Ode to Easter Memories, on to Kale and Hawaii.
Before saying goodbye to Easter I wanted to share a wonderful bread that many cultures make a variation of for festive seasons. A rich egg bread that would be called a Challah or Brioche or in my heritage Hefezopf. In Germany they braid the bread for this occasion and fashion it in a wreath. For other occasions it is just braided. It is great year around, not too sweet but an excellent morning bread or after noon snack with coffee. My dad for years has eaten this in the afternoon.
Some interesting notes also about it's bizarre history, Perhaps true.
I have been exploring kale again, not in smoothies but in a salad that actually tastes good and tender and not just good FOR you. We found a new addition to the culinary world in my block, Baby Kale.
Finally a Schnitzel to celebrate the coming of better weather in the northern hemisphere, Hawaiian Schnitzel that has what I think a simple and perfect combination of elements and fairly light.
