Apparently people don't usually think of fresh bread for a potluck, but I made these to take along as part of my contribution of such an event last week, & the bread was a big hit! Loved making 'em, too! Nothing like some fresh bread for a satisfied feeling! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
