In the kitchen...

I haven't posted much about food lately, 
but rest assured that I've still been
busy with culinary creativity!

Here are two of my recent favorites.

Challah (braided egg bread) is so pretty
that you almost don't want to eat it, 

It has the best sweet aroma when baking, 
making the whole house smell divine.
I also recently had a wild & crazy time teaching 
six kids (aged 4-8 years old)
how to make challah & homemade grape juice.
It was a mess, but really fun!

Oooh, just look at that orange zest!
This beauty is a citrus zest & blueberry olive oil cake.
I used oranges for the zest & fresh juice, 
a meyer lemon olive oil that we picked up on our wine country trip,
 and finally some fresh blueberries from the farmer's market.

The result is the perfect summer cake!

Would you like me to post the recipe? I'm happy to share!

The Challah bread is beautiful! I think I am partial to the cake! It looks delicious.

Ahh, the bread looks so good. Yes, please post the recipe! Our summer just started and I'm experimenting on different new 'hobbies' and would love to know.
