Any disasters? Did you take any risks? Proudest moment? Lessons learned the hard way? Tell us about it.

Was thrilled to have a recipe with fresh herbs that we have started to plant in our garden. Have not cooked with herbs often so great to have another recipe. I tried to shape the bread like a wedge of cheese, if you use your imagination I hope you can make out the shape. I used rosemary, dill and basil. Was worried about the three together but I think it was great. The bread turned out crispy on the outside and tender inside. Reminded me of a pretzel.

How did you add a Wisconsin twist to your flavors or decoration?

I added a Wisconsin twist by trying to shape the dough into a cheese wedge.
