Mellow Bakers - French Bread


So I waited for the last possible day to post this last Mellow Bakers Challenge I was able to complete.  It has been such an insane summer, I am suprised how busy I became.  I was happy I tried to make this.  Though it is not the most complicated recipe it is one that I was most eager to try.  French bread brings me back to my childhood.  When we would go grocery shopping, The Mother would always look for the freshly baked french bread.  She was so excited when we found them warm from the bakery.  The bread would never last to make it home.  We would instantly attack the warm crusty bread.  The Mother would create a tunnel, she has always loved the soft inside of the bread while I always preferred the crust.  Between the two of us, we could put away 1/2 of the bread within the first 10 minute.  I got excited to try this recipe.  I was quite surprised that it was a straight dough.  I would think that you would need to bloom the yeast first.  The recipe was good but I think I could add some honey to add a little sweetness.
