  1. Excellent bread Geema, thanks for sharing! Our bread maker only makes 1 1/2 or 2 lb loaves, so we set it on 1 1/2 and made it anyway and it turned out great!! The seasonings give it a yummy taste, very Italian. We served it with pasta and salad, perfect match. We will be making it again often!!
  2. Very good unique tasting bread that is a great addition to pasta meals. I changed some of the ingredient amounts so I could make a larger loaf including adding 1 cup of whole wheat flour and adjusted other ingredients accordingly. Thanks Geema for a unique bread recipe that we will be making again.
  3. A delicious red tangy bread, great toasted with lots of butter. My loaf turned out very small - I don't know whether I did any thing wrong, but it was good because I always throw out half a stale loaf of bread!
  4. This bread has great texture and a wonderful flavor. I served it with a pasta dish and the whole loaf was gone! Thanks for the recipe.
  5. Wow! This bread is wonderful! It's just exploding with flavor, and is light and airy at the same time. I made the bread by hand, doubling the recipe. For double the amount of tomato paste, I needed exactly one small 170 g can, which was convenient. I chickened out on the nutmeg, though. I left out the nutmeg, but used 1/4 teaspoon each dried basil, oregano and thyme. I am quite happy with the flavor. I did have dried onion, but used 2 cloves grated garlic, raw, in the dough. I used the larger amounts given for milk and yeast. The amount of flour given was just about right. I made the dough into rolls, and the double batch yielded 16 45-g, 6 60-g and 1 90-g rolls. Thank you very much for sharing this wonderful recipe with us.


<p>Life often interupts our comfortable routines in very unexpected ways and in the past three years I've certainly faced some challenges.&nbsp; As a health nut who ate mostly vegetarian I was beyond shocked to discover that I was diabetic.&nbsp;<img title=Yell src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-yell.gif border=0 alt=Yell /> I shouted and rebelled and cried.&nbsp; But the good news is that I can control my glucose levels simply by eating very low carb.&nbsp; What a complete turn around it was to&nbsp;pass up&nbsp;all my high carb vegetarian foods like grains, and veggies and embrace meat!&nbsp;<img title=Surprised src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-surprised.gif border=0 alt=Surprised /> I've adjusted to this limited diet and thanks to Zaar can eat a nice variety of healthful meals.</p> <p>&nbsp;The next challenge was a freakish fall I took while in New York with my daughter that left me paralyzed and in much pain. I thank God that I am so much better today after more than two years recovery, with total mobility and just some minor pain in my arms and hands.&nbsp; Cooking and communicating here was not really on my priority list.&nbsp; But, I am back in action and ready to cook, take photos, and enjoy this wonderful community of friends.<img title=Laughing src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-laughing.gif border=0 alt=Laughing /></p> <p>My husband and I continue to enjoy our grandchildren and being closely involved with their day to day activities.&nbsp; I am also the proud owner of a sweet grey and white cat who came to my door as a little kitten 6 months ago.&nbsp; Her name is Bonny and you can read her story here:&nbsp; <a href= target=_blank></a>.</p> <p>&nbsp;When I have time for myself, I love to do all things artistic...drawing, pastels, paper craft, scrapbooking, and most recently jewelry making.&nbsp; I have set up a website on ETSY ( shown on this page by my website)and you can go there and see my creations.<img title=Cool src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-cool.gif border=0 alt=Cool /><br /><br /><br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /></p>
