    Consistently Soft and Tasty

    I love your challah book because it's so beautifully produced, and so inviting. Your challah recipe is excellent, consistently soft and tasty - amazing considering it has no eggs. My sister tasted it at my house and became converted ... she switched her challah recipe for mine!

    Incredible… A Delightful Change

    Your Pomegranate Cake and Honey-Wine Salmon were both incredible! My family & guests are bored with the same old Yom Tov foods and these were a delightful change. My guests were thrilled to enjoy something different.

    The Highlight of my Trip

    The highlight of my trip was your challah class. I have already embarked on making challah for the first time-myself!

    Everything Came Out Great

    I want to thank you so much for the Pesach cookbook. I enjoyed it a lot and everything I made came out great. My biggest hits were the stuffed pumpkin squash and the potato kugel with the meat inside!!!

    Three Generations Enjoying Challah

    I bought two of your challah cookbooks and I gave one to my daughter. Well, here is a picture of my twin grandchildren reaching for the bread we baked. They kept trying to grab the bread and saying "hot" as we snapped pictures! They will be 2 years old in September. Enjoy the photos.

    A Memorable Challah Show

    Thank you sooooo much for the challah show tonight. My kids loved you and my grandchildren will remember you for a long time... May HaShem bless you and yours with many smachot in good health and with good mazal.

    Love Your Cookies!

    We love your basic cookie recipe coated in crushed peanuts that came up in Hamodia!

    Muffins How They are Meant to be

    I am thrilled with your recipe for Pesach Applesauce Muffins. My daughters usually comment “you reduce the sugar and change the recipe so its not how its meant to be.” I didn’t have to this time, it is all wholemeal flour and so wholesome. Miss Critical goes for them whenever she misses a meal! Thank you so much and keep these healthy recipes coming.

    My Grandson’s Favorite

    I've been making your non-gebroks butternut squash kugel and mushroom quiches since they first appeared. The squash dish is my grandson's favorite, and with my daughter now gluten free, it's been appearing ever more often! Chag sameach and keep up the good work!

    Just the Best Ever

    Your recipe Yum, Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies are just the best ever. I doubled the recipe as I do for all my cakes and cookies for Pesach. I also chopped up chocolate instead of using chocolate chips. They are absolutely the best ever. I know my children and grandchildren will have a field day and want the recipe.

    Braid Challah With my Eyes Closed

    For years I tried braiding challah with six strands following diagrams and instructions in recipe books, but I could not get the hang of it. UNTIL some years ago when you had an article in Binah that included user-friendly diagrams and instructions. After successfully managing using the paper a number of times, I can now do it almost with closed eyes! Not only have you enhanced our Shabbos but you have also boosted my confidence!
