Here at GRIT we love good breads of all kinds and so this project was a labor of love for the entire team. It didn't hurt that we got plenty of samples as we tested the recipes. We also had fun working with some excellent and affordable food stylists, photographers and bakers in the process. With a little coaxing, My Partner In Culinary Crime convinced me to carefully measure out the ingredients for my whole-wheat and cornmeal pizza crust, which I documented just for the book  this easy crust recipe will have you rejecting cardboard-crusted parlor pizza in no time. We really enjoy bringing you print products that makes sense and that make your lives more interesting and self sufficient. When it comes to the Guide To Homemade Bread, I speak for the whole team when I say that the project makes us proud.

My hat is off to you! I have been working on a family cookbook for a number of months now, so we don't lose some wonderful recipes by lost and older relatives. Yesterday I bought the Guide to Homemade Bread and was absolutely thrilled to find in it a couple of recipes I thought were gone forever (worn out, torn from use). Thank you so much for a timely and wonderful magazine! As I look through it, I find others that I must try and will most likely add to the family cookbook. Regardless, the magazine stays! I know the quality of your publications from years of familiarity, so there is no doubt these will all be great.

@Hank, home made bread is one of my favorite things to eat. There are so many recipes of different kinds of bread that surely everyone can find a favorite. I used to make bread twenty some years ago but life got in the way and the bread making has been shelved. Many blogs have given readers encouragement to bake and shared recipes with all of us. My interest in baking bread is becoming stronger and stronger. I am hoping that during the dark cold months of winter to revive that recipe that I used all those years ago. It would not only warm the house but nourish the body as well. The recipe book that Grit has produced may just be the thing to get the Urban Ranch baking started. The hint at an easy-to-build, wood-fired, backyard bread oven really intrigued my project oriented mind. It’s been a great summer and I’m looking forward to the coming fall and winter months. Inside projects like finishing up the main bathroom remodel and cleaning out the basement for habitable living again are on the list. Urban ranching always has a project in the planning stage, a project in the building stage, and a completed project to enjoy. I hope all your baking days produce delicious smells and tongue tantalizing delicacies.
