Holla for Challah

As usual, I am on deadline with a recipe that honors Chanukkah (which ends this evening).

Over the past weekend, I entertained a guest from New York City who asked that I make Challah bread French toast. Of course, I had to oblige.. and WOW was it a great taste sensation for a goy like me!
