Olive Oil Rosemary Bread

By Greengirl @GrinGarl

I've been meaning to make olive oil bread for a while now but every time I set my mind on it, I'd read about another bread combo and the olive oil was left behind again and again. Last week, while reading my favorite blogs I saw Sara's olive oil rolls . I knew it's time to roll up my sleeves and make some bread

But I didn't want to make regular olive oil bread, wanted something more. Looking through my pantry and my fridge in order for that something to go well with olive oil I laid my eyes on some rosemary sprigs

Perfect. Olive oil and rosemary seemed like a perfect combo for my bread. And trust me, it was.  After all, who doesn't love dipping some home made bread in some rosemary infused good quality olive oil? I for one don't know anyone.

Now that I knew how I wanted my bread it was time to do some kneading, well my stand mixer does the work, but I take credit for it, don't we all? The result : the taste was out of this world. Olive oil kept the bread moist and airy and the rosemary gave it a great flavor and aroma.
Let's turn the oven on and start baking
