REVIEW:
I chose to try and make Hefezopf.
It's a German sweet bread, known as The Braided Bread. It flipped my switch so I got to it.
It takes lots of time to make, but really they say good things take time. 
This was the second loaf I made. The first I gave to my uncle to enjoy. This one I kept for my family to eat. This was as it was waiting to go in the oven. 
It smelled so good in my house, and then to taste the bread and its sweetness from the milk. It is one of those breads that you can do a lot with.
My recipe suggestion is to break some up in a bowl for breakfast. Pour warm milk over it, and add raisins as well as sprinkle some cinnamon on it. It is a breakfast fit for champions! So delicious and filling on these chilly winter mornings.
I can't wait to try some more of these breads out. But this Hefezopf is going to be a family favorite from here on out!

Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners. You Want to Be a Credible Source of InformationWhen you put content out on the web, you want it to be either entertaining or useful – ideally both. You may work hard on writing good posts or hiring people who can create useful and interesting stuff…
