I have been playing around with Rosemary and when I came across this recipe on Gwen's blog, I saw how she organized it with pictures and step by step directions. I just might be able to do this! I am usually terrible with making bread but I was determined to face my fears on this one. It came out fantastic! It took a few days to make because the "starter dough" sits for at least 8 hours in the refrigerator.
The only thing different with my recipe is I added 1/2 cup of finely chopped black olives into the dough the same time I added the chopped rosemary. It was a hit! I served the warm loaf with dipping oil- olive oil and a few Italian seasonings sprinkled into it on a small plate.

I had fun watching the baking soda react with the butter mixture. It ultimately turned the cookie into a crispy edged/ soft middle creation.

I have been having a lot of fun this winter sewing on the nice up-to-date Bernina machine my mom gave me! I started sewing nursing covers, matching mommy-daughter aprons and chic burp cloths. Here are some pictures of what I've made and the links are at the bottom of the page. Stay tuned- there will be new items weekly!

WOW! Fresh Rosemary is my few favorite herb this week! I had found bone-in/ skin-on chicken breasts on sale for $0.99 per lb and since I don't often cook chicken with bone or skin, I went directly to the web and searched for a good recipe. I came across a blog that I just LOVED and enjoyed all her pictures. You can check out her recipe here on Simply Yummy Goodness.
I did something a little differently by taking a spring of rosemary and sliding it directly under the skin of each breast. It gave the meat a great flavor! Rubbing the skin with olive oil really made the skin crispy. I served my chicken with macaroni and cheese and asparagus since that's what I had on hand and my husband never refuses mac & cheese. It was a splendid dish and I am looking forward to trying more recipes with my fresh rosemary.
