    2      pkg           active dry yeast
    2      tbsp          sugar
    2      tsp           salt
    1      c             water
    1      c             plain yogurt

 In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 1/2 cups flour, yeast, sugar and
 salt.  In a small saucepan, heat water and yogurt to 120-130°.  add to
 flour mixture; mix well.  Add oil, herbs and enough of the remaining
 flour to form a stiff dough.  Turn onto a floured surface; knead until
 smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes.  Place in a greased bowl, turning
 once to grease top.  Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled,
 about 1 hour.  Punch dough down; shape into two loaves.  Place in two
 greased 8x4x2 inch loaf pans.  Cover and let rise until doubled, about
 1hour.  Bake at 375° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove
 from pans to cool on wire racks.
