Well, I have a bread machine that does a really good job for me - but if you want to make your own rolls, pizza crusts, etc., this book (and its secret tip) is a must-buy. In fact, I'm leaving it on my wishlist and adding it to my half.com wishlist too! You might be able to at least preview it from your library or ILL; that's where I got the copy I scanned.

Edit: something has happened, and my bread machine and I no longer agree. I gave it away. Now I really want this. ( )

I finally bought the book. I was checking out my library's book, returning it, and than checking out the other library copy for about two months. The bread making isn't as simple as 5 minutes a day - but its close. You can't make a bad batch. I've only made the master recipe, but it is so tasty that I really have no desire to try any of the others. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312362919, Hardcover)

There’s nothing like the smell of freshly baked bread to fill a kitchen with warmth, eager appetites, and endless praise for the baker who took on such a time-consuming task. Now, you can fill your kitchen with the irresistible aromas of a French bakery every day with just five minutes of active preparation time, and Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day will show you how.

Coauthors Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François prove that bread baking can be easier than a trip to the bakery. Their method is quick and simple, bringing forth scrumptious perfection in each loaf. Delectable creations will emerge straight from your own oven as warm, indulgent masterpieces that you can finally make for yourself. In exchange for a mere five minutes of your time, your breads will rival those of the finest bakers in the world.

With nearly 100 recipes to put this ingenious technique to use, Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day will open the eyes of any potential baker who has sworn off homemade bread as simply too much work. Crusty baguettes, mouth-watering pizzas, hearty sandwich loaves, and even buttery pastries can easily become part of your own personal menu, and this innovative book will teach you everything you need to know.
