Breakfast Bread Pudding

I love me some bread pudding, yet I never make it.    You can be assured that if it is on the menu when we dine out, I will order it.    Chocolate bread pudding, pumpkin bread pudding, traditional Southern bread pudding with whiskey sauce.   It matters not.

Bread Machine Raisin Bread

There was a time  when the adults in the family still gave and received purchased gifts.   This was before we decided we had too much STUFF and as gifts began to collect dust or take up storage and attic spaces.  The presents typically were a bit pricey and extravagant as well and you can . . . → Read More: Bread Machine Raisin Bread

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Muffins (and a weird squash)

Have you ever been over to M.J.’s Kitchen?   If not, you must stumbled over there as soon as you are able.

Last January, M.J. posted about an unusual squash with an unusual name:   Cushaw Pumpkin.   These things do not look like pumpkins at all.     Besides the weird name, they were . . . → Read More: Whole Wheat Pumpkin Muffins (and a weird squash)

Blueberry-Granola Coffee Cake

What’s one of the most delicious and fattening and unhealthy things for breakfast?   That could very well be a loaded question.

For me, it is coffee cake.   If it is on a brunch buffet, I am taking two pieces.

If I am driving through TenBucks (as The Hubs calls it), I will get a piece . . . → Read More: Blueberry-Granola Coffee Cake

The Best Banana Bread Ever

I have been posting a lot of absolutes lately:

Raspberry Muffins

As I made Chef Sarah’s Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes with Milk Chocolate Earl Grey Buttercream, I defrosted some raspberries for the delicious center of these cupcakes.    I had about 2 cups leftover.   I was definitely not making enough batches of these cupcakes to use up the rest.   (Each cupcake contained only one raspberry.)
