"Was just looking for a herbed bread recipe to make for supper, and this looked good - it was super good bread! I did add another tablespoon of milk after the first 5 minutes of mixing, and it came out beautiful. Smelled delicious while it was baking, too :)"

"I tried this recipe today. I changed it slightly. I used 100% whole wheat instead of white and 1/2 cup fresh green onions instead of the dried onion. I also added a little garlic powder. I had a little trouble with the wet/dry ratio on this recipe which I think is why the top flopped in a little (maybe a little too much yeast for how much flour). I ended up adding a LOT more milk than this recipe calls for and 1/2 cup less flour. The flavor of this bread is delicious. It would be awesome with cheese or anything tomato based. Mmmmm."
