      Oh god! This was heavenly! A lot of work, but it was worth it! I was disappointed I only got to have ONE piece - everyone else inhaled it. Well, that's part of the joy of cooking for more than just yourself!

      Outstanding Focaccia bread. As usual your instructions and timing were perfect. This went together so easily that anyone could make it. I didn't use all of the tomatoes on top as listed, but next time I will. I did alter the herb combination to 2 tsp Italian seasoning, 2 tsp oregano, about 1/2 tsp of basil and 1 tsp of savory (could not find summer savory) and it worked well for us. The bread rose perfectly. I'm so happy with the outcome. Thanks EV for making me look good.
