Shiksas guide to challah baking
Baking and Braiding Challah for Shabbat.
This is called the shiksa’s guide because I first rewrote it before my conversion. I’d never seen a challah before, so I didn’t have a clue. This is for other people who have never attempted challah before. It is a great recipe, I promise. I also put together a whole set of photos on Flickr to help people with Challah baking .
