Adventures in Bread Baking


Last week I baked a loaf of Rosemary Olive Bread from a Weight Watchers cookbook called Turn Up The Flavor. I didn’t have any olives but I had fresh rosemary and all the other ingredients so I made it without the olives. Let me tell you, fresh-baked bread is amazing.  My whole house smelled like rosemary and cracked black pepper while this loaf baked in the oven. I’m proud of my freeform bread-shaping efforts here. I’ve only baked bread once before and I used loaf pans.  This looks like a nice crusty boule from a bakery.

This bread is delicious and dense, especially when toasted and slathered with butter. I see more home-baked bread in my future.
