Another Monday, another weekend gone. Was yours a good one? Mine was fantastic, quite honestly. Among some much needed rest and relaxation, FH and I were very lucky to see Matisyahu in concert here in Grand Rapids. And it was … Continue reading
Whew! I just got done baking some challah I’m bringing for our oneg tonight…wanna take a sneak peek?
Oh man, I just want to eat it all. Right now.

I had wanted to make something fancy, but time was not on my side. I whipped this up, and FH loved it, despite it not taking long, nor involving anything exotic or labor-intensive. It was delicious, perfect… and simple. Isn’t it amazing how often all those things come together?
