Challah I
First time making Challah. Oh my GOODNESS! This bread was FANTASTIC! Even though I halved the recipe, it made a HUGE loaf...and we managed to eat half of it this evening! Wonderful! Will absolutely make again! I can't wait! 5 Stars! My husband is quite fond of it, and I wanted to surprise him by making it for him. I found a video online to show how to braid a 6-strand Challah loaf. I also used the advice of one of the other reviewers, and halved the recipe, but used 1/2 cup of honey, 1 egg, and 3 egg yolks in the dough.

Simply White Bread II
Excellent! Made this today for the first time, having already tried 2 other white bread recipes in the past couple of weeks. This was deliciously light, soft, and wonderful.

Golden Crescent Rolls
Fabulous!! Awesome!! I used this recipe to make homemade rolls for the first time...turned out perfectly!! The only modification I made is I used softened butter in place of the shortening. I also used other reviewers' advice and doubled the rising times (for before rolling & after). I also did as some others as well and divided the dough in half and did crescent rolls for dinner, and made cinnamon rolls with the other half of dough. I rolled them out & prepared them at the same time as I did the crescent rolls, and let them continue to rise while the crescents baked. Since I didn't have any cream cheese with which to make a frosting, I whipped together a quick glaze oh 1 cup powdered sugar, 3 Tbsp milk, and 1 tsp vanilla. Drizzled it all over the cinnamon rolls after the finished baking and they look divine! Now my husband and I can't wait to try them for breakfast tomorrow morning!
