Hi Everyone!

So I am no baking novice, but when it comes to baking bread I am not nearly as experienced as I am when it comes to cookies!

I have previously made successful white bread (with some help from everyone here in the past) and was hoping that I could get a few pointers before taking on my first Italian loaf, especially since I am making it for my future in-laws this weekend!

Floyd's Italian Bread

September 4, 2007 - 5:53am -- Trishinomaha

I made Floyd's Italian bread this week-end and it is probably one of the most flavorable breads I've made since I started baking last January. The recipe is simple and makes a lot of dough. I made three smaller loaves instead of two. Shared some with the neighbors last night who had just gotten home from a nine hour road trip and they loved it. We had almost a half a loaf (!) with a shrimp scampi angel hair pasta dish last night - so very good.
