I love to make bread! That said I am always trying to improve my breads and if I can find an easier method I am all for it. This book has recipes for loaf breads, artisan bread, sweet rolls and make ahead breads, meaning you can get t ready the day or days before, freeze or bake the next day! I have ordered myself a super stone loaf pan and I intend to try out some of these recipes. Oh yes, there are recipes for butter's and spreads. I don't think you can go wrong buying this book, better yet it would make a fabulous Christmas gift!
