French Bread For February

This is my first Daring Bakers challenge and it couldn't have been a better one for me. French bread Yum!!!

We love fresh bread with everything. But with these loaves we are going to have it with my 20 minute weeknight sauce and linquine. The house is filled with the smell of yeasty warm bread and spicy sweet tomatoe sauce. This must be heaven!

The recipe for the bread is from Julia Childs and the challenge came from the breadchick. Check out the recipe on her site. Just click here . They included alot of notes, which seemed kinda daunting at first, but I really found them to be helpful.

And if you follow their suggestion of reading the recipe with Julia Childs voice in your head it made it really fun!

Course, my husband wasn't sure how I was going to add Julia's voice in with the 19 others that are roaming around in my head. Ha!! he thinks he is so funny.

My picture taking skills seem to be getting better, maybe next time more than one or two will come out post worthy.

You hear voices, and one of them is Julia? Funny. Nice job on your challenge, and I bet the bread was perfect with linguine!

Julia's voice is very distinctive. Some might even call it shrill. I'd imagine it comes through okay :) Congratulations on your first DB success!
