    This book offered so much information on eggs as well as chickens – more than I would have expected from a cookbook.  The recipes were good, but pictures would have significantly enhanced the book.  I do look forward to trying some of the more unique recipes featured in the book.

    Eye Opening Look at the Eggs I Buy
    This book really explains everything about the different egg options in the store/farmers market.
    I love that I now have the ability to make the best and healthiest choice for my family.
    The stores and commercials are really misleading about what the different options of eggs are
    and I feel like I really understand the difference thanks to this book. I also understand a lot more
    about how to properly store and cook my eggs too. This book is a great resource and very easy to
    read.

    This is so much more than a cookbook! I was looking for some easy recipes and new ways to cook with the eggs that I always seem to have on hand and this book delivered. There are so many great recipes that I can’t wait to try. An added bonus was all the information on raising chickens and about eggs in general.

    How many of us understand the meaning of the different labels on the egg cartons in the grocery stores? The Egg Cookbook certainly demystifies those labels as well as provide a wealth of information which is helpful for someone who may just want to make a delicious meal using eggs or someone who wants to go a step further to set up his/her own backyard coop.

    The egg cookbook was a very informative book! The information was very thorough and also surprisingly entertaining. The categories were also very helpful. Topics covered ranged from egg recipes, how to properly cook with eggs, and valuable information how raising types of chicken breeds such as: Amber Star Hybrids, Brahmas, Jaerhons, Plymouth Rocks, and even the Yokohamas. It also explained how chickens and eggs are prepared when they bear certain food labels such as pastured and organic. There is also a wonderful resources section about raising chickens, which contains books, periodicals, websites and blogs. However, there were a few things I did not like about it. The beverage section was not as full as some of the other sections. Only different types of eggnog and smoothies were mentioned when there are definitely more drinks that are prepared with eggs, such as cocktails.
    But this is a good reference book for some tasty egg recipes and a great resource on raising chickens. Definitely would recommend.

    Eggceptional! This egg cookbook really covers everything - what kind of chicken to buy, what to do with your chickens once you have them, and how to know what kinds of eggs you're getting if you buy them from the store. What does it mean if the eggs are labeled organic, free range, or omega-3 enhanced? How do you know if your eggs are still fresh, if they are cooked or hard boiled, or if they are fertilized? What kinds of eggs are the most nutritious? In addition to over 100 easy egg recipes, the book answers each of these questions and more.

    Before reading this book, I am sure I was like most people and thought I knew all there was to know about eggs. Boy, was I wrong! It never occurred to me that the taste of the egg is affected by what the chicken eats. Or that the color of the chicken defines what color the eggs will be. This was full of great information and delicious recipes that I want to try. Maybe it will even make me like eggs!

    I love eggs. But egg breakfasts are always the same. Until now. With all these amazingly creative and delicious egg recipes, I set my alarm clock just to get up in the morning to start cooking. Seriously. I mean, who'd have known how much fun you can have with eggs? Just grab them from the fridge, open up The Egg Cookbook, grab a few other ingredients (which you probably already have), and start making breakfast like a Michelin-starred chef!

    This book will show that you probably don’t know as much about eggs (or chickens) as you think. It’s packed with important information, such as correctly storing eggs, the truth about cholesterol in eggs, even how to build your own chicken coop. The recipes – breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, desserts and beverages - are easy, delicious and demonstrate why eggs are a stable worldwide.
