Yesterday I was making Challah and nearly burned out my Kitchenaid mixer, so I had to spend half the day researching the latest models so I can find something that's up to the task of bread-making. Anyway, after I braided two loaves, I thought about the boys across the street (ages 10 and 8, I think) who, bless their hearts, like my bread. So I called their mother and asked if they wanted to come over after school and braid their own loaves.
Long story short, they did. They braided their own loaves, took them home to let them rise and bake, and then sent me pictures. :-)

Enjoy! And I hope you can take some time out to bake something today. It's therapeutic!
P.S. And yes, I'm sure my next book will feature a bakery!
