I love to cook and the bread recipes in this book are those that I use regularly. When I come across a new recipe that looks good I often follow that recipe closely the first time, and then adjust it to my needs and preferences until I have just what I'm looking for. Sometimes the modified recipe is similar to the original and sometimes it is quite different.
In this book you'll find my base recipes as I have adjusted them. I go beyond those basic instructions however, to include a variety of tips and tricks that will help you to make your own adjustments if desired.
All of the recipes in this booklet are simple, easy and flexible. You'll find in fact, that I have only included about a dozen basic recipes because these are building blocks. Once you are comfortable with the baking knowledge you gain from this book you will be able to skillfully whip up a number of different tastes and textures by making simple adjustments.
Each recipe is simple yet delicious, and none of them require expensive special ingredients. With this booklet, you can dig into the pantry and create
Rich Fudge Brownies
Sweet White Bread
Easy English Muffins
I am not a professional chef. I don't have a cooking show on TV and I don't claim to know everything under the sun about baking bread. I am simply a 40 something year old woman who learned to cook from scratch as a child and have done so regularly throughout life. I love to make baked goods and I'm quite good at it.
I strongly believe in creating food that is filling, flavorful and satisfying. I do not like sweet for sweet's sake for example - sugar is not a flavor in my world, it's a compliment - but I love rich and flavorful. If you're not sure of the difference, trust me, you will understand fully after you've made my Rich Fudge Brownies :
All of my base recipes use standard pantry items. I look for new recipes when I'm in the mood to cook - not shop.
I always have a supply of pantry Staples on hand so that I can cook whenever the mood strikes. If you are a strict beginner to baking bread and related sweets at home, you may find there are ingredients you'll need to purchase. I've provided a pantry Staples list in the baking basics section of this book to help you get those initial supplies stocked.
This book uses standard American measurements and abbreviations. If you are unfamiliar with these, refer to the measurements reference section at the end.

Foreword The Greatest Discovery Of Any Generation Is That A Human Being Can Alter His Life By Altering His Attitude. - William James
You are what you think about A door-to-door salesman taught me one of the most important lessons of life. The most brutal truth.
Knowing the right momentA short article by Winston Churchill during a rest break on the shipping dock taught me the importance of timing.
Be honest with yourself about yourself I took up the sport of golf and the first important lesson I learned had nothing to do with hitting the ball.
For anything to be totally spontaneous it must be rehearsed My professor said something strange and also very important.
Money equals choices not things To achieve the type of financial freedom that few know, focus on the options money gives you.
Persistence as the ultimate attribute The famous quote of President Calvin Coolidge made so much sense and immediately became my favorite.
Nobody can ring your bell The intimidators in life move on to prey on others when they realize they can’t ring your bell.
When things aren't going your way - They are Today’s rejections, no matter how painful, are tomorrow’s opportunities.
Hone your patience to best your competition With your eyes always on the prize, the ability to outwait everyone, if need be, is so important.
Create a dilemma Rather than wait for that special wish to happen make the goal that of causing many to happen at once.

Be obsessive about communication Despite all the wonders of technology, unresponsive is the norm. Communicate, Respond, and Stand Out!
The word is integrity Your word is your bond. You do as you say and nothing less. A leader without integrity is dead in place.
Trusting your own judgment My student became my teacher when he asked the impossible question.
Mary Todd Lincoln, wife of the president we have immortalized, has always been difficult for us to understand. She could appear poised and brilliant one moment, yet rude and ugly the next. Sometimes competent and strong, able to entertain dignitaries from around the world, at other times she appeared dependent and weak. At times she seemed utterly beside herself with sobbing and screaming. Historians have mostly avoided saying very much about Mary Todd Lincoln except in reference to her husband, Abraham. To many it would seem that Mary Todd Lincoln is still an embarrassment in the tragic story of her martyred husband. But Mary Todd Lincoln lived her own tragic story even before Abraham was murdered. She was an addict, addicted to the opiates she needed for her migraine headaches.
Seeing Mary Todd Lincoln as an addict helps us understand her and give her the compassion and admiration she deserves. In her time there had been no courageous First Lady like Betty Ford to help people understand the power of addiction. There was no treatment center. In Mary Todd Lincoln’s time there were many addicts at all levels of society, as there are now, but it was a more socially acceptable condition for men to have than for women. More importantly, addiction was not very well understood, and it was often mistreated.
Because Mary Todd Lincoln’s only surviving son, Robert Lincoln, made a great effort to protect his mother and his family from journalists and historians, he intentionally destroyed most of Mary Todd Lincoln’s medical records and many of her letters. What he could not destroy, however, is the record of Mary Todd Lincoln’s pain and the record of how she behaved while living with this pain.
In The Addiction of Mary Todd Lincoln, we can see clearly, for the first time, what Mary Todd Lincoln had to live with and the courage it took for her to carry on.
Archer Hamilton is a collector of rare and beautiful insects. Gina Shaw is a servant in his uncle’s house. Clearly out of place in the position in which she has been discovered, she becomes a source of fascination . . . and curiosity.
A girl with a blighted past and a fortune she deems a curse, Gina has lowered herself in order to find escape from her family and their scheming designs. But when she is found, the stakes suddenly become dire.
All Gina wants is the freedom to live her life as she would wish. All her aunts want is the money that comes with her. But there is more than one way to trap an insect. An arranged marriage might turn out profitable for more parties than one.
Mr. Hamilton is about to make the acquisition of a lifetime. But will the price be worth it? Can a woman captured and acquired learn to love the man who has bought her?
