February's Daring Bakers challenge

Finally I get to post the results of February's challenge.. yay!!!! I've just been so busy with school that I didn't have time to do it at the appropiate time, and that made me feel really sad, however I am a DARING baker so I made time this weekend to do my challenge and I was really happy.
When I first learned how to make bread my objective was to one day be able to make baguettes without a problem, well this is the beginning of that... so I was really excited when they announced that the challenge for February was FRENCH BREAD!!!! Thanks Mary and Sara

As always, I assembled all the ingredients



And then the adventure began, it was challenging this time... I had to go over the instructions a couple of times, and waiting for the bread to rise was torturous (but not as torturous as waiting for the bread to cool so I could take a bite) because I just wanted to taste the end result and I really wanted to try my hand at slashing the dough. It was challenging to make this bread, but then again that is WHY I am a daring baker, however I enjoyed every single bit of it... and...
THIS IS THE END RESULT!!!



Will I try this recipe again? DEFINITELY... I'll keep trying it until I perfect it for sure.... I love the taste of French bread, if I had it my way I would eat it everyday, so I'll keep trying this recipe and eating some awesome bread!!!
THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU DARING BAKERS OUT THERE, who can make amazing bread out of FOUR ingredients!!! YOU ARE MY HEROES!!!
