Most people are afraid to make bread, but it's actually really easy. Although you do need to plan ahead for rising time, the actual hands on prep takes no more than 15 minutes and can make very little mess. I make bread at least 3 times a week. A good baguette (French bread) is hard to find. There is no comparison to store bought, even bakery bought, bread.
This recipe is very forgiving. They say baking is an exact science, well, not this bread.

Mostly I take it for granted that I know how to cook, but it wasn't always that way. I started cooking when I was around 18 years old. I have always been a picky eater, but I discovered that I am picky towards good food. In the majority of cases, I do not like the processed crap. When I am able, I cook from whole ingredients.
I learned all the tricks that I know from reading recipes, watching cooking shows, and tons of trial and error. Ask my husband, I am a great cook, but I have made some stinkers. From this, I have learned the ways to make simple and delicious meals.
As they come to mind, I will share with you what I have learned. I hope these lessons will make it easier for you to look like a fabulous cook without going to much trouble.
