Tasty Tuesday: Biscuit Bread Pudding

Yes, I know it's not Tuesday any more, but I like the sound of Tasty Tuesday and I really wanted to share this recipe with you all.

With three of us, we rarely eat an entire plate of biscuits.  I almost always cut the recipe in half, but last night, even with cutting the recipe in half, I still had a ton of biscuits left over.  I began to wonder if bread pudding was an option.  I did some googling and came up with this biscuit bread pudding from Homesick Texan.  I wanted to pin it, but Pinterest doesn't always recognize all the things I recognize.  So here are my photos and what I did in adapting it

 Doesn't that just look tasty?  It was, very tasty.  I liked it.  


Here's a close up so you can see all the nummy fruit.

I greased the pan and then crumbled the biscuits in it.  Poured over two cups of milk and let it rest.  I then proceeded to beat two eggs and add a half cup each of brown and white sugar.  I also added cinnamon (which I would leave out if I were making chocolate again), vanilla, salt and cocoa powder.  Mixed all that up and then added it to the bread and milk in the pan, mixed it all up until it was pretty much the same color all over.  Added in some dried berry mix which is heavy on the cherries, but has bits of other things, too.  Cooked it in a 375 degree oven for just about 45 minutes.  We didn't let it cool long before digging in.  I had an extra bite with a bit of Sanders' caramel drizzled on top. I was able to teach Hannah the meaning of "Gilding the Lily" with that trick.  

It think it's great for breakfast, snack or dessert.  Bread pudding is a great way to use up bread that would other wise go to waste, it's like the culinary version of reduce reuse recycle.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

James Week 10 James 5: 13-20

We finish up our study on James with some encouraging words about prayer and standing in the gap.




Study Questions Week 10


When you don't feel like yourself, what is generally your first response? Do you start with prayer, rest, food, lashing out at others? When you encounter others that are not acting like themselves what is your initial thought? How do you think your relationships would be different if you began those interactions with prayers? Prayers for understanding for yourself and peace for the other person?When you are happy, do you ever try to keep it to yourself because you don't want to celebrate while others around you are struggling? Can focusing our happiness towards God with praise and worship change how we view sharing those moments? God is the source of every good and perfect gift (James 1:17). How can this verse help shape your worship and praise? Take some time this week to praise God for some good gifts, which are present even if you are in the midst of a s…

Project 52: Shiver me dufuses

This date I pulled out a puzzle that I had bought for Joel years ago.  I put up a little camp table, and even devised a system to keep the pieces in place with some fabric, so we could roll it up and stow it.  I was all ready to go and then the reality of the puzzle set in and I realised, I don't like puzzles.  I was already frustrated and worn out by the darn thing and we were only a mere few minutes into working on it!  Instead of getting upset, we changed plans.

The puzzle was abandoned and Joel went out for a shamrock shake from McD's and two cherry pies.  We played some MadLibs.  The one we bought for Hannah today was Pirate themed and the story that was the funniest included a peg elbow and a pet pencil sitting on your shoulder saying "Shiver me dufuses!" We even had a joke book that we'd picked up for Hannah and read a couple of terrible jokes to one another while shuffling cards for cribbage.

A fun night full of laughter and green shakes.  Well, I'm o…
