The bread was good with something else, ie i made bread bowls for chili, but the loaf itself is very bland and tastes like im chewing on yeast and flour

Mm mm...quite delicious on its own. It's a good thing, because when I sliced my loaf, the slices had a gigantic hole in them, so I couldn't use the bread for sandwiches. Don't let that detour you though, the bread was very tasty, and I probably just got unlucky. Thanks for posting!
