With my late work hours and busy weekends preparing for Yom Tov, I’ve grown to love (again!) my crockpot. At least twice a week it gets used – chicken and rice, split pea soup and a new recipe from my “Twitter” friend, Caroline – Taco Soup! I’ll post another recipe for that another time, but it does call for a pack of Taco Seasoning. Has anyone else ever noticed the sodium count on those! Oh Boy!
On a mission to find a healthier version, here is the recipe I came up with.
I never understood why chicken soup was a requirement on families weekly Shabbat and Yom Tov tables. I get it. It’s yum. It’s wonderful with lokshen. Or matzah balls.
But, it holds up a burner on my stovetop for 6-8 hours and can cost a small fortune. Granted, you can make lots of containers of it, and throw it in the freezer. But there are so many more recipes to try!

I’ve tried to push the envelope for a fun apple challah recipe for the holidays! Adding pomegranates takes it over.the.edge! I may have had to break into it to taste! Yum! Yum! With a drizzle of extra honey, what could be better?
Feel free to use your favorite challah dough recipes – egg, water, whole wheat, or even store bought frozen. What I love about this recipe is it’s ease! I’m now working very fulltime, with a long commute to boot (and loving it all!). Baking challah weekly isn’t something I haven’t been able to work into the schedule, unfortunately! So when I was introduced to a new item on the market,Viola! Hallah! I couldn’t have been more excited! Little mess, little fuss, great results!
