I just want to thank you. Years ago (1995?) I purchased video bread on
VCR tapes. I made bread 4 times a week for my family. When the DVD player became
popular i replaced the tapes with them.
My children are grown now and have children of their own. They still talk about the fresh bread they would come home from school to find. Now they would like me to teach their wives bread making! So their children feel the same warmth and experience the wonderful smell of fresh bread when they are growing up. Without even knowing I was doing it (with your help of course) I have started a tradition in our family. Thank you! From my heart for making that happen.

I rented video pizza 2000 from the Ann Arbor district library. I have made a lot of recipes from online and this video blew them out of the water. I'm really excited to make a vegan pizza with your instructions and I can't wait to rent the rest of your videos. If there are any missing from our library then I will be sure to recommend the rest of them. Thanks!

I just want to say "WOW"! I just LOVE your
videos! I have not even watched all of them yet, but these videos are just
GREAT! I have been a bread baker off and on, but moved and started living in
a travel trailer and have not made a good loaf of bread since my move. After
watching the first video in the series and getting half-way through the Early
Bird Baking, I am so excited to try your recipes and methods to get back to
cooking bread again. We have been buying homemade bread from ladies for up to
$5 a loaf! You are not only very professional, but extremely detailed and
entertaining too! I am SO glad that I took you up on your offer! I can't
wait to go to the website and check it out, too! (BTW - my husband also
watched the videos with me, and he completely agrees with all of my statements
above!!) ....and I really can't wait to start recommending these videos to
our library patrons - I am positive they will be a HIT!

My name is
****, I baked for many years
commercially in the Marine Corp,
***, *******, bakeries and retirement homes. I
was pretty good in what I did. I also am a good cook! But needless to say even
though I made recipes for anywhere from 100 to 500 portions and know how to
convert a recipe up & down I never really did any major baking at home, except
cakes & cookies. Besides, when I did bake, it ended up
to be enough to feed an Army (or Marines) in my case!!
I only baked bread that
didn't involve yeast & was never able to have my
homemade cinnamon rolls come out to my satisfaction!
Then as you already may know, I purchased your video
bread DVDs and wow! What a
wake up I had! Just realizing the fact to adding more yeast to the recipe would
make up that much difference. I have had 2 tongue cancer operations since 2007
and have had over 13 centimeters of my tongue removed! I now can only eat
pureed foods & really don't have any taste buds any more, so I became very
depressed. Well I got tired of that, and my self pity, that I decided to do
something about it. My success in my food service experience is the fact that I
follow the recipes. I baked 2 loaves of your white bread recipe & my wife &
family loved it, So my wife asked me to make cinnamon rolls for her work,
They to came out perfect! I ended up with 42 rolls out of that recipe!
Not 48, Oh well. I want to thank you for getting me back on track.
But the main reason I am
writing you, besides thanking you,
is to ask for more bread recipes, including the
most important sour dough recipe, but mostly the sour dough starter recipe! Also
the best way to keep and store the breads & sweet breads I make,
that I don't give away. Again, Thank you very much! and looking forward
to hear from you.
I started baking bread when I retired about 8 years ago. Bought a lot of books and videos and the like. Most of them worked pretty well. And most of them required 2 to 3 days to make bread.
To be honest, I can't remember where I came across your videos, but am glad I did. I lose track of time anymore, but think it was several months ago I purchased them.
Of all the books and recipes I've accumulated, your method has become the workhorse in "my bakery". Both my wife and I thoroughly enjoy the bread using your method and it doesn't take three days. Just this morning my wife mentioned she was going to visit one of her artist friends and wondered if I could bake some bread for her to take along. So I made two loaves of the basic white bread and added 1/2 cup of toasted sunflower seeds to it. That has become one of our favorites and it makes the best toast ever.
Anyway, thanks again for your great video lessons. They're much appreciated by us and our friends in Phoenix, AZ.
Bill XXXXXHi, I have only recently begun to bake bread at home. I have found your site and the advice so useful and would just like to thank you for the detailed hints and tips you have prepared for this site. I live in London and have yet to find the best way to buy flour but have found that good organic stone ground flowers, though pricey, work very well. Your advice has been the best of all the websites I have looked at. You clearly love baking bread and it is always great to come across such experience and enthusiasm.
