  1. I have been attempting to make focaccia. I love my sandwich in focaccia bread. I guess this is the sign for me to make some.
    Yours really look awesome. It is on my "must try" list.

  2. There is nothing better than home-made bread, especially if you make it yourself :) Hope you will enjoy it! And thank you for visiting my blog :)
