What if the smell of fresh bread could turn your house into a home? And what if the act of making the bread--mixing and kneading, watching and waiting--could heal your heartache and your emptiness, your sense of being overwhelmed? It can. This is the surprise that physician-mother Beth Ricanati learned when she started baking challah: that simply stopping and baking bread was the best medicine she could prescribe for women in a fast-paced world.
