i'm your recent adaptation

well some of a kind has reached her 200th post, and she is willing to give away one of her awesome aprons. you need to head over and leave her a comment. she wants to know why you wear aprons, how many you have. also if you have a good bread recipe she'd like that too. show some love tell her good job. here is my foccacia recipe.

1 c. warm water(110 degress)
2 1/2 tsp (1 envelope) active dry yeast
3 Tbsp olive oil
5 c flour
2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp fresh herb (i love oregano or rosemary or basil)
1 c milk
garlic salt

put water in bowl, whisk in yeast and 3 Tbsp oil. measure flour, 2 tsp salt, and herb into mixing bowl, stir. add yeast mixture and milk to dry ingredients. mix until all flour is moist, then mix thoroughly for 1 minute. cover bowl let rise 1 hour or until doubled in size. oil a jelly roll pan, turn dough out onto pan. press into pan. dimple dough with fingertips then drizzle with olive oil. sprinkle with garlic salt and more herb if you would like. let rise an hour or until doubled in size. preheat oven to 450 degrees. bake 25 minutes, check 1/2 way through baking, if browning too quickly place another pan beneath. THIS IS MY ADAPTATION OF THE ROSEMARY FOCACCIA RECIPE FROM HOW TO BAKE BY NICK MALGIERI.

Oh, that sounds very good. I've never made focaccia so I think I'll give this recipe a try. Thanks for sharing!
