My First Time

I have a few regularly scheduled lunch dates. One of the restaurants we visit serves amazing turkey sandwiches on focaccia bread. We’ve asked several times about it, they act like they don’t hear us. I think it must be like the Colonel’s secret recipe.

I was excited to find an easy recipe!  

So excited that I bought all the ingredients and made it!

~ My First Time ~

and it turned out great!

I followed the recipe exactly, well almost!

It’s on page 37.  I even made the stuff on page 33!

(click above-to go over, it’s the beautiful Spring Issue and it’s free :)

I’ll just be honest, making bread scares me.  It’s not like it’s going to eat me or something,  maybe the bread should be scared of me!

If they’d just tell us where to buy that darn bread,

I would not have to do this!


I said I followed the recipe exactly, but actually, I didn’t have fresh rosemary.  

I can only imagine that will make it even better.  

I will add more tomatoes too, YUM! 

It smells so good, wish this was smellivision :)

Go over and check out the magazine, you’ll be glad you did!

Do you bake?

    Oh yum! This looks delicious and I don’t even like tomatoes! I love to bake, although I can’t remember the last time I made bread.

    Wow, this looks so good…
    I have never tried making any type of bread. My daughter likes to make bread! I will share this recipe with her the next time she is home, and maybe…(wink) she will make it for us!!
    Have a great week!
    All the Best,

    You (and House of Fifty) have inspired me to bake bread without the aid of my trusty bread maker! I’m also going to make the roasted tomato spaghetti for dinner tomorrow. Thanks!

    I love focaccia bread, but have never made it. We are very lucky to have a fabulous local bakery who makes a killer focaccia!

    This post made me hungry ;-<

    I’m so glad you had good luck, Debbie. There’s nothing like warm bread right out of the oven. I took this to a potluck once and it was gone before we even got a bite! :)

    This should not be a night time post – now I am starving!! I am not a big baker (too exact for me) but I did go to a cooking class long ago where we made our own foccacia – it was delicious! Of course, I don’t discriminate against any kind of bread!

    Looks delicious! I haven’t baked many breads from scratch, but it’s definitely something that I’d like to get around to one day.
