Ritual Challah

Ritual Challah

I share this recipe with a nod to the Jewish Community Center (JCC) in Manhattan. I have adapted and used this recipe of theirs, which a friend of mine shared with me, since the first time I made challah so long ago. Specifically, she said that it was used in a Mommy and Me cooking

Pumpkin Challah Bread Pudding

Pumpkin Challah Bread Pudding

When it comes to nostalgic comfort foods, bread pudding is always a crowd pleaser. While you can make it year round, bread pudding is one of those traditional dishes that seems most at home once a chill in the air has begun to set in. So, how does one improve upon bread pudding for fall?

Challah

Challah

SAF Instant yeast can be purchased online. It is the same as rapid rise yeast, but different from active dry yeast that’s sold in supermarkets. Active dry yeast is an unreliable substitute for this recipe. If you do not have a stand mixer, scale the recipe down to two-thirds of the weight and make three loaves

Apple and Honey Challah

Emily’s Challah (#ChashtagChallah)

Emily’s Challah (#ChashtagChallah)

About a year ago, I came up with a goal for myself: to participate in a Shabbat dinner every week, just like I did growing up, but to spend them all with friends. I now have regular invites for dinner, but they all come with a catch: I have to bring the homemade challah. My

My Favorite Gluten-Free Challah

My Favorite Gluten-Free Challah

I have been experimenting with gluten-free challah recipes since my son developed an allergy several years ago. This challah recipe will come out more like a batter than a dough, so be prepared with a challah mold or a cupcake tray if you would like to make smaller portions. Also, I find that making my
