Last week, I wanted to make some bread to go along with a new pasta dish we were having. I bake alot, but usually my baking involves desserts, not bread. However, I wanted to give it a try and see if I could find a new recipe and that's when I found the French Bread with a KitchenAid Mixer recipe.
This amazing bread would also go well with so many recipes - my favorite being this potato soup with cream cheese.

As soon as I saw that I could make bread with my Kitchenaid Mixer - I knew I had to go for it.
I love my Kitchenaid Mixer... love, love, love it! The mixer didn't play a huge role in this recipe, but I got to use that nifty dough hook that I don't use otherwise, so it was fun!
Note: for those of you who skim recipes (like me)...be sure to read all the way through before starting. I somehow missed the "let rise for another hour" and we ended up having bread after supper because it wasn't done in time to eat with supper! I should have listened to a friend who told me so! Oh well...it was delicious when we finally got to eat it!
P.S. Because I'm a dork and apparently don't know the difference between long and short...I rolled form the short ends of the rectangles and ended up with short fat loaves vs. long elegant ones.
I wondered why they didn't quite seem right...but by the time I figured it out, they were all rolled up and rising again! It still tasted good, but I recommend being smarter than me! Let me know if you try this and check out other recipes I've posted here!
