The first time I made challah I nearly cried. Ok, not nearly. I full-fledged cried. I was expecting instant success because I did everything right. However, I was left with dense (in a bad way), crumbly (in a bad way), tasteless (is there a good way?!) poor excuses for braided bread undeserving of being called "challah".

Get it together, science.) because at any given moment someone, somewhere, needs something to be wiped and it would be a shame for the minced garlic to burn.. again.. ugh.
