Rosemary Focaccia from Dough made in a Bread Machine

Totally irresistible. Warm from the oven. Dipped in olive oil or sliced for a sandwich, this Italian yeast bread will make you happy. Focaccia, pronounced "fuh-KA-cha," is a type of Italian yeast bread. The dough is flavored with olive oil and topped with herbs. If you have visited here before you know how much I love my bread machine. I simply add the ingredients to the pan, and the machine does just the right amount of mixing, kneading and proofing. When it is finished I have a lovely dough ready to make rosemary focaccia.

It is Well by Kristene DiMarco, You Make Me Brave

Think on These Things thoughts from John...

I recently watched a song video titled, It is Well, that inspired this week’s Sunday post. I've included the video at the bottom of this post. I was blown away by the words and the music. Though I really wish I could, I can’t sing. So, when I hear these very talented young people sing like Kristene, my heart praises God that He has given them the ability to write and sing songs that speak to my heart.

Propagating Perennial Herb Rosemary and making Simmering Potpourri

Do you have an herb garden or grow herbs on your windowsill? Do you have a favorite herb for cooking? I have a smallish, 4-foot by 8-foot raised bed where I grow herbs and some annuals. Just the ones I use most often in the kitchen. The aromatic evergreen, rosemary, does really well needing little attention. This perennial herb is super easy to propagate from stem cuttings to make more plants. Rosemary infuses lots of flavor in cooking but it also is a lovely ingredient in this light and clean-smelling, simmering potpourri.
