    Made this again but a little bit differently. Formed a round loaf style bread and added pic.

    Cooking Light almost always puts out a good product. I like this bread a lot. It has a nice chew to it, just like the store bought focaccia.

    Loxy, this looks really good and my motto is, if 2 cloves of garlic are good 3 or more are better. Ha! Thanks!
