Donnie Currie. Taunton, $19.99 trade paper (208p) ISBN 978-1-62710-395-4
When leisurely hours in the kitchen aren’t a reality, home bakers can take refuge in Cookistry blogger Currie’s collection of make-ahead breads, including loaves, buns, breadsticks, flatbreads, croissants, pizzas, and Danish pastry. Recipes are organized by prep days and baking day. Concise, numbered steps lead readers through the mixing process (by stand mixer, hand-held mixer, or kneading by hand) and rising times, if necessary, with the final quick step of baking. Enticing sweet recipes include a candied-ginger bread and chocolate buns, while savory options such as Chicago-style pan pizza , and a bacon, tomato, and cheddar loaf can be centerpieces at mealtime. Gluten-free options include a seed and nut bread, dinner rolls, and flatbread. Currie provides a straightforward, easy-to-follow collection for new bakers and those looking for ways to save time.
