      This is a great recipe with fabulous directions. Even though I had never made focaccia before, the conversational instructions made me feel like I had a friend in the kitchen. I added about 2 Tbsp. fresh rosemary to the dough, and sprinkled more fresh rosemary on top, which really gave it a nice flavor. I did need about 1/3 cup more warm water to get the right consistency, but like you said, no biggie. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

      We loved this foccacia bread! It was served for our Christmas Eve feast. To prepare the dough I used the dough blade on my brand new KitchenAid food processor and it worked perfectly! I used large flake kosher salt from Trader Joe's and it gave the crust a wonderful crunch and texture. Definitely making this again and extra loaves to freeze for later. Thank you~ cg~
