Description: Stretching from the Alleghenies to the Rockies and from Canada to Texas, the great Midwestern Heartland is rightfully called Americas Breadbasket. Born of this great expanse of fertile land is a cuisine that is grounded in a hearty and healthy love of fresh, mouthwatering foods. Breads brings you favorite recipes from the Heartland that showcase the culinary riches of the region: grain crops, garden-fresh herbs, orchard fruits, and cultivated delicacies such as wild rice, luscious berries, dried cherries, and more. 

Baking at home is back in style, and with modern heavy-duty mixers, food processors, and bread machines, it is easier than ever to make loaves of crusty, wholesome bread in your own kitchen. 

Breads includes delightful yeast breads such as Christmas Cranberry Coffee Wreath, Dill Batter Bread, Harvest Sunflower Bread, Miller's Five- Grain Bread, and Wisconsin Cheese Bread. Bread-machine selections include Blue Ribbon Rye Bread, Cinnamon Currant Toasting Loaf, Maytag Blue Cheese Bread, Swedish Limpa, and Walnut Beer Bread. Among the heavenly quick-bread choices are Cloud Biscuits, Fresh Pear Bread, Sweet Corn Skillet Bread, Sweet Potato Pecan Muffins, and Walnut-Fig Bread. A special section on butters, spreads, and jams offers the perfect topping selections for this oven-fresh fare -- Apple Butter, Blue Cheese Spread, Quick Peach Marmalade, Tomato Jam, and more. 

Breads is also a visual feast, illustrated with more than 50 full-color photographs of the delicious loaves of bread and other baked delights that you can make in your own kitchen -- but never find in the supermarket.
