[donotprint] Last week, a cold front moved in and finally gave us a real taste of January weather in Kansas. So much so, I felt the need to make some cozy, homemade soups to try and keep us warm. Of course, we couldn’t just have soup for dinner. We needed something warm to go along with it, so I decided to make some homemade bread.
I made my homemade roll recipe, using a loaf pan versus separating the bread into rolls, but what I really wanted to try, was homemade French bread. I had never made it before and since I’ve been on a bread-making kick, I thought I’d give it go. That’s the great thing about this blog. It’s helping me get out of my comfort zone and try new things. 🙂 I love that!
So, I cheated a bit and used my bread machine to make the dough. It’s just so easy to throw all the ingredients in and let it do its thing. When the dough setting was finished, I did take it out and roll it into two loaves of French bread. So I did do a little work. We paired it with our French onion soup and it was the perfect match. I’ll be sharing that recipe later in the week.[/donotprint]
