... look really, really good! I enjoy your posts! Did you bake this in a combo cooker? The one that is shown? I have several pots I bake in, but am thinking of getting a combo cooker. What size would you recommend for bread baking?

The breads do best in the 3qt combo cooker, I think you'll find. Others are generally too large for bread, the 3 qt is just right. I got mine online, it is a Lodge, sometimes they are not that easy to come by in that size. Maybe others will have different opinions, happy baking whatever you do. Jean P. (VA)

... Jean P. for your input. Anyone else would like to share their experience with the combo cookers?

Now you need some fried chicken wings to go with your blue-cheese bread!

Looks fantastic.

The outside looks fantastic.  Can't wait to see the inside.  The inside is as good as the outside!  What a beautiful crumb color too.

Nice baking!
