Sweet Almond Bread Pudding with Raspberry Sauce

Although some people consider me a "baker," the irony is I don't even have much of a sweet tooth. Usually I bake to please others. However, I fell in love with Sweet Melissa's Sweet Almond Bread Pudding with Raspberry Sauce. Literally. After my second bread pudding, I needed to learn how to make it myself. Lucky for me, Candy Girl shared the recipe (from The Sweet Melissa Baking Book by Melissa Murphy) on her blog. Like Candy, I used Challah instead of brioche as my supermarket didn't have it either. The difference was insignificant so I have been using Challah ever since. The whole wheat is just a poor attempt at making it healthier. As for cutting the sugar, I often find many desserts too sweet, so I do this with everything I make. Click on the Read more link below for my version of the recipe.

On a side note, I made this yesterday for my friend, who has waited a year and half to eat it again. Happy birthday, Linda! Hope it was worth the wait :)

Fall 2010

was when I decided to leave my job and devote more time to activities that I never had time for. Number one on the list was to consume more home-cooked meals. It turns out that the fall is the best time to quit your job. Not only do you want to stay home in the colder months, but all you want to do is eat (or at least K and I do)! Since my budget was only $10 per day, we had no other choice. Needless to say, K and I spent a lot of time in the kitchen then. K started to photograph picture-worthy foods as well and posted them on facebook. Naturally, people wanted to have what we were having and asked for recipes. You'll be seeing those same foods here, with recipes, along with my other loves.
