    It would totally be worth the yellowest teeth in the world to eat this gorgeous loaf! ;-)

    Mmmmmm….this looks fantastic.

    Also, having never had my teeth professionally whitened, I had not heard of this “white diet” (though it makes sense). I get the feeling that I would suck at it.

    You are so brave to experiment with brioche. We’ve made it once with great success, but tampering with such a delicate dough terrifies me. But you’ve done it, and you’ve owned it! Swirly and sophisticated. I love this so much. Is that a Pullman loaf pan that you used? I love the dimensions of your monster loaf.

    I don’t think I could abstain from food ever. I’ve always wanted to get my teeth whitened, but know that I have to eat white things for a while afterwards makes me more hesitant. And I’d be afraid to drink coffee ever again! But I’d have to, because…you have to drink coffee to survive. Right?

    Hearing about your painful teeth whitening makes MY teeth hurt! There’s nothing I detest more than the dentist’s chair, whether it be for beauty or just a cleaning. But to reward oneself with this bread… totally worth it :)

    I used to be more careful about what I was eating and whether it was too fattening, caloric, or unhealthy. At that time I always had cravings for unhealthy foods and ended up binging on them when I got the chance or when I simply gave up and let loose. Now I don’t pay attention to what foods I should stay away from, and I rarely have cravings for fried foods, desserts, unhealthy comfort foods, etc. It’s funny the way the mind/stomach works like that! I feel better than ever and I’m not even trying so hard. It just comes naturally.

    Oh my – I would have been scared to make this after coming off a ‘white diet’ because I would have totally ate the entire loaf if I was forced to survive on white bread for many days. Also, love the texture of the seeds on top of this delicious loaf – irresistible!

    I am all over this bread. The swirl in the middle is perfect!!

    This is one gorgeous-looking loaf. (The swirl, from what I can see of it, looks perfectly respectable to me.)

    I’m not sure that I’d be able to go through with this whole whitening business, given what you’ve described. (I would definitely have a problem with caffeine too.) I think I’d just end up eating a lot of vanilla ice cream, though I guess it couldn’t even be particularly good vanilla ice cream, since it couldn’t have any actual seeds in it! Ugh, well, I’m glad that you’re back to eating normally!

    ahahaha, I seriously don’t think I would have survived the white diet! Maybe if I just ate a lot of marshmallows I’d pull through..?
    Just looking at this bread is making me incredibly hungry right now. The pumpkin-y colored dough makes it so appealing! AND I love how the tin you baked it in shaped the loaf like that – gorgeous.
    (ps I don’t think I’ve said yet, but congratulations on your wedding! :) )
