    Kim D.'s Note:

    Nothing is better than smelling fresh rosemary and fresh baking bread! This has been a favorite of mine for several years now. Prep-time includes rising time.

      This is now my favorite, "go to" recipe for focaccia! I made it as directed, with two exceptions: I did not have bread flour, so used regular, all-purpose flour, and also sprinkled a mix of Italian herbs into the flour before mixing. The directions and rising/cooking time were perfect. I did, however, cook the loaves separately; one on a baking stone and one on a baking sheet. The loaf on the baking stone came out the best - crustier and a nicer golden brown. The bread was absolutely delicious and looked wonderful. I'll be using this recipe a LOT - it really doesn't take very long to make, and the taste is scrumptious. Definite winner, Kim!

      Yummmm - this is delicious. Made tonight to go with lasagne and salad - it's just come out of the oven and already half of one loaf is gone. My eldest son has a "thing" for focaccia at the moment so he will be taking some for school lunches. I made it almost exactly to the recipe except, like Lizzie-Babette, I used all-purpose flour. Also I cooked for slightly longer (my oven's slow), it really looks, smells and tastes great. Definitely making this again (and again). Thanks Kim D.
