and a little bit of

take some butter
and a knife

then taste
and taste again

this treasured
staff of life

*I realized on Saturday that I had not planned an adventure for last week. When I need a quick adventure, I often head for the kitchen where I can transport myself to another culture quickly. I decided to make Challah Bread to go with our Easter dinner. It was my first experience making it, and I found it to be easy and fun. It had been quite a long time since I had made yeast bread so when it came out so beautifully I was thrilled. My son and husband were home when I took it out of the oven. Of course, we had to sample it immediately. (Thankfully, the recipe produced two big loaves because we proceeded to eat almost half a loaf during our little tasting episode!) You can find the recipe I used at It is entitled Challah 1. If you try it, I’m quite sure you won’t be disappointed.
