I'm joining in with Rhonda at Down to Earth today for her ‘On my mind feature'….
This is a Friday photo feature that anyone with a blog can join. To take part, post a photo on your own blog, write a short caption explaining it, and link it back to here from your blog by saying you're part of “On my mind”.
On my mind today is…..
This was my first try at a foccacia and i am really pleased with how it turned out. I originally went searching for a recipe after Miss Teen said they now had focaccia and turkish bread at the school canteen and could we buy some for home as she liked it! Well, i'm not paying $5 a loaf for ‘specialty' breads so thought it was time to give something new a try!
I just used a basic focaccia dough recipe but also warmed some olive oil and added garlic and rosemary from the garden which i then brushed over the top before putting in the oven…..the little indents held the yummy oil and made a crunchy, crispy, fragrant loaf. I really must get more creative with breadmaking….it's not hard, i just need to step out of the rut!
Do you have a favourite breadmaking recipe on your blog?….i would love you to leave a link to share or comment if you do. Right now i would like to find a recipe for turkish bread….it is a bit heavy for me but Miss Teen would like to give it a try for herself and i'm all for encouraging cooking!
Anyway, this is the recipe i used (with a few of my own modifications as all cooks do!)

Hi Jode, thanks for stopping by my blog today. That focaccia looks yummo and I’ve searched high and low for a turkish bread recipe, so I’ll have to keep a watch to see if you find one.
A couple of our favourite bread recipes are Sun-dried Tomato, Basil and Parmesan, and Italian herb bread, I’ll have to drag out the recipes for you!
Have a great weekend 🙂
My 25 year old son loves Focaccia bread with jalapeno peppers and sun dried tomatoes.
