The Good Egg is just plain fun to read."

I have owned this book for a couple years now. My only trouble with it is that it's now getting worn out! I've relied on it heavily to create some pretty amazing dishes. The book is getting dog-eared and has stains and such.
Everything from the simple to the complicated, appetizers to desserts and more, are covered here with very clear and detailed instructions. This thick cookbook covers it all! It makes recipes and techniques I'd previously stayed away from seem very approachable and possible - not to mention delicious!
Spring is now coming and my chickens are starting to increase their egg production and I find myself pulling this book out once again to create some of my family's favorites. If you want new egg ideas, own chickens or have access to an abundance of eggs, love eggs, or just can appreciate a very well-done cookbook, this one is perfect!
Our very favorite recipe in the book at the moment is the Coconut Custard. The author recommends it warm or cold, but serve it cold! Trust me - serving it cold turns it from just a great dish, into something absolutely sublime.
There were many choices for egg-focused cookbooks, and I'm glad I chose this one.
