I joined an online baking group called the Daring Bakers. They give you one challenge per month, and this month was Julia Child's french bread - click here for the link to the step by step instructions. It took forever to make, but it turned out authentic, smelled amazing, and was fun to try. Since I spent literally all day in the kitchen, I decided to make some homemade gnocchi (Italian pasta-like potato dumplings), a roasted chicken and creamy tomato zucchini sauce. I posted a pic of the finished bread, as well as of my dinner, since it was quite delicious. I'll post my gnocchi and sauce recipes next.
