  1. So good and easy to make. I made the dough in my bread machine and put the ingredients in a little differently to accommodate the machine. First in all the liquid ingredients and then the dry with the yeast last. After the dough was done, I patted it out on a greased cookie sheet and baked it free-form. By the time my oven was preheated, the focaccia was ready to bake. Made for Best of Tag.
  2. This bread is AMAZING! And so easy to throw together. I just loved the look of it to and will be serving for company at some point later, for sure. My dough only took 2 cups of all purpose flour, so make sure you add a little at a time. I used regular white onion, reduced the oil by half in the dough and did not need to brush the top of the dough with olive oil as the onion mix had enough in it. I used crumbled up dry rosemary. My stand mixer did the kneading for me and I free formed the dough on a baking sheet. Made for 1-2-3 Tag.
  3. This is the cutest, sexiest little focaccia I've ever made! I made as directed. It rose perfectly and my guests nearly passed out from anticipation since I made them wait 'til dinner to serve! It is delicious! Thanks, Mary! Made for <b>Photo Tag.</b>
  4. I only did the bread part, and used a different filling. The bread came out great, light but with a firm texture to support the filling. I think it would work well with smaller, serving-sized shapes as well as in one loaf. I did do two rises, one as a ball of dough and one after being shaped.
  5. This was really good!!!! Instead of putting in a pan, I just free formed it on a cookie sheet. Sooooo yummy!!!!


I have two boys who will usually eat most things I put in front of them. As a single mom I use them as my guinea pigs....sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I have a huge garden, blueberry and blackberry bushes. I am always looking for a new recipe. I have three cats (Xiao Mao, which means little cat in Chinese, Pumpkin and Max) and two border collies, Lucy and Grace.
