Karl’s Saffron Challah Dinner Rolls/Crackers

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.

Karl’s Chili Dogs

Jan and I were reminiscing about chili dogs the other day. Jan used to live only a mile away from Angelo’s in Fresno—a victim of eminent domain for the high speed rail—and in her mind the home of the ultimate chili dog. Eilene decided that she wanted chili dogs for her birthday meal—19 as of yesterday.

Jan’s Challahpeños

Jan and I were discussing what to have with the challah I was making. Jan wanted me to make super-mini challah in the mini-muffin pan. Jan piped up with you could put jalapeños in it and they would be  challahpeños! How far will this family go for a good pun? Apparently quite far.

Karl’s Challah Rolls

Adapted from a Leah Cooks Kosher recipe

Jan bought some salmon while she was in Seattle—a package of three different salmon for a tasting. She wanted it with fresh crackers for her birthday dinner. Miriam’s TMJ is so bad lately that she could not eat the crackers.  I decided to make challah, a very soft Jewish bread, for her to eat with her fish.
