Adding this to my to-buy list. Simple, no-fuss recipes for things like English muffins and crumpets. Good photos, clear instructions, measurements in all formats.

Recipes were full of grammatical and spelling errors - sometimes hard to follow. Completely turned me off the book.

The author gives warnings for those who don't have a listed ingredient and decide to wing it. She explains why certain substitutes won't work, or won't give as nice a result.
