Savory Bread

Despite America's obsession with sweet treats, baking isn't all about sugar. Savory breads like rosemary focaccia or buttery garlic knots deserve a second look, too.

You can even find ideas for savory cupcakes, such as a curried buttermilk cake filled with peas, carrots and potatoes, or a recipe that incorporates goat cheese-horseradish "frosting."
