Big Bad Breakfast
I was super excited to get my hands on John Currence's latest book "Big Bad Breakfast." Breakfast is the one meal that I struggle the most with because I never know what to make so I end up eating the same thing over and over again. I was really hoping that this book would offer an array of healthy and delicious recipes. The recipes and pictures are definitely good, and some of the recipes are healthier than others. This is a serious cookbook jammed pack full of scrumptious recipes, all dedicated to the first and most important meal of the day.
The cookbook breaks down as follows: The Welcome Basket; The Incredible, Edible, Omnipresent Egg; Omelets and Frittatas; Pancakes, Waffles, Crepes; BFD: Breakfast for Dinner; Cereals, Grains, and Oher Pseudo-Virtuous Things; Breakfast Sandwiches; Sides, Condiments, Meats, and Extras; and Eye-Openers (Drinks).
I love that it includes a Homemade Frosted Cornflakes recipe! I don't really eat commercial cereal anymore (though I am always so tempted because it's quick and convenient) because it is heavily processed and all cereal goes through a process called extrusion which is toxic. I love how the cornflakes recipe is so easy and I just replace the sugar with honey since it's healthier.
I cannot wait to try the Low Country Cast-Iron Skillet Scramble, French-Style Omelet Master Recipe, and the Homemade Pop-Tarts recipes. There are a lot of yummy recipes in this one book that I will be turning to for a while.
