Little and large ๐Ÿ˜ŠFriday challah. #challah #challahbraid #friday #fridaychallah

Shabbat shalom โœก๏ธ my beautiful friends ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• around the world. I want to thank you for the amazing outpouring of love and kindness you showered me with on my mom's first yartzheit. It made a very emotional day a whole lot lighter. Thank you for this. Each of you are so special to me and I wish only blessings for you.

Last year my mom's shiva period fell over the shabbos project. In fact one of the nights of prayers I almost couldn't pull together a minion. Most of the dad's were looking after kids while 4,000 challahs got baked at the Johannesburg challah bake a few blocks from my mom's home.

That Friday we had no less than 45 challahs dropped off at the house. Such is the strength and love of the Jewish community in South Africa ๐Ÿ‡ฟ๐Ÿ‡ฆโœก๏ธ. And on Saturday night I listened to the horas and dancing from my mom's garden as the #shabbosproject came to an end.

I thought how special it was to be sitting shiva for her when so many jews around the world were keeping shabbos. I also felt like she had carved out some quiet time for me to spend with Hashem and my beautiful sister Justine. And for the past year I've baked a challah every week and tried my best to keep shabbos.

I'm still a work in progress, but every shabbos I get better and I look forward to it each and every week... What I didn't realize last year, is that my mom's yarzheit would fall on the annual #challahbake. Something started by the amazing Jewish community in South Africa, that is now celebrated in 40 countries around the world.

Last night I had the pleasure and privilege of baking challahs alongside my precious daughter @jade.mayo and my beautiful best friend and rock @edvasims and her 2 gorgeous girls at the Los Angeles event. They even made a brocha for my mom Elke Raizels aliyah.

I know her neshama felt all the love from all over the world. You were a huge part of this. I want to wish you all an incredible, meaningful and special shabbos. I am blessed to have you as my family. And I wish only blessings for you and yours. I love you so much xxx Chef MM

MOST RECENT

Shabbat shalom y'all โœก๏ธโœก๏ธโœก๏ธ I don't know about you, but I couldn't be more stocked to slide into the weekend and flick the OFF switch and just chill out with my family and Hashem.

No technology, no to do lists, no places to be or projects to complete. Just stillness, tranquility and calm. Silence is His one and only voice. So use this time to chat to Him.

Confide in Him. Ask for His advice and guidance. Dream up grandiose plans with Him. Tell him your deepest fears and your biggest desires. Connect with Him. He is listening. You just have to open the door and let Him inside. He is waiting to spend time with you.

I never realized what a blessing it was. The peace that shabbos shines over my life. Now I couldn't imagine my life without it. It's one of the greatest gifts given to us by our Creator.

And as I've told you so often, you don't even need to be Jewish to take a day off. I mean think about it. He created the earth in 6 days and on the 7th He rested. He needed a day off and so do we.

We all need a break from the routine. Time to recharge our batteries. So I encourage you to just switch off for 24 hours and be still. May your candles ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธilluminate your homes and hearts. May you only know blessings my angels. I love you most xxx Chef MM

Sweetheart, a beautiful reminder to light a candle in the darkness with your life! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’•

Nothing beats the smell of home baked challah. Heaven sent. I want to wish you Shabbat shalom โœก๏ธโœก๏ธโœก๏ธ my beautiful friends.

A Jewish woman has 3 mitzvahs to fulfill, the rest fall on the men. Lighting shabbos candles to bring light into our home, making challah and kneading the blessings into the dough and feeding it to our families and going to the mikvah.

After my mom passed, I started keeping shabbos and making challah and was surprised at how much I looked forward to time out every week. And the past year was filled with so many exciting blessings from above.

But last night was the first time since my wedding that I've been to the mikvah. And my rebbetzen has been nagging me for 15 years so I figured why not. I have always felt most at peace in the water, and last night I was overcome with so much emotion when I submerged myself into it.

Tears poured from me. Tears of joy, gratitude and happiness for all my blessings. And I prayed for each of you. For all my family and friends around the world. I prayed that you only know light, love, mazel and good health.

I want to encourage you if you are not already lighting candles ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ in your home to do this one simple mitzvah tonight and try light them every shabbos. You don't even need to be Jewish to add your light, so light your candles too...As you know, even the smallest candle can illuminate the darkness.

I also want to encourage you to say a prayer tonight for someone who is facing a challenge in their lives. Health, personal or otherwise. It's so easy and simple to do but so powerful to pray for others.

This mitzvah brings more light into the world and right now the world could use a LOT more LIGHT. May your homes and hearts be filled with all of Hashem's blessings. I love you so much xxx Chef MM

Challav you so much Shabbos โœก๏ธ๐Ÿ’•โœก๏ธ๐Ÿต๏ธโœก๏ธ You are the gift of TIME given by Hashem to His people.

And every week you arrive right on TIME just when we need you the most. You bless us with TIME to relax, unwind and spend quality TIME with our Divine Creator. You give us TIME to reconnect to our inner essence and express our gratitude and acknowledge that everything we have including our TIME is because of HIM.

Wishing you all a wonderful shabbos. May your candles illuminate your homes and your hearts and may you only know blessings xxx Chef MM

Best naturally leavened challah Iโ€™ve made to date - Iโ€™m finally happy with my shaping and the crumb was wonderful and just as described by @urischeft in his book- soft like cotton candy. Same recipe- @urischeft converted to sourdough- but this time I leavened and proved the challah over a single day resulting in a considerably sweeter and lighter loaf. #fridaynight #naturallyleavenedchallah #sourdoughchallah #challah #challahbraid #shiptonmill #organic #mariswidgeonflour #natchlev #homebaked #crumbshot #f52grams

There's something about baking bread that's good for my soul. Here's my first ever Challah braid. I found the recipe in a #bettycrocker cookbook, so I don't know if it's authentic, but it was yummy! #challahbraid #bakingbread #bakingfromscratch #yeastbread #doublerise

Today I will be as useless as the "G" in LASAGNA

I am so looking forward to some downtime time with my Creator. There is so much to be thankful and grateful for in this gorgeous life. It's time to tune into the silence and dial back the hectic pace of the past week and just enjoy doing nothing. Yayyyyyyy.

I can't believe it's 7 years since you left Popsicle ๐Ÿ’” I'll always be your Captain.

Tonight as I light a yarzheit candle for my dad I want to share this poem I found in his siddur after he passed.

It has brought me so much comfort over the years, so tag someone who needs a lift right now. Shabbat shalom xxx MM

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say,ย 
But first of all to let you know that I arrived okay.ย 
I'm writing this from Heaven, where I dwell with God above,ย 
Where there are no tears or sadness, there is just eternal Love.
Please do not be unhappy, just because I'm out of sight,ย 
Remember that I'm with you, every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you, when my life on earth was through,ย 
God picked me up and hugged me, and said, ' I welcome you'. 'It's good to have you back again.ย 
You were missed while you were gone.ย 
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.ย 
I need you here so badly as part of my big plan.ย 
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man'. Then God gave me a list of things he wished for me to do.ย 
And foremost on that list of mine, is to watch and care for you.ย 
I will be beside you, every day of the week and year,ย 
And when you're sad I'm standing there, to wipe away the tear.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight,ย 
God and I are closest to you in the middle of the night.ย 
When you think of my life on Earth, and all those loving years,ย 
Because you're only human, there's bound to be some tears. But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
It was my philosophy and I'd like for you,ย 
To give unto the world, so the world will give to you.
If you can help someone who's in sorrow or in pain,
Then you can say to God at night, my day was not in vain.ย 
And now I am contented that my life it was worthwhile,ย 
Knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
When you're walking down the street and I am on your mind,ย 
I'm walking in your footsteps, only half a step behind.

When it's time for you to go from that body to be free,ย Remember you are not going, you are coming home to me.

As I stroll around the old city of Lucca I find myself marveling at all mankind has created. So much sweat, labor and effort to build this vast and sprawling city, it's ancient palaces and tall towers that reach for the clouds. Today as I take in all the splendor built with the hands of men, I am reminded again how important a day off is.

Shabbos is the most precious gift mankind has received from the treasured house of Hashem. All week we think, work and grind away. Our spirit is absent. But on shabbos the spirit stands in front of us in all His glory and begs us to let Him inside.

It is during this scared day of rest that we find ourselves plugged in to the Divine and connected to all the blessings of this amazing planet.

The higher goal of spiritual living is not to amass fame and fortune, but to face sacred moments of quiet connection. The inspiration that comes in this stillness transports us beyond the confines of measured time.

It is in this stillness that all the mayhem and noise makes sense. It is out of the calm that our dreams materialize and we feel whole and connected to all living things. Shabbat shalom my beautiful friends. May you only have green lights ahead of you xxx Chef MM

So I made a first attempt at challah โœก๏ธโœก๏ธโœก๏ธ with the 00 flour Italy is famous for. Oy vey is all I can say.

My hands were sticking to everything and I basically doubled the ratio of flour. The yeast was white in color and didn't really proof. I would glady welcome any tips you have for next week's attempt.

That said, I did say a brocha for all of you ๐Ÿ™. I cannot believe Saul and Jade will be here in just 2 days. I am so excited for them to see our new home.

While I look at my dough that refused to rise I am inspired by this gorgeous challah made by the fabulous and talented Amy @whatjewwannaeat and hoping next week I'll have more luck.

I'm looking so forward to a full day to connect and thank Hashem for all the blessings He has brought my way. Thank you for following along on my Italian adventures. It's so much more fun with you. Shabbat shalom xxx Chef MM

24 hours with my Father โœก๏ธโœก๏ธโœก๏ธ. I could not think of anything better. His perfect timing each week amazes and astounds me. Just when I need to rest, recharge and recenter, Shabbat arrives in all its' glory.

Today is the last shabbos I have with my family before I head out on my 3 month Italian adventure. I am so blessed to be able to spend some quiet, alone time with them and more importantly with Hashem.

This entire week I've been fighting the urge to pinch myself. I cannot believe this dream is finally a reality. Today when I kneaded my challah, I made a brocha for all of you. I prayed that Hashem would bless you with all your heart desires and craves.

I thought back on so many people, including my late mom, that thought this plan was an impossibility. But, not once did my faith in Him waver. We had long chats everyday about my Italian dream and even longer ones on shabbos. Always I knew He was in my corner. Call it Divine trust.

So as you wish, hope and make grand plans for the future, I encourage you to turn inwards and brainstorm with Him. The solutions you are looking for won't come from external sources but rather the Divine light of Hashem that burns brightly inside you.

Wishing you a blessed shabbos this and every week. Looking forward to trying out my challah with 00 flour in Lucca next week. And I hope you will join me in lighting your candles wherever you are. May you only know blessings, simchas and nachas. I love you so much xxx Chef MM

The Shabbos angels are peaking through my window โœก๏ธโœก๏ธโœก๏ธ
Imaโ€™s lighting candles, and Abbaโ€™s going to shul.
Shabbat Shalom, Shabbat Shalom, Shabbat Shalom... To every one of you,
Shabbat Shalom, Shabbat Shalom, Shabbat Shalom... To every single Jew.

I learned this song when Jade was in preschool, and every Friday night after candle lighting we all sing it and dance around in a circle.

It's been my happy shabbos song for over 10 years. I hope your home is filled with songs, happiness, love, laughter and music this and every shabbos. And stay tuned for my shavuot menu coming next week. Good shabbos my beautiful friends ๐Ÿท๐Ÿž๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธxxx Chef MM

Braid Game Strong ! Our Challah bread is made fresh every day in our factory ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ #challahbread #challahbraid #challahlife

Last week was Holocaust Rememberance Day and I came across this poem on the Internet written by a Jewish Prisoner on a wall in one of the Nazi Concentration Camps .โœก๏ธโœก๏ธโœก๏ธโœก๏ธ It touched me so much I thought I'd share it with you this shabbos.

I believe in the sun
even when it is not shining
And I believe in love,
even when thereโ€™s no one there.
And I believe in God,
even when he is silent.
I believe through any trial,
there is always a way.

But sometimes in this suffering
and hopeless despair
My heart cries for shelter,
to know someoneโ€™s there
But a voice rises within me, saying hold on
my child, Iโ€™ll give you strength,
Iโ€™ll give you hope. Just stay a little while.

I believe in the sun
even when it is not shining
And I believe in love
even when thereโ€™s no one there
But I believe in God
even when he is silent
I believe through any trial
there is always a way.

May there someday be sunshine
May there someday be happiness
May there someday be love
May there someday be peace.

Shabbat shalom my beautiful friends. May you only know blessings. May your candles illuminate your homes and hearts ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธAnd if you are looking for a great challah recipe check out my website and watch my 2 minute video. Have a magical shabbos xxx Chef MM

Little and large ๐Ÿ˜ŠFriday challah. #challah #challahbraid #friday #fridaychallah

A 3 foot beauty. Thanks to the skills of @sailthemoon, a lucky wedding will have a wonderful celebratory challah to enjoy. Please don't crash the festivities just to try it... we have more modest braids available here at the BBC. #lesshatemorebread #challahbackgirl #challahbread #challahbraid #challahbraiding #goldenbrown #nofilter

SHLISSEL or KEY CHALLAH ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ”‘โœก๏ธ is the first challah we bake after Passover.

Now if you have ever been through a Pesach without eating anything that rose... you know how much we appreciate chometz and bread.

So on this shabbos, with the mitzavh of challah baking ever present and our understanding of the blessings of rising to greater heights, the key of your home is enclosed into the challah that is shaped like a key. Shlissel Challah brings love, light, blessings and fortune to your home in the upcoming year.

Wishing you a wonderful shabbos and may your table always be filled with the most important thing. No not food (even though I am a chef). May it's always be filled with guest. Friends and family to help you celebrate this wonderful day of rest. May Hashem continue to bless you and your family. Shabbat shalom xxx Chef MM

Happy easter! #challahbraid

It's shabbos again. Yayyyyyyy. And after a really busy week I'm looking so forward to a quiet, peaceful day of rest.

And I am crushing so hard on these gorgeous rainbow colored โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’œ challahs by the @challahgirls . Just Magnificent.

I encourage you to spend time outdoors in nature this shabbos. Look at all the rainbow colored flowers.

We never walk into our garden and say "Oh wouldn't that flower be so much prettier if it were taller or thinner? Or red instead of yellow?" NO...we don't. Because nature was created perfect just as it is.

And so it is with you. You are part of nature. You are just how you we're meant to be. You are perfect just as you are. You are beautiful, special, unique and wonderful

So take some time this shabbos to thank Hashem for all your blessings. . Have a fantastic weekend. Love, light and blessings xxx Chef MM

IT'S FINALLY HERE.... Yippee! CHALLAH BACK Y'ALL.

So many of you have been asking for a challah recipe and I want to apologize for taking so long to post it. It's my favorite one from the Chabad of Brentwood.

I've tried many different recipes over the years and time and time again, this one has risen to the top. My family voted it, the hands down WINNER. And the best part, is it is flop proof.

CHECK OUT THE 2 MINUTE VIDEO (link in my profile). And the full recipe is on my website.

I want to thank you for being part of my community. I consider myself so humbled and blessed to be able to share in your Shabbos in some small way. I couldnโ€™t do what I do without each of you. You are my family.

Shabbat Shalom. Only love, light and blessings ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿท๐Ÿ™ xxx Chef MM

The Shabbath is the day we stand still and let all our blessings catch up with us.

So remember to count even the simplest blessings, like your eyes that allow you to see the beauty of a rose, or your hands you used to make coffee this morning or your taste buds that allow you to enjoy the sweet fresh baked challah.

Acts of kindness never die. They linger in the memory, giving life to other acts in return. So this shabbos show a little chessed to a total stranger. Shabbat shalom. Love, light and blessings xxxx Chef MM

It's my favorite time of the week again. You guessed it. It's shabbos. A time to gather with family and friends...But the best part is that it's a day of rest. A time to reconnect with ourself and G-d.

So I want to encourage my non Jewish friends to try out this amazing tradition. Whether you call him Hashem, Krishna, Buddha, Christ, Rah or Mohammed... We are all children of the Creator.

We are all part of this same Divine Universe. We are all connected no matter what religion we follow. And all of us could do with a peaceful day off in this hectic, crazy, frantic paced life.

So give shabbos a try. Cause on the 7th day even G-d needed to take a break. So just tune into nature and stillness and see how recharged you feel. And how much more light you have to share with those around you after the downtime.

Shabbat shalom. May you only know peace, love, light and blessings xxx Chef MM
