At long last! The challah has arrived…
You didn’t think Carol only knew how to bake cookies did you? Not this Grandma! It’s in her DNA to bake, starting way back at an early age. Carol grew up baking with her mother in their home kitchen in Michigan. Pies, cookies, cakes, bread…you name it, they baked it. Quite often they’d bake up a feast for holiday get-togethers, and over the years holiday baking became one of their most cherished traditions.
It’s not only making sure that Carol’s granddaughters have the recipes (don’t get any ransom ideas, they don’t have THE recipe…yet), but that they also have the memories of baking these special recipes with their grandma and spending time with family. This is one way the Goldman’s express their love, through delicious treats. To Carol, not baking with her grandchildren would not be the holidays!
Of course, these traditions might have to change and adapt as time goes by. Family dynamics shift, they shrink and grow, members interests evolve, but what’s important is that you take the traditions that mean the most to you and continue to incorporate them in some way so that they’re carried on. If not for Carol’s mother making sure to bake with Carol at every holiday since she was a little girl, we might have never had the opportunity to enjoy these fantastic handmade cookies.
