Yes, as long as you aren't making a cake.

Bread flour has a higher protein content, so whatever you make won't have as tender a crumb as if you were using AP flour. If you have some cake flour, you might try combining a bit of it with the bread flour, to more closely approximate the AP flour.

I agree with gt9, but to the nix on cake I would add pie dough, cookies, muffins, scones . . . it might be easier to make a trip to the store. Alternatively, make bread!

Bread flour is really only suitable for bread, specifically chewy, crusty "artisan" type breads. I really wouldn't use it for anything else. It's higher protein, and will give you more gluten development, so your final product is going to be more chewy, tougher and less tender. Not a desireable quality in anything other than a hearty bread.
