Of all the cookbooks that have entered the house in 2013, Breakfast for Dinner by Lindsay Landis & Taylor Hackbarth is my favorite. Oldest Daughter picked up the book, looked at me and asked, "We are going to eat this, right?" She is the only one of my children who does not cook, but she is an adventurous eater. I think the thing that has kept her from the stove for so long is that she has a house full of people who like to cook and have been happy to feed her. She heads off for a stint in the Peace Corps in a couple of months were she will have to cook. I hope she has a good teacher.
"Everyone runs around trying to find a place where they still serve breakfast because eating breakfast, even is it's 5 o'clock in the afternoon, is a sign that the day has just begun and good things can still happen."-Jonathan Goldstein
Breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day and this book takes all the flavors you love about breakfast and gussies them up for the dinner table.
Habanero-cheddar Bread Pudding
Breakfast Sausage Ravioli
Chicken & Biscuit Waffles
Greek Baked Eggs
Bacon Fried Rice
The list goes on and on. SO much goodness. SO much. We have tried Bacon Fired Rice (twice), and Greek Baked Eggs, both were delicious.
A nice hardback book with an embossed cover, loads of photos, helpful ideas, and darn good recipes. The recipes are well written, easy to follow, and do not include hard to find ingredients. Breakfast for Dinner is likely to become one of those books that is pulled off the shelf on a regular basis, full of recipes that were brand new the first time you read the book and then became family favorites.
Excuse me while I get back into the kitchen.
***I was sent this book by the publisher or their PR firm with the hope that I would write a review for the blog. No money changed hands and my opinions are my own.
