This month the "assigned reading" was Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day. I liked it, but didn't love it. I tried a few types of bread, and they were good, but not great. It also was a little frustrating to have to start bread the day before I needed it, and still have to remember to get it out in time to rest and cook. I think I prefer my bread machine. It still takes me near 3 hrs, but I think I am just comfortable with that time frame at this point. :)
I read Dragons of the Valley by Donita K. Paul for blogging for books and loved it. You can check out my review by clicking on that link.
I also got to read the The Divvies Bakery Cookbook it's an allergen free cookbook. My daughter has a friend who is severly allergic to Eggs, Milk, and Nuts and so I've been more interested in finding ways to cook without those things. I loved the book. It was well written, and the stuff tastes good! If you have an allergy sufferer in your circle, this is worth the money!
I have a couple of books that I have started this month, but haven't had a chance to finish yet, but I've had a lot more time to read this month. Hopefully next month I'll have a lot to share.
