I have a bread machine that has been taking up valuable storage space for quite some time now.

I always want to make bread in it, but never find a recipe that sounds good.  Until now!

When asked if I would review the 300 Best Bread Machine Recipes Cookbook by Donna Washburn & Heather Butt, I jumped all over it!

Yes, yes, yes!

I wanted to be able to get comfortable with my bread machine so that I could figure out what it takes to make good bread.

Tips: Prepare extra wild rice when cooking your favorite duck or goose dinner. Store in the refrigerator or freezer until needed.

See the Techniques Glossary (page 438) for instructions on cooking wild rice.

Yes, you’re reading it right: The 1.5 lb (750 g) recipe contains more yeast than the 2 lb (1 kg).

Variation: Substitute raw, unsalted sunflower seeds or unsalted peanuts for the pine nuts, and dried blueberries or dried sour cherries for the dried cranberries.
