    My best friend loves to cook. She loves to experiment with recipes and dislikes baking because it seems to leave such little room for improvising. I’m the opposite; I love baking because it has such strict recipes and most of the time the oven and the chemistry of the recipe determines the outcome. This book reads like you’re sitting down with a new neighbor. She is from another area and grew up with the same main ingredients but her heritage or just the region in which she lived has her family My best friend loves to cook. She loves to experiment with recipes and dislikes baking because it seems to leave such little room for improvising. I’m the opposite; I love baking because it has such strict recipes and most of the time the oven and the chemistry of the recipe determines the outcome. This book reads like you’re sitting down with a new neighbor. She is from another area and grew up with the same main ingredients but her heritage or just the region in which she lived has her family making these familiar items in different ways, and you’re like WHAT? (Or, possibly it's her incredible food genius, but this is maybe just specific to the actual author, and not this pretend new neighbor.) Something as simple as BROILED GRAPEFRUIT and I was so ready to try the entire cookbook. The simplicity of the recipes and yet the flavorings that Wilson has paired makes me very excited to have a go at these pages—and that’s saying a lot. I, on the whole, am not a fan of cooking. I’d much rather be the 1950s husband and have dinner waiting for me when I get home; let the other person worry. Unfortunately, that isn’t my reality (nor, really, is it anyone else’s). I also hate the grocery shopping, but luckily my husband handles that task (that, or the online shopping tool at my store), but I digress. AND, I loathe the idea of gathering up an entire menu for the week…and going through the ingredients that I have on hand versus what I need to buy. Basically, I dislike the entire experience. So, the fact that these recipes and their lovely pictures makes me excited, is saying something. Lemme say, as an odd side note: there’s a typo on page 156. Now, I knew this when I bought the book because the entire reason I bought this book was because of the recipe found on page 156 (pictured on the cover and on 157). The typo is simple, nothing goes in the oven here, and when it says “oven” it means “refrigerator”…. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes…Remove the burgers from the oven [refrigerator]…. See? I ran across this recipe on Delish.com and was so impressed with this idea and the simplicity of the recipe, but was confused momentarily by the typo that I jumped over to her site…then to her Instagram account, and then to Amazon to buy her book. Wham. I heart Joy the Baker.

    Fancy brunch options for folks who don't want to pay fancy brunch prices. Slightly more high-maintenance than the average breakfast fare, but not so labor-intensive you just say "fuck it" and head out to wait in line at your favorite watering hole. Joy the Baker, renowned for her blog/website, knows how to curate a classy, tasty brunch. Breakfast foods are covered in great detail, including some things with bacon that sound so tasty I'm amazed they're not illegal.

Breakfast foods are covered in great detail, including some things with bacon that sound so tasty I'm amazed they're not illegal. Cocktails and coffee, eggs, and the griddle are represented, but there are also chapters on side dishes, sandwiches, and salads, for those who want something closer to the "unch" side of the equation. Only a handful of these recipes made my personal photocopy list, but the overall vibe is Square Cafe / Coca Cafe / pick your Yinzer hipster establishment; by extrapolation, this book should do well in most mid-sized urban areas as well as smaller communities that don't have access to fancy brunch spots. Recommended for medium-to-large collections.

    I was thrilled when Joy The Baker announced her next cookbook was dedicated to brunch and I have to say this one exceeded my expectations. I've been a big fan of her recipes for several years and there are so many great options in Over Easy I can now add to my arsenal. So far I've made the Grapefruit Rosemary Mimosa, Mini Apricot and Cardamom Scones, and Baked Ratatouille Hash with fried eggs- all winners in my book! On deck soon: Sweet Bacon Pancakes, Breakfast BLTs, and Spinach and Artichoke S I was thrilled when Joy The Baker announced her next cookbook was dedicated to brunch and I have to say this one exceeded my expectations.

    This is my favorite of Wilson's books. Though the others were more technical, I love a good boozy brunch and that's what most of these recipes are for (though you could use them at other times of day, too). Anyway, for me the omelet wheel and simple but fresh drinks were the highlights. I did feel that there could have been more pictures (like I really wanted to see what the spaghetti quiche is supposed to look like before I attempt it), and I felt oddly let down by the dessert/ baked goods chap This is my favorite of Wilson's books.

The tone of this book is a little more light and fun than in the previous two. If you like a good brunch, you've got to check this book out. It's got some fresh ideas on breakfast staples and some delicious drinks.

    Had a wonderful mix of things you probably know how to make (think: sausage gravy) mixed with new more adventurous recipes (think: breakfast burgers or bacon and tomato gravy). Filled with beautiful pictures. Would be a great gift idea for a friend who loves breakfast and easy meals--fill a basket with some pantry essentials and add this book and you'd have a perfect gift.

    Joy Wilson is the bomb! Her blog is one of my favorites and has been for years and this cookbook was full of recipes I'm interested in like: a dill pickle bloody mary, shakshuka with feta and parsley, apricot and cardamom scones, spinach and artichoke strata and so many more! I have made her buttermilk biscuits about six times since March and her blueberry extra crumb coffee cake twice. YUM!

    Pictures of Recipes? Yes. Commentary on Recipes? Yes Nutrition Facts? No Recipe style? Modern Brunch-y. Any keepers? No. The recipes seemed pretty simple, yet I doubt I'll ever go to the trouble of clarifying my own butter, which was called for in a lot of the recipes.

    Excellent cook book for people who love brunch and breakfast foods! Sweet and savory recipes that you can make at home instead of going out for brunch every weekend. Beautiful photographs and fun recipes from one of my favorite food bloggers, Joy Wilson of Joy the Baker.

    Good ideas if you want to do brunch or have friends over for a lazy Saturday.

    There are some great egg recipes and cocktail recipes, but her other cookbook Homemade Decadence is much better.

    Sweet and funny Joy Wilson has served up another home run. I read this cookbook cover-to-cover before trying a single recipe, just because it was so entertaining. Now that I've tried several recipes (we had the Blueberry Sour Cream Waffles 3 times in 10 days), the book has become indispensable in my kitchen. If you are a breakfast, brunch, or breakfast-for-supper fan, you need this book in your life.

    I've already made the cranberry orange scones and the banana bread donuts. The photos are beautiful and the recipes are yummy and happy. The descriptions are well thought out, as well. You can tell Joy takes time and care perfecting her recipes.
