Making Artisan Breads in the Bread Machine:

Beautiful Loaves and Flatbreads from All Over the World – Includes Loaves Made Start-to-Finish in the … Start in the Machine and Finish in the Oven 

Delicious, comforting, and authentic artisan breads are expensive to buy at your grocery store or local bakery. Now you can use your bread machine to make them at home for a fraction of what store-bought breads cost.

Veteran chef, baker, and food writer Michelle Anderson has put dozens of models and sizes of bread machines through their paces and knows better than anyone what a bread machine can do. Would you like a boule or a baguette with your next picnic or brunch? Would the delectable aroma of a just-made ciabatta or focaccia create the perfect atmosphere for your next pasta supper? Michelle shows you the fastest and easiest ways to make these and many other rustic and comforting breads. Her recipes include breads made from start to finish in the bread machine and others that, because of their shape, are started in the bread machine and finished in a regular oven—the latter still a much easier method than starting from scratch on a counter-top.

Rugbrod (Danish rye bread), Irish Soda Bread, San Francisco Sourdough, German Peasant Bread, Pane Siciliano…there’s a wide and wondrous world of amazing breads to discover in the pages of this book. You’ll even find chapters on cheese breads and herb breads, and an especially delicious one on sweet breads to have for dessert or with your morning coffee.

Millions of people are rediscovering the simple, soul-warming pleasures of freshly made, home-cooked bread. It’s not a lot of work at all—if you own a bread machine and have a copy of this incredibly inventive and eminently reliable cookbook.

Net Galley Book review:

Making Artisan Breads in the Bread Machine includes a comprehensive look into how a bread machine works before listing 100 recipes you can try at home. The recipes found within the book look and sound tasty. I am somewhat disappointed that only about 25% are made entirely in the bread machine. But I understand to get a certain look to a crust the oven is the only way to go. If you have a bread maker ( or on Christmas list) check this book out and enjoy these tasty bread….. Lisa

“This was one of the greatest books ever. Not only did it show the true meaning of Christmas but it also showed that true love is possible!” —Mary’s Opinion

“McKenna Grey, you never cease to amaze me. Your books are filled with such wonderful characters, families, and love. I know I have read this story before, but I enjoyed it just as much this time as I had the first time. Waiting patiently for your next new book.” —M.L.  Sullivan

“I loved all three of the stories in this book. On a cold, rainy day, I enjoyed the lights of the Christmas tree, and forgetting the dismal view outside, I was carried away to three places in the Rockies for a beautiful Christmas setting, where i met strong characters and three charming stories of love renewed.” – Verna Cole Mitchell, poet and author of Somewhere Beyond the Blue

I loved every one of these stories. They are sweet, clean and heartwarming. I give it five stars. I highly recommend it for any reader’s Christmas reading.” —Goodreads Review

From “McKensie’s Christmas Gift” in Christmas in the Rockies

The fog cleared from McKensie’s brain. “And knowing my aunt, she insisted you have the wedding here.”

“Yeah. I thought about moving the location, but Shirley insisted we still have it at the hotel, and Olivia—”

“Wouldn’t have wanted you to change a thing. I get it. Yes, you’ll have it here.” McKensie prided herself on handling tense situations, a handy talent when managing a kitchen. She avoided looking at Cameron throughout her conversation with Julie and realized he hadn’t moved, patient as ever. “When is the wedding?”

“The week before Christmas.”

McKensie raised a brow and studied her friend. “That’s fast.”

Julie shrugged. “When it’s right, it’s right. That reminds me, I have one more thing to ask Shirley about the food. Meet you in the foyer in ten, big brother.” She stopped at the door and pointed to McKensie. “I will call you tomorrow. We have so much to catch up on.”

Julie exited the office with as much excitement as she entered. McKensie replayed some of her last words over in her mind. When it’s right, it’s right.

From “A Snowy Falls Christmas” in Christmas in the Rockies

Her breath faded into the crisp morning air. The stoneware mug cupped in her hands warmed her skin while the lavender tea blend stole away the frigid cold from within. She stood on the expansive deck overlooking the glistening waters of Winter Lake and contemplated her quiet return home.

The Snowy Falls Lodge stood tall and grand behind her, a landmark on the lake and in the quaint mountain village. Her grandmother would have said, “For better or worse, it is now yours, Maura.”

Maura spent the first twenty-five years of her life in the spacious rooms and luxurious halls of the lodge that blended the design of a Scottish castle and Victorian cattle ranch. The idea might have resulted in a haphazard structure had it not been for a truly talented, though little-known, Scottish architect named Charles Mackenzie.

Five years ago, Maura did what no one ever expected—she left home—and not because she didn’t love the lodge or the village. Her father called her a dreamer. Her mother used the word “wanderer,” and her grandmother often said she was a seeker. Maura appreciated her grandmother’s description best. What exactly Maura sought when she left Snowy Falls remained a mystery to everyone.

From “Christmas in Moose Creek” in Christmas in the Rockies

The 4×4 careened to a stop and the driver waited in disbelief at the deplorable timing of Mother Nature. Moose Creek, Montana, had its share of wildlife—bear, deer, elk, mountain lions—but in her thirty-three years, Saige Travers had never seen a moose on this mountain. Until today.

No one waited for her in her swank two-bedroom condo in Seattle except the goldfish her brother gave to her as a joke for her birthday. She’d needed a break from the city and the cataclysmic string of end-of-the-road relationships she’d been in the past five years. More like dates, if she was going to be honest with herself.

Saige Travers didn’t have time for relationships.
