Joy the Baker is one of the first online bloggers that I started following. Her writing perfectly walks the narrow line of super bubbly and relatable best friend, usually without becoming too cute or too unlikely. This cookbook is all about "lazy day" food, mostly things you could eat for brunch. I'd only consider making things like the fried chicken waffle sandwiches or the wacky but fun birthday pancakes once in a great while for a group of friends, but there are also a ton of recipes I can see myself making anytime during the week - like the smoothie bowls, banana bread granola, green goddess sandwich, book club chicken salad, blackberry cobbler muffins, just to name a few.
Joy's recipes are accessible to the novice home cook, inspired enough to satisfy experienced cooks, and generally take only 10-60 minutes in the kitchen to complete. Her directions are easy to follow and most of the recipes are followed by a full-page color photo. Some of the recipe offerings are really basic, like how to fry a perfect egg or make a breakfast sandwich, which aren't recipes I'm especially enthusiastic about. However, there are also plenty of great, inspired recipe ideas in Over Easy that you aren't going to find in any other cookbook, like French toast breakfast burritos and muffaletta brunch salad.
So far, I've made the spinach and artichoke omelet wheels and the earl grey ricotta waffles. Both turned out well, so I expect I'll continue referring to Over Easy whenever I want to make something creative and delicious.
So what do you want with your cocktails or coffee or smoothie or juice? Easy, eggs. The gloriously inexpensive embryo boat that can be cooked in a seemingly infinite amount of ways. In Over Easy, Joy The Baker takes the time to show you how you've been making your eggs all wrong for your whole life. Then she gives you nearly 20 recipes for any occasion. Eggs are in right now. People are putting them on all kinds of things. Learn how to make them better and be a better person because of it.
Joy The Baker is, of course, a baker. She get's down in this book. How down? Well, I, unfortunately, am allergic to pecans. There is a recipe for pecan rolls in here that I would end my life for. No joke. You're asking yourself how I'd even know if I'm allergic. The answer is I am already in Heaven. We have Amazon in Heaven and copies of Over Easy.
I don't have enough characters unfortunately to articulate the greatness of the naps induced by the recipes in this book. The sandwiches, the salads, the sides that are arguably meals in themselves and the baked goods. Holy donuts, the baked goods.
As I see it, either wait in line for an hour or two to get the food that this book has at some over priced breakfast spot or follow the easy to understand and beautifully photographed recipes in Over Easy. Become a master of the days you don't have to do things on.
