My Very First Focaccia Bread

I really am new to baking. Well, I mean baking anything that isn't from a box or partially pre-baked and frozen. So, when I used this simple and easy focaccia bread recipe, which I found online, and it actually turned out, I was just tickled. Really. I was so excited that I felt like a little kid and so I took a picture of it, ha. I didn't have any thyme but it still tasted so good. My kids just gobbled it up. I'd like to make it again when I have some herbs and other good things to add to it. But here it is, my very first focaccia bread. Actually, my very first any-kind-of-bread that tasted yummy.

Here is an excelent formula for Focaccia, it is my go to formula because it has always been great. Have made many varieties, onion, rosemary, thyme and this past week I did a vanilla, cinnamon,sugar to eat for breakfast (as good as any sweet roll or cinnamon bread!

Give it a try its easy, fairly quick and as far as I can tell "NO FAIL" and I am also a new bread baker

I found a history of Focaccia Bread. It's a member of a family of common Mediterranean and Middle-Eastern flat breads. I had know idea it had so many uses and was so good for you. I included the link.

If you're like me, baking bread can become a pretty strong obsession!  ;-)
