Daring Bakers Challenge: Challah Back, Y’all!

A few months ago I joined the Daring Kitchen, but it took until now for me to find the time onions to participate in a challenge. I'd just been saying to my boyfriend that I wanted to try baking bread, when I logged on to check what this month's challenge was.

May’s Daring Bakers’ Challenge was pretty twisted – Ruth from The Crafts of Mommyhood challenged us to make challah! Using recipes from all over, and tips from “A Taste of Challah,” by Tamar Ansh, she encouraged us to bake beautifully braided breads.

Cause I ain’t no challah back girl…

Cook Book Challenge: Week 15

This weeks recipe comes from the second book mentioned in my CBC post last week that was full of epicness:

I've cooked several times out of this book already. I love it.

The one I am choosing to share for the cook book challenge is Chicken and Banana Squares.

Does that sound as repulsive to you as it did to me what I first saw it? Couple with the fact I hate cooked banana – why would anyone want to eat that with chicken?

It sounded so gross it made me insanely curious. I just had to try this.

The result was surprising.
