I believe I saw part of this book, in condensed form in the grocery store. I bought a copy of it, went home and devoured it. I did not try any of the receipes. Then a friend said she had bought a bread machine, but was getting dismal results, so I very reluctantly handed it to her, wondering if I would ever see the contents again. I recognize the names of the receipes. This has to be an expanded version of that. I'm glad to see it has been given long life! As I read this book, the thing that is the most helpful, irrespective of the recipes, which are varied, is the tips they give for solving problems. There are many receipes, but how to solve technical problems with the machines are much harder to find. I would trust betty before I would trust anybody else. I grew up on the last cookbook the editors did that was not available in hardback and paper. I have many fancy cookbooks, but betty is the one tht taught me process out of one book-and very sparsely phtographed at that!
