"A unique tasting and best bread pudding ever, and don't just take my opinion! Make it for yourself, family or friends, and see! I have read pages of bread puddings on AllRecipes and could not find this one. A family friend's mother has passed this recipe down, and I am excited to share it with you!"


Bread Pudding:
4 cups of loose bread pieces
3 eggs (lightly beaten)
2 cups milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg*
1 teaspoon vanilla
- - -
Hard Sauce:
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg*
1 teaspoon vanilla


1. Bread Pudding: Butter or spray an 8-inch square baking dish. Place the pieces of bread in bottom, evenly. Pour, over the bread pieces, the egg/milk mixture. Bake until 'set' at 325 degrees, approx 25-30 min.

2. Hard Sauce: Lay a stick of butter out to soften. Mix in nutmeg and vanilla, thoroughly. Add powdered sugar gradually, until it reaches the consistency desired. Chill until very firm. Serve by spooning over the bread pudding. It is rich, so usually a couple big spoonsful per serving is enough.

Teriyaki Chicken

Teriyaki Chicken
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
12 chicken drumsticks (I use breasts or thighs as well)

1) Combine the soy sauce, oil, brown sugar, ginger, and garlic powder in a container to marinade chicken. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.

2) Drain and discard marinade. Bake chicken uncovered, at 375* for 35-45 minutes or until juices run clear.
Serve over hot rice!

I love this recipe because I cook it different ways depending on how much time I have. Sometimes I'll combine everything in the crock pot and let it cook all day. (The smells are wonderful) Or I'll combine everything in a pot and boil the chicken for about 45 min. Or reserve some of the marinade and grill the chicken outside for an awesome bar-b-que!
