  1. The most forgiving of recipes, yet. I used recipe #251535 instead of sliced bread and didn't cube it. I subbed recipe #364106 for the Amaretto and sprinkled chopped almonds instead of sliced. I even decreased the water by 1/4 cup. My only problem is that my 12 step program to lay off the sweets ain't workin'. Made for Ragin' Cajun Tag.
  2. Wow! If you need a company-worthy bread pudding recipe, this is it! So easy to make, and yet the flavor is extremely elegant. I did forget to dust it with powdered sugar, but no one seemed to mind. The only change I made was I used 8 slices of bread since it was the cheap, super soft kind. I also used fat free evaporated milk, but it was still very rich.


<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
