Have I told of my love for bread? No? That's not possible. I'm quite passionate about it. Like if I was stuck on desert island with only one food, that's what I'd choose. But then I'd miss butter. And cake, of course.
I often choose restaurants based purely on their bread offerings. Make it warm and mushy and I'm there. And I'm offended by people who leave it there in the basket untouched. How dare they?
Of course, this little love is not very good for my waistline. I could never give up carbs. I tried the Atkins diet once and it made me very very sick. I do still have a few lingering baby pounds that I've really been trying to shed lately. So the fact that I got this book, that everyone's already talked about on their blogs, has not helped.
But how could I not try it? And let me tell you, it does not disappoint. The only really negative I can say is they tell you to wait til the bread cools to eat it. What?!?!? There's nothing better than hot, fresh bread. I guess it cuts better when cooled, but I just rip it apart in big chunks, so who cares?
My mom has an amazing bread recipe that she makes on holidays. We all look forward to it. It's your typical yeast bread with all the kneading and rising, so it's bit labor intensive, but the results are beyond scrumptious.
But believe me, you don't want to know how much butter goes into those babies. It's best if you never know. And I'm not posting a recipe, not because it's top secret, but because I'm lazy and I don't want to go get it. Really, how many of you would try it anyway?
