I Love Slow Dough
Slow Dough: Real Bread: Bakers' secrets for making amazing long-rise loaves at home - Chris Young

I have been baking bread for most of my life. I have made flat breads, yeast breads, quick breads, sourdoughs etc, but I had never made a slow rise bread thill this year. I love (slow rise) bread, I sound like a famous TV celebrity there don't I? What a difference in texture and taste. Chewy, firm texture with yeasty air bubbles, perfection.

This book has a wonderful collection of recipes, and hints to expand your level  of bread making. There are many recipes that I have not seen before which is wonderful. There is even leftover bread recipes !  Creative, way beyond the french toast option I always go for. The sourdough recipes are all top of my list as are the croissants. I've only tried 4 recipes but plan on making almost all of them this fall /winter.

I think this book is fabulous, for beginners, and more advanced bakers. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. I plan on gifting this book to several people, and myself this holiday season. This book will sit on my favorite cookbooks shelf.



Thank you to the publishers for the advanced e copy

Baker's Magic
Baker's Magic - Diane Zahler

**An ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review**

Don't bake angry!

Whatever mood Bee is in when she bakes is the same mood whoever eats her baked goods will be in. This magic can be useful, but sometimes pretty rough, especially when Bee bakes in a bad mood, and before they figure out that's the cause of the unusually ill-tempered customers. But Bee also is a pretty rad baker, and soon the royal palace wants Bee's baked good delivered to the palace, where she discovers a rather nasty arranged marriage in the making and dastardly plots ruinous to the country. She befriends the Princess Anika and helps her to escape so they can go inform the Mage Council of the unsavory goings-on in Zeewal. Along the way, they encounter a friendly gang of roving tulip pirates, father figures, and tree spirits. Oh, and Anika has a pet hedgehog, so that's cool.

I was so very pleased that Wil had a sort-of romance with Anika and NOT with Bee. #blessed

Overall, it was okay and there were some elements that I very much enjoyed, but it didn't bridge the gap for older readers as well as some MG books manage to, so that I would probably only recommend it for the intended audience.

I also got my hands on a hard-copy, so props to Capstone for their quality of publishing - the pages were thick and the binding was strong and tight.
