"I made this to go with soup for my family and it was excellent. It went together very fast, uses ingredients that I usually have on hand, and tastes great. We will be enjoying this bread again soon!"

"OMG, this is incredible. It comes together so quick and is excellent. The texture is moist and airy and the flavor is wonderful. I will be making this often in the future. Will go well with anything, Italian dishes, salad, soup, and just for eating alone (yes, it's that good!)"

"The only problem I have with this bread is that I want it all for myself!

I have subbed sour cream if I find I'm out of yogurt with great results."

"This is excellent...don't be afraid to try whole wheat flour instead of white if you try to follow a whole grain diet."

"I made this in mass quantity to serve 200! It turned out just as good as if I made it for 10. It is a wonderful bread, very simple to make, but tastes like something from a nice bakery. Yum!
