I have a feeling I am eventually going to need to create a directory for all these recipes I'm posting. Things are bound to get lost!
Tonight we're having pasta carbonara w/ french bread and salad. (I'll post the pasta recipe in the morning.) As a baker, I really do try to make my own breads. We buy loaf bread for sandwiches because we go through too much and with a new baby? Forgetaboutit.
Today I made a nice french loaf for our dinner. Homemade is so much better than store-bought because it's not full of unnecessary additives. If you have 3 hours, I highly encourage you to try out this easy recipe!
FRENCH BREAD (makes 1 loaf)
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp yeast
Dissolve the sugar and yeast in a mixing bowl for 10 minutes and yeast is nice and bubbly.
NOTE: Never put the salt in direct contact with your yeast. Unlike sugar, salt will KILL your yeast. Not a good thing folks. :)
