When I was younger some friends and I used to go over to a ladies house from church and she would teach us how to bake. One of the things we made was bread which was always fun punching down the dough and kneading it. If we got to use our hands and get dirty we were in. I really have not made much yeast bread in my life to be honest it kinda scared me. I always thought yeast was so touchy and didn't want to ruin the bread or waste all those ingredients. Recently, I had a day off work and decided I was going to bake some bread so I just googled French Bread and found a recipe I thought sounded easy and went with it courtesy of All Recipes.
Yields 2 loaves
