Make your kitchen more bearable to burly men with big appetites!

Loosen your belts and make room for seconds! PJ Gray, author of Bear Cookin’: The Original Guide to Bear Comfort Foods, is back with More Bear Cookin’: Bigger and Better, serving up another helping of mouth-watering recipes, handy kitchen tips, and tributes to comfort foods. Seasoned with humor and served with a side order of fun, this flavorful collection combines favorites like “Use Your Tool” and “More Bearable Meal Suggestions” from the original book with new food and information features like “Did Ya Know?” and “Kitchen Tips.” The book also includes a glossary of cooking technology, recipe measures and equivalencies, and emergency ingredient substitutions.

Home-style cooking holds a special place in the hearts (and bellies) of bears, who can take comfort in the hearty fare found in the personal and family recipes presented in More Bear Cookin’: Bigger and Better. Find everything you need for three squares a day—and all snacks in between—in sections like “Lip Smackin’ Snackin’,” “Woofy Breakfast,” “More Hearty Sides,” “Come-and-Get-It Entrees,” “More Bear Meat,” and “Way Beyond the Honey Pot.” The book offers practical tips about food preparation, cooking and storage, how to cook a holiday turkey, how to work with sugar, syrup, and honey, and refrigerator care and maintenance. More Bear Cookin’ also pays loving tribute to the magical powers of peanut butter, eggs, potatoes, cheese, mayonnaise, meat broth, and chocolate, dishes on “Diner Talk” (waiter/waitress lingo), and “Leftover Life” (general rules for food safety), and gives up “The Skinny on Fat” (cooking with fats and oils).

More Bear Cookin’: Bigger and Better includes such rich, satisfying recipes as:

  • Bachelor Bear Toast
  • White Trash Stash
  • Deep-Fried Twinkies
  • Stay For Breakfast
