    I have made 7 loafs of this bread to date. It is the easiest, lightest, and best tasting bread I have ever made.

    This is some tasty bread! Light, delicious, and not too hard to make. I recommend salt, chives, rosemary, and thyme on the top, with olive oil as well. I will most certainly be making it again.

    Used red star yeast and bread flour it came out great especially exciting because it was my first attempt at bread. The recipe is clear, exact, and easy to follow even telling you to use a serrated knife rather than smooth. Gonna try it with all purpose flour next time just to experiment.

    Perfect for Beginners Very soft italian bread also very easy to make. I started adding herbs like fresh oregano, thyme, and basil and making sub size buns out if this recipe and it works great for that.

    I've never had success with breads. This recipe was very easy to follow and the result was amazing. The whole house smells delicious! The bread itself is soft on the inside with a good crust. I highly recommend this for a simple loaf bread for dipping (appetizers, soups, etc).

    Very good bread recipe. It was a nice accompaniment to a beef vegetable soup. Makes a nice soft loaf perfect with a smear of butter.
