Rosemary foccacia

I reeeeaaally don't know if I'm cut out for making bread ... the waiting is terrible! I managed a 2+1 hour rise rise for this, but overnight? I don't think I could stand it. Kristen, in a brilliant stroke of empty-refrigerator-as-mother-of-invention, put together some excellent (and photogenic) edamame hummus for sandwiches this afternoon.

All and all the bread was fun and turned out decent enough, but I'm sure it'll take a few more tries before I make something I'm really happy with. The recipe I used was basically a pizza dough recipe with a little bit more oil (I also tried subbing 1/2 cup of flour for cornmeal, but I wouldn't recommend that). The dough was certainly wetter than french bread, but I have a feeling it's supposed to be even wetter (and that feeling's name is Peter Reinhardt)

I won't post a recipe, but I did want to put up a couple pictures, mostly so the blog doesn't think I forgot about it.


  1. Okay, I would never dare to try the bread recipe (I don't bake... at ALL) but the edamame hummus sounds delicious. Is it just edamame blended with garlic, olive oil, salt, (tahini?), cumin, paprika? Or different? :)

  2. yep, with lemon. no tahini. :)
