  2. Just baked this bread and it's pretty good. The instructions are not complete, did not say when to put in flour, hopefully someone who makes it will realize how to add.<br/>I could use a bit more thyme but other wise it good.
  3. This is the only recipe I've found for something sweet that can use my overabundance of Lemon Thyme and Lemon Balm. It's beautiful, not too sweet, and freezes very well. I love how much lemon flavor you can get from the herbs alone.


<p>I lived in Western NY all my life. I love collecting cookbooks and recipes. My favorite cookbooks are the stuffed cougar from richmond, VA and southern living. I love to pick up cookbooks in different areas of the country especially ones put together from homecooks like the fundraiser type. I love to try the recipes that you submit and really thank you all so much for making me a pretty decent cook. I submit recipes i find new, unusual, special...not always on the website so they may look more different then my reviewed recipes... but they are alllll good. give them a try!!!!</p>
