    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!
