poppy seed bread

One of my family’s favorite bread that I bake is Poppy Seed.  I’ve become a little more creative and have ventured out of the comfort zone of the typical loaf pan when making breads.  I still use the typical bread loaf pan and adore them, but you can often find me in the kitchen section of many different stores digging through the shelves to see what I might find in the area of different.
