Gluten Free Bread Memories Giveaway! – *NOW CLOSED*

**UPDATE** This giveaway is now CLOSED! Thank you so much to all who entered! Winners have been notified by email already! The Bakes Bread BIG and BIGGER Giveaway is still open!! Please enter that giveaway on the blog. No email entries please! Than you so much to all who entered!

Gluten Free Bread Memories Giveaway - Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread!

It’s time for some new book fun! Today the Gluten Free Bread Memories Giveaway begins! Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread is allllll about bringing back the breads you love, the ones you remember, and making them at home for yourself, your family, your friends, your gluten free neighbor or niece or cousin. The best part? Everything from the method (no more weepy, wet mound of gluten free bread dough! long slow, flavor-developing refrigerator rises!) to the taste and smell and look? So much like you remember, you won’t believe you’re not cheating. It’s a Gluten Free Bread Revolution! That’s why this first giveaway (the next one will be announced next Monday, and it’s gonna knock your socks off – pre-order and you can enter to win them all!) is all about a Bread Memory, about the bread you miss the most from your gluten-eating days. On to the prizes!

Take a good look at the photo just above and everything in it (clockwise from top): mixing bowl, half sheet pans, Williams-Sonoma Goldtouch 1 pound loaf pans, a digital calculator (yes! you need it), a glass jar and wooden spoon, a 2-cup liquid measuring cup, and lidded proofing buckets. We’re not done. Scroll please. There’s more.

Gluten Free Bread Memories Giveaway - Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread!Again, clockwise from the top in this next photo: a Zyliss paring knife (for slashing bread dough – less scary than a lame), an oven thermometer, an instant-read thermometer (for checking to see if bread is done), measuring spoons, a whisk, a digital kitchen scale (essential!), a metal bench scraper, a flexible plastic bench scraper, a French rolling pin, and unbleached parchment paper. Know who sponsored all of this? No one. Me. Know what’s missing? A signed copy (or unsigned if you’d rather I not deface your pretty book) of Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread! It’s not in the photo … because I don’t have one yet! It’s being printed. *yikes*

Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread Table of ContentsI do have an electronic .pdf of the final pass pages of the book. And, since the Look Inside feature is not available just yet on amazon (any day? I hope!),  I have my publisher’s blessing to share the Table of Contents with you. That’s to help with the “is [this] recipe in the new book?” question. I had to piece together screen grabs of each page of the Table of Contents in my .pdf, but if you click on the piece of art just above (it’s one .jpg), you can enlarge it on your screen and see it a bit more clearly. As soon as Look Inside is active, I will edit this post to reflect that.

So … how do you enter The Bread Memories Giveaway? Easy! First, pre-order the new book from your preferred source (links below). Pre-orders from way back when? Those count! In fact, orders up through the end of the day EST on November 20, 2013 (when the contest closes) all count. Did you pre-order more than one book? Enter as many times as the number of books you purchased! You don’t have to pre-order to enter into the contest, but I sure hope you will. Please at least indicate that you are considering ordering the new book! Next, either post a photo of your receipt/proof of purchase by clicking on the camera icon in the comment form below or just include your pinky swear promise in the text of a comment that you either pre-ordered or are seriously considering it. Finally, in the text, tell us all a Bread Memory. A Bread Memory is a memory you have about the bread you miss the most from your gluten-eating days. So, it’s really a Gluten Bread Memory, but calling it that might be scary and confusing (for me!). See Step 3 in the “recipe” directions below for a full description.

I will mail one (1) lucky grand prize winner (selected through random.org) everything you see pictured in the first 2 photos above + a signed copy of the new book! Then, I will turn to random.org once more to select three (3) more winners of a signed copy of the new book!

In case you missed any of the directions, they’re detailed again in the “recipe” below. Good luck!!

    Mine is on my Christmas list, but I will order it if I don’t find it under the tree!

    My favorite bread memory is making garlic, rosemary, Parmesan focaccia. I ended up buying a stand mixer as a present for my husband so that I could make weekly focaccia. It turned out I always had to make 2 pans because the first pan out of the oven would disapear so quickly, there would be any left for dinner/guests/potluck because my husband and daughters would slowly wander through the kitchen and get a piece every time!

    Mine is ordered (Order #113-822-8929-338-4210 ) and I am anxiously waiting it’s arrival!

    After visiting my daughter who was studying in Marseille, France back in 2007, she took us to a small bakery at the train station as we departed for Italy. This small shop had less bread items than almost any other boulangerie that we had visited while traveling through Provence, and I ordered two baguette sandwiches to hold me over–one ham and cheese and one chicken salad.

    Although I am not generally an eater of large lunches, the seeded baguette really hit the spot, and I devoured the entire sandwich (much to the surprise of the rest of my family!) Only a few hours later, even though I was still full from my earlier baguette, I found myself eating the second sandwich–the bread was simply too good to pass up. Even after all these years, I still find myself missing the bread from that small sandwich shop at a train station in Southern France.

    Pre order is complete! I can’t wait to try out some recipes at holiday gatherings. My favorite bread memory is making sticky pecan rolls with my dad. He cooked a lot but barely ever baked. It was always a treat to see him get out the stand mixer to start a batch. I didn’t like pecans at all back then and would pick them off. If only I had known to savor the whole experience while I could!

    I ordered the book on Amazon and can’t wait to receive it! My favorite memory is fresh baked challah, which of course leads to the best french toast. My daughter misses this treat since her celiac diagnosis almost 3 years ago. I can’t wait to make her this favorite again.

    As soon as I finish here, I am ordering the book for my favorite Celiac!

    My daughter still remembers how excited she got when her Grandmother’s special tin of cookies arrived for Christmas. She loved all those tasty treats. After she was diagnosed with Celiac 3 years ago, she was very disappointed she could no longer eat her Grandmother’s cookies. She also misses those Swedish ginger cookies from World Market Cost Plus this time of year.

    I am pre-ordering a book for a friend and I am purchasing the ebook for myself as soon as it becomes available. I travel between Atlanta and Phoenix and I always want to have all 3 of your cookbooks available without carrying the extra book weight.

    My favorite bread memory is the yeast rolls I used to help my mother make every holiday when I was a child. I used to love eating leftover rolls with egg nog for breakfast after Christmas.

    My favorite bread memory is stopping on my way home from work to pick up a donut for my 8 year old daughter. When you’re 8 a blueberry glazed donut just seems to make the world a better place….until you’re diagnosed with Celiac.

    We found out that our baby has Celiac almost one year ago. We set out gluten free date and we asked her what she wanted for her last “wheat eat”…it was simple, a donut from the local shop. I went in and through teary eyes ordered her donut. I barely uttered the word blueberry and began to sob. I apologized to the lady and explained to her that this was my daughters favorite treat, and the last time she could ever have it. She cried and gave me those on the house.

    Almost one year later my daughter and I have made breads, cakes, cupcakes, some amazing Gluten Free on a Shoestring Mrs. fields cookies and even donuts together. My favorite bread memory I guess is really the time I get to share with my girl…and donuts!

    Ordered the book back in the summer. Can’t wait!
    My fav bread memory is this tiny bakery that I used to frequent with my mom during lunch breaks on my first job out of college. They made the most amazing bread bowls for soups. I had the best discussions with mom over those bread bowls. Do you have bread bowls in the book? Yum!

    Oops, I put my bread memory on the other page. I used to love to eat sourdough bread with clam chowder. Those were the days. Haven’t had a slice of sourdough since going gluten free. I preordered back on August 12 and look forward to the release of the book. I already have the other two. Order #112-8574835-1229000.

    I had my daughter in February 2001 after an easy pregnancy and a very challenging birth. It was so cold and dark that winter. I felt completely trapped in my house with this baby I didn’t understand. My husband and friends couldn’t even really reach me. So, I baked my grandmother’s cinnamon rolls and danishes. I remembered her comfort and love. I remembered while I rolled out white flour-y goodness that she’d faced challenges as a new mom, and we would eventually be okay. When I was diagnosed with celiac almost four years ago, one of my first thoughts (besides the fact that I would have really enjoyed the peanut butter sandwich more if I’d known it was going to be my last) was I would no longer be able to make Nammie’s cherry rolls and cheese danishes. I was crushed, but I physically felt so much better that I overcame my sadness and instead found you. With the help of your other two cookbooks, I learned how to replace everything that I thought was once lost. So, I ordered two copies of your baking bread cookbook. One for myself and one for my mom (who’s gluten intolerant, but in denial). Thank you so much
    P.S. We had our son in the very warm and sunny month of September!!

    I have ordered 4 bread books, one for myself and 3 for family members who also have to eat gluten free. I am really excited to make great breads like I used to be able to eat! My favorite bread memory is waking up to the smell of freshly baked buns which my Mother had been up for hours making. That’s how to get a teenager to get out of bed!!! Fresh buns for breakfast! Can’t wait for the books to arrive so I can BAKE HAPPY!

    I’m so excited for your bread book!!! Oh how I miss bread with all its “wheaty gluteny” goodness lol.
    My fondest memories are truly those of my mom regularly (weekly) mixing, proofing, kneading and baking BREAD!! From white bread to sour dough to cinnamon rolls and everything in between. I started to carry on the tradition to my own children but now I need to carry it forward Gluten Free Style!

    I solemnly pinky swear that I am up to no good- and that I am ordering the book. My favorite bread memory is of the Martha White bag mix “just add milk” chocolate chip muffins my mother used to make for me for my birthday breakfast each year prior to my diagnosis.I miss waking up to the smell of those muffins and how deliciously fluffy and chocolate-y they were!

  • Leah Rotman
    November 20, 2013 at 9:40 PM

    I just pre-ordered mine. I am so excited! My favorite bread memory is ulimately baking breads, rolls, muffins, etc. with my grand-mother and my mother. I do pf course miss tearing off a fluffy, yeasty dinner roll and the lovely flavor. But I miss the flavor and texture of a lot of baked goods ;). Thank you for everything you do! I tell every one I know about you and your gluten free magic! I truly don’t know what I would do with out you!

    One of my favorite bread memories is when we were stationed in Germany in the early 90’s. The home we were renting in town had these amazing wall heaters in the living room that were perfect for rising bread dough. One Thanksgiving morning, I made two loaves of bread before the family woke up. I set the loaf pans on the heater, covered with a towel and left the room. I came back later to find the whole family sitting in front of them, including the dog! The delicious aroma of fresh bread rising woke all those noses up!

    I pre-ordered in August (12-9920160-524743) and anxiously waiting as visions of bread dough dance in my head!

    Thank you for all you do!

    I am so buying this on Thursday :) …. My Bread Memory is simple … I LOVE cinnamon raisin bread toast … you know the one … that is got swirls of cinnamon and raisins all through it … I just can’t seem to figure out how to make it GF that same way …

    I pinky swear that. I’m super interested in ordering the book. I’m waiting to get my hands on it at the bookstore. :) I I’ve always gotta flip thru a copy of the books first and see if I can imagine myself able.to make the recipes. so far I’ve done great with your other two books. but it’s a g great excuse to go sit in the bookstore for coffee and quiet.

    I’m gonna use my 8year-olds memory because.she’s been.mentioning for the past few weeks now, she remembers when she. was 2, and we still ate gluten, and I took her to a local NY bagel shop. and we’d eat yum. I always had a cranberry bagel with pumpkin spice cream cheese, this time of year. and she’d have bagel knots which were extra bagel.dough in knots with a little frosting. she misses it, 6 years later. she remembers it from 2. I’d love to be able to make her a lovely bagel and maybe even some knots, depending on how your recipe works!

    I have it on very very very very good authority that my mother has or is getting me this book as a stocking stuffer this year! Exciting! And if she doesn’t get it for me, I’m most definitely buying it! I haven’t had a recipe yet not work for me!

    I miss Pita Bread the most. I was born in Greece and ate greek food my whole life. I miss having a nice Gyro with soft delicious warm pita bread.

    I have not pre-ordered the book yet because I have already put it on my Christmas list. I just recommended your new book, existing cook books, and blog to two ladies at the grocery store today who have just had family members recently diagnosed Celiac. I recommend your site to everyone who asks me questions about being GF.
    My two most missed bread items since I was diagnosed in March are soft pretzels and homemade Swedish Rye bread especially toasted. I also miss the process of making bread. I loved to make the bread from start to finish and have the house smell like freshly baked bread.
    Thank you for your wonderful cookbooks and blog. Both make my life much easier now that I am GF. I also appreciate all the work you have done to make the flour blending accessable and easier.

    My email address is ejberggren96@comcast.net.

    Since I ordered 2 books, here is my 2nd bread memory:
    When my children were young, I didn’t like them eating the garbage that was in sandwich bread, so I started baking bread for daily lunches. My son was in 6th grade when he came home one day and gave me a big hug and said he loved me SO SO much! When I asked what that was about, he said he traded his sandwich at lunch and it was disgusting. He said he’d never trade again and he loved me not making him eat the ‘nasty stuff’. hahaha. Kids are great!

  • jena
    November 20, 2013 at 8:52 PM

    I ordered 2 books back in July!
    I was always the bread baker in the family at holidays. Everyone loved the italian garlic bread SO much that I had to start making an extra ‘decoy’ loaf because the kids would quickly consume the bread before we could sit down for dinner. They would mug me the minute I walked in and would take off with the bread. lol! I think they were more disappointed than I was when I was diagnosed Celiac.

  • Mary Eastman
    November 20, 2013 at 8:49 PM

    I preordered your book in September and am anxiously awaiting it’s arrival. The bread memory is my husbands as I can eat gluten and he can not. I am his baker. He remember eating pizza Hut’s pizza and sags if he could eat gluten just once with no reaction he would eat a whole Pizza Hut pan pizza.

So excited for your next book to come out! Thank you for all your fabulous recipes and tips! You make GF living so much more enjoyable! :)

  • jillian
    November 21, 2013 at 1:44 AM

    Definitely ordering the book off of Amazon! And my favorite bread memory is when I was younger and would walk home from school. My mom would make bread every two weeks or so, and on the days that she did, you could smell it before you even walked in the door. That fresh yeast and wheat smell filled the air. The best part was that she would attach these small little pieces of dough to the end of the loaves that we called “pull-aparts”. This was the first part that you ate fresh out of the oven, the part that had the most crunch. I can still close my eyes and smell that smell. :)

    November 20, 2013 at 8:44 PM

    Ordered number 114-2418578-3949008. I miss my blueberry lemon scones. I had finally found the perfect recipe, light, fluffy, oh so good and eight months later was told I was gluten intolerant. Oh, and the sweet, yeast rolls, and a none bread item, my grandmothers chocolate chip cookie recipe that I finally figured out how to make them taste like hers did.

    I Preordered from Amzon for $14.78 and cant wait to get it. Making gluten free bread in my bread machine has been very challenging to say the least. Even with Xanthun gum I cant get it to stick like the good Udi bread we love so much! We really need to find a recipe that we like on a budget so glad you have the bread cookbook coming out. I miss the smell of the caramel cinnamon bread my mom used to make when we could have bread with gluten. I am buying a 2nd book for my daughter for Christmas. Thank you so much! Lisa

  • Lynne
    November 20, 2013 at 7:58 PM

    Ordered! Order #107-4307088-6875445 from Amazon. I think what we miss the most is actually the smell of bread baking. I used to bake a lot and the smell is comfort to my family :) I can’t wait to have that yeasty, wheaty smell filling my house again!

    (Part of my email from Amazon shows I ordered your book in June….
    We’re writing about the order you placed on June 18, 2013..). By the way, I already have your other two books. They are great!

    My bread memory has two parts: the smell and taste of fresh bread from the oven and, most especially, baking it with my Italian Nana. On any Saturday morning, I could expect a call from her to “come help with the bread.” Did I mention she lived next door? The kitchen table was covered with the proper paraphernalia–flour, bread cloths, yeast, measuring cups and a large stainless steel bowl.. Each bread-making experience was the same. I was reinstructed on the proper way to mix the ingredients, how much flour to use to keep the bread from sticking to the towel, and how to “rock” the gluten into submission. I enjoyed hearing, again and again, her stories of growing up in Italy. She said baking bread was a weekly affair; she and her 6 sisters took turns making the 20-plus loaves of bread the family consumed; every meal included bread.
    My bread-making experiences embrace not only learning the art of its techniques but very special memories of a wonderful woman and recollections of her Italian childhood.

    I ordered the book as soon as I heard! I love all your recipes, they make GF bearable! Thank you! Seriously, thank you. My bread memory? I was in the Canary Islands and the local farmer’s market had this bread–deep yellow in color, full of eggs and butter, and layered with caramelized onions and garlic. I could eat a whole loaf while walking through the market. I have dreams about that bread…

    I pinky swear I am ordering this book next week!!! My favorite gluten memory is centered around the *smell* of bread baking in my mom’s kitchen. I was in such anticipation for that first warm, crusty bite – butter dripping down my hands- that I would plant myself in front of that small oven window willing it to be done faster. Even now, just thinking about it makes my mouth water!

I really enjoy your site and the recipes I have been able to try so far have been amazingly successful, I am so very excited to tackle bread with your help!

  • November 20, 2013 at 9:09 PM

    I hope my hubby has pre-ordered your book. Sent him the link months ago and told him to buy it for me for Christmas. I’d call that a very strong hint!
    My favorite glutenous bread memory is a warm sourdough Panini filled with swiss cheese, roma tomatoes, and fresh basil. Yum!

    I pre-ordered your new cookbook this morning from Amazon. Can’t wait! I’m really enjoying your blog and recipes. I have two bread memories that surface this time of year. My mom always made sweet breads for the holidays – about 4 different ones. So loved them. Would eat them Thanksgiving and Christmas mornings with cream cheese. Very yummy. Starting to try to re- create them gluten free. Thanks for your help! the other memory is of the most tender, sweet homemade crescent rolls my aunt always brought to the holiday gatherings. Melt in your mouth they were.

  • November 20, 2013 at 7:49 PM

    I ordered my copy from Amazon. SO sad every time they email me an extension on the delivery!! I miss sourdough so badly! It’s so good with homemade soup, and it just doesn’t feel the same without sourdough bread. I can’t find commercially prepared sourdough anywhere, so I’ve tried and failed to make GF sourdough starter several times, and I can’t get it to work. I never had that problem with “wheat” sourdough starter. Looking forward to trying all the yummy sounding recipies you have listed!

    I ordered your new book quite a long time ago – August 8th, to be exact, from Amazon. I’ve been counting the days until its arrival ever since! I tried to copy the receipt over here, but I couldn’t get it done. I’m not tech savvy!

    The bread is miss the most is my Aunt’s rolls. She made them every
    Thanksgiving and Christmas and I followed the tradition and made 6 dozen
    for both holidays. They were called “One Hour Buttermilk Rolls” and
    they were absolutely foolproof. My nephew called them the “lip” rolls,
    because I rolled them out Parker House style (like my aunt and uncle
    taught me) and he said they looked like lips that you opened to put the
    butter in. When we would walk in the door at my husband’s family,
    everyone would start hollering, “the rolls are here!” and there would be
    a rush for the kitchen. Good memories!

    I ordered your new book quite a long time ago – August 8th, to be exact, from Amazon. I’ve been counting the days until its arrival ever since! I tried to copy the receipt over here, but I couldn’t get it done. I’m not tech savvy!

    The bread is miss the most is my Aunt’s rolls. She made them every
    Thanksgiving and Christmas and I followed the tradition and made 6 dozen
    for both holidays. They were called “One Hour Buttermilk Rolls” and
    they were absolutely foolproof. My nephew called them the “lip” rolls,
    because I rolled them out Parker House style (like my aunt and uncle
    taught me) and he said they looked like lips that you opened to put the
    butter in. When we would walk in the door at my husband’s family,
    everyone would start hollering, “the rolls are here!” and there would be
    a rush for the kitchen. Good memories!

    I can’t preorder, but I do plan to buy the book as soon as I am financially able…looking forward to it more than I can say!!!
    As for a gluten bread memory….I’m something of a breadaholic, so this is hard! What do I choose? Corned beef sandwiches on Rye? Croissants with chocolate? Cinnamon rolls? Maple bars? Soft pretzels? Deep dish pizza? See? Clearly I have a problem.

    If I Have to choose, I’d choose my grandpa’s famous biscuits. I remember him waking up early every time we visited and mixing up a batch of deliciousness without even looking at a recipe! I helped him sometimes, scooping flour out of the drawer he kept it in, turning the handle on the sifter, and cutting out the disks of dough. Papa’s biscuits are famous in our family. I live with him now, and he still makes them sometimes, just a few for himself. I enjoy the nostalgia of smell, but I’d love to be able to sit down and share one with him.

    I pre-ordered 2 copies of the book just now – one for myself and one for my daughter. My favorite pre-gluten-free bread memory was being able to pop open a roll of Pillsbury croissant rolls and have delicious flaky bread in just a few minutes.

    I just ordered ALL THREE Shoestring books from Amazon.com I’m not sure how to get the receipt from my email to here so I guess I’ll just give you my “pinky promise”.

    My bread memory is the cheater donuts my parents would make. Tube biscuits with a hole punched in them, deep fried and then rolled in cinnamon sugar. Cheap, easy, fabulous. Although I have to admit that your pumpkin donuts that I tried are WAY better than anything else out there. My kids agree.

    I’m ordering my copy of the book later this week. I can’t wait to get my hands on it and look at all the recipes! I have so many good gluten bread memories. My top two would have to be: the best combination pizza I’ve ever eaten, which I only got to eat once before my celiac diagnosis, and homemade navy bean soup in a hot sourdough bread bowl. I hope to recreate those memories with some gluten-free alternatives.

  • Paula Kurth
    November 20, 2013 at 11:13 AM

    What I miss most, pre-gluten free, is the smell of challah (braided egg bread) baking in my home. And of course the first bite of warm bread, fresh from the oven.

    Hi there! I plan to order the book very soon as a holiday present for myself. I also entered the contest for the Kitchenaid mixer where I said I plan to give the book to my mom to give to me. :)

    My favorite gluten bread memory is pan de jamon (ham bread in Spanish). My family is from Venezuela, and that bread is made during the Christmas season. It begins with a pizza dough rolled into a rectangular shape, topped with ham and raisins. You roll the bread from one short end to the other, pinch it shut, brush the top with melted butter, and bake. Once it’s cooled you slice it and serve. The saltiness from the ham and the sweetness from the raisins is so delicious and wonderful, and it disappears in a flash. Now that I am gluten and dairy free, I definitely want to try to make a modified version of pan de jamon. I hope it goes well!

    I’m pre-ordering my copy today! I was waiting to ask for it for Christmas… But I can’t wait that long to get it! I have a lot of favourite bread memories… but mostly they involve fresh cinnamon buns at the cabin, eating baguettes in Paris, and coming home in the winter to bowls of soup/chilli/stew that my mom had made, accompanied by fresh bread.. the house always smelled delicious!

    I haven’t attempted much gluten-free bread yet since I don’t have a good mixer, but I’d love to have a copy of the book. The breads I miss most are dinner rolls that are fresh out of the oven, all yeasty and toasty warm that melt in your mouth.

    I have been counting down the days until this book comes out since first hearing about it what seems to be a lifetime ago! My favorite bread memory is probably eating a really thick bread at a restaurant. I don’t know exactly what it was but I swear I ate 5 baskets of that stuff! I teach Gluten Free Community Education classes and I always bring your books and highly recommend everyone order them! I really hope that the book gets here on the 12th ;) (A lot of times with Amazon prime preorders it comes the day its available not 2 days later!)

I would make it for my children’s class at school. Kids loved to play with it and enjoyed watching it rise. The smell as you played with your kids waiting for it to come out of the oven was divine! I am so looking forward to your book coming out! You have amazing recipes and they are sensible and easy to follow! Good luck to me! and everyone who entered. :) Email me at : “richlisaradatyahoodotcom”

    My best bread recipe is making bread on a Friday night after working hard all week. I not only kneaded the dough but kneaded the knots out of my shoulders at the same time. We live in a very old house and it is quite hard to get bread to rise without a lot of effort and wasted energy so the proofer would be an incredible asset and it is from Massachusetts my home state.

  • Donna
    November 20, 2013 at 12:28 AM

    Wow! To be able to make bread that I can count on the turn out well every time? That would be so good! I’d love a soft hamburger bun, some cinnamon rolls, and how about crescent rolls to use for pigs in a blanket? It’d be wonderful! Will have to keep this in mind for Christmas…

    I can’t order anything till December. I have your other books and am looking forward to getting this one. My mother was the world’s best cook (of course that is the opinion of all her children and countless others who ate her wonderful meals. I loved it when she baked bread and spent hours watching her cook and sampling everything. Life was good back then and even though I am pushing the big 80 I love to bake and want so much to master GF bread. Looking forward to this next achievement so I can stop buying GF bread from the freezer section. Bread that tastes good and doesn’t fall apart is what I want more than anything.

    My favorite bread memory was making loaves of white bread. I would make them in my moms kitchen, filling it with the smell of baking bread. I would braid them so they would look pretty. Once they were out of the oven, we would cover them in butter and eat to our hearts content :)

I am planning on getting her this bread book and some BB GF flour for XMas (Mom, you better not be reading this).

It was studded with candied fruits.

    If you were to come bake in my kitchen, you would also need to take a boat, as we live on an island!

    I haven’t yet ordered the cookbook but I plan to this weekend. Honestly. I’m so excited to start baking bread I can’t handle it. Being gf in college means I don’t have a lot of options, and I daydream about bread daily. When my bread craving is really bad I will eat like half a loaf of Udis but it isn’t the same thing as fresh bread. My bread memory would have to be when I went on vacation to europe with my parents, and we would eat amazing types of bread all the time. Breakfast, dinner, as a snack. A hot piece of bread with some butter is my idea of heaven!

    I have been gluten free for just over a year. When my children were at home I made bread 6 loaves at a time. Losing bread doesn’t bother me as much as the speciality items such as rolls and pastries. I saw a picture of dinner rolls last Christmas and literally drooled on myself. Thank goodness I was at home alone!!!

    When I was in college, I worked at a bagel bakery. I pretty much lived on day-old bagels for 2 years. Little did I know that my steady diet of beer, bagels, and mac and cheese was making me miserable! I sure miss a good bagel. I haven’t been able to create or find a decent GF bagel substitute. I am hoping your book will remedy that for me.

    I will order your book as soon as it becomes available in IBooks. I miss mostly the yeast dinner rolls that our family always had at holiday dinners. They always turn out so big and are real crusty on the bottom you could turn them into little sliders or just sandwiches. Oh how I miss them so. I also miss a good ole crusty slice of pizza. I’m not only allergic to wheat but to dairy as well and I’m having a hard time with missing cheese so for now pizza is out.

    Since my 3 1/2 year-old daughter was diagnosed with Celiac a week ago I’ve never bought so many different types of flours: Brown Rice Flour, Sweet White Rice Flour, Tapioca Flour, Potato Flour, Coconut Flour, Oat Flour, Xanthan Gum, Guar Gum etc. and it is so overwhelming and I”ve also bought the various pre-mixed flours, Pamela’s baking mix, Namaste Flour mix, King Arthur Gluten Free Flour mix etc. I’ve baked more loaves in my life and tried both oven and a fancy high end bread machine (so far the oven works best since so much pre-mixing is required). My daughter used to love going with me to the bakery and getting a baguette and in general LOVES bread. So far all the breads have been more “cake” than bread and I am really eager to receive you new book and master this for a lifetime of enjoying GOOD gluten free bread.

We recently found out he is also allergic to soy and oat so he cannot have most prepackaged foods.I now have to learn to make most of these “convenience foods” that most people take for granted.

My mom always made sweet breads for the holidays – about 4 different ones. So loved them. Would eat them Thanksgiving and Christmas mornings with cream cheese. Very yummy. Starting to try to re- create them gluten free. Thanks for your help! the other memory is of the most tender, sweet homemade crescent rolls my aunt always brought to the holiday gatherings. Melt in your mouth they were.

    Of course I am getting the Bakes Bread book I am just waiting for my next paycheck, I already have it sitting in my cart on Amazon waiting for payday(happy day). I already have your first cookbook and the quick and easy cookbook and I cannot live with out either. My bread memory is of a bakery/restaurant in Philadelphia called Ridelaubs from almost 15years ago. I was a waitress in the mornings and worked in the bakery in the afternoons. I loved it all: chocolate chip marbled cheesecakes, italian cookies, strawberry creamcheese filled croissants. But the thing I miss most, the bread pudding. Made from the weeks leftover doughnuts and danishes chopped up mixed with eggs and stuff, baked to a delish fruity, chocolaty perfection and dusted with confectioners sugar. The restaurant is gone, torn down to make room for upscale condos, but I can still smell that Sunday morning kitchen of multiple hotel pans of the chocolate doughnut concotion, warm and just pulled from the oven, drenching the air. Wah. lol junquemahl@gmail.com

It was very traumatic for him to not be able to have bread . Than when we bought some from the store it was so horrible that he cried . I am so grateful for people like you on a mission for good food . I am on a mission as his mother to make eating enjoyable once again .

    Hello! See my proof of purchase for the new amazing bread cookbook! I am sure it will proof be loafs of fun (okay that’s enough).
    Here is my bread memory: I grew up outside of Chicago in a close-in suburb, and my parents both worked downtown. So, I spent my days (and we shared a house with) my Czech grandmother, Dorothy. She had a catering business, so her basement actually was a fully functioning kitchen for baking all of her goodies. I very fondly remember going down to the kitchen as a little kid to see her working on her big flour-coated work table, scooping heaps of flour out of large plastic containers, and can almost still taste the gluten in the air. She taught me the foundations of cooking and baking from such a young age, which I credit to being the number one reason why I could get over the challenges of cooking gluten free. The one thing I can not get to be just like hers, however, are her kolaches. Someday I will do her justice, but I’m sure if she was still around she would tell me that it’s not the same as they make in the old country :)

      Definitely ordering the book off of Amazon! And my favorite bread memory is when I was younger and would walk home from school. My mom would make bread every two weeks or so, and on the days that she did, you could smell it before you even walked in the door. That fresh yeast and wheat smell filled the air. The best part was that she would attach these small little pieces of dough to the end of the loaves that we called “pull-aparts”. This was the first part that you ate fresh out of the oven, the part that had the most crunch. I can still close my eyes and smell that smell. :)

    I have your newest book on my christmas wish list, and my husband PROMISED me that Santa would bring it!! I have your two others already!! I am really looking forward to trying the Braided Challah recipe and hoagie rolls!! As a kid, we always had Challah bread on sundays with BBQ ribs – We always called it egg bread. I have never liked the crust, so I would pull a piece off, take all the fluffy bread out of the center then give my dad the crust bubble. I dearly love challah, and haven’t had it since I had to go GF. I am excited to try the recipe and have my parents up for a BBQ dinner, and I will even eat the crust this time!! Another great memory is making spaghetti sandwiches, which is something I haven’t done since going GF either. I would always take 2 pieces of french bread, and the last few bites of spaghetti from my bowl and make a sandwich. Call me crazy, but it’s YUMMY and something I miss since the GF french bread at the stores isn’t good! Both are sunday family traditions…..

    My dad and I used to get buttered Portuguese rolls at the deli on the corner of our street. They were bread heaven, and it was our fun ritual whenever we were taking a day trip somewhere, like to visit my Grandma. We’d get one buttered roll each, and then get a bag of an additional half a dozen to eat, um, later. ;) These days, I use your recips on my blog, http://ayearinthelifeofakitchen.blogspot.com, and when writing a gluten-free food blog for http://hudsonvalleyparentblog.wordpress.com/2013/11/17/a-year-in-the-life-of-the-kitchen-pumpkin-scones/. Can’t wait for the new book!! stephanielsandler@gmail.com

    I preordered my book. Now I must tell you about the best sandwich (now a sand-wish)that I ever had….
    We go to the local farmers market every weekend…. and one of the vendors sells the most lucious stuffed goat cheese. It is stuffed with just a little olive oil, garlic, basil and oregano. I bought a loaf of fresh baked sourdough bread, stuffed goat cheese, and a large fresh German Johnson tomato…. when i got home… i sliced them all up… and put them together… OH MY! the best flavors… fresh and savory. yep… a sandwish.

    I absolutely love big fluffy sweet rolls. I honestly can’t wait to get my hands on your book so I can start to experiment with it! My son is the person in my family who needs to be gluten free and one of his favorite foods (before we figured out what was wrong) was bread. He could live on it. I’ve been having a hard time finding good and true recipes for his bread now. So excited to see what recipes are all included in your book and I will definitely be using it! I haven’t pre-ordered yet, but that will come on Friday when I get paid ;)

    I don’t know if I can pick just one bread memory!! My top three, though, might be French baguettes, English muffins and biscuits. The French baguette memory is all the times my husband and I would make an easy and romantic dinner of a baguette, yummy cheese, salami, grapes, wine, etc. Gluten bread now gives me migraines, stomach issues, etc. NOT romantic!!

    I cant wait to make it all! My bread memories are so many. However, my favorite are with both my grandmothers. 1) making cinnamon rolls with my grandmother with left over pie dough is the best! I miss her! I learned to bake with her! 2) My mother and I would take my other grandmother to olive garden and my grandmother loves the bread sticks and so do I! We would eat about 20 of them! :) Wonderful times with both grandmothers and mother! Here is my proof, I promise I am getting it:)

Not just the gf folks! I’ve used you’re recipes more than anyone’s and I will continue to do so. My big plan is to eventually get a small shop so that I can produce more and more. I do everything with a hand mixer and well, I’m not making near as much as I should considering all the time I put in. I’m so excited for the book!,

    Ohhhh the memories with my daughter… sitting in France or Costa Rica or anywhere in the world eating freshly made bread and cheese for every meal because that’s all I could afford on such trips but honestly it’s all I wanted. Traveling sans gluten has never been that easy.. I do miss you bread :( I miss traveling the world with you.

    Can’t wait to check the book out at B&N and pick it up for purchase! I really miss the texture of the crusty outside of bread/rolls and soft inside. Plus the aroma of the bread as you pull it apart and the scent just spills out and you want to get all that smell into your nose. It’s been absent in life as overly processed GF foods from the store don’t offer that. Thanks for offering up such a great looking reference for those that have to utilize this way of eating for survival!

My hot Cinnamon Rolls in the morning seem to be the thing my husbands misses the most. I’ve only started Gluten Free Baking in the last 6 months and the texture of the rolls I have made has left much to be desired. I’m looking forward to trying some new recipes and finding some winning roll recipes.

    I pinky-swear that I am longing to order your bread book… I love baking and cooking but I just recently had to do the gluten-free switch while baking and cooking from scratch for my family of eight and it has been almost completely overwhelming to figure out what to make that I can eat too. There are times I am so discouraged by this new lifestyle that requires such a complete change. My favorite memory of bread is at my Grandparent’s home… We ate there every week and there were always several types of bread to choose from with a nice big smear of butter… Yummm! Thank you for the opportunity!

    I am a law student living on a very low budget. I live off of loans and
    am over a hundred thousand in debt already. I cannot afford to buy the
    book BUT I have only asked for two things for Christmas this year (so
    far) and this is one. Or, if I get money for Christmas I will buy this
    book. I absolutely love to bake. In the stress of law school it truly is

    a great stress relief. It calms my nerves after a long day. I do not
    have a mixer or a bread maker or any main bread utensils for that
    matter. I plan
    to make Cinnamon Sticky Buns. The thing I miss most before being gluten
    free is my aunt’s Extreme Cinnamon Orange Zest Swirl Bread. I absolutely
    love it toasted with melted butter. Mmm. I would love to make this
    myself at home with this bread kit and bread recipe book! I would be
    absolutely thrilled if I won this and I am seriously considering buying
    this book! I would love to have a mixer so I can continue my baking :)

    Another
    favorite bread memory of mine is eating white toast perfectly crisped
    with butter and my grandma’s homemade strawberry jam. And, of course,
    baking homemade banana cream pie with my mom every Christmas Eve!

    I am seriously thinking about getting this book!!!! My best bread memory is one that my husband and I created on our first holiday together and have passed down to the kids who now demand it every year on Christmas and Easter- We make cinnamon rolls. (which of course for the past year and half I haven’t been able to partake but glad they enjoy it! ) Also I have one other fond memory of working with the first communion classes for church and they make their special bread from scratch and can decorate it (cross made of bread on top, intitial, etc ) I will not be able to have a piece of my daughters when she does hers so we will have to make a special GF one here :)

I was in the Canary Islands and the local farmer’s market had this bread–deep yellow in color, full of eggs and butter, and layered with caramelized onions and garlic. I could eat a whole loaf while walking through the market. I have dreams about that bread…

    I have been looking forward to this book release since you first announced you were writing it. I am hoping to get this book as a Christmas present from my in-laws with a few new pans! I remember the taste of Rye bread! I loved Reuben sandwiches and so much more. Honestly, I have tried so hard not to remember what “bread” tastes like because it is too sad! I am so looking forward to your new book. I tried to buy it a month ago and was disappointed that it wasn’t out yet!!

    I pinky swear I will be getting your bread cookbook. My best bread memory was of a Polish neighbor baking homemade yeast bread for her family every single week. The smell in her house was so wonderful. I grew up making homemade bread as a treat for family and friends. Holidays I always made homemade rolls. Since having to go gluten free I am struggling with bread making other than quick breads… the only thing I have asked my family for this Christmas is your newest BREAD Baking book…..

  • November 19, 2013 at 3:20 AM

    A bread memory: the first time I made chili and cornbread for myself in college, using the family cornbread recipe, and my roommate said, “You’re putting the chili ON the cornbread?” “Obviously,” I said, “that’s how you eat it,” then crumbled a little more on top with cheese. It was a taste of home away from home, and when my roommate tried it, he totally got it. Now I just have to get the gluten-free version right. Congrats on your book! As you’ll see in the image, I’ve also recently ordered a large amount of sorghum flour, because that’s how I “roll.”

    Hi! I’m new to your site. Began by searching for gluten free gingerbread cake. Made it, was delicious and I ordered all three books today! (Order Number: 106-4579383-5201829 via Amazon). I used to bake ALL the time – goodies to take to work – and now that I can’t taste “normal” stuff, I just don’t bake as often. This will be fun!
    As far as my “best bread memory”… sooo many! Pizza with thick and chewy crust is a definite miss; freshly baked rolls at Thanksgiving… ahhhhh; and a cheesesteak sandwich on a crusty Italian loaf. My mouth is watering now. Great…. I am so looking forward to trying your recipes and my hope is that others in my household will eat what I make and not miss the gluten! A pre-thank you on the pre-order! And a huge thank you for the gingerbread cake recipe! Take care!

    I pinky swear I will buy the book when it comes out in iBooks. Unfortunately I live in a small apt and there’s absolutely no room on any of my 3 full size book shelves or under my bed- so I’ve resolved to limit myself to digital books. For now I’m going to look for the quick and easy book in the iBook store (it will just have to hold me over until the new book comes out!)

    My best bread memories are “taste testing” my Dad’s homemade breads (unfortunately not gluten free) and eating fresh rolls at Grandpa’s house with “stinky feet” sharp cheese slices in the middle. Just a simple cheese sandwitch but oh so yummy with fresh rolls! I so miss fresh bagels & Dad’s homemade pizza too. I don’t absolutely need a gluten free diet but feel better on it and my family absolutely needs to be gluten free – NO CHEATING! Both of my parents are great bakers, but they don’t have experience with gluten free baking. I want to share these FUN foods with my 7 year old son. My son is legally deaf-blind with multiple handicaps, epilepsy and Celiac disease. My son has just moved up to eating solid foods after 6 years of weekly feeding therapy, and the GI doctor saying “if he so much as looses a pound we’ll have to go in for emergency surgery for a feeding tube.” He is now a healthy weight and the GI doctor says “whatever you’re doing it’s working- so keep doing it!” My son is proof of the benefits of a good diet and a diet free of foods that cause sensitivity. My hubby and step-daughter also have Celiac. I will enjoy making new gluten free bread memories with my family, I’m so looking forward to it!
    One last thing- I just have to share a pic of my son gobbling up the last bite of my first gluten free on a shoestring recipe I made today- Cranberry Bread :-) Yummy! He was pulling my hand to ask for more as I sit here typing…

    My best Bread Memory: going downtown with my Nana to a bakery that featured all of her favourite from home (Britain), breathing in the smells of fresh baked bread & rolls (and meat pies, mincemeat tarts, doughnuts, etc.) and popping into Marks & Spencer for her & my Papa’s favourite biscuits & marzipan cookies. Nothing beats those moments with her – such great memories now that she’s been gone so long – not even getting to sample those goods when we got back to her home.

    Thanks for this opportunity and such an amazing blog!

    My Gluten-Free on a Showstring just arrived today(Amazon.com). When I ordered I thought I was ordering ‘Bakes Bread’. Will order it also….PROMISE!
    I just spent 5 days in the hospital with an exacerbation of asthma. I have dealt with other serious inflammatory issues over the last five years. During last weeks hospitalization I was told that I would benefit greatly from a gluten-free, dairy free diet. I have toyed with the idea before, but since I bake our bread, biscuits, and everything else from scratch, I find the mere thought extremely daunting. With a family of six who loves fresh sourdough, white bread, and biscuits and gravy I am excited about your bread book. I can already tell from Gluten-Free on a Shoestring that this is doable. Thank you so much! Excited about finding wellness and good food in your book.

    I never do this blog posting stuff, but I’m gonna give it a try… I’ll have to pinkie swear on the pre-order because I can’t hardly find my way out of a paper bag let alone “screen grab my electronic order”. My favorite bread memory is that of my mother making what she called sticky buns. Butter, brown sugar and chopped pecans in the bottom of cupcakes pans topped with the BEST homemade roll dough that had cinnamon and sugar and raisins wrapped inside. Baked to golden brown and then tipped out onto a cookie sheet for the gooey topping to drizzle down the sides. Mom passed away almost 13 years ago and just thinking about her makes me cry because I still miss her. We’d sit and drink coffee and eat those wonderful rolls and talk for hours. What I wouldn’t give for just one more of those afternoons. I still use her cupcake pan (with liners of course since they’ve been super contaminated) when I bake cupcakes just to feel close to her.

      What a lucky mom you had, to have a loving daughter like you, Janet. And the legacy she left is clear, and so loving. Your memory is exactly why I strive to make nostalgic, “normal” foods, you know? Exactly like you said. Just like that. xo Nicole

    I long for GF yeast rolls for those big family dinners — you know the ones, shiny and as big as a baby’s head? I bake for my grandson and granddaughter who have eczema — and they LOVE your easy peasy white bread. I cannot WAIT to open the new book and get crackin’ on new deliciousness for them (and I might snitch a few tastes. You know, to make sure it’s okay (wink)). I bought one book for my daughter (attached) and I will be buying one for myself, as well. I prefer the Kindle Edition because, well, I’m messy in the kitchen. There, I said it. We can move on, now. I CAN’T WAIT for the book — even if I don’t win the bountiful goodness in this contest. You’re the best. Love you. Mean it.

      I have been looking forward to this book release since you first announced you were writing it. I am hoping to get this book as a Christmas present from my in-laws with a few new pans! I remember the taste of Rye bread! I loved Reuben sandwiches and so much more. Honestly, I have tried so hard not to remember what “bread” tastes like because it is too sad! I am so looking forward to your new book. I tried to buy it a month ago and was disappointed that it wasn’t out yet!!

      A bread memory: the first time I made chili and cornbread for myself in college, using the family cornbread recipe, and my roommate said, “You’re putting the chili ON the cornbread?” “Obviously,” I said, “that’s how you eat it,” then crumbled a little more on top with cheese. It was a taste of home away from home, and when my roommate tried it, he totally got it. Now I just have to get the gluten-free version right. Congrats on your book! As you’ll see in the image, I’ve also recently ordered a large amount of sorghum flour, because that’s how I “roll.”

    The book is on my wishlist, and I’m pretty sure my mom has it preordered for me for Christmas. :) I am not gluten free, so I still get to sneak out and grab bread every now and again, but our house is gluten free to keep our toddler safe. She was diagnosed at 1 year with celiac. Before her diagnosis, I would bake our family bread every Sunday for the week. That is my favorite memory, and one I’d love to recreate in a way that would be safe for her.

    I am so excited, I just ordered your bread book! I have not had good luck making great GF bread in the 4 years since we have been GF…although bless my kids hearts, they eat it anyway :)
    So many bread memories as all our families ‘events’ are centered around food!
    One particular favorite is from over 20 years ago when I was in Binghampton, New York for graduate school. We would take a break from studies/lab work and walk down the street to the Butterfly Bakery. My mouth still drools when I think of their Everything Bagel…the quintessential, amazing New York Bagel.

    I have been begging for the book since you announced it. If it doesn’t end up under my tree, it will be ordered before the day is up! I have both of your other cookbooks and I use them all the time! My favorite bread memory is seeded yeast rolls that I would mix up and then pop into the freezer and pull out to bake when I needed them. I also love a good sourdough bread that you can make into the best gooey grilled cheese ever! Oh and everything bagels. My attempts at gluten free bread have been flops. But since I know from experience that ALL your recipes have turned out great when I make them, I am ready to give bread another shot. I’m so excited to get the book!

    Hopefully I will get the book for Christmas. It is on my wish list (along with your two other books). I have so many bread memories. My mom used to teach bread making–bread in a bag. Did anyone else ever do this? You would mix everything in a huge ziplock bag, so that you didn’t actually have to touch the dough. You let it rise in there–just take it out to bake it. We used to make a great honey oatmeal bread, sometimes forming it into rolls. They would smell so good in the oven and then right after taking them out of the oven while they are still really hot, I slathered Cabot butter and homemade strawberry jam on the steaming center. I miss bread and butter and jam and bread that doesn’t turn to mush in your mouth. I just took a gluten free yeast bread class at King Arthur Flour in Norwich, VT and was so hopeful that the bread we would make in the class would be better than the usual gf white bread. Nope, not good. I cut it up and turned it into croutons. I can’t wait to see what you come up with this to improve this state of affairs, Nicole!

    I saw on the index of your book that there is a recepie for brioche ….yeah! I am totally getting your book…anything for a good gluteen free fluffy bread.

    I am considering ordering the book. My favorite bread is garlic bread with an italian meal. Dipping it into the sauce. I also miss making bread that jelly and jam stay on. My daughter tries to make PBJ and by the time lunch comes all of the jelly is in the bag making it a mess to try to eat.

    I am looking forward to exploring with the new bread book. I haven’t pre-ordered but it is on my annual Xmas Wishlist that goes out to friends and family. My fondest bread memories are of when I was a child. On snow days my mother who worked at Fantini Bakery in Haverhill, Mass would bring me in with her and I remember that there was a spot where the loaves that didn’t come out just right went. I could be found pulling the still hot inside of the loaves out and eating it. I have loved bread my entire life but that is my earliest memory of absolute bread heaven!

    Nicole. Since my daughter was diagnosed with celiac disease 3 years ago we have not had bread cookes biscuits or cake. I am a faithful follower of the blog and have both of your prior cookbooks. I wish I could say I had baked from them but am so intimidated by failure I have not tried any recipes I am so looking forward to the new book with step by step directions and photos. (I guess that is as close as I can get to having you come bake with me! LOL! ) Armed with your new book I hope to finally garner up enough guts to make warm flskeybiscuits and BREAD. Oh wonderfully warm buttery bread and ROLLS!!!! And oh how the memories of gluteny yumminess makes me salivate at the thought of your new book making it all possible again. I will be ordering your book. I think with this one I just may take the plunge into living again. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your blog and your books and your tenaciousness (or should it be tenacity? ?) to overcome failure so we don’t have to.

    Hi Nicole, I pre-ordered the book and I am so excited to receive it. I’ll be away Thanksgiving week and am looking forward to seeing that Amazon package on my porch when we return from a mini-vacation in the mountains.

    I have so many bread memories I just don’t know where to start. Good bread was the foundation of every meal ever served when I was a kid. My mom’s family is from Newark, NJ, and you just could not get better Portuguese rolls than from the Portuguese deli up the alley from her house. We’d spend Saturday afternoons in her tiny kitchen, eating ham sammies on those crispy, pillowy rolls, and listening to her stories about life in Poland and immigrating during the Depression. That’s a good memory.

    But my best bread memory? It’s a recent one, and so sad because it was shortly after I perfected baking that perfect loaf of country sourdough that I found out that gluten doesn’t like me very much. I was pregnant with our third child and having great success baking beautiful artisanal loaves of peasant bread and pumperknickel bread, crisp pizza crust, sandwich loaves better than Wonder Bread, seeded buns – you get the gist. But sourdough was something I just never perfected, until I read Chad Robertson’s Tartine Bread and patiently waited for my starter to blossom. The first loaf I baked was perfect, I even wrote a three-part blog post about it. I couldn’t get enough of it. It was a crusty, chewy, lovely loaf that just satisfied, and I could make it at home and fill my house with the smell of fresh bread, and kiss my bakery goodbye. I baked and baked and ate and ate. It was bread love like I’d never known before. But after our third child was born, I started to get those phantom symptoms of gluten intolerance, and after much trial and error and illness, I realized gluten was a devil for me. I had to say good-bye forever to my recently perfected crusty, chewy, lovely loaves of bread, for my health and that of our little one, who can’t seem to tolerate wheat at all. While it isn’t a life or death issue for me to eat gluten, I’m certainly better off without it, and a good loaf of bread, while not an everyday indulgence for me, is certainly something I’m not willing to get sick over for days.

    I’ve been baking from your blog for months now and it’s such a salvation for me. I eat mostly paleo but now and then you just want a sandwich, you know? And now I can, and from the looks of your TOC and the book preview, I can go beyond a white sandwich loaf and have brioche buns for a hamburger or a mock rye for a reuben or lovely white rolls to accompany our Viglia dinner. Thank you so much for this book, I haven’t read it yet but I know it will be a knock-out. I haven’t had one of your recipes fail yet.

    I remember going to Old Salem on a field trip and bringing home a loaf of bread to my mom, except I couldn’t resist and kept pinching off little pieces until I basically handed my mom her gift of a hollowed out shell of bread. I miss delicious bread that is that tempting!

    Love your last cookbook and eagerly awaiting this one

    I placed my order in the beginning of November, and I honestly can’t wait. Baking bread intimidates me, but you make baking gluten free seem easier than with gluten, so I’m super excited. I was diagnosed with Celiac’s in February and at first it seemed like a prison sentence, but when I found your recipes I realized that baking could be fun again. And I thank you from the bottom of my heart every day for being here for those of us in the Celiac community.

    I lived in Paris, France for four months in college during a semester studying abroad. I miss the classic French baguettes with their tough outer shell and warm spongey inside. Somehow those baguettes made everything taste absolutely delicious (even tomatoes and I decidedly hate tomatoes). Sometimes I daydream of eating a baguette and a nice Brie or Roquefort. Good memories. :]

    Thank you again. You’re a wonderful person. :D

    Almost every Sunday my sisters and I (5 in total) would spend the morning working on a monkey bread assembly. One would ball the dough, with the rest finishing it off in the butter, cinnamon, and sugar before putting the dough balls into the pan. Thirty minutes later we would sit at the table enjoying the fruits of our labor, licking the sticky sugar off of our fingers. To me baking was the bond that my sisters and myself shared, and with the recipes that are given on Gluten-free on a Shoestring, I am able to bake things with them that I can actually eat.

    I’ve put your book on my birthday wish list (Dec 14!). The memory isn’t mine, but my 5 year old daughter’s. We recently discovered that she’s gluten intolerant. She told me the thing she misses the most is having an Auntie Anne’s pretzel with her Nana when we visit them in Palm Springs. While we can still visit Nana, she’s a little glum that a trip to the mall for a pretzel won’t round it out. I’d love to have a few more recipes for her under my belt. Fingers crossed that I win this book. And if not, I’m hoping the birthday fairy (aka my husband) will give me a copy. :)

    Hot. Buttered. Bagels. My sister and I would be allowed to walk to the bagel store a few blocks from our house in Staten Island, NY. It is a memory of independence, autonomy and of course warm bagels dripping with melty butter. They would wrap it in wax paper and toss it in a brown paper bag and inevitable the bag would be quickly stained with the drippy buttery mess. My bagel of choice was a poppy…or even an egg poppy. I had not yet learned the pleasures of onion bagels or cream cheese. We’ usually complete the meal with a bag of cheetos and a can of coke. Then we’d walk home and enjoy the meal on the front stoop playing Mad Libs as the sun went down.

    I remember balling up Wonder Bread, kneading it into little mushy balls and eating it. It tasted fantastic. Now the idea is kind of repulsive. A more updated bread memory would be the Original Ray’s Pizza in NY-best pizza ever. Ack, I’m on a roll, there was this bagel place, also in NY-best bagels in the world-I grew up with them. I still love bagels and pizza and am in search of ones that actually taste good enough to create better memories. My email is margschultz at gmail dot com.

    I’m looking forward to receiving this book in the mail. My celiac son is now a senior in high school and he’s getting ready to move on to college. I am hoping that between now and then he will learn how to bake (he hates store bought GF hamburger buns), and at the same time we will make some good memories together similar to the memories I have of baking with my mom. She didn’t really bake cookies all that often, but she did bake a great herb bread. I remember the first time she made it. It made the whole house smell warm, buttery, and delicious. I remember being so surprised that the loaf was round. She taught me how to make the bread, and I that is the bread I think I miss the most. It made the house smell so good, kneading the dough was so relaxing, and the reward for all the hard work was eating a warm piece of the bread smeared with butter.

    Hi Nicole!

    The screen capture is from my Orders page on Amazon.com. As you can see by the open tabs, I am obsessing already about baking bread with the recipes in Bakes Bread.

    My favorite memory.

    I had never baked bread before, and I had decided to try baking bread for the first time. It was an Oatmeal Bread (that is to say, a yeast bread containing oatmeal as well as all purpose wheat flour) from the Joy of Cooking cookbook. I didn’t even have a thermometer for testing the water temperature, but I still went at it, and I had a blast. The kitchen turned into an absolute disaster, with flour everywhere, but it smelled lovely and the loaves came out perfect. Oh, that first slice of the still warm bread was pure comfort in my mouth.

    My family raved about that bread, all enjoyed eating it so much that it was on the food request list at every gathering or special occasion.

    Even more than the eating, I enjoyed baking it and I miss that. It was a sensory delight from beginning to end, the aromas and the textures, not to mention the sight of those finished loaves. I felt so accomplished.

    I long to have those experiences again. And it is my hope that with your cookbook I can recapture that again, to the delight of me and my family and friends. My 28 year old son still tells me, 20 years after that first loaf, “I miss your bread, Mom.” I have faith that this Bakes Bread cookbook will bring me, and my family, back to those days.

    Thank you so much!

    I begged my mom to pre-order me a copy for my birthday (which she did, and has it coming straight to me as soon as it is shipped) – does that count? I don’t think I have a receipt….

    My bread recipe memory – I used to LOVE making bread from scratch. I would make a beautiful honey wheat loaf several times a month and on special occasions I’d make a cinnamon swirl loaf that was divine. It sounds ridiculous, but kneading bread was one of my favorite things. =P

    My favorite memory is slicing a new loaf of bread and spreading butter on that elastic slice without it falling apart or tearing. I have been resigned to GF bread that is more gelatinous in consistency than the elasticity that gluten gives to regular bread. I’d love to win a copy of the book–seconds make fabulous gifts! Plus, all of the wonderful gadgets would be helpful and very much appreciated. I ordered the newest book in July (I have the first two) and was really excited about the possibilities. Have been really disappointed with the second notification from Amazon of the delay (part of that message is copied below for my “proof of purchase.”)

    I cannot say THANK YOU! enough for all of the recipes, tips, and trials you have given me! I found out I was Gluten Intolerant a little over 2 years ago. For me, I went through various stages of “I can handle this” to “OMG what am I going to do!” I have grown up in the kitchen with my mother and grandmother and have been taught the art of cooking. I pride myself on my food, and according to the friends and family who eat my food, they agree. My family is Sicilian (no, not Italian, there IS a difference) and German. We love our breads, pastas, hard rolls, tortes, and cannoli. It has ALWAYS been about the food in my family and we serve some very traditional dishes at holidays and birthdays. To be honest with you, picking one thing that I miss the most is a tough one. I have grown up learning how to make my family’s secret recipes for Cannoli, home made pizza dough, and delicious German tortes. So I guess I would have to say that those three are at the top. Since I was old enough to stand on my own, Christmas Eve has been about making pizza dough. My mother, grandmother, and I would wake early, mix the dough, and wait for it to rise. I would then be the one who would punch it down, at least 3 more times until it was ready to turn into pizza. This is the BEST pizza ever, and I will have to admit, Christmas eve is not the same since I have gone GFree…we have found a great recipe (thanks again) but tradition is tradition. Sometimes I feel that I have disappointed my mother by coming to this diagnosis, but now, with all of your tips, and this upcoming book, I feel that I might be able to adapt these family recipes to be able to eat them again. On most days, I don’t notice that I’m GFree, but I know my husband does. And I’m sure he would say Thank you to you too for helping him realize that Gluten Free food CAN be just as delicious (sometimes more so) as glutinous. Whenever I pull a recipe from your site he has such high praises. For me (I should say us), finding you has given me hope for my cooking future and has brought my family joy in food again. You have been a true help and We THANK YOU from the bottoms of our stomachs (and hearts)
    Salute & Prost!

I am from NJ and nothing beats a fresh out of the oven jersey bagel especially with Taylor Ham, Egg and Cheese.

    The only reason I haven’t preordered it is that it is on my Christmas list and I hoping someone will get it for me—that is, if I can wait until Christmas!

    My bread memory is croissants! They were my favorite indulgence when used as the bread for a sandwich–especially those at the little french cafe near where I grew up. I still have not found any I truly like, and my few attempts and recreating them have been sub-par :/ Strangely crunchy, not soft at all! Naan and bagels are close seconds, though I now have your Naan recipe to answer my cravings!

    My favorite bread memory is pulling loaves of my grandmother’s bread from the oven, barely waiting to slice it and slather it with butter. Best treat ever! I used her recipe right up to the time I could not eat wheat anymore.

    Hmm, I thought I had put my promise on here but I dont see it. :(
    Anyway, I reserved my copy via Amazon and here’s some proof of it as the shipping date has been altered.

    Hello,
    We’re writing about the order you placed on July 23, 2013 (Order# 105-3402042-9904232). Unfortunately, the release date for the item(s) listed below has changed, and we need to provide you with a new delivery estimate based on the new release date:

    Hunn, Nicole “Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread: (Biscuits, Bagels, Buns, and More)”

    Yeah, I was so excited about it that I preordered as soon as I found out about it. :)

    My favourite bread memory is of when I was a child. We attended VBS at the nearby Mennonite church that sent people out to gather up the kids in the community. We went to this one set in the theme of Jerusalem BC time.
    We all were given the ingredients to make Amish yeast bread which was this fluffy white loaf with a sweet taste to it. We all took part in mixing everything together, punching the loaf down when it was time, and then sending it off to be baked. After the bread had cooled, they brought it to us in a cloth lined basket and served it with some handmade butter. As we bit into the bread, we were rewarded with this heavenly taste and aroma. After savoring every bite, and getting seconds, we found ourselves filled with great sorrow as the loaf was all gone and we had to wait until the next day for the time we could make bread. It was the best bread I have ever had and it will forever stay with me. That day at VBS instilled in me a love to bake. :)

    I’ve got your other books, I’ll be getting this one too! When we go out to eat at one of our favorite restaurants, I really miss the sourdough bread, dipped in oil and spices. I sometimes bring some GF bread with me, but its just not the same. And pizza – real pizza. Most everything else, I’ve found pretty good substitutes that keep me content. : )

  • Lacey

    Nicole – I can’t wait for my book to arrive! I love bread and I haven’t found many GF breads that are worth eating. A few months ago my dad and I made jam from the peaches off the tree in his backyard. I have yet to actually eat the jam because I don’t want to waste good jam on bad bread. My favorite bread memory is making monkey bread with my grandma and my sister when I was younger.

    Just preordered the book. Can’t wait! I plan to use the book to teach my Celiac son how to bake GF. He is a Senior and will be taking cooking during the spring semester at his high school. I hope between now and then I can send him off the college next year prepared to cook GF for himself, and at the same time create special memories with him similar to the special memories I have of baking with my mother. I remember the first time my mother baked a round loaf of herb bread. It made the whole house warm, buttery, and full of flavor. I was surprised at seeing a round loaf of bread. When it was finished, eating just one bit was out of the question. I asked her to teach me how to make it, and she did. Eventually, she even converted the recipe so that it could be made in a bread maker when they became popular. I think it’s the bread that I miss the most. Even more so than pizza because I enjoyed everything about making it, the kneading, the way the house smelled, and of course eating it once it was finished baking. I couldn’t figure out how to take a screen shot, but I copied the image and will paste it here. I hope it works. :-)
    Thanks for all your great recipes! Leslie slmoon4@gmail.com

    Just heard of you through Mel’s blog and am excited to give you try, I’m having my mom give me the book for Christmas….does that count as a pre-order?
    What I miss most? the whole slice of pizza, not just the toppings, I like pizza with lots of sauce with that beautiful piece of bread holding it all together for me. And Sourdough! A hot slice of freshly made sourdough with butter melted across it, and my grilled turkey,avocado sandwiches on sourdough I watch my family crunch into regularly. Oh and one more – my rosemary rolls with soup or mozzarella stuffed rolls with italian dishes.

    I have the Quick and Easy cookbook, and I’m thinkig of getting this one, I’m just not ready to pre-order it :)
    I miss really good water challah, which has no egg except the wash on the outside. Hard and crusty with soft white middle. My oat challah roll recipe is good, but nothing comes close to that……
    And real garlic bread. I’ve got to come up with a good GF substitute for that too. Help!

    What can I say? In my gluten days ALL bread was my favorite ‘memory’! Olive Garden bread stick (s(who needs the meal?, my sisters homemade cinnamon rolls, my sisters cottage cheese dinner rolls! Marble cake.. I could go on all day but you get the picture :)

    So, I haven’t pre-ordered the book *personally* ONLY because I am a broke graduate student and have already asked for this and your earlier books for Christmas!!! (I have already been requested to make your Hawaiian rolls for Thanksgiving!!) So I promise promise PROMISE that, even if I have to use my little bit of spending money on this myself … this girl is getting to work on some breads in the kitchen ASAP! :)

    … Speaking of, I attended seminary at a Methodist institution, and they serve communion with the best of the best: Hawaiian rolls, of course! I remember such yummy goodness from my childhood — it was one of the only breads I liked. But growing up in a different denomination, it wasn’t until those chapel services that I remembered such sweet goodness (I already knew I had celiac disease by that time) and longed desperately not just to participate but (insert confession) to eat that bread! I’d watch the other students after the service rush to devour the leftovers from the altar. Absolutely not the time to be jealous, but there I was, multiple times a week!!

    Thanks Nicole for all you do and for all you share!!

    • November 14, 2013 at 9:47 AM

      Ava, did you see that Mel of Mel’s Kitchen Cafe posted the recipe for Hawaiian Rolls from my bread book TODAY? Go make it happen!

      P.S. My youngest is named Ava, so I wish you special success in grad school. It will all be worth it!

      Nicole, just checked out the recipe at Mel’s kitchen. I was wondering where you recommend purchasing the unflavored whey protein isolate & Expandex modified tapioca starch.

      Can’t find pure isolate (only bob’s red mill concentrate) on Amazon, and options are pretty limited for the Expandex. I want to be prepared with my bread flour mix when my pre-ordered book arrives. Making the rolls for thanksgiving (one of my bread memories) seems the perfect first step!

  • Cristina Garcia
    November 14, 2013 at 2:25 PM

    Nicole- I pre-ordered your book over the summer and I’ve dying to get it. I have all of your other books in a very handy place in my kitchen. Are they covered with GF flour .. yep.. and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    My favorite bread memory is just a simple PB&J sandwich with incredibly soft white wonder bread.

    no pre-frozen gf bread comes close.. well without putting it in the microwave for a few seconds but then it’s a HOT PB&J sandwich. Your Japanese Milk bread comes really close to the super soft white bread.. but still the simplicity of just making a sandwich in a few seconds is missed in my household.

    Thanks for the chance to win

    My “memory” is more a lack of memory – the memories my Celiac daughter won’t have about bread products. She was diagnosed at age 4, and sometimes I get down about the fact that she will never be able to eat naan if she travels to India, never eat a croissant or a baguette in France, never eat real bagels or rye bread in New York, and so on. Heck, we live right outside San Francisco and she’ll never have real sourdough. When we celebrate Shabbat her challah is leaden and oddly damp. Her bagels are fluffy (that’s just wrong). Her pizza crust is dry and frozen. Hopefully things will start looking up when your new book comes out…

    Oh WOW! I’m not GF – my sister avoids gluten due to a medical condition and my niece is allergic to wheat. So, I have jumped on the GF bandwagon to support them. My favorite bread memory, though, is the bagel shop near my home in Long Island. On Saturday mornings, they were so busy, the bagels would always be warm from the oven and amazing.

    I’m SO excited for your book! I can’t wait to try making GF bread for myself. It’s SO expensive to buy premade stuff, and it’s not always all that good!

    And I definitely did preorder! My email is auntlynnie@gmail.com I’ll be keeping it, because my sister doesn’t bake bread, and I want to make sure it gets used!

    So many bread memories, no wonder bread has been used as an analogy for human love and nurturing for centuries. My favourite though, is that of bread rising. My mother died when I was 13 years old. Despite being a working teacher and having cancer she remained true to her farming roots and baked all our bread on Sunday afternoons. My favourite memory is of walking in the kitchen to the dough rising in her White Pyrex bowl with green polka dots. It would sit on the warm oven, glistening with melted butter, under the glow of the overhead oven light. The smell. Counters gleaming after all the hard work was cleaned up. This memory brings to me the joy of the time that all is right with the world. I miss my Mom and look forward to Nicole’s new book so I can bring this tradition to my family with 2 of us celiacs. Thank you.

    My favorite bread memory is from my trip to Europe. I went with a large group of friends and every day the hotels we stayed at had complimentary breakfasts – and the best part was the bread! Warm, soft, and oh so delicious! And so many ways to eat it… slathered in nutella, jam, butter, with cold cuts, or just plain. Several years later, and whenever we talk about this trip, somehow, the bread comes into the conversation!

    I am so excited about your book, it will be my first one of yours but I can already tell I will be spending a lot of time baking bread!

    My favorite bread memory is crusty sourdough bread fresh from the oven. And crullers, and croissants, and deep dish pizza, and pumpkin seed sourdough bread. I started baking at 4 years old and knew gluten and what you can do with it inside and out. I kept vital wheat gluten and barley malt in the fridge for making bagels. I had AP flour, cake flour and bread flour on hand at all times.

    When I was diagnosed last year with celiac disease I suddenly couldn’t think of anything to make that was safe. Not baked goods, or anything else. I was stumped on even putting together a dinner for my family. There would be days when I could only sit and cry that I couldn’t think of anything at all that was safe to eat. I was sick of plain meat, veggies and fruit.

    When I discovered your site I was able to start experimenting and realized how many dishes and goodies were already gluten free, or could be made so with minor alterations. I gained the confidence to start baking again. I now have a collection of successful dishes and desserts (mostly thanks to you) that are so good my son is taking gluten free items to school for the bake sale, even though he is allowed to eat gluten! I can’t wait to get going on baking bread again.

    I just pre-ordered – so excited! My favorite bread memory is of my mom’s homemade dinner rolls. She made them whenever we had company or hosted a family gathering. I remember making a quick tally of the rolls in the basket as it was passed around the table to see if there would be enough for seconds.

    Memory #2….. My other favorite breakfast is Pillsbury Orange Rolls (cinnamon rolls without cinnamon and with an orange frosting).. =) Talk about another comfort food, although I’m not sure it counts as bread….

    Just in case that’s not really bread, here’s another. Nothing like baking fresh bread with your mom… The learning with measuring and following directions, the AMAZING smell as it bakes, and then fresh, warm bread with butter…. OMG, there is nothing like it! I have issues with the french bread recipe for some reason and I can’t wait to learn more from your book!!!! (I even have the bread proofer!)

    I am going to to order this…no question – I love your other two cookbooks – I almost cried when I made your biscuits the first and they were the REAL thing. Okay, not really, but they were amazing!! Can I get free shipping on a pre-order from Amazon, though? If yes, I’ll totally order now. If not, I’ll do it as soon as that option is available because there are some other goodies I want off Amazon and free shipping is the only way to go!

    My favorite bread memory – well, actually, there’s a tie is making caramel cinnamon rolls with my grandmother and seeing my dad’s eyes light up when he came home to find them! I miss them both so much. Second memory is that when I was in 4-H, I came up with this amazing recipe for black walnut cherry bread. A-MA-ZING, I tell you. I won the grand champion award. My only beef was I showed up to pick up the leftovers and the Extension staff had eaten almost all of them. I guess that just proves it was good, right? :)

    My Best Bread memory. All kinds, but especially, sourdough, baquettes, . Sopping up all the gravies and sauces.Oh and cornbread dressing. Yumm! When there wasn’t enough of what we wanted during meals, mom always said ‘Have some more bread” . As a result all 5 children love bread. Hubby is GF, and I am post gastric by-pass so we don’t consume a lot any more, but it sure would be nice to have it occassionally. Have tried several of your breads and can’t wait till December for the book.When I need something, I pull out of your books or go to your blog. Have always looved to cook, but you have sparked my creativeness when it comes to GF. Hubby is thrilled when I tell him about another recipe. Unfortunately, I can’t make enough of them for him. Now when i need a dessert for potlucks, you are my first resource. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.

    Nicole, first of all thank you for all of the work you put into your craft…I understand that you work very hard to get these recipes right and we appreciate that.
    The first recipe we tried of yours was the brown butter cornbread, which was UNBELIEVABLY good…we were sold on your gluten free ways after that recipe. So after that I knew we had to buy one of your books not only for us, but to support you.
    When I went to order a book I saw that you were coming out with a new book all about bread…which is the most important food for us personally to be gluten free and home baked.
    Our favorite bread memory is probably a nice crusty pugliese…something that you cant resist dipping into the sauce on your dinner plate or a hot bowl of homemade soup. My husbands family is Greek and a nice crusty on the outside, tender and chewy on the inside bread is the cornerstone of most meals in their culture. We haven’t really experienced that again since going gluten free. But we are looking so forward to your new book and all of the new bread memories that we will be making :) Thank you!

  • Linda Waud
    November 13, 2013 at 10:49 AM

    I’m excited about your new book and am giving my husband instructions to pre-order it for me for my birthday or Christmas. And if he doesn’t — I’ll just buy it for myself. But he really likes to eat :) so I think he will.

    The very best bread I’ve ever eaten — and I’d give anything to be able to taste it again — was made by my Grandma Grace who was born in 1897. She made bread every week and worked her magic on the dough so that everyone raved about her fabulous bread. And the fragrance while it was baking! I have always been mystified as to how my precious grandmother could work in the kitchen all day and get nothing on her apron — or herself. (It makes me wonder if I’m really related to her!) LOL Grandma Grace lived to be 104; how I miss her!

    I’ve ordered and can’t wait. I really love your other two books and this blog. The last item I made from your blog was the devils food cupcakes – sent them with my daughter to school for Halloween and everyone loved them. My favorite bread memory is just being able to cut into a freshly made loaf of bread. The texture of it, the smell, the taste. I try not to be sad and miss bread, but it happens once in a while. I’ve made a few decent gf loaves but can’t wait for your book.

    I pre-ordered ages ago, because I’m so excited for this book! I got the other two books for birthdays, but I couldn’t run the risk that I wouldn’t get this one promptly! My favorite bread memory is making this sweet pull apart bread with honey and sesame seeds with my mom when I was a kid. It was my favorite and it was involved but she made it with some frequency–so yummy.

  • Chef Mom B
    November 13, 2013 at 1:36 AM

    I put the book on my wish list! Hoping someone gets it for me for my upcoming birthday or for Christmas! Since going GF, I miss bread (any kind) most of all. A nice bagel with real cream cheese . . . *sigh* (I am dairy-free too.)

    My favorite bread memory is my grandfather bringing us “hard rolls” every Sunday morning when we lived in New Jersey. I would load the roll with butter so it was like having a butter sandwich! Sometimes, for an extra special treat, he would also bring us crumb cake.

    I recently found out that I have thyroid disease and going gluten free is an essential part of treatment. I have long considered myself a “carbaholic” or more specifically a “breadaholic”. I have been able to give up some of my bread craving and not miss them as much. Thanks to this blog I have been able to reintroduce a few of my long lost loves back into my life. My bread memory would have to be Pilsbury flaky layers biscuits with homemade pork sausage gravy. I have modified my grandmothers country gravy recipe to make it gluten free, but nothing beats the flakiness of hot out the oven pilsbury biscuits.
    I have not yet pre-ordered the Gluten free on a shoestring books but they are on my Amazon wishlist, My wonderful grandma has promised they will be under her christmas tree!

      I was diagnosed with Celiac disease at the age of 67, and Subway is my frequent morning stop after the gym (SilverSneaker cardio workout). I take a tortilla shell made by Food for Life, or a kind of flatbread (Nicole’s recipe with tapioca flour) and my local Subway makes my breakfast sub on my shell or flatbread. They are so nice–they change their gloves and use a new knife to prepare my order. There is life after Celiac Sprue!!

    Since I already told you that I ordered three of your books, and so far am really enjoying Gluten-Free on a Shoestring plus your blog, I am posting again because I’m waiting on an order I have with Amazon for Gluten-Free on a Shoe String Bakes Bread. It is order no. 1012053. I just heard that “Bakes Bread” will arrive between December 9 and 13. I can’t wait! I’ve had some real disasters since I’ve had to go gluten-free, and my husband has been very patient about eating my bricks and hockey pucks–can’t waste anything the price of flour? A food memory is being 15 and making a Chef Boy R Dee or Apian Way Pizza from a box that contained a dough mix, sauce and cheese. I would buy some pepperoni and make this pizza for my very first boyfriend. He is now my one and only husband of 48 years and I would give anything to make him another Chef Boy R Dee pizza.

    • November 13, 2013 at 10:18 AM

    This is my pinky swear full of exciting truth: I preordered my copy way back when it was first announced! I am so stinking excited to get it and try the recipes! :)
    My favourite memory is of so many awesome things. The best tho that has stuck with me for all of my life was the Amish bread we made for vacation bible school when I was a kid. It was so much fun mixing all of the ingredients together and then being able to take a jab at the dough when the time was right. Nothing was better than taking a warm slice of the bread we made with some butter and savoring every single bite that left us wanting more. We couldnt wait til the next day to make more. It was my highlight of bible school! :)

    I’m a frugal mama to three and am going to pre-order for my birthday at the end of the month! Being frugal means, alas, buying the 6.00$ bread is too crazy for my budget, and your recipes are the best way to get good, whole food accessible to my family on a daily basis. My bread memory is a funny one… as a twelve-year old who was creative in the kitchen, I made my family purple corn bread. I don’t remember now if it was by natural (blackberries?) or un-natural (a bottle of food coloring?) means. I’m most excited about the Naan bread in the new book! Thanks for what you do!

    Heck yeah, if you were “gluten-free” you would have to be an idiot not to buy your book! You have saved my life. I honestly couldn’t live without bread. I LOVE it and I have loved every thing I have made on your blog. (See attached pic for book pre-order).
    Oh, and bread memories..homemade cinnamon bread, parker house rolls, bagels to baguettes in Paris….. you’re killing me!
    Thank you for all your hard work!

    I already pre-ordered (see attachment) — and I just got your other two books as well. THANK YOU for all the amazing recipes. Everything has been great and has made my new gluten-free life SO much easier (and tasty!).

    As for bread memory.. I remember having the most amazing rolls every Thanksgiving. We’d have these fluffy crescent dinner rolls and everyone would eat at least 3 or 4!! Those were always my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner.

    Bread memories through the years… toast and jelly, grilled cheese and crackers in tomato soup, biscuits and gravey, my grandma’s homemade tortillas, discovering bagels in college, english muffin breakfast sandwiches, french bread, garlic bread, ginormous croutons, daily breadmaker bread when my kids were young, pizza and calzones, breakfast casseroles, and currently longing for meals that consist solely of fabulous bread, cheese and wine… I could go on and on.

    My favorite bread memory is my family’s homemade donuts. My dad and grandparents owned a donut shop when I was little, and my dad made the most tender, melt-in-your-mouth donuts I have ever had. In all honesty, they give Krispy Kreme a run for it’s money. I was about 9 or 10 months old, and they noticed that there were little bites out of the donuts at the bottom of the showcase. They were worried they had mice until one day they saw me walk over to the showcase (in my walker), slide open the door just a bit and take a pinch off a donut on the bottom. No mice, just me helping myself!

I would love all the cool gadgets for making your recipes in the new book…I hope I get choosen!

    My favorite bread memory would have to be my grandma’s fried corn bread. It was difficult enough to try and get the recipe right when I could add wheat flour. She has a habit of leaving out certain details that will make or break the recipe. I have so many memories attached to this delicious fried goodness.

My favorite bread memory were those plain white dinner rolls with butter melted in. They were always, ever since I could chew solid food, my favorite part of the meal.

    Hi Nicole it appears I am print screen challenged as well as bread challenged. In March of 2013, when we accidentally discovered my 10 yr. old daughter was gluten intolerant (she had had head aches and stomach aches EVERY SINGLE day of her life. Dr.’s had given her every test they could think of including Celiac and had determined nothing) After two weeks of no gluten she was 100% cured! (While I was developing generalized anxiety disorder trying to figure out how to rethink everything we ate!) Luckily I stumbled upon your site, and my cure. I bought both books the same day and felt a HUGE sense of relief to be your leming. Thank You for all that you do.
    I am eagerly anticipating the newest book as I have had little success with my attempts at bread making so far.
    My Bread memory is olfactory when I think of my departed Grandmother I smell those warm, soft, pillows of white, yeasty bread dough dobs (as she called them). That is what I hope to recreate. Wish me luck! I’m counting on this new book! :)
    Your Fan,
    Tawnya

    I don’t have just one favorite bread memory. It was every Thanksgiving and Christmas. My mom made these beautiful potato cresent rolls. They were a big deal because they took 2 days to make. They were buttery, soft, goodness. Everyone looked forward to them. One year my mom had the flu. So she stayed home. My Aunt was pregnant and had looked forward to the rolls for months. When I showed up without my mom, she freaked out. Full tears and everything. They are that good.

    So here I am. Freshly diagnosed with Gluten Intolerance. I’m a baker. I’ve been making all of my families bread for years. I feel like lost. I know it’s just bread, but I’m so used to making bread 5 days a week. The act of working dough soothes me. I have to learn a whole new way to bake. Hopefully getting a shiny new cookbook will help.

    My favorite bread memory…wow, that’s a tough one. I grew up in NY so we were always visiting one bakery or another or trying different pizza joints. I loved the real NY hard rolls and how most bakeries would throw them into a brown paper bag and if you ordered a dozen they would always give you a baker’s dozen. I mean, who doesn’t want an extra, free roll, right? I also loved salt bagels with loads of cream cheese slathered all over it. And, of course, there’s the NY-style pizza with everything (except anchovies) on it, that was always out of this world good. It was just a bonus to watch then throw the dough in the air and spin it in their hands. That’s just pure genius right there. I could go on and on and on about all my memories full of deliciousness but I won’t bore you with my nostalgia. Who knew that all that yummy, goodness was actually making me sick. I have both your other cookbooks and am so excited about your newest one. Keep it up…you have rocked my gluten free world with amazing recipes!!

    Am so excited about this book. The thing I miss the most is the wheaty smell. I used to bake a LOT and am still getting used to the gf baking science. My whole family though misses that wonderful scent that fills the house while baking. At times the smell alone can be more a comfort than the food itself.

Mile high corned beef on rye! Sigh. I miss it all. I have both previous books but still being post-op from weight loss surgery I have to severely limit carbs. 40 lbs to goal then look out GFOASS!!

    I feel like I pre-ordered ages ago, because I’m SO excited to get your book!
    Bread Memory; that’s easy- Sourdough bread. I’m from the San Francisco Bay Area, and we live on that stuff there! I used to join my father’s bird watching group’s expeditions, just to get the yummy sourdough sandwiches he’d pack for lunch. I can’t tell you the song of a Lazuli Bunting, but I can still smell and taste that bread; slightly sour crust with a chewy and somehow also crunchy texture. Spongy white interior with a little resistance and lots of lovely tiny air pockets. Not dry, not wet. Perfect.
    Sometimes we would have fondue, with a huge bowl of cubed sourdough to sop up the cheesy goodness. My parents would often host wine-tastings, and we kids would fight over the left-over chunks of sourdough bread.
    If there’s a recipe in your book that can bring me back that sourdough bread in a gluten free form, you will be restoring a little piece of my soul.

    Mother didn’t bake bread, but we used to go to the local bakery early on Saturday morning and buy a dozen of the “hard rolls”. The smell was so enticing that we would stop everything and have a warm fresh-from-the-oven roll with butter while sitting around the kitchen table. Later I learned to bake bread from scratch (while the boys were toddlers) and even later purchased a bread machine that I adored (as did my DH). After going G-F I haven’t found a bread machine recipe that works, so back to baking from scratch and hope to find a recipe that will support my old “crunchy-grainy” bread (Three Seed Bread).

    Hi Nicole! I am so excited that your book is finally going to arrive. Amazon notified me that I should have it on dec8th. I ordered it months ago when u first announced it…I will look forward to book 4! My favorite bread memory involves my Dad who grew up in a family that owned a bakery. At age 42 he was drafted as a cook during WW2…so he knew baking from scratch. My mom always deferred to him for all items bread related. I still remember time in the kitchen w him working his dough as my anticipation for that yeasty treat built! Sad to say, he has been gone for 37 years now & I am not the baker he was. I am hoping the new book will help me improve my skills! Thanks for your great site & recipes. Mimi K.

    Can’t wait for this book! GF on a Shoestring changed me from a depressed mom of a 5 year old celiac to a regular ol’ mom of a 5 year old celiac. We bake from your book ALL the time. My child feels totally normal, not deprived, and probably eats more delicious home baked treats now than before she was diagnosed. I certainly bake more now than ever before. GF on a Shoestring is my lifeline. In the event of an earthquake here in Calif, I’m grabbing my kids, my glasses, and all your books (and not necessarily in that order). My bread memory is warm, out of the oven, crusty artisan bread, grilled, and rubbed with raw garlic and topped with chopped tomatoes and fresh basil with a ball of fresh mozzarella cheese on the side.

    Can’t wait for this book! GF on a Shoestring changed me from a depressed mom of a 5 year old celiac to a regular ol’ mom of a 5 year old celiac. We bake from your book ALL the time. My child feels totally normal, not deprived, and probably eats more delicious home baked treats now than before she was diagnosed. I certainly bake more now than ever before. GF on a Shoestring is my lifeline. In the event of an earthquake here in Calif, I’m grabbing my kids, my glasses, and all your books (and not necessarily in that order). My bread memory is warm, out of the oven, crusty artisan bread, grilled, and rubbed with raw garlic and topped with chopped tomatoes and fresh basil with a ball of fresh mozzarella cheese on the side. Or a crazy, thick, irregularly shaped BLT. Oh, yeah, what about a freshly baked tartine with fresh homemade jam and fatty European butter? Now THAT is a fond memory.

    • November 12, 2013 at 7:48 AM

      Oh, Gina, I know that feeling of wanting your kid to feel normal. Wanting to feel normal yourself! It’s an honor to be a small part of all that. *mwah*

      I’m currently unemployed and desperately searching for a job, but as soon as I can afford it I will most definitely be buying this. I have your other two books and they are all I use. I love them!

      My favorite bread memory would have to be my grandma’s fried corn bread. It was difficult enough to try and get the recipe right when I could add wheat flour. She has a habit of leaving out certain details that will make or break the recipe. I have so many memories attached to this delicious fried goodness.

    I have been waiting on your book from Amazon since July 29, 2013, order no. 1012053, shortly after I was diagnosed with Celiac Sprue, so this is my pinkie swear. I ordered three of your books, received Gluten Free on a Shoestring, and am still waiting on the dessert book and your new bread book. Bread memory is my mom’s homemade white loaves of bread that I made coffee soup for breakfast every morning–that’s hot coffee, milk, and sugar poured over a slice of homemade bread. Your blog and the first book I received have been a great help in this challenge to be gluten-free. Thanks so much. E-mail is sorvosh@comcast.net

      Have you eaten it? My dad and I ate coffee soup every morning for breakfast. Sometimes he would put corn flakes on top of his or hide a piece of chocolate cake under the bread. I still love chocolate cake in a bowl with milk. Guess that’s where I got my sweet tooth! And now I’m depending on you for some recipes since my Celiac diagnosis in July. I just got word from Amazon that my order for Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Quick and Easy will come November 15–Friday–whoopee!!!!–I can’t wait! I’m 68 and baked bread, rolls, pizza, cakes, pies, cookies, you name it for over 50 years. Now I’m baking bricks, hockey pucks, and things that look ok the first day, but turn into their original form the next day. Keep up the good work–we need your recipes.

    I have asked my husband for the book for Christmas. I can’t say that I have gluten bread memories of eating gluten bread because I still eat gluten on occasion. It is my dear husband that was diagnosed with Celiac disease. But, as the main family cook, in my own way I really miss good homemade rolls to go with Sunday dinner because I want to make a really good gluten free roll that we can all enjoy.

I have so many bread memories, but the best is the family cinnamon bread recipe that my great-grandmother and grandma used to make. I got the recipe and started making it for my family, too, but since going GF, I just haven’t had the heart…

    I TOTALLY pre-ordered your book from Amazon the minute you announced it MONTHS AGO….I’m SO impatient….WHERE IS IT?!!!!!! (Insert whining here).

    My favorite bread memory is tough to narrow down, but I’ll try….

    When I went away to college (in ancient times in 1978), I landed in earth’s perfect paradise, in so many ways. First, because I was 17 and free as a sun-worshipping tan-tastic beach baby in Hawaii…and secondly, I stumbled upon King’s Hawaiian Bakery Coffee Shop on King Street in Honolulu….and they brought me….(wait for it….do you hear the trumpeters?!!)…FRESH HAWAIIAN BREAD ROLLS!!! I was SMITTEN!! Since being diagnosed Gluten intolerant I have missed those sweet fluffy puffs of baked dough with an ache in my heart (insert sad violin music here)….and NOW….my Gluten-Free-Queen-Idol (insert Nicole Hunn HERE!!) is making my DREAM COME TRUE with a recipe for Hawaiian Rolls in her new cookbook… I am over the g-free MOON!!! (Insert Victory March here!).

    Hi Nicole! My name is Cara. We haven’t met yet, but I’ve been admiring you from afar (Canada) for quite some time now. Little do you know, you are my hero…

    A couple of years ago I was diagnosed celiac shortly after being diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis (an inflammatory bowel disease). Life got pretty tough, pretty fast. The first thing I did was march in to Chapters on the hunt for a gluten free cookbook, and yours was the first I purchased! You, your cookbooks, and your blog have have unknowingly been there with me every step of the way. It hasn’t been easy but you’ve been a tremendous help. My favourite moments are those in my kitchen, testing out one of your recipes. Congratulations on your new book! I am ecstatic for you, and ecstatic for me of course (since I just pre-ordered it on amazon.ca). I cannot wait to try out the new recipes.

    My favourite bread memory? French bread, rolls, fresh and warm served at Italian restaurants. Fresh whipped butter in a little white dish, smothered on a piping hot bun or slice of French Bread. Going out to eat dinner on a Friday night was such a treat, such an event. The reward after a hard work week, and it all began with the bread! (Ok, maybe with the bread and a glass of red!) Dinners at nice restaurants that serve you warm buns and rolls and such were always a celebration. Those breads make me think of happy moments – birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, accomplishments of any kind all celebrated with bread and butter to start the evening.

    My memory…..
    Every Christmas my mother would bake homemade cinnamon twist roll. These took days to make since they need to be kneaded, rolled and let rise several times. This was an event… one which was reserved for this special holiday. When she passed away my sister took over the tradition of making these rolls. How I miss being able to enjoy them on Christmas morning.

    Let me just say this, I love your books. As a avid baker and all around cook, when I was diagnosed with a severe wheat allergy I cried. How would I ever cook again. I found other gluten free cookbooks, hated them and gave them away. Then I found you….sigh…..if anyone out there has NOT gotten Nicole’s cookbooks you must. YOU MUST! She has a ton of recipes here and lots of helpful hints but the cookbooks have more. There are recipes in the cookbooks that you won’t find here on her website. I can’t wait for the bread cookbook to come out. It will be added to my collection. My favorite bread memory is a Mexican cornbread recipe that my grandmother handed down the line. I have not been able to recreate it much to my sadness. There is just nothing like Martha White white cornbread mix and that is what it takes. It is full of cheese, jalapeno peppers and lots of yummyness. I have been known, pre-wheat allergy, to make a 10″ size iron skillet of it and eat it all in one sitting. It’s that good.

    I have not pre ordered the book as I am hoping to move soon and do not know my new address to send the book to but will be buying the book as soon as it is released. I recently discovered my six year old son has Coeliacs disease and he is finding it very hard to adjust to the new diet. I asked him for his bread memory and this is what he said ” I remember going to the Turkish bakery and smelling the fresh bread smell before we walked in the door, I remember the warm bread knots and the popping of the sesame seeds between my teeth and breaking the crunchy bread that is always soft in the middle into pieces and eating them in the car on the way home”. My son has said that he likes the bread I cook for him at home as it tastes better than the gluten free bread from the shops, so I have to thank you as I got all the recipes from your web site. My son also loves to bake with me and says that the bread he makes with me is always the best. Thanks again!

As for my “breadmemory”, I really miss 2 things. Saturday morning bagels with everything and Pizza Hut pizza crust. I also live in a very small town with a very large factory/bakery and have to smell amazing fresh baked bread (that I can’t eat) every day. (There are worse things that my town could smell like, right?) Thank you for all you do!

    My favorite bread memory is baking my grandmother’s caraway rye bread with my mom. It was so perfectly soft in the middle with a crunch crust and the most enchanting aroma I ever inhaled. I would roll up my sleeves and wear my mom’s half apron up to my underarms and help her knead the dough. When the bread was ready, I’d pretty much use up half a stick of butter on two slices! it was decadent. I would love to recreate this bread!

    I’m really excited about this book, it’s pre-ordered it as a late birthday gift for me and a second copy is on order to give to my parents for the holidays.

    My favorite bread memory is father’s deep dish pizza crust. It was always crisp and buttery outside crust and super tender inside. He would bake it in a buttered iron skillet, and top it with whatever we had on-hand in the fridge (it made for some really interesting pizzas, but always delicious). Growing up this was a once a month treat for us. He’s the person who taught me how to bake. My mom was diagnosed Celiac 14 years ago, and my dad and I have both been diagnosed as sensitive so I am really excited about being able to give him a book on bread that we can all bake from!

I remember that my mom would make bread quite frequently and it was soft, fluffy, and warm. However trying to make the bread with the GF flour just does not make it as fluffy, no matter what I have tried. I have gotten better at making it better but just not like it was.

Even when I make stuffing my thoughts are always of her. One year I finally asked what her secret was and she only said one thing. It’s the BREAD.

Apparently, my 17 year old daughter still remembers it too and asked if I could make it just the other day…. I haven’t made bread since becoming GF over two years ago. That’s why I’m really looking forward to your newest cook book so I can start making home made bread again. The aroma, the taste, and more memories and can be made again soon!

He would bake it in a buttered iron skillet, and top it with whatever we had on-hand in the fridge (it made for some really interesting pizzas, but always delicious). Growing up this was a once a month treat for us. He’s the person who taught me how to bake. My mom was diagnosed Celiac 14 years ago, and my dad and I have both been diagnosed as sensitive so I am really excited about being able to give him a book on bread that we can all bake from!

      My favorite bread memory is baking my grandmother’s caraway rye bread with my mom. It was so perfectly soft in the middle with a crunch crust and the most enchanting aroma I ever inhaled. I would roll up my sleeves and wear my mom’s half apron up to my underarms and help her knead the dough. When the bread was ready, I’d pretty much use up half a stick of butter on two slices! it was decadent. I would love to recreate this bread!

    Below is my receipt for pre-ordering 2 of your new Bread cook book. One for me and one for my sister.

    I have SO many favorite pre-celiac bread memories. I love the smell, the feel and definitely biting into a soft piece of freshly baked bread. With butter, with jam or as grilled cheese…I can’t have enough. I love French toast, hot buns, French bread with garlic spread…etc. Nothing I don’t love about bread. Its an addiction:) Going gf has been rough because of my addiction. I can’t wait for your new book so I can bring all of bread memories to life again! Thanks for your hard work Nicole:)

      Alright:) What do I say about bread?! Have you ever heard of Kringles? They are Danish and I grew up with them in Wisconsin. I went to Denmark a few years ago and had a true Danish kringle…it was amazing. I love the soft, flaky and buttery kringle. Also I couldn’t have enough pastries:) Those were the days!

    I am so excited about this book! My friend actually purchased it for me Friday night; I can get her to send a screenshot if needed! I was literally drooling over the index praying that I could actually be successful with the recipes!!!

    When thinking about my bread memory, I can’t decide on just one. I love breads – cinnamon/sugar toast as a kid, biscuits and gravy made on Saturdays by my dad, deep dish pizza, these awesome angel biscuits my stepmom makes, Ritz crackers by the tube…the list goes on and on.

    Then there’s the bad memory…grinding my own wheat to make bread and when completed the bread would fit in a snack-size baggie AND my family ate it like that for years!!!!

    I will master bread baking and will love it even more since it will be GF!! Thanks!!

Hopefully there is a great recipe for easy sourdough. I tried to post a message a bit ago but it doesn’t look like it made it so If i reposted that is why.

    I loved my mom’s homemade bread. As soon as it was out of the oven I’d have a piping hot slice slathered in butter. Separate, gluten-filled memory would be Lambert’s tossed rolls in MO.

    I am commenting on the hopes that you will take pity on me and accept my entry despite the fact that I can not at this time afford to order a book, although if there were room in my budget I would be snatching it up. Over the summer my family of 4 went gluten free due to illness and autism diagnosis there by increasing our grocery bill and then my husband lost his job and had to take a much lowered paying one. I have had to bake all of our breads and cracker to reduce cost and I am forever on the look out for amazing bread recipes.

    I am a carb-aholic I loved a good sesame bagel and could finish a loaf of pumpernickel by myself in one sitting. What I really miss is what my family calls Mommy Rolls, homemade yeast rolls my mom would make 2 may 3 times a year, Thanksgiving, Christmas and if we were lucky Easter. It was a full day process, as kids we used to fight over who got to punch the dough, and I remember years when the bowl was just too small for the rising dough. My mom would roll out the dough cut it in strips and tie them in knots then brush with butter. The smell of them baking was heaven on earth. The leftover rolls disappeared before anything else, the next week any snack or meal contained a roll. A year with out Mommy rolls just wasn’t the same. It has been almost 3 holidays now without Mommy rolls for me but I can still taste them every time I think about them.

    Yowza, that was a complicated list of stuff to do…I hope I get it all correct. :-) I DID pre-order the book–you’re one of my favorite recipe peps and I LOVE bread, and I’m gluten-free, so there you have it. How could I NOT pre-order the book? My favorite bread memory :::bread whimper::: is using lovely French bread to soak up the juice from a freshly sliced tomato during the height of summer. Dang, I miss bread. Can’t wait for your bread book to come out. Seriously, what’s the hold up? :-)

    My mother
    taught me to bake bread and it seemed to easy! The delicious aroma, the warmth
    in the house from the oven, and the taste-it always tasted so good. After
    my mother passed away, baking bread
    was a way for me to enjoy my
    memories of baking with her. I have taught my daughters to bake bread as
    well, however, we haven’t made the same enjoyable memories since having to be
    GF. I would LOVE to recreate the warm memories and the wonderful taste of
    fresh, home baked bread!

    I miss saltine crackers the most and a soft “wonder bread” type of bread. I ate crackers as a snack after school every day with peanut butter. I used to make a lot of breads, rolls, and pies, but not so much since my daughter and I were diagnosed with a wheat allergy. T

    I promise I am buying two copies. One for me and one for my daughter. My best bread memory is homemade French bread. I used to make 40 loaves a week. My son’s soccer team would have a dinner the night before every game (2 a week) and I would make 20 loaves for every dinner. The boys thought it was their lucky charm. They won every game the day after eating my homemade French Bread.

    One of my favorite gluteny memories: My mom’s Carbonnade de Boeuf stew made with a hearty dark beer (a no-no now) and some fresh out of the oven Pugliese bread. Each crusty slice of Pugliese would be smothered with butter which would drip into the soft, white center. We would dip these crusty but pillowy Pugliese bites in the stew and finally use it swipe those last few drops left in the bowl….heaven…

      Nicole- I pre-ordered your book over the summer and I’ve dying to get it. I have all of your other books in a very handy place in my kitchen. Are they covered with GF flour .. yep.. and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

      My favorite bread memory is just a simple PB&J sandwich with incredibly soft white wonder bread.

      no pre-frozen gf bread comes close.. well without putting it in the microwave for a few seconds but then it’s a HOT PB&J sandwich. Your Japanese Milk bread comes really close to the super soft white bread.. but still the simplicity of just making a sandwich in a few seconds is missed in my household.

    Hello….I posted my pre-order for the bread book. I am sooooo eager to receive it! My favorite bread memory has two parts. When I was a teenager, my grandmother taught me to make a lovely Danish braided loaf of egg bread. I made that for years and years. That good experience convinced me that I could bake bread! Any bread! When we moved to Indonesia, I planned to dazzle the maids with my bread making skills and managed to produce the equivalent of a cast iron, immoveable lump. The servants asked each other if this, perhaps, was a doorstop…and unfortunately I understood them! We all agreed that it should be put into the garbage box, a sort of built into the garden wall garbage can that
    had a door that could be opened for cleaning out or removing materials. Imagine my shattered self-concept when even the rats ignored my bread. I later learned that part of the problem was “soft” vs “hard” flours. I gave up on yeast breads and made fruit and veggie breads with great success.

    My favorite bread memory is smelling fresh baked bread and seeing the loaves lined up on the kitchen counter. When I was a young girl I went to a one room schoolhouse in rural Iowa. Sometimes I went home with my friends and their mothers had often baked fresh bread and left it on the counter while they went out to do their chores. I never saw this at home. My mom wasn’t an enthusiastic cook and six kids kept her busy in other ways. I always thought I’d bake bread when I grew up and bought various devices to do so, but I’d thought the gluten-free requirement had finally spoiled it all for me. Thanks to you, I look forward to baking my own bread again. Thank you!

    I would love…love…love to have a loaf of French Bread that tastes like French Bread. I still have to watch the rest of the family with there yummy sandwiches on French Bread while I have the saddest selections imaginable. The best of the gluten free breads I have had are ok at best. The worst tastes like a cross between styrofoam packing peanuts, cardboard and sawdust.

I can not wait to read your new book to find out what I am doing wrong with both of your sandwich bread recipes…….I am yeast and non-yeast challenged :( Thankfully there is a GF bakery up near my mom (who lives 2 hours from me) that makes great sandwich bread, so she brings me 5 loaves every time she comes down.

    *Completely forgot my bread memory* – My most fond memory of bread is kind of lame… I have turned out some really great cakes, muffins, cornbread, etc. But the one thing I have absolutely never been able to replicate is plain jane simple sandwich bread. It just never has the same mouth feel as that terrible stuff I ate as a child that was so soft and squished under my fingerprints with a sandwich. I know it was super bleached flour and not nearly as good for me as what I eat now, but dang it, I sure do miss that sometimes.

    Hi Nicole,
    I’m relatively new to your website – don’t ask me why it’s taken so long to find you and your amazing recipes! – but I’ve been gluten-free for almost two years now. Turns out all those years of helplessly falling asleep after a sandwich lunch weren’t normal after all! Anyhoo, I’ve made a ton of your recipes already – pumpkin butter and those pumpkin scones omg! and the chewy oatmeal choc chip cookies are the best I’ve EVER had and I’m somewhat of a cookie connoisseur! – and bread is next on my to-do list. I’ve always been pretty disappointed with gf bread on the store shelves; it’s always the wrong texture or really tastes like cardboard. I’m supposed to be yeast-free too, so I’m hoping you’ve got a couple recipes for that kind of bread in your book! I have all three of your recipe books on my Amazon wishlist and I know my awesome family will get them for me for Christmas. :) My favorite gluten bread memory is going to the local market with my mom when I was a kid and we’d buy the fresh-and-hot-out-of-the-oven Italian bread and eat half of it on the way home – the crust for her and the squishy inside for me. Oh how I miss it! Looking forward to making some new gf bread memories with my kids! Kellan x

    Another pinky swearer here – love the blog, own the books, and it’s only natural I pre-ordered this one. Out of all the blogs I’ve test-run in my 14 1/2 years of being gluten-free, yours is the only one to out-last the rest.
    I have so many things I miss that are bread-related: homemade biscuits and gravy, homemade chicken and noodles (or dumplings), deep dish Chicago-style pizza; the list is (almost) endless.

    My best bread memory is from when I got tested for Celiac Disease. After the test and before the official diagnosis, I made sure to return to my hometown to have spaghetti and bread at a local pasta cafe. They made the best individual loaves of piping hot “fresh bread” – a little sweet, a little yeasty, and 100% delicious. Sigh. I never cheat (not even once), but this is first on my list when I play the “If you were going to cheat…” game.

    Pinky swear. Ordered from Amazon along with Cookbook #2. My copy of #1 is covered with “yuk” cuz I use it all the time. Grandson has recently gone gluten free and I baked Japanese milk bread the last time he was together (it’s my favorite so far) but he was not so pleased. So, of course, I have to make grandson happy. You know how 8 year olds suffer when they have to go gluten free. Every time I saw them I baked for his mother (my daughter) but he is the one I really want to ease the pain for. Keep cranking them out. I recommend your cookbooks to everyone I meet.

    November 11, 2013 at 3:35 PM

    Of course I already pre-ordered the book. My bread memory does not have to do with baking. It has to do with double or triple parking and standing in the line that wrapped around the corner for the fresh french bread and Italian bread at Calandra’s Bakery in Newark, NJ. Of course, I had to rip off the heel and eat it on the way home, which would always upset my mom. To this day, when we go to visit, we stop at Calandra’s to get bread to bring to family. I can’t wait for this book!!!!

That is my favorite comfort dish, and after she passed away, any time I ate them (homemade using her recipe), I always think of her and smile with the memories.

    My bread memory… When I was a growing up, we would always go to grandma’s house on Christmas morning. We would have a big breakfast which included those Pillsbury cinnamon rolls in the can. I really don’t miss those rolls,(except for the convenience), but I can still smell them baking as we opened gifts. :-) As an adult, I mostly just miss yeast doughnuts and sourdough bread. I really miss my favorite grilled cheese on sourdough with bacon and tomatoes.

    Okay, my bread memory is buying a loaf of the cheese and jalapeno artisan bread after work at The Washington Hotel, Restaurant, and Culinary School in Washington Island, WI, and eating the whole thing between myself and a friend. The bread was so chewy with a thick crust and the cheese and jalapenos made it amazing. I’ve tried to recreate a gluten free version and ended up with a dried out, hard lump of cheesy and spicy biscuit dough. Maybe someday…… Oh, and I think I may have uploaded like 14 copies of my receipt, or none, I’m not sure!

    My most favorite bread memory is when our family would go to the big mall in town where they had a San Fransico Boudin Bakery. Our regular thing would be to purchase a large loaf of french bread and walk around nibbling on it with chocolate and a soda. It was something we shared as a family and it was fun. Also the bread that you get when you to a restaraunt that they place on the table, warm out of the ovens, with a smear of creamy butter melting into the cracks! Man shouldn’t type this before lunch–haha…..can’t wait to experiment with all the items I saw in the contents list!!!!!!

    Hello everyone! Didn’t get a picture but I pinky swear that I per-ordered 2 copies of the new book! One for my daughter and one for myself, woohoo! Thanks Nicole for the great recipes. My favorite memory of bread making was during a Thanksgiving holiday when I was 12 years old. I told my mother I would like to bake a french loaf and had no idea what that required. She said, “Ok my dear, but you are on your own with this one. Ah well, as you can imagine I didn’t begin the project until late in the day and what felt like an eternity later I finally had a loaf of french bread. I’m sure it was the middle of night before I was done, but I will never forget how much my mother loved and appreciated that bread on our Thanksgiving table the next day! And yes, I was really sleepy at dinner!

    OK – it’s on my christmas wish list – my budget is just too tight to pre-order right now. But I am drooling over it and begging all of my family members for it – someone will buy it for me – especiallly since it’s about bread and my family can not understand why I don’t cheat with Italian bread from a RI bakery (I don’t cheat at all – but they can’t understand that). Does that count? Please let it count!

    So my bread memory – I never ate bread much growing up (my subconscious probably knew about the Celiac’s) except when my mom made ham and cheese soup. Then I would eat a couple of slices of Italian bread dipped in the soup and everything in the world was beautiful. My husband eats the soup now and insists on having sourdough or italian bread with it in front of me. aarrgghh. Please let me enter! Love your blog (I have your first two books) and thanks for everything you do!

    • November 11, 2013 at 2:18 PM

      Totally counts, Elizabeth! It’s amazing how well-meaning family members don’t get that cheating isn’t an option, isn’t it? My solution? Make better food than they’re eating. ;)

Anyway, my very favorite Bread memory (pre-Celiac’s disease) is my youngest daughter and I would make French bread once a week. We would mix, knead, proof, form into a French bread loaf, wait for it to rise, bake and then devour with a stick of butter!!!! Such the fine memory! Can’t wait for your book. Hugs and love, Sallie

I discovered my love for homemade bread after marrying my husband 5 years ago…. it all started with a bread machine he had, then I soon moved to baking bread in the oven. After going gluten-free earlier this year, I’m slowly delving into the world of baking homemade gluten-free bread. I’m looking forward to the book!!

    Nicole, love your site (as you know!) and can’t wait to receive (and bake from!) your book.

    I have many gluten-filled foods/breads that I miss, but a very strong bread memory for me is from December of 2001. I had run off to Istanbul in an attempt to cure a broken heart. I fell in love with traditional Turkish tea and simit, the round bread loaves similar-to-but-not-really-like a bagel, that one could buy from street vendors. My simit was served to me with breakfast in my little hotel – Empress Zoe – with white cheese, olives, cucumbers, tomatoes and apricot jam. I ate simit every morning while staring out the window and watching the snow blanket the Old City. It was delicious and, I think, a curative. I wish I could have it again…but alas. A Turkish friend bought me a tee-shirt that reads, “I love tea and simit”. I do…

    The gf memory that I miss most is probably having clam chowder in sour dough bread bowls with my family on Friday night movie night. Or any other time Mom would make it. That was my absolute favorite meal growing up and clam chowder simply isn’t the same without that delicious chewy bread bowl! I also REALLY miss a good, thick and chewy slice of pizza!

    LOVE your work. Thanks for all you do!

    Hey Nicole, I pre-ordered back in September on Amazon. My favorite bread memory is when I was a kid, my mom made this fantastic whole wheat bread that made the house smell all yeasty, like beer! You’d walk into the house and the smell of it rising in the bowl just knocked you over and made your mouth start to water. I’d check the bowl to watch it rise almost continuously until finally, after long last, she would put the loaves in the oven. She always made multiple loaves because we’d descend on that first loaf, still steaming from the oven, and devour it until we were too full to move. Somehow it was light and fluffy even though it was whole wheat. What I’d do for a slice of that today…

    I pinky swear that I preordered your bread book from B&N way back on August 19. My daughter has been gluten free for 7 years and barely remembers eating gluten filled bread, but once in awhile she sighs and says “I wish I could eat regular bread.” I found out last year that I also need to eat gluten free, and the bread I miss most is a chewy pizza crust. Also, this time of year when all the magazines come out with their holiday issues, I sometimes feel a little left out. Thank you for all your hard work. Out of all the cookbooks I own yours are the ones I use the most!

    Hi Nicole,

    I preordered your bread book from amazon and I am soo looking forward to making pumpernickel bread! My daughter is the one who needs to eat gluten free and the rest of us eat about half and half. We eat at cheesecake factory occasionally and love their “whole grain bread” which reminds me of pumpernickel and my daughter really wants to try pumpernickel so I was really happy to see it in the table of contents! YEAH ;)

We used to make homemade bread all the time, with freshly ground golden wheat. That stuff was amazing. Fresh from the oven with butter and honey… Mmmm. I miss real pizza. Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I miss those meatball subs I used to get on that golden, crispy french bread. I miss croissants. I miss going to the bagel shop. I miss cinnabon. I miss subway. I loved going to get those delicious soft pretzels with the yummy dipping sauces… I miss Olive Garden breadsticks… I miss those frozen burritos and chimichangas we used to get when I was a kid, for when we had babysitters overnight. I miss a lot of things, more than I could name! I am also very hungry now, haha. I am so excited to get my copy of your book! December 12th, please come quick! :)

    Pinky swear promise, promise, promise that I preordered from Amazon as soon as you said we could! The fondest bread memory is Italian bread homemade by a local bakery. I’m talking a crusty “leave crumbs everywhere” outside with a soft chewy interior that just screamed for fresh butter. Or not. The flavor is so wonderful that we often ate it plain. It made awesome pizza, incredible toast for French onion soup, and an awesome bottom for a ladle of hot stew. ~Cindy Cookingalong@yahoo.com

    Bread memory – french toast has always been my favorite breakfast and my parents would make it for me every birthday! As an adult I’d also make it on days that were rough, comfort food! I haven’t had it in over a year and miss it!!! I have tried some gf bread recipes and not done too well…. so eager for your book!!!!

My favorite bread memory is of the bread my mother-in-law made every year at Easter. It was a rich egg bread with lots of golden raisins in each loaf. As she got older I attempted to make her bread. The last Easter she was with us I baked the bread and held my breath when she tasted it. I was so surprised when she looked at
    me and said, “This is as good as mine.”

    Yay! I’m so excited for this book. I have your others and they are my “go to” books for practically everything. I adore bread, in almost any form, but probably the one I miss the most is a good, thick and chewy pizza crust or sourdough bread. I like thin crust, don’t get me wrong, but every once in a while I crave a nice deep dish pizza!

    I pre-ordered your book on Halloween and included a photo for you. Congratulations! Can’t wait for it to get here!

    Here is my pre-order on Amazon.com.
    My bread memory is of my favorite local pizza place where I grew up. A local family from Italy moved to my small town in the 80s and opened up a pizza place at our local mall. They have the BEST pizza I’ve ever tasted and just before going GF, my husband and I were visiting and I made sure to have their pizza – twice – as I knew I’d miss it more than anything. I have yet to have a good GF pizza (haven’t been your pizza dough yet) and seeing someone eat pizza often makes me tear up as I miss it so much.
    I would LOVE to win this prize, your recipes are awesome and having the tools I need to make them would make my life so much easier. First thing I’d make is your pizza dough!

How about a muffin, that actually tastes like a muffin and not a dense pound cake. Or some delicious sandwich bread that doesn’t fall apart in your hand or get soggy. These are a few of my favorite things, yes! I do sing about them!! ;-) <3

    Hi Nicole,
    I preordered my copy back in October. My favorite pre-celiac bread memory was going to the mall and getting those big soft pretzels with my sister. We’d do our shopping and always end up at the pretzel store. Then we’d sit together and gab while we ate our pretzels. We even kept this up after we were adults with our own kids.

    I can’t take a picture or anything because I only have the internet on my phone, but the book is pre-ordered from amazon! I am really really excited because baking bread is all I do these days. It’s a magical experience every time.

    I want to give you a bread memory, but the best ones I have involve oscar mayer bologna and iga white bread. We weren’t exactly rich growing up, and everything my mom knew how to cook came out of a box.

    Yours was the very first book I baked from when I found out I had celiac disease. I had honestly never even considered baking my own bread before that. It seems silly but with the way I was raised it just was outside my way of thinking. Thanks goes out to you wholeheartedly, because all my most favorite bread memories are from the last two years baking my way through your books and learning how to be confident in the kitchen, especially with yeast recipes. My kids are enjoying homemade bread and food in a way that I never got to as a child. It’s pretty amazing.

    • November 11, 2013 at 1:44 PM

      Oh, Kristy, that is most certainly a bread memory. And a beautiful one at that! Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of the early gluten free days with you. I’m honored to have been “there” with you. :)

    Nicole,

    I have the first two books and used them extensively before being diagnosed with additional allergies: I can’t have dairy or egg (among other things). While my skills at adapting recipes are improving, I’m concerned about the number of recipes in the Bread book that I will need to adapt.

    Can you give a rough estimate of the number of gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free recipes in “Bakes Bread”?

    Thank you so much!

    • November 11, 2013 at 1:46 PM

      Hi, there, Riss,
      The basic gluten free bread flour blend that I use calls for dairy and is necessary for the very best results. However, I give multiple suggestions for how to replace it with dairy-free substitutes. They won’t give identical results, but pretty good. Eggs are actually much, much less important in these recipes than in typical gluten free bread recipes. Hope that helps!

    Can’t wait for my copy to arrive!! Preordered it from amazon a while back and was sad when I received an email that it was going to be delayed :( My favorite bread that I miss is those lovely biscuits from Red Lobster. The buttery, garlicky goodness. MMMMmmmm.

    I already preordered my copy of Bakes Bread as soon as I got the Amazon notice that it was available to do so. I’m looking forward to getting it.

    My bread memory is a simple one. When I was little, my Nana always had sweet bologna and root beer for me when I’d visit with my sisters and the rest of my family. My sisters didn’t like sweet bologna or root beer, so I knew it was for me. When lunch time came, we’d all sit around the table and eat sandwiches. Afterwards she and I would clear the table and do jigsaw puzzles together.

    The bread wasn’t homemade, and I couldn’t even tell you want brand it was, but without it, there wouldn’t have been my sweet bologna sandwiches with my Nana. I don’t get to visit her much anymore, as I’ve moved away, but when I do I know she has the sweet bologna for me just in case. But she doesn’t have access to gluten free bread, even in her local super market, and it breaks her heart to not have a sandwich for me. To be honest, I’m tearing up a bit now. Bread was a cornerstone for that memory, and it’s one I cherish. I have a niece now, and I want to build simple memories like that with her. I don’t want her to remember eating dry and crumby sandwiches at her Aunt’s house, so I will make good bread that I, and she, enjoy.

    • November 11, 2013 at 1:49 PM

      I teared up a bit, too, kizzi! Oh, tell your Nana that great gluten free bread is coming. I bet it does really break her heart. It’s breaking mine! Honestly, that is exactly the reason for this book. To bring it alllllll back. xo Nicole

      I couldn’t believe it when I started to get misty eyed, I’m not the sort to do so! And even though my initial comment has my promise of having preordered it, I made a screengrab. I can’t add it to my comment anymore, though so I added it here. May 22nd seems so long ago!

    I am excited to get your new book. I just placed the order. I remember the first time that I went to Disneyland. I was 15 and I stopped by a little eatery and ordered new england clam chowder in a sour dough bowl. I just took by daughter for her 12 th birthday and because a year ago October she and I were diagnosed with celiac disease, we were unable to share that memory together. Both of our favorite bread is sour dough. We miss it.

    November 11, 2013 at 12:07 PM

    I can’t WAIT for my copy to arrive…I pre-ordered it from Amazon back in October.
    I miss this sandwich I used to get at a local deli…it was on this tangy sourdough roll and lightly buttered and toasted, then piled high with turkey, cheese, lettuce and tomato, and bacon! The bread was the best part, though…I used to have a little pool of olive oil and balsamic vinegar that I’d dunk the sandwich in as I was eating it, and the bread would soak it up and make the sandwich even better. Now I sorta wish I hadn’t brought this memory to mind, because, wow, I REALLY want one!
    I truly can’t wait to get busy baking the recipes in your new book!

    Am eagerly awaiting my copy. Pre-ordered if forever ago!

    What I miss most about gluteny bread is just being able to kneed it. We baked wonderful Easter bread every year and decorated it with braids and crosses. I can make a good taste approximation GF, but I miss those pretty round loaves. And I miss a good, crusty sourdough-that satisfying tear of teeth through crust and some butter melting down the sides, sigh…

    My computer is refusing to upload an image. I don’t want to share the full receipt with all my info on it. I pre-ordered on 5/13/13 on Amazon and can share more info with you if needed.

    I PINKY SWEAR I pre-ordered the book at amazon.com yesterday. My favorite bread memory: when we were kids my mom always made home made pizza dough, and then what dough was left over we would make pita frido (fried dough in Italian??). We fried the UFO shaped dough and then shook them in brown bags full of brown or cinnamon sugar. Oh how I long to have truly great pizza and pita frido!!!

    Hi Nicole,
    I just pre-ordered the new book. I am very excited to make new GF bread memories. One of my favorite memories is of my grandma baking bread in the morning and waking up to THAT smell in the house. There is nothing like the smell of bread baking. And that first slice …. ahhhhh. :-)
    Thanks for doing what you do!

    I ordered the book today (11-11-13) and my favorite bread memory is most parents fresh bread that is straight from the oven and still so warm that the butter melts as your putting it on the bread and the crust is good and crunchy. The store bought bread doesn’t compare. The other type of bread I miss the most is Rye bread for a Reuben. I am looking forward to making some and having that amazing sandwich.

    I just posted and lost my post. Ah!

    Just pre-ordered! It was on my christmas list, but with a giveaway like that, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity:)

    My 4 year old is gluten free, which in our house means a gluten-free household. I have wonderful memories of baking bread with my mom. Pounding down the dough before the second rise. Wish I could share that with my daughter. But I’d settle for sharing the warm from the oven slices of fresh baked bread and cinnamon buns that my mom used to make every saturday.

    On a practical note, I miss the cost of gluten bread! $4.99 for four hamburger buns that DO NOT taste good??? Is it too much to ask for soft hamburger and hot dog buns without gluten??

    Check out what I just bought.

    inky Swear I pre-ordered “Gluten-Free On A Shoestring Bakes Bread” on June 19, 2013 and can’t wait for it to arrive!

    Bread memory: My father was born in Northern California, but as the daughter of a career serviceman, I never lived here until I graduated from high school and moved to home for college. My dad used to describe San Francisco Sourdough Bread in the most loving terms and made me promise to send him loaves monthly in the mail to whatever far-flung point on the globe where his current duty station was located. My first mouthful of real San Francisco Sourdough was like sex. Hard to describe and has to be experienced to really appreciate. Years later, as a re-entry student and mother of four, I rented a room near a local bakery, Acme, then on San Pablo Avenue in Berkeley, while going to Cal. I woke each morning to the smell of some of the best artisan bread in the Bay Area happily baking away. My “Grad School Fifteen” came from hunks of Sticky Bread gnawed while walking to campus. (It would have been a “Grad School Fifty” without the walk.) Two decades later, and now unable to tolerate even the smallest amount of gluten in my diet, I dream of the whole wheat walnut bread, sourdough baguettes, and incomparable rosemary/olive foccacia. I can make a “passable” loaf of bread, but nothing from my oven or bread machine approaches the memory of that hunk of Sticky Bread warm and steaming from the oven, providing a delicious treat on a cold autumn morning as I trudged up the hill to campus.

    I’m very excited for this book to arrive! I just *pinky swear* pre-ordered from Amazon. I have no idea how to post a picture of the cart. So pinky swear will have to do :-)

    One of my favorite bread memories is of my grandmother’s sticky buns….. with raisins and nuts. So much good sticky goodness around delicious buns. Yum! Oh and big, fat, soft pretzels…..maybe with cinnamon sugar on top… Looking forward to trying everything in your book! Thanks for all your great recipes. I have your other cookbooks too and use them all the time.

    I preordered a few weeks ago on amazon, I can’t wait for it to arrive! One of my favorite breads used to be oatmeal molasses bread and I loved to eat it warm with soft butter, I’d love to be able to recreate that recipe.

    • November 11, 2013 at 1:51 PM

      My husband’s favorite loaf bread from the new book, K., is the Oatmeal Bread. It’s really soft and moist, with great texture. I think you’ll love it!

    I preordered it as soon as possible which I think was a mistake because the waiting is terrible. I bought it on amazon and when it said you’ll receive in Dec. I gasped . What!!! I can’t wait that long. My son is severely allergic to wheat so we have been gluten free for 18 months . But have played with gluten free cooking for the last 8 yrs . The first recipes I ever made were like concrete , tasteless lumps . I think great pizza crust was hard to get used to . My son still misses soft gluteness doughnuts .thanks for all your work . I love cooking so I’ve also come up with some great recipes I love . i have 6 kids (oh yes 6 ) and could never be so dedicated to finding great food . thanks so much for all you do . I promise , promise , promise I bought the book can get order if I can figure out how .

    Thanks

    Ok – so I know you already know I have preordered this baby and I cannot wait until it gets here. And boy you do not disappoint! What a great prize your doling out here and thank you so much for doing this – it is really really great!!!!!
    I have sooo many bread memories that are haunting me right now:
    1. Stuffed crust pizza from Pizza Hut. OMG how I miss it and those dang commercials almost send me over the edge into cheating. But I haven’t.
    2. Rhodes dinner rolls or the cheap ones you can get at the grocery store during the holidays, that you pull apart and they kind of like have a stringy consistency. I have made pull apart rolls, but nothing that tastes like the real deal.
    3. Bagel and Sandwich Thins. All GF bread is so big and fluffy and I don’t need all that. I just want a thin sandwich bread or thin bagel that I won’t feel guilty eating.
    4. Hotdog buns that aren’t so huge and fluffy and weird tasting.
    5. Cream cheese wontons (does that count as a bread? not sure). But I miss those little guys – a lot!
    Ok – that’s it for today. I may have more tomorrow… can you tell I’ve only been GF for a year? So many memories….

    Hi Nicole!
    I am so excited for this book. The one thing I have failed at, even with your expert guidance, is baking bread. I know that I would be more apt to stay GF if I could just conquer this one area. My daughter is a trooper and suffers through my failed attempts or the nasty store bought stuff. But if I could offer a pizza crust, or garlic bread that comes even a little bit close to what it used to be like…(that is our biggest GLUTEN memory) that would be like 1000 Christmas presents all wrapped up in one. I am making note of what is in the Grand Prize package because if I dont win, I am asking Santa for anything I don’t already own :o))) I WILL succeed at this :o))) Thank you again for doing all that you do. ♥

    I am excited about the book – I pre-ordered it a couple weeks ago. My whole life, I have lived within an hour’s drive of Dudley’s Bakery in Santa Ysabel, and I miss stopping there for whatever bread they were baking that day – cinnamon raisin, sourdough, potato bread, etc. Oh, and their baked fruit bars too! Ah, the carbohydrate comas that followed!

    I preordered it on Amazon awhile ago, which surely didn’t surprise their software, since I have thoroughly thumbed and crumbed Nicole’s last two Shoestring books- books that helped me regain my cooking confidence. The one thing I still struggle with is yeast dough, and I look forward to recreating morning memories of baking butter-topped white bread in my grandmother’s sunny, flour-dusted kitchen.

    Had to call my IT specialist husband for instructions on getting in the image, but I think it is there! Hand’s down, the bread I miss most is my dad’s hot buttered dinner rolls. He isn’t the bread baker, but he found this recipe in the New York Times (I think) probably 40-50 years ago, and made them for every holiday dinner or company meal, plus adapted them for cinnamon buns and crumb buns. So soft, buttery and delicious that you never even needed to put butter on them. As the holidays come around, I always think I should be able to come up with something to match those rolls, but never have

    My favorite bread memory is living in Seattle on the top Queen Anne across from Makrena’s Bakery. The smell of fresh bread would fill our street. Most mornings my husband and I would walk across the street and enjoy a great cup of joe and some fabulous fresh bread or pastry.

    I think there are too many to pick one! I miss gooey, slightly doughy cinnamon rolls, soft fresh multigrain bread with peanut butter and jelly, crusty warm French bread just out of the oven with a slab of butter, the perfect grilled cheese sandwich that doesn’t crumble as you eat it, toasted English muffins that the butter seeps into the holes! French toast! Flour tortillas! Chocolate filled crescent rolls! Cream puffs! Oh the list goes on!

    I die just a little bit everyday I don’t have GFOAS Bakes Bread!!!!
    My favorite bread memory…I was in my mid teens. My S Philly Grandma got all her “good rolls” from a local S Philly corner bakery. And I have to tell you, you really have to live on the east coast tri-state aread to appreciate “good rolls”. I don’t know if it’s the water, or the air, or maybe we’re just better at it (HA!) but the bread/rolls/dough is just very specific to the region. Anywho…Grandma would get her “good roll” for any kind of special dinner. They were small, knotted, some were seeded. They were crunchy on the outside and chewy as you pulled them apart (with your hands or teeth, your choice). Served with butter, they were……..perfect in every way. Now Grandma knew I loved these rolls and living in the subs I didn’t have access, so she’d always send me home with a bag that I’d store in the freezer. Then, around 4 in the morning….when the house was asleep, I’d sneak down to the kitchen, fire up the oven, and warm up a few rolls (which re-heated BEAUTIFULLY in the oven). Pulling them out of the oven, too hot to handle, spreading butter on them and haveing it run into my hand, almost burning my mouth and a hurried to eat the delicious little bundle of goodness……..I can actually smell them as I type this…..
    I NEED THAT BOOK!!!
    LOL!

And I swear (hand to heaven) that there is not one decent pizza in the whole state. I say that and I always get a slew of people who are like “Oh you have to try (fill in the blank) it’s New York style pizza!” So I try it, and it never is. As a matter of fact, I have plans to open a pizza shop/wine bar when we move and plan on bringing my East Coast knowledge with me AND all my pies will be GF!!

      I agree. Never really had a good pizza west of the Chicago area. Best pizza in the world is from a little shop in Steubenville Ohio where I grew up called DiCarlos. How they make it thin, crunchy, & chewy @ the same time is beyond me. But it’s awesome. Even worth being sick for a week so it’s a good thing I live far from there!

    • John Lachett
      November 11, 2013 at 1:46 PM

      I will confess, I have never had Chicago pizza (from Chicago) so I can’t really talk too much smack about it. I have had a “version” of it here in Philly and I kinda view it as it “own thing”. You really can’t compair it to a Philly pie because that would be like compairing Apple Pie and Apple turnovers. Many of the same ingrediants, but a totally different product! I do recall watching something on the food network about Chicago Pizza and the way the folks talked about it reminded me of how I talk about my East Coast pies, so I know it must be legit!!

    Wow! What a giveaway!! Of course, the giveaway can’t come close to the excitement I have to receive your new bread book! I pre-ordered June 28, 2013 …so I’ve been waiting a LONG time!

    Honestly my favorite bread memory combines three generations. As a very young girl, I would stand on a wooden step stool next to my Grandmother helping her make her luscious crescent rolls and breads. She baked for the farm hands every single day. Her kitchen actually had one huge tin lined drawer that could hold 20 lbs of flour and another that held sugar in bulk too. She baked by a handful of this and a certain favorite coffee cup of that. Totally by feel. She would let me stand right next to her the whole time and knead the bread and roll up the crescents and “paint” them with the egg wash before putting them into the oven.

    When my daughter was old enough to stand on a step stool next to me, before I was diagnosed, she would help me bake my Grandmother’s recipes. I’m sure my Grandmother was smiling down on us.

    Now I’m looking forward to once again filling my house with the smells of homemade bread, just breads that I too can eat!

    Just ordered my book on Amazon and can’t wait to get it. Our kitchen is in remodel hell right now and I will be ready to make some bread as soon as I get my oven, countertops, floors, and cupboards back. :-) Favorite bread memories are pretty basic. I miss grilled cheese sandwiches, cinnamon rolls and I have such fond memories of school cafeteria rolls. ;-)

    • November 11, 2013 at 10:05 AM

      Tell me about those cafeteria rolls, Maria! That’s a first! Were they soft and squishy?

    • Maria Henderson
      November 11, 2013 at 10:13 AM

      Hi Nicole, I guess I should be embarrassed as they were produced in mass quantity but the smell of those rolls baking everyday in the cafeteria was so comforting. My mom always packed my lunch for me and I was thankful. I was always ready to trade my Little Debbie snack for a roll. They were big and yes, squishy and very lightly brown and buttery on the top. I am sure they used the same bread recipe when they made cinnamon rolls for dessert on taco days. Not only do I remember these from my own school days but I also remember them from many years of teaching in the same school district. I loved our cafeteria ladies.

    • November 11, 2013 at 10:17 AM

      Are you kidding? Nothing to be embarrassed about here! Those sound fabulous. I think the Parker House Rolls in Chapter 6 would do the trick for those rolls you remember so fondly!

      November 11, 2013 at 10:49 AM

They used to go to church every morning, and if I was lucky they’d stop at the Polish bakery on the way home and get rogaliki for me. They were kind of in a horseshoe shape, and we’d cut them down the middle and just eat them with butter. They were fantastic. My grandma would always make hot coco with them, and it was just absolutely perfect. That’s the bread that I miss.

    I attached the screen grab of my pre-order from Amazon on July 28th (at least I think it attached, I don’t see it :/ )

      No problem, Monika. Sometimes it takes a bit to show up, but the effort is enough for me. :)

    I just preordered the book after reading this post! My favorite bread memory is sourdough bread made from a starter that I got in Alaska on a vacation. I had the starter going for a couple of years, right up until I had to go GF.

      Get ready to start a brand new starter, Elyse!

    My bread memory… Other than the fact that I used to eat bread at every meal? I used to say, “I could stop eating meat, but you take away my bread and cheese, you might as well kill me!”. Here I am. Bread less and still alive. Actually, better than ever. I have to say, I do miss those trips to Panera with my hubby and kids. I would always get a well toasted everything bagel with lots of butter. Bagels are probably the only thing that I really miss. And it would be great to eat a bagel with smoked salmon, cream cheese, capers, and onions. Oh yum!

    I ordered our copy on Oct 10th from barnes and noble. Favorite bread memory? Hard to tell we have been gluten free for a year on the behalf of my husband and 2 of my 4 children I think one of the big things for us is cinnamon rolls new years morning. light, fluffy yeasty cinnamon rolls. We have both of your other cook books and they are a life saver for us. Thanks so much.

    This is a Total Pinky Swear Promise as I pre-ordered your book through Amazon. Ok. My favorite REAL bread memory: I spent a few years in Belgium and I made it a regular habit to stop by the Boulangerie to gaze in amazement at the various, numerous types of freshly baked bread arranged on their slanted wooden shelves ALL calling my name. “Victoria, eat me!” or “Victoria, you haven’t tried me yet!” After a few minutes of staring and quietly huffing the scent baking bread I would pick one. I usually decided upon a loaf of some kind of white bread, all with exotic sounding names. Then I made the decision as to whether or not I would have it coupé en tranches or just rip it into chunks later.
    My precious little brown paper wrapped package and I would head home. I am at the table with a thick slice of that glorious bread– spread with entirely too much fresh butter, you know, the kind that after one bite you could make dental molds from the tooth imprints….the golden, toothsome crust….the soft, airy lightness of the bread inside….the lovely amber brown crust crumbs all over the tablecloth….I think I am getting emotional. Well, you asked.

      Okay, Vic, that is a memory to beat! From your description, I think the English Muffin Bread from the new book might just delight you. With a mess of butter, of course!

      Looking forward to trying the English Muffin Bread and EVERYTHING ELSE in your new book! Thank you for all of your hard work that has made it easier for those of us who had to unwillingly transition into the dark, scary world of gluten free baking. Your Gluten Free on a Shoestring blog/facebook page has been the Sunshine in that gloomy land.

    • November 11, 2013 at 10:05 AM

      So glad, Vic! It’s an honor. :)

    Yeahh….I pre-ordered in the very beginning; the message received from Amazon for the delay bummed me out, but it’s already the middle of November, so, yay! Cannot wait!
    My favorite “bread” memory is the day that I first created gluten free Yorkshire Pudding for Scott. He was quiet – I thought, uh-oh….but to my delight, he was mesmerized that such a fond memory of his youth (his mom always made them) was reproduced, and didn’t make him ill! He thanked me for caring enough for him to tackle a memory. My pleasure! I look forward to creating more goodies for his delight!

    Hey! My two favorite things….recipes and contests! My 15 year old daughter has been gluten free for 6 months. It took us years to figure out, but now that we have, she finally feels great! Her bread memory? Hmmm….where to start! She misses lots but I would have to say her grilled cheese. Now you have to understand, my daughter is NOT comfortable in the kitchen.we used to tease her about going to college because she WAS gonna starve….that is until she mastered the grilled cheese sandwich!! She was so proud of herself….and little did we know it was making her sick! Anyways, we have tried lots of frozen GF breads but to a teenager, they are unpalatable. We found a GF bakery but its uber expensive, and as a single mom, I can’t afford it all the time. Cant wait to start making our own and get her back to the stove flipping her own sandwiches! :)

    This giveaway is fantastic. I pre-ordered your book from Amazon on October 21. I have so many good glutten-y bread memories from baking with my mother – soft pretzels, cinnamon rolls, prize-winning dinner rolls at the county fair (recipe from my great-grandmother). I’d love to be able to share these with my celiac daughter – who is a trooper despite some epic gluten-free bread fails recently (scrape icky stuff into trash can, try again).

    You know I’ve ordered it because I forwarded you the note Amazon sent me saying it was delayed! ;)

    My favorite bread memory is making bread for my family for about 6 years, until my daughter’s diagnosis. I have weak joints due to another auto-immune disorder (yay!) :( so I never thought I’d be able to make real bread (because I couldn’t knead it). Once I found a great recipe and tweaked it just a little, I was able to make it in my Kitchenaid mixer. I loved the smell of the yeast, honey, and whole grain wheat flour from the beginning of the process to the end of baking. I loved how high it rose above the pan and how effortlessly it seemed to do it. The towel I covered it with never stuck to it. I miss all of that.

    But… getting to “meet” everyone on this blog and so many friendly people within the celiac/GF community has certainly been wonderful!

    Howdy Nicole,
    Had my book pre-ordered long ago. I cannot wait for it to arrive. I have yet to perfect your white sandwich bread. Although I am not the one who has Celiac Disease, I still get to see the look on my daughters face when I make her grilled cheese or even a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. She’s 6, so that look is priceless. She gives me the big smile and says “mmm mommy, this is soo good!” I’ll never get over that. :D So many thanks to you for making that happen. ♥♥♥

    I pre-ordered back on May 8th. The screen shot from amazon shows I already purchased it at the top.
    My favorite bread memory was eating Chocolate Babka from Bread Works in Pittsburgh. They only make it twice a year so that made it extra special. Plus, it reminded me of the very funny Seinfield episode about the babka. :-)
    I can’t wait until my book arrives!

      No problem. I know you, Alexis! I trust you. :) And the Seinfeld reference makes me think of another episode where they say, “I think we’ll all be comfortable within the confines of the honor system.” ;)

    Just pre-ordered the bread book on Amazon – can’t wait to receive it! My favorite gluten bread memory? Dense, chewy, New York style Italian bread with gouda cheese. I could eat it by the loaf (back then!)! Thanks so much for this opportunity!
