NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * My name is Alton Brown, and I wrote this book. It's my first in a few years because I've been a little busy with TV stuff and interwebs stuff and live stage show stuff. Sure, I've been cooking, but it's been mostly to feed myself and people in my immediate vicinity--which is really what a cook is supposed to do, right? Well, one day I was sitting around trying to organize my recipes, and I realized that I should put them into a personal collection. One thing led to another, and here's EveryDayCook. There's still plenty of science and hopefully some humor in here (my agent says that's my "wheelhouse"), but unlike in my other books, a lot of attention went into the photos, which were all taken on my iPhone (take that, Instagram) and are suitable for framing. As for the recipes, which are arranged by time of day, they're pretty darned tasty. Highlights include:

* Morning: Buttermilk Lassi, Overnight Coconut Oats, Nitrous Pancakes
* Coffee Break: Cold Brew Coffee, Lacquered Bacon, Seedy Date Bars
* Noon: Smoky the Meat Loaf, Grilled Cheese Grilled Sandwich, "EnchiLasagna" or "Lasagnalada"
* Afternoon: Green Grape Cobbler, Crispy Chickpeas, Savory Greek Yogurt Dip
* Evening: Bad Day Bitter Martini, Mussels-O-Miso, Garam Masalmon Steaks
* Anytime: The General's Fried Chicken, Roasted Chile Salsa, Peach Punch Pops
* Later: Cider House Fondue, Open Sesame Noodles, Chocapocalypse Cookie

So let's review: 101 recipes with mouthwatering photos, a plethora of useful insights on methods, tools, and ingredients all written by an "award-winning and influential educator and tastemaker." That last part is from the PR office. Real people don't talk like that.

The blondies are amazing! I am not crazy about everything in grams, but you stretch and grow...and get to eat some amazing food! I liked the Alton - style book and pictures, too.

I loved this cookbook. I am not sure why, but just about every recipe appealed to me. Usually I check out a cookbook, and the pictures are pretty, and it looks fun, but I never get around to actually trying things out. With Alton Brown's stuff, I found myself doing more. I made at least 4 of his recipes and it was time to turn the book back in before I was done with it. I think I may buy this one. There was just so much more that I wanted to try. I get that feeling when I find something I will come back to over and over again. Not often that I find a cookbook like this one.

Alton Brown, Good Eats, Iron Chef, and Cutthroat Kitchen, shares his personal recipes in this book. He also shares his favorite kitchen hardware, pantry items, cooking methods, and spirits before getting to the recipes. Recipes are grouped by morning, coffee break, noon, afternoon, evening, anytime, and later. The food ranges from southern comfort to American classics to international/fusion dishes. Both the text and the photos include Alton's love of science and his wry humor.
