    Chocolate Coconut Pudding

    April 1st, 2015

    Easy!  Amazing!  And not that bad for you!  Are you sold? From the time I told The Husband “I feel like baking” (which garnered no response, because there’s really never a four-hour interval when I’m not saying that) to the time I poured this chocolate coconut pudding into four little serving dishes, I think I […]

    Hazelnut Brioche Bread Pudding with Chocolate Cake Chunks

    August 31st, 2013

    I couldn’t stop myself. The dessert is amazing on its own, I know.  But I had a mini-loaf of my favorite chocolate cake (well, one of my most favoritest chocolate cakes ever) in the freezer, and it seemed to call out to me.  Asking to be baked into this bread pudding.  Who am I to resist? […]

    Pudding can be a special thing when it’s not made from a box of questionable “pudding powder”. (Not that there’s anything wrong with Jello Instant Pudding.  My Mom served the butterscotch and chocolate flavors on a regular basis, two flavors I’d be hard-pressed to choose between.  Strangely, I enjoyed coming across a spoonful with a […]

    When your Dad comes into town, and one of his favorite desserts ever (besides a Classic Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting) is rice pudding, you wipe aside the memory of a horrible version you made in 2004 and try again. (The memory is blurred around the edges, but it involves something like a tasteless block of rice- kind of like a bar. A barfy rice bar.)
    But that was then and this is now, and this recipe was a hit… especially with a little bit of cream poured over the top right before serving (Dad’s way of doing it).
    (Note- I think rice pudding is gross, but when it comes to dessert, it’s not all about me.)

    Rich Chocolate Pudding

    January 16th, 2012

    I feel guilty about this dessert in general.
    Not because it’s rich and chocolatey (no guilt to be had there, folks), but because it’s really easy to make and I want people to think I toiled for them. If remembering to whisk every once in a while and deciding between what kind of chocolate to use is up your alley of complexity, get cracking on this one.
    (I also feel guilty because I gave the Husband one serving and portioned the rest off for the neighbors. You might choose to be more generous to your own family.)
