Place yeast, sugar, and warm water in large bowl or food processor and allow mixture to become bubbly.

Add more flour if necessary. Oil bowl, put dough in it and cover with a towel. Let dough rise in a warm place for one hour until doubled.

Melt margarine or butter. Brush over the top of the loaves. Sprinkle remaining 1 Tbs of rosemary over the loaves and press lightly into the surface. Let loaves rise again until doubled, about 45 minutes.

Personal Notes:
This makes 2 loaves. Since there is only the two of us, I always put one loaf in the freezer then it's ready anytime when we want more of the bread. I just take it out an hour or so before dinner. About 5 minutes before dinner is ready, I pop it in a 350 degree F oven for 5 minutes or so to warm it a bit and WahLah! Bread!
