My Olive Cheese Bread

A while I ago I saw the Pioneer Woman’s recipe for Olive Cheese Bread pass through my Facebook newsfeed and thought it would be a worthwhile attempt. So this afternoon, I got myself and the ingredients together, sort of.  I didn’t have French bread, but I had a baguette. (That’s a type of French bread, so it counts, right?).  I…
