Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This classic has recipes we can’t live without.” —Gourmet
 
“Probably the most-abused cookbook in my kitchen. . . . Marion is a breakfast genius, stripping away the accretions and encrustations recipes tend to pick up over the years, and reducing them to their delicious basics.” —Jonathan Gold, LA Weekly
 
“I love this woman, and I love this book. Marion did for breakfast what Julia did for French cooking—she made it both interesting and approachable.” —Christopher Kimball, founder of America’s Test Kitchen
 
“Thanks to Marion Cunningham for bringing back breakfast. . . . The Breakfast Book contains all of the wonderful food that I enjoyed when growing up.” —Edna Lewis, author of The Taste of Country Cooking

I received this years ago as a gift and it has been the most used cookbook in my kitchen. My children have learned to prepare the best breakfasts for themselves and their very lucky parents. The cinnamon butter puffs are the most wonderful treat and the pancake recipes (all of them) are better than anything from a box.

The wonderful recipes in this collection continue to inspire me. Includes old favorites as well as new ideas - meats, fruits, eggs, breads, even cookies. The food is so good, you'll want to eat it all day long!

I bought this book because it was highly recommended and now I know why. It's filled with delicious recipes and great hints. We're big breakfast eaters at our house so I knew this book would get a lot of use...and I was right.
