I keep making this loaf of bread and falling in love with it all over again! It is so easy and tastes the way a homemade loaf of bread should. Smother with a bit of butter and jam and pow! Hit’s ya right in the old carbohydrate breadbox!
Come Monday, I start my 5 week Anti-inflammatory diet and guess what the first thing is you have to give up? Bread! So go out with a bang I say…BANG!
Serve this with my Gnocchi, Sausage Soup and your family will love you!
