Pillowy Honey, Apple, Cranberry Challah

For some reason, I’ve been day dreaming of challah for two days: thinking if pillowy, shiny brown mounds of the plaited loaf, full of some sweet filling and swirling with flavor.

Provisioning for the Bahamas: What Worked, What Didn’t.

I do this. Kai does this. And now, Rev does this, because she has little genetic material to lead her elsewhere.
