“This hearty, herb bread goes great with pasta! Use dried tomatoes, not tomatoes that are reconstituted and packed in oil.”

I, too, had the same problem as the first reviewer. In any case, this bread is very tasty. If you like a french bread style, simply remove it from the bread machine after the second rise (it really won't rise that much) and place it in a french bread pan to bake. If you prefer a hearty textured high rise bread, simply add 2T oil (I used garlic flavored olive oil), 1T sugar, 2T gluten and you have a perfectly textured hearty high rise bread. Oh, I also added 5T Parmesan cheese and 1t garlic powder on the second try. This made it oh so flavorful. Thanks Kevin!



I tried this recipe twice and could not get the bread to rise. It sounded so good. What a bummer!



This bread sounded so gooood. I just had to try it in spite of the low rating. I did as reviewer MaggieMcGuire suggested and the loaf came out simply scrumdidlyumptious. My roommate loved it too. Maybe Kevin can make some changes in the instructions for everyone. Then everyone can give this the rating it deserves.
