Even though these feel fancy and special, they are very quick to make and pop into the oven at a moment’s notice. They are great alongside just about anything: soup, salad, bubbly, or on their own.

Sometimes, you don’t want the hard-crusted, rip-and-tug Euro-styled country loaf that’s become the city’s default daily bread. Sometimes, you and your jam want a bread that holds up to slicing and toasting, a bread without gaping jelly-dripping holes, ready for butter and honey or peanut butter and banana sandwiches, in short, a bread you can only have if you make it yourself.
One bread I love to make at home is focaccia. In addition to thinking it’s one of the easier breads to bake, I also love that it can accommodate a variety of toppings. Although it is most often baked with sea salt and rosemary, you can easily add thyme or sage instead, not to mention goat cheese, caramelized onions, olives, garlic, nuts, anchovies, and fresh tomatoes.
