Hubby bought me this handy dandy french bread loaf pan and I love it. The truth of the matter is that I didn't even know such a thing existed until The Queen began talking about her pan. Last week I baked two regular loaves but they came out tasting too salty. I didn't have kosher salt so I just used table salt and I think that was a mistake. I used to be afraid of making my own bread, I think the idea of dealing with the yeast and what if it didn't rise right...it sounded to me like a lot of hassle for something that may or may not work. I have found, though, that I love it and it really isn't as hard as I thought it would be. It makes the house smell so good! Anyway, if you are looking for an easy french bread recipe, go here and thank The Queen of Brussels Sprouts. Tell her I sent you!
Next time...I'll follow the advice of one of my facebook friends and make homemade butter to go with it. Wouldn't that be delish?! I don't think I'm gonna report in for Fat Tuesday tomorrow, as it will ultimately be a FAIL!
