No knead bread with olives

As mentioned in a previous post I made AfricanKelli's no knead bread a second time in less then a week but this time I put in black olives and dried rosemary from last summer's crop from my herb kitchen garden.



It was a totally different bread... different texture but still very good and tasty. It would be a perfect bread to have with blue cheese and red wine - yum ! After I had removed it from the oven I brushed the top with a very light coat of virgin olive oil.

Oh that looks good!

Peggy used to make some wonderful breads but she's been on a wheat-free gluten-free diet for a few years now and doesn't bake that good stuff anymore.

I miss it.

I suppose I should take up bread baking but I can imagine the weight I'd gain eating whole loaves of bread myself...

Mmmmmmmmm, that bread looks so delicious. I wish I could just reach in and grab a piece to taste it. Yesterday I made a yummy coffee cake from the latest Harrowsmith Country Living magazine. It is a recipe for Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake, but I substituted orange for the lemon and mixed frozen berries for the blueberries. SOOOOOOOOOO delicious!

Thanks for the comment Jim. I just love how the house smells delicious while my bread is baking. My downfall is that I eat too much bread - I love the stuff.

Colleen - Harrowsmith Country Life Magazine - that is my all time favorite magazine. I just got the latest issue but did'nt get a chance to look at it. I often make the recipes, they are all delicious.
