Cookbook author Patty Pinner has been collecting breakfast recipes for as long as she can remember, and she’s included her favorites in a new book, Sweet Mornings: Breakfast and Brunch Desserts That Make Meals Special (Agate Midway, 2016; $27.50). From doughnuts to crumb cakes to corned beef hash, these are the kinds of treats that evoke feelings of warmth and comfort like only good, old-fashioned breakfast food can. Pinner’s authentic, generations-old recipes hark back to the wholesome basics, helping new bakers build their repertoire and reminding older bakers of the heritage dishes they’ve made with loved ones. Sweet Mornings is a reliable, well-tested addition to any baker’s kitchen. Available from www.amazon.com and www.bn.com.
