Sara's daughter wants to make cinnamon chip challah for the High Holy Days. She's also experimenting with their Buttery Dough flavor (which I've also tried a few times!).
Hodesh Tov, blog friends! It's Elul already. Can you believe we're just a month away from the Yamim Noraim? Rosh Hashanah is one of my favorite times of the year. In our house, we're already preparing. My dear husband, The Hazz, is vocalizing away on the special melodies and prayers for the high holidays. This year, I'll be starting a doctoral program the day after Yom Kippur, so there's lots of planning there. And of course, there's the food...
Last year, we experimented with Apple Challah and Pumpkin Challah. Stay tuned this year... I'm refining both of those recipes a bit this year and am also working on some new recipes for Rosh Hashanah. I can't wait to share them with you!
In honor of starting the new year of 5773 off right, I asked the good people over at King Arthur Flour if they would be interested in sponsoring a giveaway here on The Challah Blog. My mother-in-law, who lives in Rhode Island, has visited their store and school in Norwich, Vermont several times. Ever since she sent me a gift card for my first batch of King Arthur Flour, I've been hooked! I love that the company was formed in 1790, has a strong committment to sustainability and social responsibility, and is employee-owned.
But really, I love King Arthur Flours because their flours are so AWESOME. I've made sourdough, bagels, spelt and kamut challah, and every week, I use King Arthur Bread Flour in my challah.
King Arthur Flour is offering YOU the chance to win this awesome Dough Whisk in honor of Rosh Hashanah. I use this dough whisk every time I bake to mix my dough by hand before using the stand mixer. If you don't own a stand mixer, this whisk will do the dirty work for you, getting that dough nice and blended. Additionally, they'll send you a coupon for a FREE 5 LB. BAG of Bread Flour, good at your local grocery store. (If the winner lives in an area that doesn't carry King Arthur Flour, the company will be happy to send you a bag.)
PRIZE: KAF Dough Whisk and Coupon for 5 lb. Bag of Bread Flour

Note: I was not compensated, and I did not receive any products from King Arthur Flour for hosting this giveaway on my blog. I purchased my own dough whisk and flour; all opinions are honest and my own.
