Really pretty, zainaba22!  I esp. like the random patterns in the braided loaves.  What are the two kinds of dough that you used to make them?

zainaba, you are such a talented baker! It's always a treat to see what you come up with, it's always so pretty and skillfully done. The two-toned bread looks very dramatic and appealing.
