Long ago, I used to bake bread on a fairly regular basis. Then I had children and got a job. I have a long, semi-joking list of all the things I have not done since my second child was born, one of which is bake bread.
But this week that second child, my elder daughter, said she wanted to bake bread. So I hunted around until I found a pretty simple recipe for French bread, and today we did it. It felt really good to have my hands in dough again.
