"Delicious and easy, although mine did take a bit more flour than what the recipe calls for."

"My daughter and I were on a "roll" this Sunday. I wanted to try something nice , but not the white bread. Something to go with home made chicken and noodle dumplings. I added some different herbs I prefer and garlic powder. I really do not like to make bread. I was hesitant. But this bread had a great rise and so easy to work with. If you are trying a home made loaf of bread the first time, THIS is the one. And how heavenly it smells baking!! Thanks for such a great recipe."
