ah no, halloween is already over…
Hope everyone is recovering from the scary halloween movie/sugar high-induced nightmares. Our choice of Halloween dessert, alone, was nightmare-inducing. (Check out my insta-story, asap!)
I may or may not have made Darwin sleep right next to me all night in order to protect me from balcony ninjas. Not that he would be any good at that anyway, seeing as how he gets scared by terrifying yip yip dogs, golf clubs, and the rear windshield wiper. -_- Despite his anti-cujo tendencies, fuzzybritches is always comforting, calming, and stress-relieving.
Pesto-Stuffed Challah with Parmesan
Aka my new favorite, go-to, easy bread recipe. (Sssshhhh, focaccia, i still love you.)
Challah is a very forgiving dough, so it is lots more fun playing with mix-ins and different flavors. Challah is light and fluffy inside with a crispy, golden-brown outside. Perfect for dunking in soup, toasting for a snack, and even carrying a juicy burger.
This pesto-stuffed challah has swirls of pesto and parmesan through each strand of the braid. (Pro Tip: dunking it in extra pesto makes it EVEN better.) I love to reheat a slice of challah in the microwave, so the parmesan and pesto get a little gooey. But it is also great for making a capresi sandwich. (Pesto, tomato, mozzarella… done.)
Stay tuned for more variations . . . I’m addicted.
