We would like to especially thank Hungry Minds and Holly McGuire for asking us to write
Bread Machines For Dummies,
Linda Ingroia for keeping things on track, and Angela Miller for bringing us all together.
We are extremely grateful for our very patient and understanding project editor, Tim Gallan. It was Tim's confidence that this book would be a reality that kept us researching, testing and writing. Every author should, at least once in their lifetime, have an editor as cool, calm, and collected as Tim.
It's amazing how directions can appear to be written clearly until they come under the scrutiny of a skillful eye of one who is quick to question them. For making this book not only grammatically correct, but also make sense, we thank Ben Nussbaum and Gwenette Gaddis, our copy editors.
We are thankful for the luxury of a very professional and competent recipe tester, Patricia Waldoch, who tested, tasted, and tweaked our recipes with extreme carefulness, checking to make sure the ingredient amounts were exact, the oven temperatures were accurate, and the times were correct.
Since a picture is worth a thousand words, we hope that you enjoy as much as we do the quirky, wonderfully descriptive illustrations of artist Liz Kurtzman.
We also want to thank the Production crew at Hungry Minds for making this book look so nice.
We're proud of this book; please send us your comments through our Hungry Minds Online Registration Form located at
