Potato and Herb Focaccia

Potato and Herb Focaccia, up close

One of the wonderful things about focaccia is that it is a bread that can be topped with just about anything, so you never run out of options when making it. Potatoes might not be the first thing that spring to mind when looking for something to top off a loaf of bread, but they turn this focaccia into a very savory and hearty bread. ... Read More »

Onion Focaccia

Onion Focaccia

Focaccia is a great yeast bread to learn to make. It doesn’t require any special shaping and it requires only a short rising time. It is also versatile. You can eat it almost straight out of the oven, while it is still crispy on the outside and hot and soft inside, but you can also bake it a day in advance and use it for ... Read More »

Rosemary and Garlic Focaccia

Rosemary and Garlic Focaccia

It’s funny what inspires you to bake, sometimes. This Rosemary and Garlic Focaccia was inspired by some really, really mediocre bread that I was served at an Italian restaurant recently. It is completely unlike that bread, and it was the fact that I was wishing for some good focaccia with lots of garlicky olive oil that make me come home and bake my own. I ... Read More »

It’s great that more people are venturing into the exploration of homemade yeast breads these days. Yeast breads are really easy to make (if difficult to perfect) and it’s fun to play with the dough. It never fails to make me smile when I see a recipe for a “no knead” or “no roll” bread. While many of these recipes turn out fantastic breads, and ... Read More »

A large container of fresh heirloom tomatoes and a block of feta cheese can be combined into many things, though I’d be willing to bet that more often than not, they end up in some kind of salad or pasta dish. Tomatoes, cucumber and feta is a classic combination that makes a side dish to match just about any meal. The delicious combination of feta ... Read More »

Dried Fruit Focaccia

After seeing an article in my local newspaper for Martha Stewart’s Dried Fruit Focaccia, I wanted to make it. I love focaccia and one that is lightly sweetened and packed with dried fruit sounded delicious in general, as well as seeming like a good winter bread. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the recipe in my rather large pile o’ newspaper clippings and, eventually, opted to abandon ... Read More »

Tomato and Sweet Onion Focaccia

I was kneading the dough for what seemed like ages. It felt grainy and rough no matter what I did. Then I remembered that there was cornmeal in this dough and was glad that there was no one in the room to see how silly I was being. This focaccia is based on this Cooking Light recipe. I started it without thinking too much about ... Read More »
