I recently have been SO in love with this book.  It sounds ridiculous, right?  But really, I have been baking bread almost every day, and I have worked 8 to 9 hours the past 8 days in a row.  And STILL have time to bake amazing artisan loaves of bread.  Believe it.  And if you don't... just look at the bread I baked this morning just before work.
Yep, THREE loaves.  I went to work at 8:30 and let me tell you... I am NOT an early riser.  I know I probably come off a little like an info-mercial with all this 'Try it!  You won't believe it!' stuff, but seriously, five minutes and this book and you can have bread that looks just like mine!  And my bread looks just like the pictures in the book!  It's amazing.  And for all you health nuts, get the book Healthy Breads in 5 Minutes a Day.  (Don't worry, I've got both books.)  A couple days ago, I made a pear tart tatine substituting the pastry dough for a whole wheat brioche.  This morning I whipped out those three loaves of seeded boule.  After work I cranked out a batch of dilled white rye dough to bake later in the week and threw a personal-sized loaf of olive and cheese stuffed brioche with cracked black pepper in the oven.  YUM!  So if you love to eat delicious fresh bread and think you can't bake (like me!) then buy this book!  It will totally be worth it!
