In each section, Beverly provides recipes for "always on hand" mixes, providing all the ease of packaged foods without the preservatives. Many of the recipes also can be made ahead and frozen. An introductory section on baking science gives easy explanations on how different flours and ingredients affect the quality of the finished product, while each chapter opens with "Quick Tips" and "Special Equipment" listings.
Like the pioneers, we have a lot to do besides baking, but we still crave that homemade goodness and all that it represents. With this book, Beverly Cox shows us how to have it all - hot, fresh, and fast!
