Despite the fact that we eat clean and low carb 80% of the time, my nickname in my house is “the bread truck”. Nice huh? Well…..I love me some carbs. What can I say? Whatevs. Anyway I’ve also gotten pretty darn good at making homemade bread, and once you make it from scratch you never can go back. I also make homemade pasta on the weekends and oh my. Is anyone else obsessed with the bread they bring out at Macaroni Grill? I am. I could just eat that and salad and be fat and happy. So when I made this recipe and it tasted just like it….I freaked! It’s amazing and you should go make it right now to accompany watching The Bachelor tonight! Monday’s are the best…..when The Bachelor is on 😃. Ciao!
