I am so pleased with Margaret Fox's new edition of her Morning Food book. I have used that book over many years and it is the source of my favorite dessert, Buttermilk Cinnamon Coffee Cake, a guaranteed hit with company. This is included in the new edition as well a wealth of new recipes. The book is delightful, with Margaret's comments on each page. The book is full of colors which enhance the enticing recipes. I can't wait to start cooking.

This book is wonderful! My husband and I love breakfast, and just when I was starting to get bored with fixing the regulars (bacon, eggs, pancakes, etc.) I found this book. Every recipe I've made so far has tasted wonderful! I love the little stories that go with each recipe, knowing the background of what you're cooking makes it more interesting and is fun to tell your guests while you're serving them. I just impressed my friends with the homemade Cinnamon Rolls and the Stinson Beach Blueberry Muffins. I highly recommend this book, whether you're planning on entertaining or just enjoy cooking for yourself!

I love this book! I found the recipes fantastic, easy to use, inspirational and requiring a variety of widely available ingredients in combinations that result in incredible and delicious dishes. I was motivated to use the recipes, and felt completely competent doing so! I am eternally grateful that Fox's definition of morning food includes black bean chili, blintzes, quesadillas and coffee cake! I'm not a morning person, but I love Morning Food. Fox's directions are easy to follow and her comments very funny. What a find! It will be a staple of my holiday gift giving.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful, yet surprisingly simple, breakfast cookbook. One would not want to peruse a lengthy tome at 8:00AM anyway, so this one fits the bill. I tried several recipes during the recent holidays and was pleased with all of them. Ms. Fox also reveals a subtle sense of humor within her instructions, making it a little more fun to cook for company while trying to wake up enough to read them correctly. I recommend this cookbook for all levels of expertise or lack thereof, as it is reliable and well-written. Ms. Fox braved a tourist destination restaurant for many years and still has something to give - amazing !

Margaret's very personal cookbook is a joy to read, not just to cook from. For a newly-minted breakfast lover (diabetes convinced me of the need for... and joys of breakfast) finding all these unique recipes has expanded my ideas of what breakfast can be. So far I've fallen in love with the Sunday pancake, Sausage stuffed baked apples, and Passed-its-prime fruit. And I've only had this cookbook since Christmas! Margaret, I'm in love with your stories, your wit, and the absolutely wonderful foods you've brought into my life.

Format: Paperback
You may think you know what's inside this book simply because it's about "breakfast food," but trust me, you don't. While "Morning Food," by Margaret Fox, does indeed contain many scrumptious recipes for traditional breakfast favorites - waffles, pancakes, muffins - each dish has been crafted into something especially unique and inviting. Hence you find yourself with delicious, easy-to-follow recipes for "Mocha Walnut Wonder Muffins," "Pumpkin & Ginger Pancakes" and "Cindy's Cherry Chocolate-Chip Scones," all delightful twists on old time faves. However, more than this, "Morning Food" suggests dishes that one may not usually associate with early, or even mid, morning meals. I certainly wouldn't have thought to serve "bun bun noodles with spicy peanut sauce" for the first meal of the day, but after taking a chance and following Fox's suggestion I now have a new take on the whole business of morning eating.

"Morning Food" is a beautifully presented, well-bound book with a generous number of photographs and helpful kitchen tips. Fox introduces you to the finer aspects of bread baking and discusses the history of schnapps (brandy distilled from fermented fruits) in approachable, friendly language. Her relaxed, comfortable style teaches you not to worry about mistakes and how to develop a repertoire of favorite dishes. Did those first few crepes not come out as hoped? No problem, freeze them then use the crepes later, cut into strips, as a garnish for soup. In every respect, Fox makes you feel like she's an old friend who has invited you into her kitchen, where she happily shares her hard-won kitchen wisdom.

is to pick a recipe from Margaret Fox's great new cookbook, "Morning Foods" and start cooking. She makes cooking uncomplicated and fun. Her stories add a history to every recipe. Most importantly her cookbooks give me the confidence to try new ingredients, new techniques and best of all everything turns out tasting great! I recommend it, as well as all her other books, for every cook at every level.

Format: Paperback
As a former patron of Cafe Beaujolais under Margaret Fox and an owner of the original book, I hoped the revised editon would be as good. It's even better with updated recipes, new ones, some lovely photos, and Margaret's same delightful sense of humor. Best of all the recipes are appropriate for all levels of cooking expertise and they really work.
