Heart-Shaped Challah

Two years ago, I married my best friend.

The man of my dreams, the love of my life.

The least I could do is make him a themed-challah for this past Shabbat. Remember these woven hearts from grade school? That's what I used to base this shape.

First I laid out six strands as so, with some strands longer than others.

Then I wove each strand together like the paper hear.

I tucked under each strand, sawing off extra if necessary.

Then I just "blobbed" the top portion together and rounded it out. Pretty scientific, huh?

The result was lovely. I informed The Hazz, "You can't look at the challah. It's covered in a towel." Unfortunately, he informed me after we removed the challah cover at dinner that he guessed that it was a heart. He figured our anniversary was coming. No surprise!

Here's to many, many, many more years together!
