more bread! and I still have a kitchen aid

I made challah today. It’s basically an egg bread that you’re supposed to eat on jewish holidays. Pretty delicious. My aunt gave me this cook book like 5 years ago and I never used it, until today. I wasn’t that impressed. It was your basic challah recipe, but the recipe said to refrigerate the dough to rise overnight and I only realized this halfway through making the bread. But I got impatient and just made it after 2 hours. It was…. okay.

 

I MIGHT have and organizational problem…
