Take A Box Of Eggs Cookbook Giveaway

Take a box of eggs is the latest in the Dairy Cookbook series and supported by A collection of recipe videos created by ex-Atomic Kitten and Celebrity Masterchef winner Liz McClarnon and Claridges' Mark Sargean, Liz and Mark are not directly linked to the book itself other than British Lion's eggs have provided the books as prizes. This is a great recipe cook book - it's ring binding make it easy to flip through and there are little QR barcodes on each to scan with your smartphone for a shopping list! - really handy! Especially for Meal Planning!
The book made me think of new simple meal ideas - such as adding a poached egg to potato cakes and bacon, quiche and omelette ideas to introducing me to completely new foods I haven't heard of like Timbales. Not to mention oodles of cake and cookies and ice creams! Yum!
The introduction pages are really informative, they explain different ways of farming (in a paragraph) what the egg codes mean and what the British lion mark stands for and nutritional value of eggs - all condensed onto two pages.
This book is great from novice (how to boil an egg) to eggsperts (souffl├ęs!).

My two small people like flicking through the pictures (great photos throughout!) and picking what they'd like!
Recipes are broken down into simple steps and some include a "cooks tip" at the bottom too.

Press release:
New research shows time-strapped home cooks are more likely to cook a quick meal from scratch than pop a ready meal in the microwave, so it’s cracking news that two rising culinary stars are launching a new recipe collection of egg-based main meals in minutes! The speedy dishes will feature on a new website - alongside a series of step-by-step videos presented by Mark and Liz. The celebs give their best omelette-making tips and show just how easy it is to rustle up meals in minutes using eggs.
British Lions eggs have given us an egg based recipe book to give away.
The latest in the Dairy Cookbook series, Take a box of eggs features more than 100 recipes ranging from the basics of boiling, poaching and frying, through everyday staples such as Tortilla and Quiche Lorraine, to the more adventurous Goat’s Cheese Souffl├ęs and Eggs Andalusia, as well as a range of classic desserts including ice creams, trifles and meringues.

  11. We love good old fashioned chucky eggs with toasted soldiers! The boys often ask for them and nothing beats them!, new follower as well x

  12. My all time favourite is 'egg in a cup' This was my grannys way of providing me with a less messy way of eating runny boiled eggs when I was a child.

    1 soft boiled egg & one slice of buttered bread with crusts cut off.

    The bread was torn up and put in to a large mug, the scooped out egg was added with a pinch of salt and pepper and everything mixed together.

    I still eat it to this day, and now make it for my little boy too. yummy! :)

  13. Ohhh yes please! My favourite is alpine eggs which is a egg, cheese and herb dish that you bake in the oven.
