Easter Challah Bread
The writers have put together 100 recipes you can use the dough for, which is amazing. Every recipe I've tried in the last two months have been wonderful, but my husband's absolute favorite is the challah bread. I made this for our Easter dinner in place of the egg bread I traditionally make (challah and egg bread are actually similiar recipes - if you knew that, GREAT, good for you. If you didn't, well now you do). It's also very good as french toast the next morning. Another great bread is the brioche, also similiar to challah but richer in flavor. And the brioche dough makes wonderful sticky pecan cinnamon rolls - also in the cookbook. I've included pictures below of a couple of the recipes I've made. For any of these recipes you can visit Artisan Bread in Five. They also have a wonderful Facebook page.

Brioche Dough - half has been sprinkled with raw sugar for french toast the next morning
Pretzels - I halved the recipe to make 4 large pretzels, half with cinnamon sugar and half with coarse sea salt
