Although I never had the chance to meet him, today I am going to pay tribute to Joe Zachary. Why? Because he made the most delicious bread and passed the recipe down to his family. His family includes Kathy, my great pal. Kathy tells me that the bread has always been named "Joe's Dilly Bread" but I have renamed it to "Kathy-Joe's Dilly Bread" to honor my friend as well.

¼ C warm water

By the way, I am eating a piece of the bread as I write this. Hmmm good!
Kathy-Joe's Dilly Bread
1 pkg yeast
I made this bread in the breadmaking machine and it was perfect. I used the setting "Regular Light".
Kathy, please correct me if any of the recipe is incorrect. I copied it from scribbles when you gave me the recipe over the phone.
Enjoy the bread, everyone!
Meanwhile .... keep it simple and make it real.
