From Scratch Day 2- French Bread

French bread is not easy to make!!! Lets just say it turned out less than perfect. :( 
It actually doesn't taste bad. The taste is good. But it's not soft. 

My intention was to make French bread from scratch, then make homemade bruschetta with it.  

I really should have read the recipe better because it took FOREVER to make! "Let rise 2 hours." "Beat down, let sit 10 mins" "roll out let rise 45 mins" my soul! 

Somewhere along the line something happened...or the recipe was wacky (sparing you from it) and the bread was tight, semi hard and dense.  Not fluffy and soft :( boo. I'm gonna try it again I think with a different recipe. The bread is eatable, has good flavor, but it's not soft, fluffy fresh baked bread that I hoped for. 

Day two = FAIL.

Well, it doesn't LOOK ugly, at least. The best way to learn is by trying and failing. Just ask Thomas Edison! :)

I have tried making homemade bread over the years but it never turned out. Never rose properly therefore didn't cook through. Until today! I thought I would try this recipe since it looked so simple. It's actually a recipe for hamburger buns or you could serve them as rolls. No rising and they bake in about 12 min. Turned out great!! I got it off pinterest but you can go to www.tasteofhome.com and search for 40 minute hamburger buns. Also, what if we don't have facebook for the drawing?
