If you like to read cookbooks page by page...

Then go get this book.

I need to start taking notes when I add cookbooks to my shopping cart, because I don't know from whose blog I learned of this book, but I thank you (if you know who you are, let me know!)

I spent most of my free time this past weekend with my nose in this book, and I'm smitten. The weather outside was fantastic, but I didn't care. You'd think I could actually smell the wonderful baked goods! I enjoyed the stories behind each recipe, Leslie really pulls you in and leaves you feeling like you could make her lovely breads at home. I'm only half-way through it, so I should be able to spend the next few days finishing it up.

I love to bake, but I don't have a whole lot of practice with breads, even more daunting to me are yeasty breads. I think I'll start on the easier of the breads and work my way up to the ones requiring starter (even though I want to go the starter-route first, as I like the idea of having a new pet!)

If you have this book, let me know what you think!

If you read my blog I sing the praises of that book quite fact my next post will be a bread from there.
I'm lucky enough to live in the city that has that bakery.

Peabody - You're correct - it was your Morning Glory post (went back and searched)! I even saw those in the book over the weekend. Yum! Thanks for jogging my memory!
