Old-fashioned braided breads like challah are something I knew well growing up with an Eastern European mother

When I came together with my wife, her Jewish roots elevated challah to a place of tradition for Shabbats and high holidays. The 2-tier style I like to make melds the past and present for me and is outstanding for French toast the next day on if there’s any leftover! STEP ONE – Preparations Get out a small and a medium bowl and a glass measuring cup. Get out the stand mixer and the dough hook attachment. Lightly spray a large baking sheet with canola spray. Set up a cooling rack. STEP TWO – Make the Dough Ingredients: 3 ½...

DISAPPOINTMENT

My disappointment was palpable this year after learning the 9th Annual World Food Championships (WFC), one of the largest events in food sport, had been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. WFC 2020 was scheduled to take place this fall in Dallas, Texas. While I may have been severely disappointed about the cancellation of this year’s competition, imagine the organizer’s lament after long hours of planning and preparations to conclude that it just wasn’t safe to hold WFC 2020. Equally disappointed upon hearing the news are the 1,400 cooks from 42 states and 15 countries. Some Good News: However, despite...

Some of the best gyros I’ve ever tasted were from our time in Detroit and Kansas City.  We moved to from Albuquerque to Detroit in 1990 where I got to see where Joe grew up in the great state of Michigan.  At that time we had two little boys under...

Gyros which was one of our frequent haunts in KC.  One thing about Mr. Gyros is that the servings are huge and everything tastes fresh.  This year has been challenging at best to find those those “little known” restaurants here in Albuquerque, especially not being able to sit down and experience a meal indoors.  We rarely go out except for takeout and I haven’t found a great Greek restaurant yet to recommend here in ABQ.  I’m sure it’s out there, I just haven’t found it!  Sorry for the long story but I have been craving a gyro which always brings...

Simple Master Bath

The bathroom tour is the first full room I’m sharing of the #raisingsimplehouse since we moved in. I’m excited to finally begin sharing what I have been working so hard on for 2 years now. Good things take time as they say and this is certainly no exception. My kids and I moved in 5 months ago and it’s been so rewarding to use the space I designed. There are a few things I would do differently but nothing major. It’s all part of the learning process. Also, I should mention there was drywall dust on my floor when I...
