Bread Pudding with Praline Sauce

Give me an assignment to make bread and I’m on it! And a dessert where the main ingredient is bread, I’m really on it! So when Jurga asked me to bring Bread Pudding with Praline Sauce to their Rock ‘n Roll Gr8 dinner, I couldn’t wait to get into the kitchen! Any dish that starts with a buttered pan filled with bread has got to be Gr8! Growing up, bread pudding was one of my favorite desserts…

Java Almond Fudge Ice Cream

When I was younger, on the weekends, my best friend Gina and I would ride our bikes to the ice cream shop, Baskin- Robbins. Back in the day it was called “Baskin-Robbins 31 Flavors”.

The name comes from the French, meaning “rice with almonds.” The base of this dessert…

The holiday season is here, and it’s time for some traditional baking of cookies, breads and pies. Here in our home we love this French Apple Cranberry Pie. It’s a festive, colorful twist on the traditional apple pie, perfect for a Thanksgiving, Christmas or Hanukkah table. This recipe is easy to make using just a single pie crust, some apples, cranberries with seasonings and a scrumptious buttery crumb topping. There’s no need to struggle…

English Toffee with Toasted Almonds

Every Christmas season I make pounds and pounds of this toffee for my family, friends and neighbors. The recipe is quite easy and delicious! The only tricky part can be the caramelization process. Many toffee recipes don’t require the use of a candy thermometer, but I wouldn’t dream of making mine without one. It comes out perfectly every time! I use a digital candy thermometer. The key is to keep the heat at the same temperature…
