Yeast scares me. It intimidates me with its bubbling and kneading and rising. So far, I have only tackled a couple yeast recipes – pizza crust and an easy focaccia. Recently, I wanted something to add to a pasta dinner and decided to be brave and try a French bread recipe that my mom made a lot, from the More-with-Less cookbook.
I’m not writing this as a bread tutorial, just to share some pictures of Hannah and I tackling the project together. She was a very willing helper and wanted to carry around her piece of dough for the whole day.
Sorry I didn’t get any of the finished product, but it was good! The recipe makes a lot, so I got several meals out of it. We ate it in nice warm slices, then I made garlic toast, then I made french toast, then I made French bread pizza. Quite a bit of work and time (in my opinion), but lots of payoff!
