MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 4, 2013

Getting ready to make this bread for the the fourth time. It has been a huge hit with everyone that I have served it to! I hosted a baby shower brunch a few weeks ago and mad the bread in muffing pans and there were none left. The bread is very dense, so you don't need a big piece and I strongly recomend a good quality blue cheese so that the flavor doesn't get lost.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 5, 2013

I'm sorry to say none of my family cared for this bread. We ended up throwing the remainder of the loaf away which we never do. The herbs were overpowering and overall it just had a strange taste. We are used to yeast breads so this one seemed especially dense to us.
