One of my friends made challah this week and I was totally inspired. Not only is it tender, moist, and great for french toast, it also justifies saying "HOLLA" all day long. Which I am for. I added same orange marmalade and cardamom just for fun.
Braids are beautiful
I always thought that the lovely golden crust of egg wash is from the yolk,
but it is really from the proteins in the white.
In other news, we got "Jerusalem: A Cookbook" for a late wedding gift, and I am super excited to cook my way through it. It also has beautiful photos. The first thing we made was a meaty, grainy casserole with tahini lemon sauce. Mmmm.
