Key_shaped_challahsWhat is Shlissel Challah?
"Shlissel or Key Challah, makes the first challah after Pesach even more special. This is a well observed custom you might want to try for yourself. You can do this by slipping a key directly in the challah, by baking it in the dough or placing it in the braids as you shape. Many even shape their challah to look like a key. Shlissel Challah is a segula, good omen, for parnassa, or livelihood. It's a very interesting custom with many sources and traditions." source: The Kosher Channel.com.

Try this with basil, tarragon, parsley, thyme, and sage for fresh garden herbs year round. After freezing the herbs in the olive oil, simply pop out and place in plastic freezer bags. Use these herb cubes as recipe starters.

Grilling fresh vegetables is a summer must!
