Breakfast for Dinner by Lindsay Landis and Taylor Hackbarth

Breakfast for dinner - who doesn't love to switch it up from time to time? Pancakes, eggs and bacon for dinner can make the meal feel fun and decadent.

The authors of the cookbook Breakfast for Dinner - Lindsay Landis and Taylor Hackbarth - have taken the concept and fancied it up. Why have bacon and eggs for dinner when you could have Breakfast Sausage Ravioli, or a burger topped with crispy potatos and a fried egg?

 This is one of the most fun and mouthwateringly delicious cookbooks I've ever got my hands on. Beautiful photos and inventive well written recipes make this a cookbook worth picking up.

I made 8 recipes to test this book -

Grapefruit Herb Sodas

Mini BLT Biscuits

Pita Bread


Loco Moco

Maple Glazed Pork Meatballs

Banana Bread Bundt Cake

Root Vegetable Latkes

First I have to say that all the recipes were great - they were all easy to follow and delicious.  I would and will make all of them again in a heartbeat.  

There were 3 standouts I must mention - the pita bread - super easy and delicious.  Within 2 hours of starting we were eating fresh out of the oven bread.  The Shakshuka - eggs poached in a spicy tomato sauce was Scott's handsdown favorite.  Mine was the Loco Moco.  Tasting a billion times better (to me) than the dish we tried in Hawaii, once the components of the meal are assembled, it is spectacular.

Thank you, Random House!
