I was browsing the recipes on my favorite cooking blog http://smittenkitchen.com/ and found a recipe for Challah. I've never had it or made it but it sounded yummy and I wanted to learn how to do a 6-strand braid. I over-cooked it a smidge but it still tasted really good and made wonderful french toast. I made a round braided loaf and a long braided loaf but I gave that one away before I took a picture. Heres the recipe I used: http://smittenkitchen.com/2008/09/best-challah-egg-bread/ Oh yeah, the smell while it's baking is absolutely AMAZING.


Yay finally done moving!

Mmmmmm challah.  Your bread looks delish.

I bake challah on rare occasion... there is nothing quite like the smell of the dough rising. Smiley

Back when I was in college, I sometimes attended Hillel's Friday night dinners.  My friends and I would put a loaf of challah in the middle of the table and each take hold of the loaf.  We'd say the blessing over the bread and pull.  Usually one of us would end up with a huge chunk while everyone else got a little piece.  Then we'd redistribute the bread more evenly.  It's a lot more fun to tear it apart rather than slicing it up.
