The Better Homes and Gardens All-Time Favorite Bread Recipes from 1979 is one of those thin, hard-backed cookbooks that are found in stacks at thrift shops and flea markets. Many of those books may seem out-of-date, but they have the virtue of not using too many mixes and convenience foods.
I, of course, can’t resist a bread book, so I picked this one up for ½ off the $1 sticker on it at our local church thrift shop. It was worth the investment – it had lots of reliable recipes for quick breads, including waffles, pancakes, biscuits, muffins, cornbread, and the not-so-usual-anymore doughnuts, fritters and popovers, yeast breads, sour dough recipes and some spreads for breads.
I liked the step-by-step illustrations for beginners, and plenty of photos. Even Myrna found a couple of recipes to share next week.
