I feel I've used this enough to leave a little review. I have made MANY loaves of bread from this cookbook, from three of the recipes: the basic recipe, the light whole wheat loaf, and the olive oil dough (for pizza). All of them have been delicious. The whole process is very simple and creates a nice loaf for toast, sandwiches, french toast, etc. The results are different than the Lahey no-knead bread, which turns out lovely as well, but is crustier and with a lighter crumb. This bread is definitely denser and the crust is chewier and softer than the Lahey recipe.

Since I bought this cookbook, I have baked two to three loaves of fresh bread a week and always have bread dough in my fridge. I have always wanted to make my own bread, but was intimidated by the process. This book has changed that!
