I was a bit hesitant about a cookbook with recipes from ballplayers, but Diamond Dishes is delight. With fabulous photos by EJ Camp of the world's best ballplayers at home in their kitchens, it can be a coffee table book or an everyday reference for great all American cooking. The recipes are varied and most look relatively easy. I think it is a great house gift for a guy or a gal. You don't have know the player stats to enjoy the fabulous pictures of these hunky guys relaxing at home!

This book has a lot of good recipes and I would suggest it. The only funny thing is that (at least my copy), the book was printed upside down and backwards.

Bought this for a friend's 5th grade nephew who loves baseball and is handy in the kitchen. Beautifully done book. I enjoyed reading the commentary and copied some of the recipes. Well thought out and personal.

For those of us who love cooking, this presentation of recipes and player's stories make for a perfect marriage. The dishes offer a variety for every taste, from popular American fare to recipes from the players' homelands. The link between players' favorite dishes and their childhoods and experiences reminds me that this is what life is about...creating memories that last a lifetime and play out in everything we do...cooking for our families, hobbies and activities in which we engage, and more...an awesome book, beautifully presented, for anyone who loves good food and sports!

After seeing Julie on Martha Stewart last week, I was inspired to go out and get the book. She really has a great charisma about her that will make anyone fall in love with her personality. The book is a great way to introduce children, and others to start working in the kitchen. It gives a new view on cooking and makes it a "cool" thing to do. The book has a wide range of recipes from salads, to steaks, to desserts. There is something in there for everyone to enjoy. I would recommend this book to any one of my friends, I think it's a great learning experience and defiantly worth the experience. Not to mention it gives you a story for each player as well on why they love the dish. A cook book with a story line, it really is just all around a good time for the family to enjoy. I highly recommend!

I'm not usually one to buy cookbooks, but I really enjoyed this book. It was fun getting an inside look at the way star players live (and eat). Along with recipes from many of baseball's stars, the author includes short profiles of each player and their eating habits. Apparently, some of baseball's best players can also cook pretty well too. Who knew? It's especially interesting to see the way they eat. Most seem to care a great deal about nutrition; others not so much. (For a guy who's thrown two no-hitters, Roy Halladay seems to eat a lot of ice cream!) Like most ballplayers, many also seem really superstitious about what they eat as well. While no one here is eating chicken before every game like Wade Boggs used to, a lot of players seem pretty wedded to their routines.

There are a lot of tasty recipes included, several from each player. I tried Dustin Pedroia's pasta primavera, and it was delicious. I wouldn't mind trying Joe Mauer's cheesecake recipe too. As a Red Sox fan, I liked getting to know more about Pedroia and newcomer Adrian Gonzaelez. Chances are, some of the best players from your favorite team are featured here too.

It's hard to believe that something this great looking is also extremely practical! This book has clever recipes and interesting stories about the players. So, I've had a wonderful time thumbing through the cookbook and earmarking recipes to try. Cabrera's Shrimp and Saffron Risotto looks terrific and easy to do. My teenage girls, of course, were particularly excited about A-Rod's Baked Kale chips . . . I live in the south and this is the perfect hostess gift!!! It's been such a big hit with all of my friends. Well done!

Wow!! My son's favorite player (David Wright) and favorite meal (chicken parm) together in one book. My son really enjoyed reading the interesting backgrounds of these great players and even picked out some new recipes for me to make. (Thanks for having simple ingredients in the recipes) A great book for the entire family.
