    This was the absolute best Italian bread ever! It's not dense...so soft and sweet! The outside crust isn't too hard...it's perfect!! I added a little Italian Seasoning on top before putting it into the oven and it was wonderful!!!! Thanks Shirleyoma!

    I have been on a mission to make bread for the past three months now. Today is the day!!! oh, i have to agree with jennywren, I am going to go with olive oil instead of veggy oil.
