22:365 More eggs and Easter bread

Anna: As requested, here are the eggs. Of the pisanki, I did half (the brightly coloured, tacky ones), while our elder daughter did the other half (hers are the simple, elegant designs). I'm not very good at doing wax resist dying. :-/ Ah, well.

The eggs in the centre are kraszanki - eggs cooked with onion skins for 45 minutes. I didn't have very many onion skins this year, so they're a lot paler than I usually make them.







Philippe: I love baking.. I really do. I've gotten the kids involved and now my eldest bakes bread as well.. Every once in a while though, Anna will get in the kitchen and show us who the *real* baker is in the family.

I think all the eggs are quite beautiful and I agree that the bread is spectacular.

Is that challah? That is my favorite bread!!! If it isn't it still looks great. The eggs are beautiful too.

I think it would be considered challah - I modified our basic bread recipe to include eggs and honey, then used an egg wash to top it off. My recipe for challah includes raisins, but that's pretty much the only difference. Philippe is the only one who likes raisins in this household, so I don't normally use them in baking.

How beautiful, all the way around. Y'all are a talented bunch. Thanks for the first-hand info about Dye Hard. As for my hair, I've been able to have some blonde and red-blonde streaks/highlights put into my brownish-gray hair and feel really good about how that turned out, as well as a spiral perm. My stylist agrees with my assessment--I now have movie star hair (that needs a trim soon).

The eggs look tremendous. Now I'm wishing I'd done some baking, that bread looks delicious.
