Focaccia Bread, So Yummy!!

Shawn A


I don't think I've met a Bread I didn't like!! I have made this plain and with herbs. You can choose for yourself what herbs you want to use, I personally do not like oregano eww.. I have never liked the flavor or the smell something about it just turns me off. I have used rosemary and garlic this was to die for :) So just play with this recipe and make to your liking:)

This is not the focaccia bread in the pic it is my ciabatta bread, I didnt have a pic of the focaccia yet :( I will post one as soon as I make it again
