French Bread
This is a barely passable bread recipe. I made it twice. The first time it was very yeasty, quite dense, and had no flavor. The second time I included recommendations from the other reviews. I doubled the salt (2nd half after mixing first two cups of flour) and proofed the yeast in the water with 4 teaspoons of sugar. With these changes, the bread was less dense and less yeasty, but still far from true french bread. Also don't egg wash before cooking. I applied the 1st after 5 minutes of baking and gott the nice chewy shiny coat that is typical of real french bread. If you don't proof the yeast rasie the water temperature to 120-130F.

Sweet Potato Bisque
I expected more flavor from this recipe. The taste of the sweet potatoes was minmal even though they were roasted to carmelize the sugars and enhance the flavor. The ratio of broth to water should be bit higher. I added a little brown sugar and hot paprika later which raised the recipe from 3 to 4 stars.
