|Olive Oil Bread|
Olive Oil bread is my favorite but it takes a bit more time and as I hate wasting food, need to plan it right so that the day old bread can be used for sandwiches, toast, etc. My neighbors and friends think I am "Martha Stewart" but I'm really not, I just follow directions very well and plan ahead.
A good bread maker is my secret because it does all the work for me. Combining, kneading and rising. All I do is fill it up with ingredients and then take out the finished dough. I never use my bread maker to actually bake the bread as not only does the bread come out in a strange shape that is not easy to use but the crust is usually too hard. Not to mention the strange cutout in the center where the dough hook is. I should call my bread maker a dough maker.
All this talk about bread has just helped me decide what to make for dinner: focaccia and some of the beauties that you see below.
