Well, we finished binge-watching Season 4 of Game of Thrones this weekend (dude!) and started watching Orange Is The New Black. We’re totally hooked! I went as Piper for Halloween last year because we found a juvenile orange prison jumpsuit at thrift store for $7. I had never seen the show but, being blonde, I couldn’t turn down this super easy costume opportunity, also because I HATE dressing up for Halloween and wanted to be done with it :) It may have been the most comfortable costume ever.
I also knocked out some serious project and blog stuff (if you follow me on Instagram you got a sneak peek of one of them) as well as made my recipe for this month’s Monthly Ingredient Challenge and oh man, it’s a good one. We’re doing lemons this month and I can’t wait to share my recipe with you guys next Monday!
Speaking of yumminess, bread pudding is one of my favorite desserts and I am a toffee-phine, so when my friend Kendra at Joy In Our Home posted this recipe for Bread Pudding with Cinnamon Toffee Sauce, I couldn’t make it fast enough.
Even better than how amazing this came out was how easy it was to whip up. Our grocery stores have this amazing french bread that’s only $1 and I can’t NOT buy a loaf every time I’m there, but that means I usually have some around that I need to use. So I make alot of bread pudding.
The milk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt get whipped up then poured over the cubed bread. It smells amazing! Then some of the toffee bits get folded in too. Toffee everywhere!
Spread it all out and bake it at 350F for about an hour.
While the bread was baking I whipped up the sauce (aka toffee heaven). It took a while to get all the bits melted but just keep stirring it occasionally and they’ll go.
I love that Kendra’s recipe makes plenty of sauce, I like alot of sauce. I do think I’ll be adding a little bourbon to the sauce next time though ;) It just goes so well with warm bread pudding.
Warm, gooey, sweet ‘n salty amazingness. Kendra, thank you for giving me the absolute best bread pudding recipe I’ve ever had! And I’ve had alot ;)
Now back to more Orange Is The New Black!

Can’t wait to try this.. I absolutely love bread pudding. AND I love OITNB and Game of Thrones! Solid choices.
You’ll love it Cat, I could just drink the sauce. And we’ve been 3-0 for our binge watching choices so far with Breaking Bad before this, I think Mad Men may be our next one. Oh, and I totally was going to just write the acronym for Orange but thought “OITNB” looked too much like “oink” so I didn’t ;)
Completely drooling! This looks absolutely yummy. Believe it or not I haven’t seen any of the Game of Throne episodes yet. I know, I know. I need to get on it! I’ve heard nothing but absolutely amazing things so I’m going to put it on my to do list. I promise. ;)
It’s so hard because there’s so few episodes in each season and you just can’t turn it off! Then you get where we are and have to wait till the next season comes out on Netflix, the worst :) There’a alot of holy-crap and WTH? moments but man is it good!!
I’ve been drooling ever since I saw this… oh. yum.
Just wait till you make it ;)
OMG! That looks incredible! Season 3 of OITNB will be released on June 12 and I can’t wait! :D
So. so. good. We’re almost done with Season One already, so we’ll probably be ready for Season 3 by then ;) We can’t stop watching it!
Ahhh bread pudding is SO good and yours looks particularly mouth-watering. Who knew that soggy soaked bread could taste SO amazing??
I used to think it sounded disgusting and wouldn’t try it. I finally did, one with a warm whiskey sauce, and I was hooked. Kendra’s just raised the bar though!
Awww… Thanks SO much for your sweet words, Emily! And for the link back! It’s our absolute favorite too! So glad you like it! Have a great rest of the week! xo
Of course! It is amaaaaazing!!! Thank you for making my new favorite :)
