As I mentioned below, I had the pleasure of chatting all things leftovers on Saturday morning, on the Fresh & Local radio show, with host Susan Berkson and Mike Madison of local hip hop group Unknown Prophets.

Challah with Honey-Rosemary Butter

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 1, 2011 at 4:51pm

Tender, egg-y challah bread is lovely on the Thanksgiving table. Not only is it pretty, but it harkens back to my mom’s yeasty homemade crescent rolls, but for about one-tenth of the effort. The honey-rosemary butter plays nicely with turkey, squash, and stuffing. And everything. Challah Makes one large loaf 4 c. bread flour (unbleached…
