A few months ago, I made challah rolls and crackers for one of my dinners. This weekend Jan asked for a crab feast, so I thought I would make this delicious bread again. Instead of making a classic braided loaf, I decided to make challah dinner rolls with half of my dough for Miriam. I turned the rest of the dough into crackers to please my wife. Of course, I could not make it exactly the same.

Since I started making fresh cream crackers, I have made many variations on the basic recipe. I have made them with sesame seeds, rosemary and parmesan, raspberries, za’atar, and even French onion soup. This week, I decided to seasoned them with Italian spices—oregano and basil—with Parmesan and Romano cheeses.
I’m making big plate chicken, and while this is a Central Asian dish, I decided to make challah as my starch. I thought that the soft bread would be good for daughter Miriam, because TMJ is so bad lately. Wife Jan said, “It’s my birthday and I want crackers.” To please them both, I used the same dough to make some of each.
I made minestrone soup for Sunday dinner. Wife Jan asked for zucchini bread to go with it. While it has been a long time since I have made this bread, there is a family history behind this bread.
