This cookbook is very easy to follow, and every single thing I have made has turned out perfectly. My favorite cookbook ever! In some cookbooks the recipes never turn out the way you expect them too, but that is not so with this one. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to bake. It has wonderful recipes for breads, rolls, desserts, pizzas, and many other things. My kids really love the play doh recipe. It is made with all natural ingredients, and last longer than store bought.
This is my first time baking bread, this book has east instructions. My Husband is very pleased.
This is a wonderful cookbook.
