I absolutely adore bread pudding, and this pumpkin bread pudding is no different. I was never much of a fan as a child, but something happened when I started college. I don’t know if it was the comfort food aspects of it, or what, but I started having bread pudding on a regular basis.
This pumpkin bread pudding with homemade caramel sauce is easy, fairly quick, and nade to impress your friends. Serve it as a fantastic dessert or as breakfast on a special day.

Confession time: I am not a fan of pizza. I think it happened when I was working somewhere where we ate pizza like 3 or 4 times a week. Eventually, I just became like “NO MAS!” and I tapped out.
That’s not to say I don’t ever eat pizza. It’s just not a common occurrence. And to get me to eat pizza, it usually has to be a really, really good pizza. Enter grilled pizza.
I’m all about quick, easy, and tasty when it comes to meals. I suppose I should throw healthy in there, but let’s be honest – it’s generally more about the first three. Minute Rice helps with all of these components. I’m a busy person, and I don’t have the time, or desire, to slave over a hot stove. Especially when a lot of the time, I’m just cooking for me.
Dejage is a dish that I used to go out to have. There was a great Mediterranean restaurant locally, that, unfortunately, has closed. I scoured the internet looking for a similar recipe. Alas, there was nary a one to be had. After having it on a regular basis, I knew I could make a reasonable facsimile at home. As with most Mediterranean recipes, this is loaded with good for you ingredients like olive oil, lemon, and chock full of veggies. This recipe is as healthy as it is delicious. It's really easy to change up, too.
I love coffee. But I’m really picky. I can’t just open a can of any old grocery store coffee and make a pot. Oh no. It needs to be something really delightful and exotic. And, really, it should go without saying that fresh roasted coffee is just about mandatory. While I often prefer an elaborate frou frou coffee drink, if I’m going to have brewed coffee, I like mine from a French Press.
I love a good dip. Heck, I love appetizers, and have to admit – sometimes, I don’t see the need for a main course. One of my favorite dips is Spinach & Artichoke dip, but it can be so heavy and bad for you. This version is much lighter in calories, yet still has a rich and satisfying taste and texture. One of the secrets is Progresso Recipe Starters.
