Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day {Giveaway} Cookbook Extravaganza Week 2

I first picked up Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day in January of 2010 and I still love it. I really can’t say enough good things about this book- it takes all of the work out of bread baking. Each recipe starts with a basic bread dough that’s easy to throw together and takes no time for rising. Simply use a big container and put the dough in the fridge until you’re ready to use it. This book is full of great recipes for everything from cinnamon rolls to pizza crust. Each takes only a portion of your dough and turns it into something magnificent. It’s also chock full of simple, healthy bread recipes. The only draw back to this book is that most recipes need your dough to rest and come to room temperature before baking. Like any other good bread recipe, this means about 90 minutes of resting/rising. As long as you plan ahead, you should have no problem. Read more about my experience baking from this book here.

Ever since visiting Disneyland for the first time this summer and having the Boudin fresh-baked sourdough bread bowl… I am ALL about a good sourdough!

I love making fresh bread it tastes so good and the house smells delish. I love kneeding it and forming it in loaves. My family loves eating my french bread.

Pumpernickel! And brioche. although i guess brioche is considered more of a pastry…

Stuffing! We always used sourdough breadcrumbs, and I’m not sure what we’ll do this year.

Tracy says:

Gluten Free stuffing! Stuffing is my most favorite part of Thanksgiving. But making a good GF one is still a work in progress. I got this book from the library, and had fun making the gluten free bread.
