French bread was the first bread that I ever made!
When I was a newlywed (34 years ago), my aunt gave me a cookbook that her local women's club had published. I was not a proficient cook in those days (to say the least!), but I perused the recipes in this book, knowing that "real" women had made them. For some reason, one day I decided to make French bread.
Amazingly enough, the bread turned out beautiful and delicious! Beginner's luck maybe, but I even impressed a few people by giving loaves of French bread as Christmas gifts.
Although it takes a little time, the process is relatively simple...and maybe you'll impress your friends and family with your baking prowess.
