    • Flax Soda Bread

      This wholesome loaf isn't a yeast bread, but you do give it a quick knead. The result is a crunchy seed loaf that is hearty, slightly dense, and a bit sweet. It's a natural next to a bowl of stew, but also consider toasting the slices to serve with honey.

    • Country-Style Semolina Bread

      Semolina flour is more coarsely ground than most wheat flours and is often used for making pasta. Combine it here with bread flour, olive oil, and a drizzle of honey for a crisp-crust loaf of white bread.

    • French Bread

      Make two loaves of French bread or divide the dough further for baguettes, which are thinner and provide more crunch per bite. You can use baguette pans if you like, but baking sheets work just as well.

    • Focaccia

      Italian-style focaccia [foh-KAH-chyah] has a chewy, loose texture with dimples you make by pressing the dough with flour-dusted fingers. You can embellish this basic recipe with a sprinkling of your favorite snipped fresh herbs, dried tomatoes, olives, or grated Parmesan before baking.

    • Sourdough Bread

      Sourdough starter is what gives this crispy, textured loaf its tang. Plan ahead since the starter takes five to 10 days to develop. When the vigorous bubbling stops and the starter takes on a fermented aroma, you'll know its ready to use or to store in the refrigerator.

    • Rustic Italian Bread

      Let your bread machine do the work through the first rise, then shape the dough into a boule (ball). This way, it will bake into a golden round with a crisp crust. To serve, dip pieces of this rosemary- and garlic-flavor bread into olive oil or spread with softened butter.

    • Dill Bread

      Casseroles are the ultimate comfort food, and this popular bread -- baked in a casserole dish -- is the perfect companion. The thin crust becomes a deep golden color while the interior remains soft and fluffy.
