Best Bread Machine Recipes: For 1 1/2 and 2-Pound-Loaf Machines (Better Homes and Gardens Test Kitchen)
Review Date: 11/3/2013


Note that many bread machines only go to 1.5 pounds, so check yours out before ordering this book. If your machine doesn't give poundage, then compare the number of cups of flour they require.

I also agree with the other reviewers about the yeast. Most of the recipes call for 1 to 1.25 teaspoons, I'd use a whole package.

These short stories are lyrical, haunting, and depicts a universe unique to this author. Perhaps not for everyone, but I read these over and over.

It has become a new staple cookbook for me. The title says it all, good basic recipes that don't break the bank. It also contains lots of useful cooking and money saving tips.

This has lots of the classics - brownies, Scotch short bread, lemon bars, etc. in well organized sections. All the cookies I've made from this book have been quite tasty!

A great read! Ms. Jones has a novel situation, and a great ear for realistic dialog in unreal situations. I mean, when the siblings (some human, some griffin) start squabbling about whose turn it is to play Dark Lord, it really rings true. Read it again and again.


The Deed of Paksenarrion: Sheepfarmer's Daughter / Divided Allegiance / Oath of Gold
Review Date: 7/1/2007
Helpful Score: 2


This is the trilogy of books about Paks, under one cover. A very moving, realistic story of the trials and transformation of a simple country girl into a heroic fighter for good. Ms. Moon has real life experience with the military, and it shows in her writing. So you get to see the thought behind the battles, as well as a realistic description of the battles.

Flattened Fauna: A Field Guide to Common Animals of Roads, Streets, and Highways
Review Date: 12/15/2007


It is amusing to see people's faces as they browse my natural history books. I can always tell when they've read the title of this book.

Amusing, with a surprising amount of natural history considering both the size and the humorous tone of the writing. This is a book to use and enjoy!

It was a good read, I admit, kept me going through the whole book. But like most times when Heinlein tries to write a woman's inner thoughts, it comes across more as what a guy fantasizes a woman thinks about: Sex, sex, and, oh, yeah, saving the universe.

I use this book a lot for ideas on how to use up leftovers. It has recipes and suggestions, and an index by ingredient. A good addition to a frugal cook's library.
