Almost everyone keeps eggs in the refrigerator at all times; they come in handy for baking, as well as hundreds of dishes. Lisa Steele, a popular blogger is an expert on egg dishes, and her cookbook, The Fresh Eggs Daily Cookbook: Over 100 Fabulous Recipes to Use Eggs in Unexpected Ways includes dozens of ideas to use them. Since eggs are fairly cheap and especially versatile, something can always be made quickly as long as they are on hand.

This book teaches us everything we ever wanted to know about eggs (an even stuff we didn’t want to know), from raising the chickens all the way through to gathering the eggs and cooking with them. It covers basic techniques such as cracking eggs, separating eggs, storing eggs, as well as basic cooking techniques such as hard and soft boiled, fried, poached, etc. It includes plenty of excellent breakfast and brunch dishes as well as omelets, casseroles, eggy dishes like French toast, quiches, soufflés, frittatas, and sandwiches. Eggy breads like popovers contain lots of eggs, and so do muffins and pancakes, so they are included in this book. Steele doesn’t include plain old boring egg dishes; instead she adds innovative toppings and fillings to make the dishes very tempting. There are soups, salads, appetizers, pasta (homemade pasta includes lots of eggs), and even the English classic Toad in the Hole. Desserts include eggy cakes, cheesecakes, pies, cookies, pastries, puddings, and cobblers.

There are plenty of beautiful photographs throughout, from chickens to types of eggs, to many of the finished dishes. It’s hard to look at this cookbook without whipping up something in your kitchen.

You can’t go wrong with this excellent cookbook. It has become a new favorite and there are enough appealing recipes it will be used almost daily. Highly recommended.
