Easy, simple, fast, directions are spot on as far as directions go, ingredients are right on as well, however if you want more or less or wish to admit any of the spices it is very easy to do so, I used all but the Basil as my store did not have it in stock, and the bread turned out wonderfully. If you have little or no experience with bread, this is a great recipe, easy enough to follow, with simple ingrediets, and fast enough that you will not lose interest. As with all bread recipes, I suggest that you proof your yeast before using,since we really have no idea how old it truelly is, 1/4 cup of warm water and a teaspoon of white sugar, add yeast, stir,if it puffs up within 5 minutes it is fine to use, if not toss it out and get fresh, and I rise my bread in my microwave, I heat a cup of water in a glass measureing cup for 5 minutes or until boiling, the tuck it in the back and put my covered bread in and let it rise, it serves as a homemade proofing room, I can control, heat, and humidity during this crucial time and I always have perfect bread. When your bread is finished let cool for 3 minutes, then bread with melted butter or olive oil and then place a dish towel overt he bread, you will always have a soft delectible crust, even your kids will eat every last crumb!
