Yes, I have a few things to confess. But before I start, I just want you to know that I couldn't help it. It just happened. Everywhere I went, they wanted me. Whether it was my full body or my distinctive aromatic scent, I can't tell you. All I know is that no matter where you go in this crazy mixed-up world, they all want coffee. Now, I have a few things to share--I think it's time to spill the beans.

Our love affair with coffee continues to blossom. From coast to coast, coffee bars are a shining testament to this glorious romance.

"Confessions of a Coffee Bean covers vast ground as Antol moves from the bean's origins to its spread through Europe. She addresses the physiological and cultural effects the bean has exerted over all segments of humanity. Recipes to supplement the text include both coffee-flavored items and assorted accompaniments to a cup of coffee. An index helps make all this information accessible for school reports on one of the world's most desired commodities."

Who can resist the heady aroma and fabulous flavor of freshly baked bread? Called the "staff of life" for good reason, wholesome bread has been a staple since Biblical times. Today, even though commercial breads contain more healthful natural ingredients than they did a generation ago, they just can't compete with the taste and goodness of a whole-grain loaf baked in your own oven. The problem has long been that bread-making is too difficult--or so it seemed until now. Bernice Hunt's Great Natural Breads Made Easy is a simple-to-follow guide that enables anyone to make a spectacular loaf of artisan bread--even if they've never baked before.

From the classic whole-grain loaf, to the versatile focaccia, to the humble bagel, this book tells you exactly how to mix, knead, shape, and decorate nutritious, mouth-watering breads. The author presents step-by-step instructions for creating perfect muffins, scones, dinner rolls, turnovers, coffee cakes, sourdough loaves, olive-oil-rosemary bread, potato bread, quick breads, and even holiday breads from around the world. To further insure success, Lauren Jarrett's illustrations show exactly how each step is performed.

If you love bread, but have avoided making your own because you thought the process was difficult, don't wait to discover the joys of Great Natural Breads Made Easy.

Bernice Hunt, MS a prolific writer and a psychotherapist, has always found time to indulge her love of cooking. Beginning her writing career as an author and editor of children's science books, she soon honed her ability to write crystal-clear instructions. Her very first book was about molds and yeasts--and, of course, it contained a recipe for bread. When her three children were small, Bernice began to bake daily, and between caring for her family and pursuing a busy career, she found it necessary to invent shortcuts to traditional procedures without sacrificing taste.

Bernice has written several general cookbooks. Even though it's easier to purchase natural, healthful bread than it was when she began, she still prefers to bake her own for all the pleasures it affords. She lives in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania with her writer husband.
