    This cookbook offers over 100 delicious recipes for eggs that go

    This cookbook offers over 100 delicious recipes for eggs that go beyond scrambled eggs for breakfast, although there are recipes for those, too. Traditional recipes are included for soft-boiled and poached eggs, French toast, eggs Florentine, huevo rancheros, deviled eggs, eggnog, and homemade mayonnaise. Beyond the breakfast fare, there are also recipes for appetizers, main dishes, casseroles, soups and stews, and desserts. This book is also a brief tutorial on chicken breeds and tips for raising chickens based on the author's own experiences.

    Chapters include Classics, Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner, Egg-Cess, Vegetarian Dishes, and Desserts. The Baked Eggs in Tomatoes were great and made a nice change for lunch. Other recipes I hope to try soon are Gruyere & Broccoli Quiche, MJ's Egg Casserole, and Friday Night Frittata.

    The many color photographs are a plus although I would have liked to see more photos of the actual recipes rather than baskets of eggs, chickens, chicken figurines, and the author's family. It isn't that those photos aren't charming, but it is a cookbook so seeing more of the recipes would be preferable. The other downside with this book is that it doesn't lay open when trying to use a recipe. It would be perfect if it was spiral-bound.

    Those two issues aside, I do like this cookbook and plan on trying many of the recipes.

    I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.

    My 10 year old son has 6 chickens and a friend gave this book to

    My 10 year old son has 6 chickens and a friend gave this book to him as a gift because he is always looking for ways to use the fresh eggs. This is so much more than your typical cookbook. It has great recipes but also includes interesting stories about the author's chickens, tidbits and tips on fresh eggs and raising chickens, etc. I sat down with the book and was going to quickly flip through it. Two hours later, I was still reading the book because it is so engaging. I highly recommend this book if you raise chickens because you will be able to relate to so many of the quotes and stories. However, I think people without chickens will also find this book fascinating.
