help: baguettes

I tried. I thought for some reason I could do it. f.a.i.l.

When they came out of the oven I thought I had succeeded. The crust was sounded crunchy and wonderful. But after they cooled they turned out to be nothing more then tasteless, white, baguette-shaped, bread-like tubes.

Have any of you ever successfully made baguettes? Is it even possible in a home kitchen? I am hunted by the memory of a real French Baguette sold on every corner in Paris.

I used this recipe.

recipe: brie and apple baguettes

My lovely readers!

I am back stateside! I am so excited to show you what I have learned about food durning my trip, and also share my picture with you!

To kick off the string of French food, that I assure you is coming, is a
baguette sandwich. My sister and I had this on a small town right outside Omaha beach. We decided to recreate it tonight for dinner. And I must say, we nailed it. We were only missing the crash of the French seaside.



Also, we added chicken to one of the sandwiches, you can see it on top. You can add meat, or leave it just cheese and apple!

1 large baguette,cut in half, or 2 small
1 granny smith apple, thinly sliced
1/2 large wedge brie, sliced
A handful baby spinach
Butter, softened
Course ground mustard

Slice the baguettes down the middle. Spread one side of the opened baguette with mustard, and the other with butter.
Arrange a thin layer of spinach inside each baguette. Add a layer of apples on top of the spinach, followed by the brie, finish with another layer of apple slices.

I am super stoked to show you my pictures from my trip! It was an amazing trip! Inspirational with the foods I ate and the sights I saw.
