Reviews for Cracked Pepper Bread
"Very flavorful and good. Herbs were not overpowering."
"Thank you Joy and TOH for this recipe. See this bread pictured on my page. No kidding, the house did smell wonderful when it was baking. Love the flavor. It is subtle as not to overpower a nice sandwich. Absolutely will make again. Halving this recipe worked well for me. Followed manufacturers instructions when loading my bread machine. :)"
