    Swiss Braided (Zopf) Bread:
3 ½ cups flour
1 ½ cup milk
1 egg
1 tbsp active dry yeast
1 tsp salt
1 ½ tbsp sugar
4 tbsp butter, melted)
1. Warm the milk. In a bowl, combine the egg, milk, yeast, and butter. Stir. Let the mixture sit for 15 minutes, ensuring that the yeast completely dissolves.
2. In a separate large bowl, mix the flour, salt, and sugar. Make a well.
3. Add the wet ingredients to the well. Mix with a wooden spoon until it forms a firm dough.
4. Move the dough onto a floured surface. Knead for approximately 10 minutes.
5. Brush a new large bowl with butter. Place the dough in the bowl. Cover with a dishcloth and put into the oven for 1.5 hours. It will double in size.
6. Remove from oven. Cut the dough in half and place on a floured surface. Taking one half, divide again into three equal pieces. Turn each piece into a long rope, 12” in length.
7. Lay all three ropes side by side. Pinch the end of three pieces together. Now braid. When you get to the end of the first loaf, fold the bottom under. Repeat with the second loaf.
8. Grease a baking sheet with butter. Place both loaves onto the sheet. Butter the loaves, then cover with a dishcloth and place in the oven for 1 hour. They will more than double in size.
9. Remove the loaves, and heat the oven to 400°F. Place them back in and bake for approximately 20 minutes.
10. Once the loaves are golden brown, remove them from the oven. Serve with a preserve or with any meal. "Kids are super easy. It’s being an adult that’s hard." @girlshbo @lenadunham

    Happy Anniversary my Emma and Geo! Every living thing flourishes with a partner…I am glad you have each other. And to my son in law I say to you observe the mares and the Jenny donkeys out here. They are in charge of their herd. They find the best resting spots and lie down first. The choicest grass and they eat first. The best shelter and they enter first. Treat her well and you will have a life partner. Take care of each other.
