Cons (at least for me): the recipes are very basic and if you've done some baking / cooking, you've seen 90% of these recipes (blueberry pancake, banana walnut muffins, french toast). Included in egg recipes are how to fry, poach, and scramble an egg. Not that I don't like these because I do LOVE breakfast food, it's that I already have most in my personal recipe files or already know how to make these items. There really isn't anything new or even a variation that makes a recipe more interesting if not unusual. This would be a good book for someone who is just learning their way around a kitchen.
There is information explaining the basic ingredients, equipment and gives hints, although not much is included about spices. There are simplified directions and ingredient lists. Conversion charts and weight equivalents and an index are included.
Many of the recipes have variations. For example, if you are in a routine of fixing French toast, there are 5 variations here.
All but the most experienced cooks can always use some help in ideas and this does give many. Who would have thought of bacon chocolate banana sandwiches, which are actually surprisingly good?
There are some omissions here. There is no information or warning that it is hard to peel a fresh egg that has been hard boiled, that it would be better to have eggs you had in your refrigerator for at least a few days. In the muffin cap recipe, there is no mention in the recipe that in order to make these you need a special pan. It just says oil a muffin pan, place paper liners and fill the liner to the top - that will definitely not get you a muffin cap but a big muffin. There was also a real lack of recipes for sticky buns, only 1 recipe with 4 variations.
We have really enjoyed some of the recipes in here: pound cake French toast, fried chicken and waffles, and the cream cheese drizzle.
It's a nice cookbook for some different breakfast ideas, as long as one is aware of its limitations.
Some of the recipes are just a variation and there was no need for an individual entry.
Tried several of the multigrain recipes, and they were kinda heavy.
There are better breakfast books out there. This one is rather pedestrian.
For my two cents, Tonia George's The Perfect Start to Your Day: Delicious Recipes for Breakfast and Brunch is a much better book and not by a celebrity author.
