I love the Food Network. I watch several favourite shows even when they are repeats. Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives is one of them.
My oldest son is also a fan of the show and he loaned me this book to read. I had a riot reading it. I loved all the stops on his All-American Road Trip and even recognized some of them from the show. There were recipes for each diner after their story but I have to say there aren't too many I would actually make. Not that they don't sound great, but they tend to have a ton of ingredients and be fried. Great for a diner, not so great for my waistline.
I am definitely going to make the Chunky Monkey Pancakes on page 108 . . . how can anyone resist pancakes full of chocolate chips and walnuts, wrapped around bananas, and covered in whipped cream. I'll let you know how it turns out . . . LOL . . .
