Italian Bread Made EASY!!!

On my last post, I explained how to make homemade goat cheese.  Well, alot of time has passed since then (sorry about that), and I've progressed to making mozzarella and ricotta, too.  However, with all that cheese-making, I was getting a ton of whey (the liquid that's left behind).  Curious me...I FINALLY went looking to see what could be done with it, and ran across a recipe that is SOOO easy, it's a wonder everyone doesn't already have it.

Apparently, Italian women have known about this for a LONG time (and considering that both mozzarella and ricotta cheeses come from there, that shouldn't surprise me).  They make bread...simple, old-fashioned Italian bread...from the whey!!  The flavor it gives to the bread is AMAZING!!!  Now, I know that not all of you have whey around, but that's ok.  I have piddled with this recipe for the last 3 weeks, and have come up with a way to get the same taste without it!!
