Carrot lovers poppy seed bread : page 32

This bread has excellent taste and texture, and is a great way to eat more carrots! I did have to add quite a bit more water to the dough (probably 1/4 cup more) and omitted the orange zest. This bread slices well.

Cottage cheese dill bread : page 33

Love this bread. It's a great way to use up leftover cottage cheese. I've made it as written (olive oil for the fat), and also done adaptations. Good with any herbs such as rosemary, Greek oregano, etc. Can add other soft cheeses in small amounts to make up the full amount of cottage cheese, and I've also replaced 1/4 cup of the flour with ground flax for a bit more fibre. Usually needs a few more tablespoons of flour. A light bread that rises well and is delicious.

Sourdough cornmeal bread : page 66

Excellent bread that uses one cup of sourdough starter. I added a bit more water to the recipe since my starter was a bit thicker than usual.
