mehkashi (10/16/2006)….i enjoyed both preparing and eating it.

twinkle83 (8/29/2006)….This recipe did very well with my family. Everybody liked it. It was very tasty. Thanks

lizseger (3/9/2006)….awesome recipe — can also use some whey if you have it instead of the water. (note to the person who said the old version of the recipe was ‘disappointing’ — when you make bread, you always add liquid or flour as needed. start small! the amounts listed are often maximums. this is standard in bread recipes.)

ADMIN (10/10/2004)….Thanks for the feedback and for pointing out the problem. We have fixed the recipe. Thanks
