Here is the recipe for the bread:

Heavenly Herb Bread Braid

2 1/2 cups warm water
2 Tbl. dry yeast
2 Tbl. sugar
2 Tbl. olive oil
2 Tbl. salt
6-7 cups bread flour
1 cup chopped fresh herbs

Mix water, sugar, and yeast in a large mixing bowl. Add 4 cups of flour. Mix until well combined. Add olive oil and salt. Continue mixing/kneading while adding enough of the remaining flour to form nice dough. Let rise 45 minutes.
Divide dough into three parts and roll each part into long "snakes" on a lightly floured surface. Sprinkle chopped herbs on surface. Roll each snake in chopped herbs, braid into a loaf. Allow to rise about 20 minutes, then bake on greased baking pan in 400 degree oven until golden brown.

**This recipe is actually really easy- I was surprised! If I can do it, anybody can do it!!!
