Directions:
Combine 1 package of yeast with 1/2 cup warm tap water. Let it stand until it bubbles and rise, about 15 minutes. Put flour into lg. bowl and add the yeast when it's ready. Add one cup of room temperature water and knead with your hands. Add rest of water slowly until dough forms a pliable ball that sticks together. You may need more or less water then 4 cups. When the dough ball makes a nice round ball, cover with a kitchen towel and let it stand overnight. In the morning break up the ball into loaves or baguettes or rolls, as you wish, add herbs to each roll as desired. Turn out onto cookie sheet or baking pan. Spray with olive oil & sprinkle with salt. Bake at 375 degrees until it's a little brown, about 15 min.
