The Good Egg: More than 200 Fresh Approaches from Breakfast to DessertWho knew there were so many different ways to cook an egg? This is more than a recipe book. Each chapter begins with a series of egg facts and explanations, beginning with the cholesterol controversy, and moving us into the anatomy of an egg. Then, there are the instructions. The perfect scrambled egg; the perfect boiled egg, etc. But, above all, there are the innovative ways in which the egg is served up as the centerpiece of the meal. I love books with pictures -- and there are none in this book. But, they were not missed. The book is so well written that it is totally engaging from page 1 through all 200+ recipes. What Michel Roux has done for the European egg, Marie Simmons has matched with eggs in the American kitchen. Whether you are a new cook or a kitchen diva, this book should be among your repertoire of well read and worn reference material. A Must Have!

I LOVE this cookbook.

It is full of tips, stories, and quotes that make it an easy read and excellent instruction manual. Even if you've made eggs a thousand times over, or are a novice like me, it's great to have some definite "perfect" cooking techniques to get your eggs right EVERY TIME.

The recipes cover every meal and snack imaginable and are wonderful for making a well-prepared meal, snacks for a party, or when you only have a few minutes to whip something up yourself.

I consider this an essential cookbook for any level cook.

This book is a wonderful source for people who love eggs like we do! Our hens provide, on average, 20 eggs a day. We're always looking for new ways to cook and eat eggs. No need to search for any egg recipe as the book captures nearly every possible egg recipe out there. Ingredients are on the shelf and the recipes are easy to follow. I love cookbooks with pictures - and was sorry to see that there weren't any in this addition. The Good Egg is a must have for anyone raising chickens and looking for ways to save money on perfect egg dishes. Bravo Marie!

Eggs get short shrift in cookbooks and dining. They are healthy, tasty, economical and lend themselves to breakfast, lunch, dinner and entertaining. This is a great book with a wide variety of recipes, fundamental techniques, nice variations and easy to follow recipes. Each of the recipes I've tried has turned out well. And because she explains the fundamental technique for a frittata or quiche (for example) I could now put one together without even referring to the book.

As the owner of a new flock of chickens, I found myself inundated with eggs. One can eat only so many omelets, I assure you. I needed different ideas, lots of them. This book provided me with just that, and instead of the family crying "Eggs AGAIN???", they're asking "What's next?".
There were many choices for egg-focused cookbooks, and I'm glad I chose this one.

Since we raise chickens and get about 2 dozen eggs a week, this book has been great! There are only SO many scrambled eggs you can stand... Includes lots of tips and hints in addition to the many recipes.

Just bought 6 laying hens and needed something to do with all the eggs that we have now coming out our ears. This is a perfect book if there is anything you want to know about eggs. An encyclopedia of information like--NEVER boil a hard boiled egg. whodathunkit...
