A charming, one-of-a-kind cookbook devoted exclusively to breakfast—that most American of meals which is enjoying a comeback all over the country. Here Marion Cunningham celebrates the simple pleasures of a good breakfast with 288 irresistible recipes for traditional favorites—from scones and sticky buns and popovers and hash browns to all kinds of eggs and pancakes and muffins—as well new treats. Her Great Coffee Cake lends itself to a variety of spicy, crunchy combinations; her Raw Fresh Fruit Jams can be made in just thirty minutes (with no cooking!); and her Oatmeal Bran and Mother’s Cookies are perfect for when breakfast is on the run. And for more leisurely moments and special occasions, Cunningham includes forty breakfast menus guaranteed to make the first meal of the day the best.

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.
