    Made a few changes based on my pantry....OMG best Challah ever. My 2 sons and I ate every tasty morsel! My subs were butter for margarine, canola for soy, ground flax for wheat germ and orange blossom honey. Cannot say enough good things....I made one plain and one with cinnamon-sugar. This dough is a dream although I always seem to need more flour. Make this TODAY!

    I can't find the soy oil or the buckwheat honey at whole foods nor publix in florida. Any suggestions where I can get these two?

    Saw this on TV on one of my recorded episodes last night, and got excited & made it today. It looks fantastic, smells fantastic, tastes fantastic!! I made the fruit one - yum! Nice & easy instructions, great dough to work with. Rose beautifully as advertised & looks like something from a store. Wow! Haven't made a fruit yeast bread like this before, but I think there'll be more. I used butter, not margarine. i halved the recipe & made only one - big mistake! It's nearly all gone.Make two...!!

    Print and save options are at the bottom of the vertical bar on the far left of the screen, under the Tweet button.

    The lack of a print command (and adding it to the lame new shopping list app doesn't really help) makes the website much less user friendly. Horrible "upgrade".

    It seems that you have to add this to your Shopping List and then save it to the Recipe Box. You can print out the list and receipe from there.

    Where is the print link and the archives, I used both very often. Working people need these links.
