Cookbook Review - Gale Gand's Brunch!

I was recently asked if I would review a new cookbook from Gale Gand. The book arrived from the publisher on Wednesday. I poured over it that very night. Everything looked delicious. I was drawn to the photo on the cover for the baked eggs in ham cups, but felt sure that someone else would select that recipe to try.

Then a few pages later I looked at the glossy photo of asparagus with poached eggs and parmesan.

I invited a few friends over for a sunday brunch. The recipe is very easy to follow, calling for ingredients that I readily had on hand. While I made a few modifications for my own cooking style (such as using an asparagus pot to cook the asparagus rather than the sauce pan) the food turned out delicious. I presented the dish on a platter and everyone served themselves.

All of my guests proclaimed the meal to be fantastic, including my best friends nine year old son. I served it with the bacon scallion scones from another recipe in the book.

I can't say enough good things about this book. I am anxious to try all of the other recipes and would like to thank Stephanie at Dispensing Happiness for asking me to be a part of this!
