French Bread

French Bread

I have been thinking about trying French bread for a while. 
Finally the other night when we were going to have
Manicotti. That I wanted garlic bread. 
So I did a search on and
found this recipe. 

If you are no familiar with 
There is a print button that is under the picture to 
the right hand side. 

I tried spreading it out the way it is in the recipe 
and then I just rolled one into a log. 
For myself, I liked the way I did it. 

My girls and I just loved it. It was easy to make. 
Yes, it took time.  

If you make it. Let me know what you thought. 
You can post your comment here or send it to

Happy Cooking!
