Challah Bread

This is a delicious bread to make, and definitely a showstopper on your table. My version is a six strand braid but a real easy one to do, I swear, all you have to do is braid consistently and take it nice and slow. You can not go wrong. As for the taste of this […]

Whichever, I can guarantee that you will be pleasantly surprised by the taste of these little boats filled with goodness. My version, once again, […]
