    Barb Gertz's Note:

    Whether you're an herb gardener or just love cooking with herbs, here's a tasty bread that's sure to highlight any meal. Focaccia, one of Italy's oldest breads, has recently become popular in this country. This makes a wonderful base for pizza, a delicious addition to a bread basket or a first-course appetizer. If you need a homemade hostess gift, consider sharing the bread along with the recipe. NOTE: I use my kitchen aid mixer to mix the focaccia. Time for rising not included.

      Thanks for this Barb, it was great. I used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose. It rose up really nicely, maybe a litle longer than 45 minutes because of the whole wheat. I completely forgot about the last step with the oil, parmesan and rosemary....and it was still good. It will just be that much better next time!

      This was quite easy to make and a real treat. The rosemary, olive and parmesan flavors meld well together for a delicious, savory bread.
