The Bread Lover's Bread Machine Cookbook is absolutely the easiest and most useful cookbook I own. Every recipe has ended up flawless and my family has loved every one. The information re: types of ingredients, cycles of the machine and tips for success are invaluable. I love it and would definitely recommend it for someone new to bread-making or someone who has been baking for years. Over 300 recipes to choose from as well as delicious jams and spreads make it a true winner!
