Oven Lovin' Saturday

This week I made bread... Kind of a baguette type bread, only 1 rising required... I had my doubts about it, but it turned out pretty good... Especially hot from the oven with butter!

1 Rise Baguettes

2 cups warm water
1 package yeast (I used rapid rise for this one)
1 T sugar
1 and 1/2 t salt
As much flour as you need to make a moist yet not sticky dough (I used just over 5 cups)

Mix the water, sugar, and yeast and allow to foam...
Mix in the flour and salt and knead until the dough becomes elastic. Than cut into 4 equal pieces and roll them into logs. Twist 2 of the logs together to form a loaf, place on pan, and allow to rise about 30 minutes.
(these haven't risen... I seem to have left that picture out)
Place in 425 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown
  What did you use your oven for this week?
