Freshly Baked Goods Friday: Rosh Hashanah edition

The other night, the Resident Ulpanistit and I baked challah. As is the custom right before Rosh Hashanah, we made enough to separate challah with a brachah.

Here are the results of our efforts:


Another baked (or oven-cooked, to be more precise) Rosh Hashanah offering from the kitchen here in TRLEOOB* is tzimmes:

Finally, the entire staff wishes all our readers a wonderful, happy, healthy, and sweet new year.

  1. Ketiva vaChatima Tova!!!

    (And enjoy the challot :-)

    I think our resident ulpanistit will be baking challot tomorrow...

  2. Shana your round challot. I suffered through making those in past years; I think I made them too big. This year I made lots of little round ones.

    Catch on the flip side of the hag!

  3. Wow - gorgeous! We made (first time ever) chocolate chip chalot, and they were SO pretty, but we were so rushed that we didn't have a chance to photograph them... I guess we'll just have to do it again :)

    Shana Tova!

  4. Jameel - Aren't resident ulpanistiyot great? :-) Ours is busy preparing for her peulat petichah as a new madrichah. I suspect that the whole hadrachah thing will prove to be yet another excellent source of blog material...

    Leora - I hope you had a wonderful Rosh Hashanah! How did your little challot come out?

    Toby - Thanks. Chocolate chip challot? Sounds delicious! Most of the kids aren't big fans of challah with raisins, but I'm sure they'd love challah with choc. chips...

    Tzom kal u'mo'il to all!
