Yes, I work full time (very). Yes, I have four children, including a very trying one-year-old. But I still manage to fit in homemade challah. Here is my secret.
Daughters. At least one, but preferably two or three. The more, the merrier!
I may post other secret tips for homemade challah - like the perfect amount of rising time and really good pans. But without my daughters to braid the dough for me, I confess: we would be suffering with the store bought stuff.

ABOUT ME (AND THIS BLOG)
If you're an ordinary person who wants simple ideas for eating kosher, you've come to the right place! I'm just an ordinary Jewish working mom who lives a harried, busy life. I created this blog to share my ideas about how to eat kosher (and usually healthy!) without spending all day shopping, eating, cooking, and measuring portions. I hope you enjoy your visit here.
