Fabulous Homemade Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
I just bought a Bosch Universal Plus...WHAT A MACHINE!! -that's a whol 'nother review! I found this recipe because we are not big fans of 100 percent whole wheat breads...they just dont feel soft enough, we LOVE super soft bread. I thougt I would try this because over 400 people CANNOT be wrong! WELL TEHY WERE NOT WRONG! THis bread is easy to make and uses ingredients I always have on hand. I ended up having to use a cup more of flour as it kept sticking to the bowl (I weighed not scooped the flour, so maybe that's why?) The recipe doesnt say how long to knead it in the machine, so I did 5 minutes on the number 3 speed setting. BOY did this have the best gluten strands ever. The dough is SUPER sticky but reading the reviews, it was what I expected. The dough rose (actually almost tripled) in 30 minutes and it they rose in the pans in 30 minutes (to a HUGE height). The loaves smelled wonderful, baked perfect and are so deliciously soft with the perfect crust! I brushed butter over the tops while loaves were hot which melted in and gave the crust a gorgeous look and taste. I made three loaves and froze the other 3, which I will use for loaf bread and dinner rolls in the not too distant future. The title says it all.....it truly is FABULOUS HOMEMADE BREAD. It's so good it's a shame to put the sandwhich ingredients on it!

Fig and Olive Tapenade

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
I have to say, I am a tapenade freak. I love all types. I am a purist. LOVE it just on a cracker or bread. Have no need for cream or goat cheese with it (but I bet thats good too) - I made this with only a few differences, I added the chopped toasted walnuts to the tepenade. I used 1 cup olives to 1 cup figs and threw the whole thing in the food processor to finely chop everything. I like it fairly smooth, but still grainy. OMG! I do believe it's the best tapenade I have ever had....ANYWHERE. My husband was skeptical....come on FIGS in the tapenade? BUT WOW.....it knocked our socks off. It will be a family favorite. THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS!
