I was really dubious the whole time I was making this bread. The dough was really dense. Maybe that is how all bread dough is. I wouldn't know. So I let it rise, but it was still so heavy. Then came time to do these crazy braids. They really were crazy. The whole thing was looking so ugly, and I almost quit several times. Surprisingly, The bread came out of the oven looking and tasting great! I was shocked!!!
It did get slightly over cooked. I blame that on my husband. I had to go somewhere, and I was left with no choice but to leave the cooking part up to him. So considering the situation, it turned out just fine.
By the way, Challah bread is a jewish bread. It's pronounced Halla. The CH is silent.
Here is the link to the recipe: http://www.zollyzoo.com/inthekitchen/2012/02/08/bake-52-week-6-challah/. Here are my pictures.

Today I made bread! That feels good to say! Maybe I'll do it again someday...just maybe.
