Home Baked Bread Cookbook


Bread - nothing beats the smell of freshly baked bread wafting through your home, then going downstairs and cutting a slice still warm from the oven and covering in butter! Delicious. 
Have you ever wanted to bake bread but just didn’t know where to start? Did you think that it was too difficult? 
Well think again because if you’ve ever wanted a fool proof way to bake bread, then this book has it. 
Bread making is not difficult if you follow a few basic steps and you will also know that your bread is better for you as it doesn’t have all the additives pumped into it that most supermarket breads have. 
And it is cheaper too – roughly half the cost of “in-store bakery” loaves which is only a good thing in this tough economic climate. 
WARNING! This book can turn you into an accomplished baker in next to no time and you will be producing beautiful and varied loaves that will make your friends and neighbours jealous! 
This book discusses the four main ingredients in baking (flour, yeast, salt and water) and then explains the science behind bread baking because if you know what’s going on, you will only get better at it and get great results EVERY time. 
Kneading, arguably the most important step in bread making is covered in great detail including photographs to help you visualise what is being done. In fact the entire process from weighing the ingredients to storing bread is beautifully illustrated with many photographs throughout the book. 

The book includes detailed sections on: 

Kneading (including tests to show that your dough has been kneaded sufficiently) 
Shaping dough into a round. 
Shaping your loaves/rolls etc. 
Adding glazes 
Storing bread 

Recipes include: 
Basic loaf 
Basic sourdough 
Soda bread 

There are handy quick reference recipe guides for the basic loaf and sourdough loaf which are easily printed out for keeping available in your kitchen. 

Also included are some handy conversion charts and a very helpful troubleshooting section describing the most common problems encountered by bakers and how to correct them. 

Note: Due to customer feedback imperial measurements for the recipes have also been included. 

All in all an essential read for the novice and expert baker alike.

Fine Cooking Cakes & Cupcakes

I am a big lover of sweets and this cookbook is one that I am going to use for years to come. The photography is wonderful. The recipes are drool worthy but simple to follow. The variety and variations of recipes are outstanding and will inspire many a Sunday dessert at my home. With step by step instructions that includes photographs for anything that may become a little tricky such as the fancier Boston Cream Pie recipe even a novice baker would be willing to give it a try.  My favorite technique shown in this cookbook is the finger method for spiking meringue, it's simple and would be a fun way to involve a child in helping with baking. I am happy to say that this is one of my favorite cookbooks that I have seen this year! It's well worth grabbing a copy of your own.

Easy Slow Cooker Cookbook


Modern moms are constantly bouncing from place to place. After school activities, work, doctor’s appointments, even daily errands get in the way of the ability to cook a nutritious and tasty meal for the family. The ability to cook just about anything in a slow cooker can alter that imbalance. 

Slow cookers are the most overlooked and valuable kitchen appliance in the modern home. Almost everyone has one, but most people don’t realize the versatility of slow cookers. This recipe collection provides just a brief introduction to what these appliances can do. The recipes contain ingredients found in most kitchens, and produce delicious and healthy results. 

The goal of feeding a family is providing healthy food that you can feel good about preparing and serving. Processed foods are an easy answer, but their nutrient value is lower, and their sodium content is generally higher than home-cooked meals. This collection strives to provide a wide variety of options using very few processed items. That said, there are some items such as soup stocks and tomato sauce that are used. As a result, I’ve included a brief prologue with some basic recipes for kitchen staples that you can make ahead. 

Each recipe was prepared in our test kitchen. Each recipe includes an original picture of the actual recipe that was prepared. 

The recipes in this report call for ‘large’ eggs by default, and unless a cooked ingredient is specified, all items are to be incorporated in the raw state. Since this is a family and diet friendly cookbook, none of the recipes use lard, pork, or alcohol. Major allergens such as peanuts and berries are also largely avoided. 

Each recipe includes the following sections: 

Brief description 
Number of Servings 
Prep Time 
Cooking Time 
Nutritional Information 
Cooking tips [where appropriate] 

Relax for a while. Read a book, watch a TV show, go for a walk; good food doesn’t have to make you a slave to your kitchen!
