Naomi's Bookshelf: Books About Bread!


I recently started to make bread at home, and I am really addicted to it! Making bread does take some time, but it does not require any special equipment. Once you try it for yourself, you'll realize how fun and satisfying it can be! Check out my favorite books, or find a new favorite of your own!
