I have hundreds of cookbooks and I love breakfast as does my family. If I had to narrow down which cookbook I would keep as my go to for breakfast recipes this would be the one. The instructions are clear and concise, not hard to follow, so whether you are an experienced cook or novice, you can follow these recipes. The photos (which I always like in any cookbook, I want to know what it should look like when I am finished), are spectacular. You eat with your eyes and these pictures will inspire you to try your hand at the recipe offerings. I have made several of the recipes for my family, Eggs Blackstone (featured on the cover), Huevos Rancheros, Cinnamon Rolls, Apple Fritters, etc ... all of them turned out perfectly and all I had to do was follow the recipe (I always follow the recipe to the letter the first time before I tweak anything ... these didn't need any tweaking, it was that good). The cookbook is organized nicely into breakfast categories so if you are looking for egg dishes, sides, from the griddle, sweets, it is there for you and easy to find. The ingredients used aren't exotic, you should be able to find what you need in your local grocery store. Truly a treasure trove of recipes that will delight your palette and range from sophisicated to just fun !

Williams-Sonoma Breakfast Comforts by Rick Rodgers is the best breakfast cookbook I have ever purchased. Not only are the recipes amazing, all the photos in the book are equally inviting. The restaurant recipes are fantastic too. It makes me want to hurry out of my warm bed to whip up one of the featured breakfasts. I cannot say enough about how pleased I am with this book. It should be on the best sellers list, if not already!

Breakfast Comforts definitely lives up to the title. How scrumptious the recipes are (and the pictures, you'll salivate just looking at them). My husband and I are big breakfast fans, we'll eat it for dinner. I recommend the blueberry muffin recipe. Delicious! I bought this at Williams Sonoma retail store for full price and it was worth it, but it is discounted on Amazon so that is even better.

In theory I love a Big Breakfast, all those yummy, fried foods and yeast goods - in reality the fat/calorie load is too over the top for me to consider cooking breakfast more than a couple of times a year. Today was the perfect excuse, I host a family meal near my birthday every year and this year wanted to do breakfast - great chance for me to try out a range of recipes from my copy of Breakfast Comforts on my captive victims...

I love WS books, they have a beautiful photo for every recipe; nice, heavy quality paper that can handle the need to wipe up the odd spill. So, yep, just love, love them.

This book is broken up into the following chapters:

- from the griddle
- eggs, glorious eggs
- sweet treats
- savoury delights
- on the side
- drinks
- basic recipes
- index

There are a few restaurant featured recipes in each section.

Each recipe is formatted with bolded ingredient list running down left side of page, with step-by-step instructions on the remainder of the page. Most of the recipes have a short introduction, which personalises the recipe and is a feature I really like in a cookbook.

Recipes I had a go at:

Cinnamon Rolls (p.115): after reading the blurb on Hell's Kitchen, I decided that I would use the dough and cinnamon/sugar recipe from Pecan Caramel Rolls (p.116), but finished with the cream cheese icing (p.115). Though I have strayed from my basic sweet dough recipe a number of times over the years, this is the first time that I have found one that I prefer. Love it and will use it again. I did complete the second rising of the dough in the refrigerator overnight and they were beautifully risen and, after a little warming up, ready to bake this morning.

I love this cookbook! Ingredients are normal things you would have in the pantry or buy at the store, steps are easy to follow, pictures make everything look delicious! So far I have tried the potato pancakes, caramel rolls, applesauce, buttermilk pancakes, and waffles. Everything has been a "make it again" success. Highly recommend!

My husband and I love this cookbook! Breakfast this morning came out of the cookbook and it tasted like dessert. Easy recipes with great pictures that make you hungry just flipping through. I usually wait for cookbooks to be on sale, but I would buy this book again and again.
