Diner's Drive-Ins and Dives: What I Watch When I'm Not Reading

When I am not reading, I like to turn on the TV and head on over to the Food Network Channel. There I find one of my favorite shows: Diners, Drive-ins and Dives hosted by Guy Fieri. Not only is the show yummy to watch, but I love Guy's humor. 

About the Show

Diners, Drive-ins and Dives are popular again thanks to faithful baby boomers, a slew of younger fans and a whole new generation of owners. Join Guy Fieri as he visits classic "greasy spoon" spots, from a roadside shack in Tarpley, Texas to a Las Vegas sports bar with stellar stromboli.

I love to see all of the interesting places out there serving yummy and unique food. He has also visited Utah several times. My only problem now, is that I have started changing my eating habits so all I can do is drool. This still doesn't take the enjoyment away from me while watching Guy talk to the various cooks/chefs, and watch him eat the great food. You can also go to the Food Network Channel and find many of the recipes shown on the show. Also, if you have never seen this show, you can watch several videos of DDD...triple "D" as Guys calls his show. 

I also found a blog that highlights Triple D. They lists everything there such as the places Guy has visited and also list all of the recipes.

If you go to Guy's website there is a lot of info about this fun loving man, who was once the winner of, "The Next Food Network Star". I remember liking him the moment I saw him. When he won the contest, I knew that nothing would stop him. You really must go read his Bio because he is an amazing man!

Now, you don't think I would blog here without telling you about Guy's books did you? He has three books and several DVD's from all of his past shows.

An All-American Road Trip...with Recipes! This book follows Guy's hot-rod trips around the country, mapping out the best places and turning local favorites into national wonders.

DINERS, DRIVE-INS, AND DIVES: An All-American Road Trip ...with Recipes by Guy Fieri, Ann Volkwein

All of Guy's books can be purchased at his website and I would also check them out at 

Last of all, here is one of Guy's recipes found on his website. Enjoy!
