My youngest son finally got in the kitchen to bake. It only took a homework assignment and a cute classmate to get him into the kitchen.

Lauren brought all of the ingredients and the bread machine to make her grandmother’sChalla bread (bread machine version) recipe.

Evan showed up with bed head, t-shirt, and flip-flops. !

This Challah bread recipe is from my son’s longest girl (friend’s) grandmother. Just listening to Lauren and Evan in the kitchen was worth the carbs.

The bread was that yummy. And the conversation between these two long-time friends was just as good!

God Bless Little Lauren (petite) for taking control of this weekend’s homework assignment.


The best part of this Challah bread was I had no part in baking it.

This recipe was for my son’s English assignment. And, Lauren aka “Little Lauren” agreed to make sure Evan got it right.

Do you own a bread machine? Wasn’t it just a few years ago everyone gave themselves a bread machine for the holidays? The question today is, do I need a carb-making appliance in my kitchen?

After “sampling” the Challah bread, I may have to rethink this appliance.


My favorite part of this recipe is the handwritten recipe from Lauren’s grandmother.

I shared this idea for handwritten notes.
