I went through a bread baking phase about 20 years ago.  Regardless of my efforts the loaves turned out quite dense and rather bland.  All of them, except Challah, which always came out soft, moist and flavorful.  And the braid was always beautiful.  So for awhile, I went through a phase of making Challah.

This past Thanksgiving weekend brought back memories of green bean casseroles and buttery mashed potatoes and delicious pumpkin pies.  I have let most of those recipes trail off in the past years, favoring them for newer, fresher dishes and desserts.  But like, Challah, maybe some of those are worth bringing back.

And here's Rhiannon.

  1. Yes, this one is definitely worth bringing back. Awesome helper :-)

  2. Challah is definitely a good thing. And you've got a helper! So cute. It is always a good thing to share these traditions with kids.

  3. Love the photos of Rhiannon! This was my first time making challah, and will be making it again. Such a lovely bread

  4. Nice braiding job! Haven't made this yet, looking forward to trying it.
