I've been eyeballing this book in stores and I was thisclose to giving
"real" breadmaking a chance.  If any book could entice me to try, it's
this one.  So many recipes, tips and healthy goodness in one book!

So when I was contacted about receiving a book for review I jumped at the
chance.  Admittedly, I have not actually made any of the recipes, but trust
me when I say that I should. In fact, I should be in my kitchen right now,
wiping flour from the countertop and reveling in the smell of the healthy,
delicious bread that I created with my own hands.

Yet, instead I sit here at my computer.  What a lazy, lazy girl.

The good news is that YOU can benefit from my laziness!  Yes, I've decided that
although I adore this book and would love to keep it for my very own - or give
it to someone close to me as a fabulous Christmas gift - I'm going to give it to
one of my fabulous readers as a Christmas gift instead.  Tis better to give than
to receive, right?  

To enter my giveaway, please leave a comment below and tell me what your favorite
kind of bread is!  That's it, friends.  Easy peasy.  But first, please read below
some groovy info from the publicist who was kind enough to send me this awesome book:
Their first book was called "stupendous," "genius," and "the holy
grail of bread making." Now, in their much-anticipated second book,
Jeff Hertzberg, M.D., and Zoë François have taken their super-fast
method and adapted it for the health-conscious baker, focusing on
whole grains and other healthier ingredients.

The method is still quick and simple, producing professional-quality
results with each warm, fragrant, hearty loaf. In just five minutes a
day of active preparation time, you can create delectable, healthy
treats such as 100% Whole Wheat Bread, Whole Grain Garlic Knots with
Parsley and Olive Oil, Black-and-White Braided Pumpernickel and Rye
Loaf, Cherry Black Pepper Focaccia, Pumpkin Pie Brioche, Chocolate
Tangerine Bars, and a variety of gluten-free breads. And many of the
recipes are 100% whole grain.

Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day will show you that there is time
enough for home-baked bread, and that it can be part of a healthy
diet. Calling all bread lovers: Whether you are looking for more whole
grains, watching your weight, trying to reduce your cholesterol, or
just care about what goes into your body, this book is a must-have.
