Hot on the (w)heels of John Youk's Big John's Speedway Grill, Race Day Grub is a cookbook that burns rubber. Skinner, wife of NASCAR star Mike Skinner, culls recipes from the NASCAR family: drivers, wives, technicians, etc., who work, live, and breathe this sport. The result is a smart, easy-to-handle cookbook for your everyday chef or grill master.
Skinner tells a fun tale of crashing in the kitchen-she had a major fiasco during Thanksgiving-and then launches into her assumed role entertaining guests on the road before and after races. Here she shows how this role helped her develop and find exciting recipes that don't require much time but are big on flavor. Life can be every bit as quick as a racetrack, so families in a hurry can sink their forks into "The Lazy Meat and Egg Bake" and still make it to work and school on time. With six chapters of nearly 90 recipes, this work is your everyman's and every woman's cookbook. Highly recommended for large public libraries.
