@HP in NY    There are bread machine recipes online.  Just Google it.  You don't need to buy a book.  All the big manufacturers have their user's manuals online too.

i have one I use all the time---by Tom Lacalamita---the ultimate Bread machine cookbook----good recipes that seem to turn out as they should. Been using this book since bread machines were the new thing. He was on the Q years ago too. Got this from a seller online for under $5.

Bread Machine Magic, Revised Edition by Linda Rehberg and Lois Conway. The revised edition has all the recipes the original has but the original has recipes for 1 or 1 1/2 lb & the Revised Edition has recipes for 1, 1 1/2 or 2 lb loaf. All the recipes we have tried have been really good. You can get a copy on Ebay for $5 or less.

I also downloaded a free PDF of Beth Hensperger The Bread Bible.

The King Arthur Flour website has a lot of bread machine recipes. This has been my source of many recipes for bread.
