This book among my favorite types of cookbooks to own, as it gives you easy access to a great number of recipes on a single subject. This is even better than books on fish or red meat or potatoes or chicken, as it covers a wide range of recipes for all flavors available to a single meal. And, Ms. Cunningham does touch all the bases. Her chapter titles are:
Yeast breads such as American White Bread.
Toasts, French Toast, and Breakfast Sandwiches.
Quick Breads such as biscuits, cornbread, scones, muffins, and fruit breads.
Cereals, hot such as oatmeal and corn, such as granola
Doughnuts and Fritters
Griddling, as in pancakes and waffles
Eggs, as in boiled, omelets, frittatas, souffles, baked, scrambled, poached, fried, and so on
Fruit Fixing, as in applesauce, poached apples, stuffed pears, fresh juices, rhubarb, pineapple, mango, etc.Read more ›
Cunnigham also edited the new edition of Fannie Farmer's time-honored cookbook; she is a thoughtful writer and has a keen sense of how food fits into our modern lives. Her recipes are varied and you're sure to find something that you've never tried before but might want to.
A real pleasure and the 1 book you might want to have in your cookbook collection for breakfast.
PS - The recipe for Cream Biscuits (attributed to James Beard is a real winner and unbelievably simple to make.
Deb Perleman (author of "The Smitten Kitchen") encouraged her blog readers as follows: "Do you know anyone who just got engaged/about to get married/just moved into their own apartment/thinks they want to start cooking/trying to drop a hint to their significant other that certain meal shifts are up for grabs? What better place to start than at the top of the day, and this is the book everyone — yes, girls and boys — needs on their shelves. It covers all bases. It makes people happy. These are respectable cooking goals".
On the above advice I purchased "The Breakfast Book" and am so glad that I did. This is a cookbook that is entirely devoted to breakfast. There are 288 recipes from the best ever sticky buns to scones, coddled eggs, pancakes, and muffins galore. Not everyone goes out for fast food at breakfast and if your life is rushed Monday through Friday, this is the perfect book for weekend Brunches.
This summer my husband and I have really started entertaining for Brunches. They are creative, relaxing, and easy if you are organized. It's different and unusual in the summer. You still have lots of time left in the day after Brunch for FUN . Tabletops, dishes & silverware are simpler and more classic.
