Bread Pudding and Vanilla Sauce…

My adventures yesterday took me to making Bread Pudding and Vanilla Sauce! I had never made this before, but to my surprise it was actually very easy. Next time I may add a few things to it…maybe some walnuts or chocolate chips, just to experiment. LoL! Anyway, here are the recipe’s I used! Very Tasty!!!


Bread Pudding


3 eggs (beaten)

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 tablespoons light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup butter (melted)

3 cups milk

10 slices hearty farmhouse bread (toasted and cut into cubes) I myself used an 8 pack of hotdog buns, opened them up and put them on a cookie sheet and toasted them in the oven and they worked perfectly! Just the right amount!

1 cup raisins



Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees, grease a 2 quart baking dish.

In a mixing bowl, whisk the 3 eggs, sugar and brown sugar, cinnamon, butter and milk together.

Gently stir in the bread crumbs and raisins, and then lightly spoon mixture into the prepared dish.

Bake until browned and set in the middle, about 55 minutes to an hour. Cover with foil after about 30 minutes to prevent over browning. Let stand for about 10 minutes before serving.


Vanilla Sauce



1/2 cup light brown sugar

1 tablespoon flour (I used 2 tablespoons)

a pinch of cinnamon

a pinch of salt

1 egg

2 tablespoons butter (melted)

1 tablespoon of vanilla (I used 1 1/2)



Whisk everything together in a heavy saucepan until smooth. Heat over medium heat, whisking constantly, until thickened and sauce coats the back of a spoon about 10 to 15 minutes.

Pour sauce over warm bread pudding….

Refrigerate any leftovers for later!

Homemade Egg Noodles

Well Good morning to all my Friends and Family! I know it has been a few days since my last post and I am sorry about that, but I have been working many hours this week. I have not cooked or baked anything new this week and have been sitting here trying to decide what my next post would be about and what sort of recipe I wanted to share today.

Joe and I were talking a few weeks ago about how our Grandmother’s used to make the best homemade noodles! So we did a little digging around on the internet and found this recipe for homemade egg noodles and we made them. We never took any pictures though, as we didn’t know at the time we would start writing this blog. We thought that making your own noodles would be very difficult, because no one ever makes their own anymore. It is sort of a forgotten technique now a days. We found that making your own is actually very simple, with a little effort.


Egg Noodles

Servings: about 6


2 1/2 cups flour

1 pinch of salt

2 eggs beaten

1/2 cup milk

1 tablespoon butter


# 1 – In a large bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Add the beaten eggs, milk, and butter. Knead the dough                  until smooth ( I used my Kitchen Aid Mixer on low setting with the dough hook attached ) about 5 minutes. Let  rest in a covered bowl for 10 minutes.

# 2 – On a floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/8 or 1/4 inch in thickness. ( HINT:  It helps if you let the pasta dry for about 20 minutes before cutting ). Cut into desired lengths and shapes.

# 3 – Allow to air dry until the cut shapes are no longer moist and sticky before cooking.

# 4 – Cook fresh pasta in a large pot with boiling, salted water and cook until al dente.
