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.

The Egg Cookbook is an easy to understand but thorough guide to not only preparing eggs in a variety of ways but also raising chickens in your back yard if you want the freshest eggs possible. Several breeds of chicken are described and a full list of additional books and sites on raising chickens is at the back.But the main attraction is the selection of great egg recipes for anytime meals and snacks and yummy desserts. A full description of egg gadgets and cookware is also provided.

If you loves eggs, but need new creative ways to serve them this recipe book is for you! The Egg Cookbook gives the reader a better understanding of eggs and their uses, and how to properly cook them. For instance, you have your basics that are quick and easy like the perfect scrambled eggs, a basic omelet, baked eggs, and so on. Then you have your recipes for sauces and dressings that need eggs like mayo and Caesar dressing. If that is not enough you also have recipes appetizers, snacks, soups, salads, advanced omelets, and baked egg dishes.

This is a great book. Not only for the recipes, but as a research tool for understanding the various types of eggs and breeds of chickens,  but how to raise chickens. The recipes are all inclusive from simple to difficult, and all looked delicious!!!

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.

It is a book any egg lover will refer to often or simply to browse for new and creative ideas and recipes.

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.

The book is great and answers so many different questions such as what the different types of eggs seen in grocery stores.  There are many recipes from breakfast to dessert that are offered in the book.  My family tried the spinach frittata which was delicious.  I’d suggest this book to anyone that uses eggs in recipes!

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!

Learn about eggs in a fun and grabbing way.  I never thought there would be so many ways to cook an egg.  I enjoyed learning about different omelets and ways to care for eggs.  Learning what chickens eat was helpful as well.

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!

The egg cookbook recipes were thoroughly explained and the preparations were easy to follow. The ingredients were specific and easy to find. What I like about this book is that it got alot of helpfull ideas on how to use eggs appropriately. It also gives you the idea on chicken farming which has alot of uses thus a verly low cost when it comes to expenses. It challenges you on how to incorporate more ideas and techniques in creating a fun and healthier lifestyle using eggs.

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.

This cookbook is a comprehensive guide for all your egg needs.  The book is split into a few sections, including how to choose your eggs, preparation of egg utensils, and last but not least, how to maintain a chicken coop.  You’ll learn not only how to be healthy with eggs, but how to be creative.  From the preparation tips to the recipes, I recommend this book a fun read for all.

Tons of great ideas for making fresh meals that you probably haven't thought of. Before I read this book, I could make scrambled eggs. That's it. Not even joking. Now I know how to make eggs in more ways than I ever thought possible. This book makes a great gift for anyone who loves to cook or anyone who wants to learn how.

This book was perfect! It starts with the differences between types of eggs (conventional, organic, vegetarian fed, etc). Since I’m a vegetarian this was important to me. The recipes range from the basics to paleo and vegetarian. This is a perfect book for anyone with a restricted diet like me. I got this book for free and I’m satisfied about that!!
