Review # 31: Simply Great Breads by Daniel Leader

     Simply Great breads by Daniel Leader is a recipe book filled with beautiful, not to mention flavorful breads that will leave both the reader and baker craving some serious carbs.
     First-off, I must begin by admitting that I am a total bread addict. This summer alone I have experimented with making so many breads that I can't even pick a favorite. Therefore, when I heard that Simply Great Breads was coming out, I just had to get a copy and try out some of the recipes. The photographs of the breads were mouth-watering, I had to stop myself from trying them all out on day one. And, once I started baking, I found the instructions easy to follow and the equivalency tables a great resource for baking. I can honestly say that Daniel Leader knows how to bake some exquisitely delicious breads, however, I wish that there had been more "breads", (loaved), in addition to all the specialty recipes, (Stone Fruit Beignets, Ham and Cheese Crescent rolls, Luxury English Muffins...etc). That said, I did enjoy the delectable recipes and recommend Simply Great Breads to readers and home bakers alike.
Rating: Bounty's Out (3/5)
