Thanks for the reviews!

    1. Hi Mara,

      Thank you for your comments. I agree with you that there are so many choices. Glad to hear that you use the Kindle to access these recipes. All the best!

  8. The site is great! its simple and the picture in the main page drew my attention. Looks appetizing! The recipe seems simple enough that you want to buy the book to see more recipes. The description is to the point. Great theme on all the advertisement of all kindle in amazon website.

  9. Hi Rodney

    I remember watching football with my kids. They are all grown up and have left home now. My kids made sure that we had the crisps and sweets and juice and of course the pizza was a must. You have great recipes for watching American Football. Those Football helmets look ideal to keep snacks and dips. I can just imagine a group of adults watching their favourite team with their very own snack helmets

    1. Hi Richard, Great memories with your kids. Yes, snacks and favorite snack helmets will make for a great experience. Thanks for your comments. All the best.
