Morning FoodBreakfasts, Brunches & More for Savoringthe Best Part of the Dayby Margaret S. Fox & John B. BearI have always loved breakfast so I found this awesome and delicious cookbook to be totally made to order. The pictures are great, the food is yummy, and I can mix and match to get some unique tastes that will keep me getting up early for a long time to come. The thought of a mug of "Mom's Cocoa Syrup", then some "China Moon Shanghai Rice", topped off with a "Banana-Pecan Pineapple Ice Cream Waffle Sundae", just sends my taste buds to the moon. The ingredients are well presented, the directions are clear and simple and I had no trouble following them at all. I would recommend this heavenly treasure to anyone who loves food, especially breakfast. It would also make a very thoughtful gift for someone on your holiday list.Love & Light,Riki Frahmann
