    me too! I give bread as presents to folks that I know WON'T make homemade bread themselves. Depending on what bread I give, I sometimes include jam, or a coffee mix, or a cocoa mix hope you like it! I got the recipe from, well, Cuban immigrants! LOL!

    I made this yeserday, it looked so easy I had to try it right away. It is a very good. I didn'nt have any seaseme seeds or poppy, so I just mixed some dill in the flour, was very good. Also instead of putting it on a bake sheet, I put it in loaf pans. It can out great. Between me and the boys, we eat a loaf by ourselves. Good one Mos, this recipe I will keep close by, thanks.
