Have a breakfast/lunch cookbook for review?

I’m on a kick recently of looking for breakfast and lunch recipes that fit well around work. I.e., quick, easy breakfasts and lunches that travel well. If you have a cookbook that in part or all addresses these needs and

"Stonewall Kitchen Breakfast," King, Stott & Gunst

Pros: Versatile and delicious! Cons: None Rating: 5 out of 5 Review book (published 2009) courtesy of Chronicle Books.   I just looove breakfast foods. They’re so versatile and delicious, and they certainly don’t have to be restricted to breakfast-time!

"Country Breakfasts," Ken Haedrich

We haven’t adored everything in this cookbook. Some of the whole grain recipes are a little much for us, and some things are just kind of there as far as quality goes.

"Le Cordon Bleu Home Collection: Muffins"

Normally, my fiancee and I love the Le Cordon Bleu Home Collection cookbooks. Most of them are absolutely outstanding, particularly in comparison to other cookbooks. Not so with the Muffins cookbook, unfortunately.

"The Muffin Lady," Linda Fisher

After playing with these recipes, I totally trust Ms. Fisher to show us the way to many, varied, and yummy muffins.

"Mad about Muffins," Dot Vartan

I find the cutesy layout annoying. Maybe you won’t. Regardless, the muffins are worth it; they’re yummy, delicious, and every other adjective I can think of. Just be ready to be confused by weird muffin batters with no explanation.

"Smoothies: 50 Recipes for High-Energy Refreshment" Corpening

My only complaint about this book is that ours is starting to fall apart a bit, and I don’t think we’ve really abused it enough for that.

Cuisinart Waffle-Maker, Round, WMR-CA

The waffles made by this waffle-maker aren’t large, so it takes a little while to bake a raft of waffles for the family. But it’s perfect for small recipes meant for just a couple of people.
