I received this book about two weeks ago and have used it more than once. I enjoy reading cookbooks like others read novels and I have done so with this one. Very easy to use and informative. Also, the cost was lower than other places I checked and it came in about three days without paying for special delivery.

I had checked this book out of the library and loved it so much that I had to buy it. The basic recipe is so versatile and you can use it to make many different things (pizza, artisan bread, cinnamon rolls, fried bread)...and then there are several other bread recipes along with recipes to go along with the bread. I have never been successful with bread until now!

I haven't baked yeast bread in 20 years and back then it seemed to take forever. This is the BEST book I have ever seen for baking fresh bread! Using my standing mixer, I can whip up a batch of dough, put it in the fridge overnight and bake fresh bread the next morning. I have even frozen dough to use later and it came out perfectly! The directions are super simple, the recipes I've tried are PERFECT and you can even go to you tube to see a demonstration. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to make their own bread. I'll NEVER buy the store bought stuff again!

I bought this book for my husband who recently began to enjoy making bread. He made his first batch and I'm sure it won't be the last. So easy to make and have fresh bread daily. There goes the diet!!!
