Recipes from Friends – Homemade French Bread


French Bread Recipe - Recipe from Friends #Recipes #Foodie #Bread #Baking #Foodblog

I have been wanting to make homemade bread lately. We eat a lot of bread in our house, so I want to be able to try making it at home for us to enjoy fresh out of the oven.

This Homemade French Bread recipe from Tales of a Ranting Ginger is a great start.

This is an easy to follow recipe with pictures. I love it when recipes are easy, especially when it is a recipe that has me leaving my comfort zone in the kitchen.

Make this recipe to enjoy bread with your pasta dish or just for any meal really.
