Review

Almost a hundred mouth-watering recipes utilizing spices, fruits and seasonal vegetables provide even the most seasoned bread baker with a host of new ideas and exciting recipes. Try the Tomato Bread with Fresh Basil, the Pumpkin Spice Swirls, or the sweet, low-fat Roasted Chestnut Bread: all are unusual and exceptional. -- Midwest Book Review

More About the Author

Beth Hensperger, a New Jersey-born who now considers herself a California native, has been educating, writing, and demo-lecturing about the art of baking bread and cooking for thirty years. In the last few years, she has shifted focus from baking bread to countertop appliance-driven cookbooks that embrace the use of seasonal ingredients, merge convenience with cooking from scratch, and modernizing the home kitchen: the bread machine, the rice cooker, the microwave oven, and now a four-volume compilation specifically for use with the electric slow cooker, stressing care in preparation and personal creativity.

Hensperger's writing career began when she was chosen as the guest cooking instructor for the March 1985 issue of Bon Appétit. Now she is the author of over twenty cookbooks, including the best-selling Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook series, which includes Not Your Mother's Recipes for Entertaining, Not Your Mother's Family Favorites, Not Your Mother's Weeknight Suppers, and NYMSC Recipes for Two along with the blockbuster first volume, Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook. Also from The Harvard Common Press are The Bread Lover's Bread Machine Cookbook, The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook, and The Best Quick Breads. She is also the author of The Bread Bible, winner of the 2000 James Beard Book Award in Baking, and nominated twice for an IACP Cookbook Award.

Hensperger wrote a food column, "Baking with the Seasons," for the San Jose Mercury News (which was nominated for a James Beard Award in newspaper journalism) for over 12 years until the newspaper downsized.

She is a contributor to dozens of national and online cooking & lifestyle magazines, such as Food and Wine, Rachel Ray Magazine, Prevention, Veggie Life, Working Woman, Family Circle, and Cooking.com, as well as being a sought after radio interviewee speaking on cooking, baking, and entertaining. She lives in the San Francisco Bay area.

One of the - initially - most unasuming bread baking recipe collections. Once I started to bake breads from this book, it was hard to try a new recipe, and not to repeat the old one: every single one was a clear favorite (for a week, until a new one appearred!). I have a nice collection of bread baking books , but this one holds a very special place. Superb, and so tasty!

Format: Paperback
I got this book for my birthday and thought, "Oh, well, a cookbook for the coffee table." After a couple of weeks, however, I started to skim through it out of boredom. I could not put it down. The recipes themselves are enough to make this a book well worth having (although they are somewhat complicated and can be intimidating for the beginning bread baker) but the photographs are mouth-watering as well. And the text that accompanies each section of the book, both in the introductions to the seasons and the introductions to each recipe, are essays unto themselves, worthy of note. If the passing of the seasons has meaning for you, for whatever reason, and you like to bake or just eat bread, you NEED this cookbook

... This book is a terrific addition to anyone's recipe collection. There is such a wide variety of recipes here, and each is unique and delicious. I love that the recipes are separated by season. This allows me to thumb through and find a light bread (summer, spring) or a heavy one (winter, fall), depending on what I'm looking for. Also, I must mention that this book was my very first attempt at baking bread ever -- and it went off without a hitch! I think Hensperger's book is a must have.

Format: Paperback
I've had this cookbook for years and have made only 2 things from it, both of which were delicious....but then I forgot about it until recently cleaning my kitchen. Since it is organized by month, I resolved to make at least one *bread* for the month every month this year (2013). So far, I am on the third one....and ALL have turned out PERFECT. I am a fairly experienced, though not prolific, bread baker, and I find the organization, diversity, and accuracy of recipes to make this the perfect book for either an advanced baker or a beginner! Too bad it's no longer in print; it would be high on my gift-giving list!
