Reviews forSuperb Herb Bread
"I finally made this bread after clipping the recipe years ago and I don't know why I waited so long. Not only is this bread delicious, it is actually one of the easiest breads I have ever made. The bread machine does all the kneading and then you let it rise and then bake it and it's done. I thought that I wouldn't like the combination of herbs/spices in this bread, but when baked, they are delicious and not overpowering. Great recipe!!!!"
