Need advice and suggestions on baking bread

Jerseygirl111 | Feb 26, 2014 08:13 PM

I need your help! I am a cookie baker but really really really want to bake bread. I have made the No knead recipe twice and loaf from a package but otherwise am inexperienced working with yeast and kneading.

Here's what I want and need: a not too complicated recipe for an Italian loaf. Sort of a French baguette but shorter and fatter. I do not have a convection oven or a baking stone. Just regular old gas oven. I am looking for bread with a crispy crust. Any hope?
