Need a bread recipe

So it's Saturday night, I'm a 21 year old guy and I'm home alone and bored. So what should I do? Making bread sounds good lol. So I'm new to bread making and other than pizza dough and this recipe

I've never done any breads before. I'd like to do something more crusty and artisan like but I don't feel like going to the grocery store for anything special. I have all purpose flower (pillsbury), a jar of yeast and other general kitchen necessities. So shoot me some recipes before I die of boredom :)

Omelettes. No matter what I do I always end up with a brown crispy skinned omelette. I love my eggs just barely done and I wish I could enjoy an omelette in this manner. I've tried everything to no avail lol. I even tried a Jamie Oliver trick of scrambling the eggs for the first 30 seconds when it hits the pan, but that only ended up in an omellette that stuck to the bottom of the pan -__-

Well it's settled, I'm going to have to look for a bottle of the Chateau Ste. Michelle Rieslings. Thank you for the rec as well as the information about the grapes.

I live in Thompson CT so I am only 15 minutes away from Sturbridge. I used to pass Yankee Spirits all the time when I used to work out there. I will have to stop in and talk to them. Thank you for the rec!

I will have to look into other green wines. Even if they are not a Portuguese green wine, are they similar in they have a very fruity taste? Also I will look into your other recommendations. Thank you for the reply :)

Hello all,
My name is Mike and I am a long time reader now making my first post :)
I am looking for recommendations for white wines. I am 21 and new to drinking wine. Over the years I have tried the wines my parents bought but never liked them (almost always Franzia brand boxed wine, either Chillable Red or Zinfandel). I always found these way to bitter, as well as the way I feel about any other red that I have tried (save for a bottle of Wal-Mart brand Sweet Red my brother bought once).
The one sure fire wine I know I enjoy is Portuguese Vinho Verde. Luckily for me this is easy for me to track down as I live about an hour away from Fall River, MA (aka little Sao Miguel) and I run out there about once a month to stock up on Chourico and other portuguese supplies.
I just want to expand my taste and I am looking for recommendations. Big bonus for brands I can find for under $10.
Thank you ahead of time,
Mike D
