French Bread "Yum"!!!

I love to bake, but don't do much of it anymore.  I just look at bread or sweets and I pack on the pounds. Back in the good old days, I use to bake everyday!  I miss it.  I saw a recipe for French Bread and it just looked so good, I just had to try it.    It really turned out great!  I made two loaves and they were gone in a couple of hours.  Of course, I had my two granddaughters here and they helped.  My oldest, Allura, loves bread and I think she was the biggest contributor.    I also put a pork tenderloin in the crockpot with a little BBQ sauce and then shredded the meat, cut up a bowl of fresh fruit and that was our supper.  Here is a picture of how they turned out. 

I used the recipe from this link: 
If you try this recipe, my bread rose much faster that what they called for.  Maybe my kitchen was warmer.  So keep your eye on it.  Also, it browned in the oven faster than the recipe called for, so I just reached in during the baking when I saw that the tops of the loaves were nice and brown and turned the loaves over and left them brown on the bottom too!  They were yummy!!!!!
Let me know if you try this and how yours turned out!  Make sure you soften some real butter to spread on your french bread!!
