Put an Egg on It: 70 Delicious Dishes That Deserve a Sunny Topping Reviews
This is a great book to skim for ideas, and it's beautifully photographed, but I wouldn't necessarily feel the need to own it. The recipes are somehow simultaneously basic and too vague, so if you're serious about your food, you're not going to find anything terribly unique, and if you're just starting out, I think you'd need more information about how technique. For example, there are a few ethnic recipes (e.g. kimchi fried rice) that seems kind of watered down for the Pacific Northwest palate, wanh wanh. Based on that recipe, I'd think this book would be good for beginners, but then you have a burger recipe that says "Grill the burger for 5 to 7 minutes on each side (depending on your doneness preference)," which assumes some knowledge. And the grilled cheese and egg sandwich is, like, "make a grilled cheese, and then put an egg on it."I would recommend flipping through this at a bookstore, or checking it out from the library like I did. It seems like it'd be a sweet blog or Instagram to follow.[This review came out snarkier than I intended -- the photography really is great, and the author does food styling, so props to her.]
Delicious dish? Improve it by topping it with some variation on an egg. This book inspired me to make my new favorite dinner, black beans, salsa & cheese but now with a soft egg on top. Then I put an egg on top of my chicken soup. The photos in this book make every recipe look delicious. However, I didn't find the recipes particularly fresh or new- other than "put an egg on it" which was the whole gimmick.
2.5 stars. Like the other reviewers, I found this book a little too vague and basic. For that, I would have given the book 3 stars like the other two reviewers thus far did. However, I was a bit annoyed at the constant Portland references so I had to remove a half star for that. I live on the west coast and I go to Portland at least once a year-clearly it's a place I like to be. But almost every other page in this book is a reference to a Portland restaurant or food truck. I find that kind of name dropping really annoying in cookbooks, yet a lot of small cookbooks do it. I think her cardinal sin was that if she was going to name drop Portland spots, she needed to reference the best of the best-"The Spot". She even had a waffle recipe and she didn't mention the waffle spot! Gurl, if you are going to try and be Portland hip, you best be Portland hip. But nobody likes a hipster, so stick to the recipes and leave the shout-outs to the acknowledgement section.
