    Blessed Wyoming Mom's Note:

    The challah my mom always served at our holiday table when I was growing up. It is simple, yet fraught with childhood memories. *The flour amount is an estimate. A cup or two more or less might be necessary based upon your climate, weather, etc. **Can also make 4 smaller loaves rather than 2 larger ones.
