I can no longer recall whose blog first mentioned this book, Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, but I am so glad they did! In law school I used to bake my own bread from scratch, with Sundays spent kneading and watching/waiting. In the past few years I've made our bread in the bread machine (a wonderful invention). Both of those breads were good, healthy, and cheaper than buying bread in the store. But the breads I can make with this book are awesome! Just as easy as the bread machine, but yummier and the shapes are more pleasing. Way easier than all the kneading, and also yummier. So far I pretty much just bake the basic bread and these delicious sticky buns, but I have grand plans to try all the variations in the book, especially the pizzas. I really recommend you try it out! My library had it, yours might too, although I think you'll buy it after you try it, like I did.
