I have this saved on my favorites list.  We have Ham on christmas, and before my mom passed away my mom and her best friend whould swap a dish for dinner.  My mom’s friend used to make this and it’s so good.  You can use any bread you have laying around, the more stale the better.  For my family we serve it with dinner, at DH’s house it’s dessert with some ice cream

  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 5 slices white bread, crusts removed and cubed*
  • 20 ounce can crushed pineapple, drained


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 9-inch square pan or souffle dish. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Stir in bread cubes and pineapple. Place in prepared dish. Bake Easy Pineapple Bread Pudding for 40 to 45 minutes.

One of my FAVORITE desserts to make- Chocolatey Raspberry Crumb Bars


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (12-ounce package) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels. (I use 1 cup milk chocolate and 1 cup white chocolate)
  • 1 can (14 ounces)Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
  • 1/3 cup seedless raspberry jam


PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease 13 x 9-inch baking pan.

BEAT butter in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in flour, sugar and salt until crumbly. With floured fingers, press 1 3/4 cups crumb mixture onto bottom of prepared baking pan; reserve remaining mixture.

BAKE for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown.

MICROWAVE 1 cup morsels and sweetened condensed milk in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Spread over hot crust.

STIR nuts into reserved crumb mixture; sprinkle over chocolate filling. Drop teaspoonfuls of raspberry jam over crumb mixture. Sprinkle with remaining morsels.

BAKE for 25 to 30 minutes or until center is set. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.


Ohh they are so yummy!

Holiday shortbread cookies–these are very rich and are festive colors (green, red, and white) too:

cranberrypistachio & white chocolate shortbread cookies
 makes 3 1/2 – 4 dozen

3/4 pound (3 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup chopped dried cranberries
1 cup roughly chopped pistachios
1 cup white chocolate chips

cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3
minutes. mix in the vanilla extract.
in a separate bowl, whisk or sift together the flour and salt.
add the flour & salt to the butter mixture. mix on low speed until it
just starts to come together. add the cranberriespistachios, and
white chocolate a half a cup at a time until it’s incorporated. mix
until the dough forms a ball.
roll into a log about 2 inches in diameter (roll it wider or skinnier
depending on how big you want your cookies). roll the log in some wax
chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
preheat the oven to 350F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
slice the log into 1/4 inch slices. place the slices on the sheet pan.
they don’t spread much, so they can be pretty close together.
bake for 10-13 minutes, or until the edges are just starting to brown.
remove from the pan and cool to room temp.

I present… the family stuffing recipe!! (It sounds really weird, but it’s actually super awesome and my favorite holiday food.) Someone’s great aunt made it. I’m not sure whose?

Also, exact measurements are iffy at best since it’s just in our blood to make this.

Family peanut stuffing!


10C Cubed bread

2-3 Large Onions – chopped

3-4 celery stalks with leaves – chopped

1 Cube Butter

Poultry seasoning

Salt, pepper, garlic

1 can cream of mushroom soup – thinned with broth

1 ½ T peanut butter

Chicken Broth

¼ C Peanuts – chopped

1 egg



  1. Cook chopped onion in large skillet
  2. Add chopped celery when almost done and cook
  3. Add a couple cloves of chopped garlic with celery if desired
  4. Mix in other seasonings
  5. Turn off heat and add in bread cubes and mix
  6. If making the day before, stop here.
  7. In microwave melt peanut butter with cup of broth
  8. Combine cream of mushroom soup with peanut butter, broth and a beaten egg. Mix evenly with hands through bread cube mixture
  9. Add peanuts
  10. Let sit, then add more broth if necessary

I do blue cheese cauliflower cheese. Make a standard cheese sauce, but use cream instead of milk, and crumble a wedge of good blue cheese in. Cover in breadcrumbs or bacon strips and bake at 180c (ie standard, I don’t know farenheit) for about 30 minutes, cauliflower is cooked.

I shouldn’t have read this.  I’m so hungry now!!!


@Baimee-I LOVE stuffing.  OMG.  I had to get a fix yesterday.  I went to COSI and got their turkey and stuffing sandwich!  Not as good as home made, but it curbed the craving for now
