      This is a wonderful, wonderful recipe! Enjoyable to make, not really all that difficult and fantastic results. I only had active dry yeast and used 2 packets (.25 oz each) and this worked perfectly for me. The dough was so easy to work with, smelled heavenly while cooking, and produced a beautiful (and huge!) loaf of delicious bread. Thanks so much for sharing your family recipe!
