Can I use whole wheat flour instead of white flour to make rosemary olive oil bread?

Yes, but whole wheat flour yields a denser loaf, so you may prefer using 3⁄4 of the amount of white flour in the rosemary olive oil bread recipe. You will find the best amount that works perfectly by experience.

What is the difference between oregano and thyme?

Oregano and thyme are both aromatic herbs, but they come from different plants and have different aromas and flavors. They both are very tasteful and have many health benefits, so they are widely used in cooking.

As for aroma and flavor, thyme has a more delicate and subtle flavor than oregano, with a little sweet, peppery, somewhat minty, and lemony taste. On the other hand, oregano has a stronger and more distinct taste. It is tangy, slightly bitter, and sweet.

Both herbs are commonly used in Mediterranean cuisine. Oregano is also popular in Mexican cuisine and thyme is in Middle Eastern cuisine. They are both used in sauces, meats, soups, stews, and vegetables.

In terms of appearance, oregano leaves are broader and more oval-shaped than thyme leaves, which are small and narrow. Oregano also has a darker green color than thyme.
